Asian bourses made substantial gains on the back of upcoming Japanese elections and China’s rate cut.

As the yen falls further, so stocks are increasing with exports high from Japan. The Japan225 [Nikkei] swelled further to achieve 17915.06 overnight from 17756.59. Japan’s elections are only 10 days away and polls are making it clear that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will be elected for another term. This political stability has allowed companies to plan and stocks to stabilize giving investors the confidence they need to support the indices.
