About

The Nikkei 225, or the Nikkei Stock Average, more commonly called the Nikkei or the Nikkei index, is a stock market index for the Tokyo Stock Exchange. It has been calculated daily by the Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper since 1950. It is a price-weighted index, operating in the Japanese Yen, and its components are reviewed once a year. The Nikkei measures the performance of 225 large, publicly owned companies in Japan from a wide array of industry sectors. The Nikkei 225 began to be calculated on 7 September 1950, retroactively calculated back to 16 May 1949. Since January 2010, the index is updated every 15 seconds during trading sessions. The Nikkei 225 Futures, introduced at Singapore Exchange in 1986, the Osaka Securities Exchange in 1988, Chicago Mercantile Exchange in 1990, is now an internationally recognised futures index. The Nikkei average has deviated sharply from the textbook model of stock averages, which grow at a steady exponential rate. The average hit its all-time high on 29 December 1989, during the peak of the Japanese asset price bubble, when it reached an intra-day high of 38,957.44, before closing at 38,915.87, having grown sixfold during the decade.
