Nikkei Stock Exchange

The Nikkei

日経

Electronic Stocks Board


The Nihon Keizai Shimbun or Nikkei (Japan's equivalent of Britain's The Financial Times) is the world's largest-selling business daily and provides information on Japan's stock markets, business trends and politics. Information from the Nikkei is often displayed on electronic boards like the one pictured above outside banks and at major railway stations. During the "Bubble Years" of the 1980s it was not unusual to see groups of people gathered outside the boards eagerly checking their portfolios.
