Tokyo stocks open higher on eased fears over U.S.-China trade woes

Japan Economic Newswire |

Tokyo stocks were sharply higher in early trading on Wednesday as concerns over U.S.-China trade tensions eased following a U.S. decision to delay imposing tariffs on some Chinese imports until December.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average soared 208.58 points, or 1.02 percent, from Tuesday to 20,664.02. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was up 13.90 points, or 0.94 percent, at 1,500.47.

Gainers were led by marine transportation, mining and rubber product issues.
