TOKYO: Tokyo stocks opened lower on Monday after Wall Street shares plunged on anxiety over higher interest rates.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index was down 1.53 percent, or 414.57 points, at 26,690.69 in early trade, while the broader Topix index was down 1.58 percent, or 30.16 points, at 1,874.99.

“Japanese shares are seen starting with falls, following declines in the US market,” where worries over interest-rate hikes dampened investor sentiment, said senior analyst Toshiyuki Kanayama of Monex.

The dollar fetched 128.63 yen in early Asian trade, against 128.51 yen in New York late Friday.
