Nikkei advances 3pc at break
(06-10 10:46)

Stocks in Tokyo bounced 3.01 percent on the back of a weaker yen and better-than-expected US jobs data which boosted hopes the Federal Reserve will hold off cutting back on stimulus.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index, which lost 6.51 percent last week, was up 3.01 percent, or 387.69 points, to 13,265.22 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section shares jumped 3.78 percent, or 39.91 points, to 1,096.86.--AFP
