Tokyo: Stocks open flat


[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened flat Thursday as support from a cheaper yen and gains by pharmaceutical and biotech shares on Wall Street were offset by concerns about a fall in oil prices.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index slipped 0.02 per cent, or 4.76 points, to 20,134.03 in the first few minutes of trading, while the Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.03 points at 1,611.59 yen.
