Asian stocks rose, led by a rally in Japanese exporters, as the yen neared a 2 1/2 year-low after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe urged the central bank to double its inflation target. Japanese benchmark index Nikkei 225 rose 84.38 points, or 0.80%, to trade at 10,662.95.

Oil prices for US benchmark West Texas Intermediate settled five cents lower at USD 93.10 a barrel. In London, the Brent contract for February finished at USD 111.76 a barrel, losing 18 cents from Tuesday.
