Sensex, Nifty, Share Prices LIVE: Japanese stocks opened strong buoyed by optimism from a robust US economy that lifted Wall Street last week. The Nikkei 225 surged 1.64%, reaching 32,836.77 points, while the broader Topix index rose 1.26% to 2,353.84. Conversely, South Korea’s KOSPI index saw modest gains, and Australia’s S&P ASX 200 index climbed marginally. A weaker yen against the dollar also favoured Japanese exporters in early Asian trade.
