TOKYO -- The Tokyo Stock Exchange has moved a step closer to lengthening stock trading for the first time in seven decades, to 3:30 p.m., as early as fall 2024, Nikkei learned Friday.

The proposed 30-minute extension would give investors more opportunities to participate in the Japanese market, and enable stock prices to better reflect developments here and in other Asian markets, according to an internal report seen by Nikkei.
