Nikkei 225 Erases Losses From Before Lehman Collapse

March 8 (Bloomberg) -- Japan’s Nikkei 225 Stock Average rose above the level on the last trading day before Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. collapsed, after the yen slid to the lowest in 3 1/2 years against the dollar and data showed Japan’s economy returned to growth.

The Nikkei 225 gained 2 percent to 12,203.13 as of 11:12 a.m. in Tokyo, after climbing as high as 12,223.22. The measure closed at 12,214.76 on Sept. 12, 2008, before Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy.
