[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened higher on Thursday, after US stocks finished lower amid nagging questions about two days of wild price swings.

The benchmark Nikkei index, which fell nearly five per cent on Tuesday before rebounding 0.16 per cent on Wednesday, edged up 0.38 per cent, or 81.24 points, to 21,726.61 in early trade.

The broader Topix index was up 0.51 per cent, or 8.84 points, at 1,758.75.
