TOKYO — Asian stocks were mostly higher Tuesday as markets calmed from initial jitters over Greece’s election result, with Tokyo shares making a significant rebound, cheered by the cheap yen.

KEEPING SCORE: Japan’s Nikkei 225 stock average jumped 1.3 percent to 17,696.95 and South Korea’s Kospi added 0.4 percent to 1,944.08. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 rose 0.5 percent to 5,528.20. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng lost 0.5 percent to 24,784.95. Southeast Asian markets were also mostly higher.

GREEVE FACTOR: Asian markets were the first to weigh the meaning of Sunday’s election victory by Greece’s  Syriza party, which has vowed to end painful austerity policies that are a condition of the country’s EU-IMF-ECB bailout. But European and U.S. stocks rose later in the global day, as concerns of a disastrous confrontation in which, say, Greece might stop repaying its loans or the eurozone stop funding Athens, eased after both sides said they were open to negotiation
