More Good News From The Land Of The Rising Sun

Recommended Posts


TOKYO (AFX) - Japanese government bond (JGB) prices closed lower, pushing the yield on the lead 10-year debt to its highest level in nearly six years, amid concerns interest rates overseas will continue to rise, dealers said.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year bond closed 1.965 pct, after hitting 1.980 pct at one point,
a level not seen since June 2000.
The yield was up from 1.925 pct late yesterday.

US Bonds are on the march also:

Overnight, the yield on the
10-year US Treasury topped 5 pct for the first time in nearly four years
after data showed US retail sales increased 0.6 pct in March, with unexpected strength in auto and building materials sales, beating the consensus forecast for a 0.4 pct rise.

Minutes from the B o J look good for a HPC also:


Bank of Japan board sees 'gradual' rate hikes after zero rate policy - minutes
TOKYO (AFX) - The Bank of Japan's policy board agreed at its March 8-9
meeting, at which it ended its ultra-loose quantitative easing policy, that
"gradual" rate hikes will follow a period of zero interest rates, according to
the minutes of the meeting released today.

This next HPC may well be the commendable work of our friend and ally, Mr. Interest Rate-Hike?
