Japan stocks gain after Wall Street rally

Tokyo stocks opened higher Friday, with investor sentiment lifted by Wall Street’s overnight rise and the yen’s depreciation against the US dollar, which elevated exporter issues.

As of 9:15 am (5:45 am IST), the 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 206.53 points, or 1.02 percent, from Thursday to 20,370.33, Xinhua reported.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 9.00 points, or 0.59 percent, at 1,531.01.

Machinery, precision instrument, and electric appliance-linked issues comprised those that gained the most in the opening minutes after the morning bell.
