Up on the Tokyo Stock Exchange – Västerbotten Courier

The Tokyo Stock Exchange rose at the opening on Wednesday, then the stock exchanges in the US and Europe had started to perk up after Britain’s surprise decision late last week to leave the EU.

A meeting between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Finance Minister Taro Aso and Japanese central bank chief Haruhiko Kuroda, to discuss how the effect of brexit be handled, was well received by investors.

the Nikkei 225 index went up by 1 , 3 percent, while the broader Topixindex climbed 1.4 percent.

Hong Kong Hang Seng index followed Tokyo’s example in opening, albeit in a more modest extent, and increased by 0.7 percent, while Shanghai’s composite index was slightly up by 0.2 percent.
