Net Stock Buying By Foreign Investors Highest On Record
TOKYO (NQN)--Net purchases of Japanese stocks by overseas investors during the week of March 4-8 totaled 1.01 trillion yen, according to data released Thursday by the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
It was the first time for the figure to exceed 1 trillion yen on a weekly basis since comparable data began to be compiled in the first week of July 1982. The previous record stood at 967.8 billion yen, logged in the first week of March 2004.
The data covers combined trading on the first and second sections of the Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya stock exchanges as well as their markets for start-ups.
