TOKYO, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond yields pulled back from three-year lows on Friday as investor appetite for risk assets returned amid an uptick in U.S.-China trade optimism, curbing demand for safe-haven debt.
The five-year JGB yield nudged up half a basis point to minus 0.355%, moving away from a three-year trough of minus 0.365% brushed midweek.
The benchmark 10-year JGB yield was 1 basis point higher at minus 0.280%, after stooping to minus 0.290% the previous day, its lowest since July 2016.
JGB yields were also nudged higher after the Bank of Japan trimmed the amount of five- to 10-year bonds it offered to buy at its regular operation to 400 billion yen ($3.80 billion) from 450 billion yen in an attempt to slow the recent slide in yields.
JGB yields had fallen across the curve to multi-year lows, tracking a steep fall in global peers as U.S.-China trade war concerns gripped the broader markets through much of the week.
