[TOKYO] Japan's Nikkei share average was little changed on Wednesday, unable to extend a two-day winning run as the yen's retreat against the dollar halted and capped the broader market.

Trading was limited with investors staying on the sidelines as they awaited the minutes of the US Federal Reserve's latest meeting for clues on interest rate hikes.

The Nikkei closed down 0.01 per cent at 19,379.87.

The broader Topix rose 0.1 per cent to 1,557.09 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 inched up 0.02 per cent to 13,962.42.
