Benchmark 10-year JGB futures fell 0.17 point to 151.83, with a trading volume of 20,860 lots.

Japanese stocks edged higher on Wednesday as some investors bought shares of major exporters on the back of a slightly weaker yen, although sentiment was cautious due to a stalemate in talks over additional U.S. economic stimulus. The Nikkei 225 Index rose 0.36% to 22,832.63 by 0203 GMT, with the industrial and consumer discretionary sectors leading gains. A weaker yen inflates exporters' earnings when repatriated from overseas.
Japanese shares slipped to near three-week low on Monday as concerns about a spike in new cases of COVID-19 worldwide poured cold water on hopes of a quick recovery from a coronavirus-driven global recession. The broader Topix lost 2.54% to 1537.89.
