Foreign money, nearly two-thirds of it from North America, has piled into the Japan in recent months, fueling a 27 percent jump in the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s benchmark Nikkei 225 Index since May and feeding record-high trading volumes.
Overseas investors plowed a net 4.753 trillion yen (US$40.6 billion; euro33.8 billion) into Japanese shares from July to September alone — more than half of last year’s total — and now account for 60 percent of daily trading, according to Tokyo Stock Exchange data. A quarter of all shares listed in Tokyo are currently owned by non-Japanese investors. (Source: Mainichi)Economy & Politics, Markets )
