JGBs edge higher as U.S. equity futures decline

TOKYO, April 22 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices edged higher in thin trade on Monday as a decline in U.S. equity futures dampened risk appetite, boosting demand for debt.

Benchmark 10-year JGB futures ticked up 0.03 points to 152.55, with a trading volume of just 13,009 lots, the lowest since Oct. 22.

The benchmark 10-year JGB yield and the 20-year yield fell half a basis point each, to minus 0.035 percent and 0.385 percent, respectively.

The 30-year yield and the 40-year yield also shed 0.5 basis point each, to 0.580 percent and 0.615 percent, respectively.

S&P 500 e-mini futures were last down 0.2 percent as U.S. markets were set to open again following the Good Friday holiday. (Reporting by Tokyo Markets team; Editing by Shreejay Sinha)
