Tokyo's Nikkei up, pound down with eyes on British election
[TOKYO] Tokyo's benchmark stock index opened modestly higher Friday after ousted FBI chief James Comey's explosive testimony, with all eyes on the British election as exit polls pointed to a hung parliament, hitting the pound.
The Nikkei 225 index rose 0.18 per cent, or 36.54 points, to 19,945.80 in early trade, tracking a rise on Wall Street, but the broader Topix index of all first-section issues slipped 0.08 per cent, or 1.25 points, to 1,589.16.
