Yields on 10-year JGBs track U.S. Treasury lower, other note prices fall | Reuters

Yields on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bonds (JGBs) fell, tracking U.S. Treasury’s yields lower, while prices for notes with other maturities slipped as lowest biddings for the Ministry of Finance’s 20-year note auction were in line with expectations.

The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes fell overnight after a slow factory activity in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region in May casted a doubt on the fast-paced economic recovery.
