Nikkei opens higher on falling yen
(12-03 09:06)

Tokyo stocks opened 0.59 percent higher on Tuesday with investor sentiment buoyed by the yen's fall against the dollar.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index was up 92.47 points to 15,747.54 at the start, AFP reports.
The dollar Monday rose against major currencies after a positive manufacturing report boosted speculation that the US Federal Reserve could taper its bond-buying program more quickly.
The dollar was at 102.95 yen early Tuesday, almost flat from 102.94 yen in New York Monday afternoon but up from the lower half of the 102-yen range before the Tokyo stock market closed Monday.
