LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said in a national address Tuesday that there was a high risk of a further radioactive leak from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, where a blast occurred earlier at one reactor and another had caught fire. Kan said that everyone within 20 kilometers of the plant should remain calm and evacuate, while those within 30 kilometers should stay indoors. He said efforts to control the situation were ongoing.

MarketWatch: Japan Stocks Continue Plunge



By Brad Frischkorn 

TOKYO—Shares in Japan were sharply lower again Tuesday, with the benchmark Nikkei 225 index down 6.1% in early trade as another explosion hit a key nuclear power plant, heightening concerns about the risk to the facility and broader radiation leaks.
Trading volume was slower so far after Monday's record total, suggesting a more orderly market after the index slumped 6.2% the previous day.
But with all eyes on the nuclear emergency at the key facility in the country's northeast, further fund selling was expected. There is also little clarity on the damage bill for the economy and the government from Friday's 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami, and some major automotive and technology companies are still in a production shutdown. Power outages remain a concern.
The index was recently at 9039.11, its lowest level since early September, having briefly slipped below 9000.
"There is no sense of calmness to examine the health of the Japanese economy as a whole," said Masayoshi Yano, senior market analyst at Meiwa Securities. Analysts put support for the index around 8800.
Shares of Tokyo Electric Power Co., or Tepco, and Tohoku Electric Power remain under the most scrutiny, as the pair operate several nuclear reactors in quake-affected regions. Both stocks remained at limit-down levels in early trading, after going limit-down on Monday. Tepco's limit-down is a 400 yen ($4.90) decline from the previous close, while Tohuku's limit-down is a 300 yen move.
The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said another explosion was heard at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi No. 2 reactor before the market open. Authorities said the explosion inside part of the reactor appears to have caused damage and some staff have been evacuated from the facility.
"If there is a full [reactor] meltdown, Tepco shares may even touch their record low [of 640 yen]," said Monex market analyst Toshiyuki Kanayama. "It's impossible to imagine what's going to happen.
All 33 Topix subindexes were lower with shares of Toshiba, which also makes nuclear power plants, ask-only at an indicated value of 355 yen.

* 30-year Treasury constant maturity series was discontinued on February 18, 2002 and reintroduced on February 9, 2006. From February 18, 2002 to February 8, 2006, Treasury published alternatives to a 30-year rate. See Long-Term Average Rate for more information.
Treasury discontinued the 20-year constant maturity series at the end of calendar year 1986 and reinstated that series on October 1, 1993. As a result, there are no 20-year rates available for the time period January 1, 1987 through September 30, 1993.
Treasury Yield Curve Rates. These rates are commonly referred to as "Constant Maturity Treasury" rates, or CMTs. Yields are interpolated by the Treasury from the daily yield curve. This curve, which relates the yield on a security to its time to maturity is based on the closing market bid yields on actively traded Treasury securities in the over-the-counter market. These market yields are calculated from composites of quotations obtained by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The yield values are read from the yield curve at fixed maturities, currently 1, 3 and 6 months and 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 20, and 30 years. This method provides a yield for a 10 year maturity, for example, even if no outstanding security has exactly 10 years remaining to maturity.
Treasury Yield Curve Methodology. The Treasury yield curve is estimated daily using a cubic spline model. Inputs to the model are primarily bid-side yields for on-the-run Treasury securities. See our Treasury Yield Curve Methodology page for details.
Negative Yields and Nominal Constant Maturity Treasury Series Rates (CMTs). Current financial market conditions, in conjunction with extraordinary low levels of interest rates, have resulted in negative yields for some Treasury securities trading in the secondary market. Negative yields for Treasury securities most often reflect highly technical factors in Treasury markets related to the cash and repurchase agreement markets, and are at times unrelated to the time value of money.
As such, Treasury will restrict the use of negative input yields for securities used in deriving interest rates for the Treasury nominal Constant Maturity Treasury series (CMTs). Any CMT input points with negative yields will be reset to zero percent prior to use as inputs in the CMT derivation. This decision is consistent with Treasury not accepting negative yields in Treasury nominal security auctions.
In addition, given that CMTs are used in many statutorily and regulatory determined loan and credit programs as well as for setting interest rates on non-marketable government securities, establishing a floor of zero more accurately reflects borrowing costs related to various programs.
