Nikkei finishes at nearly five-month high
(06-19 14:35)

Tokyo stocks climbed 1.62 percent to finish at a five-month high Thursday, tracking gains on Wall Street that were fuelled by hints from the Federal Reserve that interest rates would stay at record lows well into next year.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index rose 245.36 points to 15,361.16, its highest close since late January, while the Topix index of all first-section shares climbed 1.59 percent, or 19.89 points, to close at 1,269.04. --AFP
