Capital Market 

The share market finished session at fresh two-decade highs on Thursday, 12 October 2017, as investor sentiment was bolstered by tracking new records on Wall Street and as surveys point to a victory for the ruling party in Japan's elections.

The Nikkei 225 rose 0.35%, or 73.45 points, to end at 20,954.72, its eighth straight gain and its best finish since December 1996. The broader Topix index was up 0.20% or 3.32 points, at a decade high of 1,700.13.
