TOKYO, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices dipped on Tuesday as stocks advanced and dimmed the safe-haven allure of debt, although market action was limited ahead of the closely-watched U.S. midterm elections.
The five-year JGB yield and the benchmark 10-year yield each rose half a basis point to minus 0.080 percent and 0.130 percent, respectively.
A debt auction on Tuesday still managed to attract sufficient demand.
The bid-to-cover ratio, a gauge of demand, at the 400 billion yen ($3.53 billion) 10-year inflation-linked JGB sale rose to 3.70 from 3.12 at the previous sale, with the new bonds seen to have drawn bids from investors such as pension funds.
