TOKYO, Sep. 24, 2010 (Kyodo News International) -- The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond fell Friday to end below 1 percent for the first time since late August as Tokyo stocks dropped, boosting investor demand for safer assets.

The yield on the No. 310, 1.0 percent issue, the main barometer of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading down 0.030 percentage point from Wednesday's close to 0.995 percent. It last finished below 1 percent on Aug. 31 at 0.960 percent.

The price of the December futures contract for 10-year bonds gained 0.23 point to 142.88 on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

Buying of safe-haven government bonds gathered pace as Tokyo stocks ended the day lower after briefly turning positive amid talk of Japan's yen-selling intervention, traders said.
