Nikkei Stock Average approaches record high, expecting soft landing for US economy – Trading companies are sensitive to the economy – Bloomberg

The Tokyo stock market continued to rise on the 16th. The Nikkei Stock Average rose by more than 700 yen at one point, approaching its all-time high set in December 1989. In the United States, the S&P 500 stock index has once again hit a new high on the back of expectations for a soft economic recovery and expectations for interest rate cuts in the second half of the year, and investor sentiment is improving. Industries sensitive to overseas economies, such as trading companies, mining, and steel, rose. Domestic demand-related industries such as real estate and services are also strong.

  • TOPIX is 0.8% higher than the previous day at 2613.29 – as of 11am
  • Nikkei Stock Average rose 0.7% to 38,406.85 yen

The Nikkei average rose to 38,865.06 yen around 10 a.m. The stock is now about 50 yen away from the highest price of 38,915.87 yen based on the closing price.

In the foreign exchange market, the yen exchange rate has remained stable at around 150 yen to the dollar, providing support for export-related stocks. Toyota Motor Corporation also rose by more than 2% at one point, contributing to the rise in the TOPIX.

On the other hand, some semiconductor-related stocks, which had started to be bought earlier, have fallen into negative territory compared to the previous day, weighing on the top of the stock index. In the morning, semiconductor manufacturing equipment giant Applied Materials announced a bullish earnings outlook after the close of trading, and buying was dominated by positive sentiment.
