This incredible milestone indicates that Nikkei index has performed well this year.

Despite Japan’s overseas spending power being minimized due to decline in yen, it still have proved its potential for overseas investors. At the same time, the Japanese officials have been focusing on corporate governance reforms that helped boost the market’s attention. 

Meanwhile, analyst have expressed their thoughts about Nikkei’s new all-time high. Tsutomu Yamada, a senior analyst at Au Kabucom Securities says “For us traders, this marks the arrival of a new era. It feels like the stock market is telling us that we’ve finally escaped from deflation and a new world has opened up. Compared with 34 years ago, the make-up of the stock market is totally different. Today, looking at the Nikkei average as a profitable security, it’s still quite easy to buy. 39,000 is just a waypoint.
