TOKYO, Jan 28 Reuters Japanese government bond yields were little changed on Thursday, as investors refrained from making bets ahead of the Bank of Japans bondbuying program schedule announcement a day later.
Bond traders were also closely monitoring a selloff in global equities, which could potentially boost safehaven demand for fixed income if the market rout continues.
Benchmark 10year JGB futures fell 0.01 point to 151.93, but the 10year JGB yield was flat at 0.035.
Both the 20year JGB yield and the 30year JGB yield were flat at 0.440 and 0.645, respectively.
The twoyear JGB yield rose 0.5 basis point to minus 0.130.
The fiveyear yield was flat at minus 0.115.
