Massive BOJ-Buying Silences JGB Market

On Monday, the newest 10-year Japanese government bond — the yield on which is used as a benchmark for bank loans and a barometer of trust in government finances — didn’t trade even once.

Traders say it is another sign of how the Bank of Japan’s massive bond buying program has silenced the market.

If the 10-year JGB goes a full 24 hours without being traded, it will be the first time since Dec. 26, 2000, according to the Japan Bond Trading Co., which publishes rates.
That seems likely, since most investors close their books at 3 p.m. Tokyo time.
