Tokyo: Nikkei edges up, gains capped as ex-dividend adjustment weighs
[TOKYO] Japan's Nikkei share average eked out small gains in choppy trade on Wednesday, but gains were limited as ex-dividend share price adjustments pressured the market and offset positive sentiment from strong U.S. shares overnight.
The Nikkei rose 0.1 per cent to 19,217.48 after traversing negative and positive territory.
The broader Topix shed 0.2 per cent to 1,542.07 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 declined 0.2 per cent to 13,786.12.
