JGBs retreat in line with global peers on better risk sentiment

Reuters

TOKYO, April 4 () - Japanese government bond (JGB) prices retreated in line with their global peers on Thursday, with improving investor risk sentiment reducing the appeal of safe-haven debt.

The five-year JGB yield rose half a basis point to minus 0.170 percent and the 10-year yield added 1 basis point to minus 0.045 percent.

Super long maturities fared better after Thursday's 30-year JGB auction attracted ample demand.

Super long JGBs attract steady investor interest as the maturities still offer positive yields.

U.S. Treasury prices fell overnight as hopes for a trade deal between China and the United States and a breakthrough for Brexit triggered a sell-off in the bond market.
