Tokyo: Nikkei index ends just shy of pre-Brexit level
[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks rose Wednesday on stimulus hopes with the benchmark index ending just shy of its level before Britain's vote to leave the European Union sent markets into a nosedive last month.
The Nikkei 225 closed 0.84 per cent, or 135.78 points, higher at 16,231.43, less than 10 points shy of its pre-Brexit level.
The broader Topix index of all first-section shares jumped 1.13 per cent, or 14.53 points, to 1,300.26, finishing at its highest level in about a month.
