Japan’s Nikkei rose to its highest level since 1990 – Kommersant

Japanese stock index Nikkei 225 rose about 2% to 31,444.88 points by 4:18 am Moscow time. During trading, it rose to 31,529.23 points, the highest level since July 1990, reports Reuters.

The rise came amid optimism about a deal between the White House and the Republican Party to increase the US national debt, as well as the weakening of the yen. The value of the Japanese currency for the first time in six months fell below 141 yen per dollar. A weaker currency raises the value of overseas earnings from exporters.

Shares of the 201st company included in the Japanese index rose in price, 15 – fell, 9 – did not change.
