TOKYO, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices edged lower on Tuesday as Tokyo equities bounced after several days of losses and curbed demand for safe-haven debt.
The benchmark 10-year JGB yield rose 1 basis point to 0.115 percent and the 20-year yield was also 1 basis point higher, at 0.635 percent.
The Nikkei gained 1.3 percent, recovering some losses after a 3-day losing streak, during which it sank to a seven-month trough.
JGBs also came under mild pressure as Tuesday’s regular bond-buying operation conducted by the Bank of Japan attracted stronger offers to sell from market participants compared to the previous operation.
The BOJ offered to buy 880 billion yen ($7.81 billion) of one- to 40-year JGBs on Tuesday.
