TOKYO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond (JGB) prices fell across maturities on Tuesday, taking cues from a rally in Tokyo stocks and overnight losses in U.S. Treasuries, and as investors awaited U.S.-China trade talks due later in the week.
Benchmark 10-year JGB futures fell 0.29 point to 154.95, with a trading volume of 19,545 lots.
The key 10-year cash JGB yield rose 2 basis points (bps) to minus 0.210%.
In the super-long zone, the 20-year yield rose 2.5 bps to 0.200% and the 30-year yield rose 2 bps to 0.375%.
At the shorter end of the curve, the two-year yield rose 1.5 bps to minus 0.325% and the five-year yield rose 2 bps to minus 0.360%.
On the Tokyo stock market, the benchmark Nikkei average advanced 1.0%, led by gains in chip-related issues, ahead of high-level Sino-U.S. talks this week to resolve a damaging trade war.
