It's been a torrid day for Japanese markets so any gains are relative
- Nikkei now 16141.50 vs 16025.94 lows vs 16666.79 opening
USDJPY responding and up to 114.82 from lows of 114.21, and 114.48 when I sat down a short while ago.
Update 05.51 GMT
A little more buying as we approach the unofficial close at the top of the hour. Then we will need to keep an eye on Nikkei futures
