Nikkei rallies at close
(03-06 14:45)

Stocks in Tokyo closed 1.59 percent higher, boosted by a weakening yen and rising expectations that Japan's national pension fund will add more shares to its bond-heavy portfolio.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index added 237.12 points to 15,134.75, while the Topix index of all first-section issues rose 1.27 percent, or 15.46 points, to 1,228.36.—AFP
