JGBs little changed, capped by weaker U.S. Treasuries

TOKYO, March 14 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices were little changed on Thursday, with a retreat by U.S. Treasuries capping the bond market.

The five-year JGB yield was unchanged at minus 0.170 percent and the 10-year yield nudged up half a basis point to minus 0.045 percent.

The 30-year yield was down half a basis point at 0.565 percent after brushing 0.560 percent, its lowest since November 2016.

The super-long maturities, such as the 30-year, were seen to have fared slightly better, boosted by investors replenishing their inventories before the March 31 fiscal year-end.

U.S. Treasury prices fell on Wednesday on improving risk appetite in the broader markets and a soft 30-year bond auction. (Reporting by the Tokyo markets team, Editing by Sherry Jacob-Phillips)
