BUSINESSMAN WALKS IN FRONT OF STOCKS QUOTATION BOARD IN TOKYO.
A businessman walks in front of an electronic quotation board flashing
the day's rise in shares outside a brokerage firm in rainy Tokyo July
7, 2003. The Nikkei average ended at a 10 month high on Monday, up 2.59
percent at 9,795.16, as domestic buying of Toshiba Corp and other blue
chips picked up the slack in the absence of the foreigners who had
powered Tokyo's recent rally. REUTERS/Haruyoshi Yamaguchi
