Japan gov't bond, futures prices fall in morning.
Prices of 10-year Japanese government bonds and bond futures fell Tuesday morning amid cautions ahead of the release of a 20-year bond auction later in the day.
In interdealer trading, the yield on the No. 280 1.9 percent issue added 0.030 percentage point from Monday's close to finish the morning at 1.845 percent.
The price of the key September futures contract for 10-year bonds shed 0.18 point to 132.50 on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, with the yield up 0.016 percentage point to 2.075 percent.
Bond prices move in the opposite direction to yields.
