TOKYO, July 20 (BestGrowthStock) – Japan’s Nikkei average fell 1.2

by worry over the pace of U.S. economic recovery, disappointing
U.S. corporate results and a strong yen.

Traders returned from a three-day weekend and were playing
catch-up with other Asian markets that fell on Monday due to a
sharp drop in U.S. consumer sentiment.

after earlier falling as much as 1.7 percent, while the broader
Topix (.TOPX: ) lost 1 percent to 832.26.
