Review: Japan's Nikkei grows to 2-week high

The Japanese stock market rose on Wednesday to two-week highs as investors closed positions with the focus moving to Fed monetary policy after President Donald Trump's address to Congress did not disclose any details of his further policies.

The Nikkei rose by 1.4% to 19.393.54 points - its highest close since February 15, as traders generally closed out trading positions due to the absence of negative factors in Trump's speech according some alleviation.

The broader Topix index rose by 1.2% to 1.553.09 points, the Nikkei 400 increased by 1.2% to 13.917.46 points.
