The yield on the benchmark Japan 10-year JGB fell to 0.05% heading into the end of June 2021, much higher than 5-month lows of 0.024% touched early in the month but off 2018-highs touched in March, in line with its US counterpart yields. The Bank of Japan announced an extension of its pandemic-relief programme and maintained its ultraeasy monetary policy stance while the Federal Reserve adopted a more hawkish tone and sped up expected pace of policy tightening. In Japan the macroeconomic scenario is a bit different than in the US because inflation remains low and the GDP is struggling to recover from the coronavirus hit due to a slow vaccine rollout and a resurgence in infections. source: Ministry of Finance, Japan
