TOKYO, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Longer-dated Japanese government bond prices slipped on Thursday as a rally in Tokyo stocks dimmed the allure of safe-haven debt.
The benchmark 10-year JGB yield rose 0.5 basis point to 0.110 percent. The 30-year yield was also 0.5 basis point higher, at 0.835 percent.
Shorter-dated JGBs, on the other hand, received some support after a five-year debt auction attracted firm investor demand.
The bid-to-cover ratio, a gauge of demand, at the 2 trillion yen ($17.95 billion) five-year sale rose to 5.53 from 3.95 at the previous auction in August.
The new five-year JGBs were seen to have drawn demand from both domestic and foreign investors.
The five-year yield stood unchanged at minus 0.070 percent .
