Tokyo stocks start positive, Nikkei 225 index up 0.69%

TOKYO: Tokyo stocks started positively on Thursday as the yen remained low against the dollar and euro improved.
The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange gained 118.94 points to 17,407.69 at the start.
Official data released early Thursday showed Japan’s trade deficit narrowed by more than a third year-on-year in October, helped by higher exports and lower oil prices.
That offered renewed hope that the yen’s continued slide would boost Japan’s sales of goods abroad and help power a flagging domestic economy.
