JGBs dip as Tokyo stocks retrace sharp losses
TOKYO, April 10 (IFR) - Japanese government bonds prices dipped on Thursday as Tokyo stocks rebounded from the previous day's sharp losses and dampened demand for safe haven, low yield debt.
The benchmark 10-year cash yield rose 0.5 basis point to 0.615 percent.
The June 10-year futures dipped 0.02 point to 144.89.
Super long JGBs sagged amid caution ahead of Friday's 700 billion yen ($6.87 billion) 30-year debt auction.
Traders said the lack of inclusion of super long JGBs at the Bank of Japan's regular bond-purchasing market operation and overnight losses by longer-dated U.S. Treasuries also dampened sentiment.
