Tokyo: Stocks posts longest string of gains in 30 years

[TOKYO] Tokyo's benchmark index rose again on Thursday to post its longest string of gains in nearly 30 years, as corporate earnings get into full swing and voters in the world's number three economy go to the polls this weekend.

The Nikkei 225 gained 0.40 per cent, or 85.47 points, to close at 21,448.52, its 13th winning session and the longest positive run since early 1988, during the country's bubble economy years.

The broader Topix index tacked on 0.31 per cent, or 5.40 points, to finish at 1,730.04.
