Capital Market 

The Japanese share market ended higher on Wednesday, 21 October 2015, as weak Japanese trade data fuelled speculation the Bank of Japan will launch another round of monetary easing.

All 33 TSE first-section sector sub-indexes ended up, with Iron & Steel, Nonferrous Metals, Electric Appliances, and Machinery issues being major gainers. The Stock Average added 75347.13 points, or 1.91%, to end at 18554.28 points, meanwhile the broader Topix index added 1.84%, or 27.53 points, to 1526.81 at the close.
