TOKYO, July 4 (IFR) - Japanese government bond prices were narrowly mixed on Friday, with the cash 10-year bond yield flat after strong U.S. payrolls data produced only a small rise in U.S. bond yields.

The two-year yield fell 0.5 basis point to 0.065 percent .

A few domestic life insurers bought the current 10-year JGBs and off-the-run bonds maturing in around 14 years in the morning session.

Ten-year lead Sept JGB futures moved in a narrow 145.62-145.67 range before ending morning trade up 0.04 point at 145.64.

The 10-year U.S. Treasuries yield briefly jumped to 2.69 percent on Thursday from around 2.63 percent after the jobs report, but it came back to end at 2.64 percent.
