Tokyo: Shares lower in opening deals on stronger yen
[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened lower on Tuesday as a stronger yen weighed on exporters, despite data showing that Japan's economic contraction in the fourth quarter of 2015 was smaller than initially thought.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange lost 0.13 per cent, or 21.84 points, to 16,889.48 in opening deals, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares fell 0.30 per cent, or 4.12 points, to 1,357.78.
