Japan's Nikkei rose in volatile trade on Wednesday morning as investors awaited the results of U.S. midterm elections.
The Nikkei share average was up 0.2 percent at 22,191.48 in midmorning trade. It dipped briefly into negative territory after soaring 1.1 percent to a two-week high.
The polls in more than half the 50 U.S. states closed during Asian morning trade after a divisive election campaign that will shape the future of Donald Trump’s presidency.
Most of the key races that will decide control of the U.S. Congress were still too close to call.
The broader Topix gained 0.6 percent to 1,669.80. Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones 1,476 to 564.
