Tokyo Stocks Rally on Buying on Dips

Tokyo Stocks Rally on Buying on Dips

   Tokyo, Dec. 7 (Jiji Press)--Stocks rallied on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Thursday, supported by buying on dips after the previous day's sharp falls triggered by news on U.S. President Donald Trump's imminent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
   The 225-issue Nikkei average gained 320.99 points, or 1.45 pct, to close at 22,498.03. On Wednesday, the key market gauge plunged 445.34 points, the biggest single-day point loss since Nov. 9, 2016, when the Tokyo market came under heavy selling after then Republican candidate Trump's victory in the U.S. presidential election.
