The Japan share market finished session higher on Tuesday, 10 October 2017, as investor sentiment was bolstered by easing fears of North Korean threats on reports that North Korea had not yet taken any provocative action to mark an anniversary. Investor spirits also picked up with an upbeat view on the US and Japanese economies supporting sentiment. TSE sectors were mostly higher, with construction, service and retail-linked issues comprised issues that gained the most by the close of play.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index gained 0.64 per cent, or 132.80 points, to close at 20,823.51, the sixth consecutive gain and marking its highest close since July 2015. The broader Topix index rose 0.47 per cent, or 7.98 points, at 1,695.14, the highest since July 2007. Japanese markets were closed on Monday for a national holiday.
