TOKYO, July 3 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices rose on Wednesday, tracking a surge in global peers, as receding investor risk appetite lifted demand for safe-haven debt.
The five-year JGB yield fell 1.5 basis points to minus 0.255% and the 10-year yield also declined 1.5 basis points to minus 0.150%.
The 20-year yield slid 2 basis points to 0.220%.
Longer-dated JGB yields declined even as the Bank of Japan reduced the amount of 10- to 25-year bonds it offered to buy at Wednesday's regular operation to 180 billion yen ($1.67 billion) from the previous 200 billion.
The reduction by the BOJ was in line with the tweak it announced last week to its JGB purchase plan for July.
U.S. Treasury yields fell to their lowest levels since November 2016 as fading hopes for any near-term Sino-U.S. trade deal revived safe-haven demand, while dovish-sounding comments from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney drove British gilt yields to a 2-1/2-year trough.
