Nikkei down by break
(06-10 10:55)

Tokyo shares were down 0.44 percent Tuesday morning, despite a strong lead from Wall Street, as profit-taking and a stronger yen dragged the Japanese market into negative territory.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index, which opened flat, slipped 65.85 points to 15,058.15 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section shares slipped 0.15 percent, or 1.85 points, to 1,232.93. --AFP
