Japanese Markets Climb On Open

Tokyo's Nikkei average, the leading Japanese market index, opened up nearly .5 percent in response to U.S. lawmakers' agreement on the $700 billion bailout plan.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Nikkei was up 142.89 to 12,036.05, a bit above its 52-week low, but more than 5,000 below its 52-week high.

The Nikkei opened at 8 p.m. Eastern time and could be a predictor for Wall Street's opening tomorrow morning.

President Bush and lawmakers were eager to show the markets, in Washington and abroad, that they were able to strike a deal before Asia opened Monday morning.

Three Australian markets also opened up on the day.
