Japan's leading stock market index set a 30-year high on Monday amid stronger-than-forecast corporate earnings.
Japanese stocks edged higher on Wednesday as some investors bought shares of major exporters on the back of a slightly weaker yen, although sentiment was cautious due to a stalemate in talks over additional U.S. economic stimulus. The Nikkei 225 Index ended up 0.41% at 22,843.96, with the industrial and consumer discretionary sectors leading gains. A weaker yen inflates exporters' earnings when repatriated from overseas.
Yields on longer-dated Japanese government bonds rose on Wednesday, tracking gains in Treasuries ahead of a record auction of 10-year U.S. government debt later in the day. Benchmark 10-year JGB futures fell 0.17 point to 151.83, with a trading volume of 20,860 lots. The 10-year JGB yield rose 1 basis point to 0.035%, and the 20-year JGB yield climbed 1.5 basis points to 0.410%.
