Japan’s Nikkei share average rose for a second day on Tuesday, with banks climbing amid a surge in bond yields and chip-related shares tracking gains in Wall Street peers.
The Nikkei .N225 gained 0.67% to 31,776.06 by the midday recess, having risen much as 1.1% earlier in the session.
Of the Nikkei’s 225 components, 151 rose, 73 fell, and one was flat.
Tuesday’s gains put the Nikkei on track to extend a 0.37% rise in the previous session, after the benchmark index fell 3.2% to hit a 2 1/2-month low last week.
