Nikkei at 8-mth highs, Wall St rally makes markets less edgy over trade

Japan’s Nikkei advanced to fresh eight-month highs led by an upbeat Wall Street performance, with commodity stocks rising as investors appeared to gravitate to the view that the U.S.-China trade row would be less damaging to growth than first feared.

The Nikkei share average gained 0.8 percent to 23,864.04 in midmorning trade, the highest level since January 24. The market eyes another milestone ahead, as the Nikkei edges closer to the 24,129.34 hit on Jan. 23, a break of which will put it at the highest point since November 1991.

For the week, the Nikkei has risen 3.1 percent so far.
