TOKYO, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices were little changed across the board on Thursday, capped by robust stocks and weaker U.S. Treasuries.
The two- and 10-year JGBs were unchanged at minus 0.110 percent and 0.115 percent, respectively.
The 30-year yield was also flat, at 0.850 percent .
Thursday’s 1 trillion yen ($8.91 billion) 20-year JGB auction still managed to attract ample demand, with the maturities seen to have attracted buyers after the recent cheapening of super long bonds.
The bid-to-cover ratio, a gauge of demand, at the 20-year auction was 4.03, declining slightly from 4.26, the average from the past 12 sales.
Treasuries prices fell on Wednesday and the 10-year note yield hit fresh four-month highs as the market shrugged off trade fears and mounting inflation and strong economic data raised expectations of a hawkish Federal Reserve meeting next week.
