TOKYO, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks opened higher Friday as robust U.S. economic data for August sent the U.S. dollar higher against the yen, which helped propel exporter issues here.
As of 9:15 a.m., the 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 64.89 points, or 0.31 percent, from Thursday to 21,150.83.
The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 2.42 points, or 0.16 percent, at 1,536.88.
Machinery, securities house and transportation equipment-linked issues comprised those that gained the most in the opening minutes after the morning bell.
