Nikkei 225 Erases Losses From Before Lehman Collapse
Japan’s Nikkei 225 Stock Average (NKY) 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.
