Tokyo bonds finished somewhat aloft Tuesday morning after choppy trade as a yen’s debasement opposite a U.S. dollar underpinned export-related shares.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 5.83 points, or 0.03 percent, from Monday to 16,743.32. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on a Tokyo Stock Exchange was adult 1.26 points, or 0.10 percent, to 1,314.50.

Gainers were led by nonferrous metal, banking, and oil and spark product issues.
