Japan Nikkei takes breather as investors opt for profits
(17:11, 10 Jan 2018)
The Japan share market finished session lower on Wednesday, 10 January 2018, dragged down by profit booking after hitting a 26-year-high on Tuesday. But a halt in the yen's rise against the U.S. dollar served to trim losses over the day. Among 33 TSE sectors, food and precision instrument issues led stocks that declined, while transportation equipment and real estate-linked issues comprised notable gainers. The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average dropped 61.79 points, or 0.26%, to 23,788.20. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, finished 2.82 points, or 0.15%, higher at 1,892.11.
