The two- to five-year spread stood at 20 basis points, off its year-to-date high of 22.5 ...

JGBs gain after BOJ surprises easing TOKYO: Japanese government bond prices rose on Wednesday, with the yield on two-year debt dropping to its lowest level since October 2010, a day after the Bank of Japan unexpectedly eased policy.
