TOKYO (Oct 20) -- The Nikkei index on Friday extended its winning streak to 14 days, tying an all-time record. A weaker yen and the ruling coalition's expected victory in elections on Sunday pushed Japanese stock prices higher.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average rose 9.12 points, or 0.04%, to 21,457.64, its highest close since Oct. 18, 1996.
