Nikkei ends lower
(01-16 15:35)

Tokyo stocks closed 0.39 percent lower Thursday, losing steam after early buying stoked by a record close on Wall Street and the dollar's gain against the yen.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index fell 61.53 points to 15,747.20, while the Topix index of all first-section shares slipped 0.01 percent, or 0.13 points, to 1,294.39. --AFP
