Asian stocks bounced on Tuesday with Chinese markets reversing some of their previous plunge amid official efforts to calm virus fears.

The 10-year JGB yield rose 0.5 basis point to minus 0.060pc, while the 20-year JGB yield rose 0.5 basis point to 0.245pc.

The 30-year JGB yield was flat at 0.380pc.
