TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Japan’s Nikkei share average surged to a six-day high on Tuesday, as a combination of a tech-led rally on Wall Street, gains in Asian markets and extended falls in the yen led to broad-based buying.
The Nikkei .N225 ended the day up 1.8 percent at 21,503.69 after brushing 21,568.48, its highest since March 6.
The index pulled away from a three-week low of 20,938.00 plumbed on Monday after much weaker-than-expected February U.S. job data knocked global shares lower.
“The fact that U.S. shares managed to rise despite a fall by Boeing (NYSE:BA) has lent support to domestic stocks,” said Yoshinori Ogawa, senior strategist at Okasan Securities.
