Tokyo gives up gains
(04-10 14:34)

Stocks in Tokyo ended flat, losing early gains driven by Wall Street's rally as exporters took a hit from the yen's rise.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index inched up 0.43 points to finish at 14,300.12, after rising 1.11 percent at the open. The Topix index of all first-section shares edged 0.08 percent lower, or 0.95 points, to 1,149.49.—AFP
