Revamp of inheritance tax could boost Tokyo stock trading

TOKYO -- A change in the inheritance tax code long sought by Japan's securities industry may help revitalize stock trading among domestic investors.

     The Nikkei Stock Average closed in on the 20,000 level Thursday, touching a midday high of 19,959. But the gain narrowed after the Bank of Japan decided against ratcheting up monetary easing further, with the index ending at 19,859.
