SMILING MAN WALKS BY ELECTRONIC STOCK QUOTATION BOARD IN TOKYO.
A smiling man walks by an electronic stock quotation board outside a
brokerage in Tokyo July 8, 2003. Japanese stocks jumped on Tuesday and
the Nikkei average broke above 10,000 for the first time since August,
powered by buying of chip-related issues on hopes for a recovery in the
technology sector. It earlier reached 10,027.60, more than 30 percent
above a 20-year low of 7,607.88 struck on April 28. REUTERS/Haruyoshi
