TOKYO, Feb 27 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices were little changed on Wednesday as strength in Tokyo shares dampened demand for debt.
The five-year and 10-year JGB yields were unchanged at minus 0.170 percent and minus 0.030 percent, respectively.
The 30-year yield nudged up half a basis point to 0.605 percent.
The bond market drew mild support from overnight gains in U.S. Treasuries and a regular debt-buying operation conducted by the Bank of Japan.
The central bank on Wednesday offered to buy 1.18 trillion yen ($10.67 billion) of one- to 10-year JGBs.
Japan’s Nikkei was up 0.5 percent, near the two-month peak scaled the previous day.
