Slight advance in the Nikkei with the Tokyo Stock Exchange pending the value of the yen



The Tokyo Stock Exchange finished today with a slight advance in its main indicator, the Nikkei, losing some of the gains that had been noted in the early hours of the session and amid signs of weakness of the Japanese yen.

The Nikkei, which groups the 225 most representative titles on the market, ended today with an advance of 0.14% or 30.80 points, to 21,565.15 units.

For its part, the Topix, which includes the firms with the highest capitalization, fell 0.22% or 3.51 points to 1,574.89 units.

Analysts said today's session was marked by the decline in the value of the yen against the dollar and other currencies.

But the market is also waiting for the testimony that the president of the US Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, will present before a committee of the US Congress on Wednesday and Thursday.

Between the main titles of the market, Fast Retailing, the signature of the chain of clothes Uniqlo, raised a 1.54%, and Nintendo finished almost flat, with a gain of 0.07%.

For its part, the Softbank technology group advanced 0.46%; Toyota gained 0.39%, and the Sony consortium fell 0.82%.

In the Topix group, today they downloaded 1,399 titles and 664 went up, while 86 ended unchanged.
