Shares were mostly higher in Asia early Wednesday, tracking gains in the U.S. and Europe, as the Japanese yen pushed sharply higher. The Nikkei 225 stock index gained 3 percent, or 329.98, to 11,376.90 as exporters shares soared on expectations of stronger sales thanks to the yen's gains against other major currencies.
