Positive start for Nikkei
(05-23 08:57)

Stocks in Tokyo opened 0.72 percent higher after the yen fell against the US dollar on signals that the US Federal Reserve could soon scale back its aggressive stimulus measures. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index, which closed at its best level in more than five years yesterday, added 112.72 points to 15,739.98 at the start.--AFP
