Fast Retailing lifts Nikkei

Business | 12 Apr 2019 11:26 am

Japan’s Nikkei share average climbed today but was little changed for the week, as many investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of the U.S. and domestic earnings season and an upcoming 10-day holiday in Japan.

The benchmark Nikkei ended the morning session at 21,841.90, up 130.52 points, or 0.6 percent, on the day, largely thanks to its heavyweight Fast Retailing Co, which soared by 7.8 percent to contribute a hefty 160 points, or 0.7 percent, to the Nikkei, Reuters reports.
