Nikkei scales 21-month high on new government hopes

TOKYO, Dec 27 (Reuters) - The Nikkei share average climbed
to a 21-month high on Thursday, led by exporters and banks, as
the new Japanese prime minister's vow to battle deflation and a
strong currency buoyed investor risk appetite.
    The Nikkei advanced 0.9 percent to 10,322.98, while
the broader Topix gained 0.8 percent to 854.09.
