The yield on the 30-year government bond fell to record lows in the morning on Asian trading hours Thursday, breaking the 2% level for the first time, according to Reuters.

It came just a day after the 30-year government bond touched record lows on Wednesday, in fear of the market after the closely monitored returns on the 1

0-year government bond and the two-year reverse.

After dipping to levels below 2%, the yield on 30-year government bonds improved and was last at 2,0004%. Still, it was higher than the return on 30-year bonds elsewhere in the world. The yield on the 30-year Japanese government bond was 0.155%, while the yield on the 30-year German bundle was -0.10%.

Long-term interest rates have fluctuated this month as worries about US and China developments were and GDP growth – combined with expectations of weak inflation and more aggressive central bank action – has sent traders looking for safer investments.
