Nikkei 225 leads Asian stocks higher with 7.7 percent surge

HONG KONG (AP) -- Japan's Nikkei 225 stock index has surged 7.7 percent amid strong advances by other Asian markets.

The Nikkei 225 index closed Wednesday up 1,343.43 points, or 7.7 percent, at 18,770.51.

That was the biggest one-day jump since June 2003.

Investor sentiment has been buoyed by a rebound on Wall Street, hopes for stability in volatile Chinese stocks and expectations for corporate tax cuts in Japan.
