The Tokyo Stock Exchange finished up 1.72% on Wednesday with the decline of the yen due to expectations of further easing measures by the Bank of Japan (BoJ) following its monetary policy meeting on Friday.
the trend was also supported by information from the Fuji TV channel by which Prime Minister Shinzo Abe could soon announce a fiscal stimulus package amounting to 27,000 billion yen (231 billion euros). The Nikkei gained 281.78 points 16,664.82 and the Topix, broader, took 14.73 point (+ 1.13%) to 1,321.67. The yen lost more than 0.7% against the dollar to 105.40 yen after a jump of more than 1%.
