JGB yields fall on bearish stocks, fair auction results

- Japanese government bond yields dipped on Tuesday, as sharp fall in Japanese stock prices prompted safety bids in JGBs while an auction of 10-year JGBs drew fair demand.

The market was underpinned by a risk-averse mood in global financial markets as rising inflation worries hit global stocks, especially those with stretched valuations. MKTS/GLOB.T

Benchmark 10-year JGB futures 2JGBv1 rose 0.07 point to 151.47 while the yield on the current 10-year JGB yield JP10YTN=JBTC fell 0.5 basis point to a two-week low of 0.075%.

The auction of 2.6 trillion yen ($23.89 billion) 10-year JGBs by the Ministry of Finance on Tuesday attracted bids 3.04 times the offer.

While the bid-to-cover dropped from 3.54 times in the previous auction, traders said the results were in line with market expectations.

The 20-year JGB yield JP20YTN=JBTC fell 0.5 basis point to 0.440%, its lowest in two weeks while the 30-year yield JP30YTN=JBTC was flat at 0.645%.

The five-year yield JP5YTN=JBTC was flat at minus 0.100%. ($1 = 108.83 yen)
