Published Thu, Apr 7, 2016 · 06:34 AM

[TOKYO] Japanese stocks edged up on Thursday in choppy trade, snapping a seven-day losing streak as buying in defensive stocks offset weakness in exporters which lost ground on the yen's strength.

The Nikkei share average gained 0.2 per cent to 15,749.84.

The broader Topix rose 0.4 per cent to 1,272.64 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 advanced 0.5 per cent to 11,484.43.
