|By:, SA News Editor

Japanese stocks rebounded to a 3-1/2-week high Monday, led by exporters and others due to a weak yen (which struck a seven-month low against the dollar this morning).

The Nikkei closed at yet another record high since July 31, climbing 0.5% to 15,613.25, despite trading volume hitting its lowest in a week.

The Topix gained 0.4% to 1,291.31, while the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 rose 0.4% to 11,751.23.
