Nikkei falls 0.6 pct, weak Chinese shares weigh

TOKYO, Dec 28 (BestGrowthStock) – Japan’s Nikkei average fell 0.6
precent on Tuesday as falls in Chinese shares and a slightly
firmer yen prompted profit-taking, but it was supported by strong
Japanese output data and healthy technical signals.

The Nikkei average was rangebound in thin year-end trading as
investors were less enthusiastic about taking more buy positions
after a gain of 0.8 percent the previous day.

The benchmark Nikkei (.N225: ) finished the day down 63.36
points at 10,292.63.

The broader Topix index (.TOPX: ) fell 0.2 percent or 1.85
points to 902.83.
