Japan’s Nikkei edged lower on Monday morning as investors were cautious ahead of the earnings season, though better-than-expected U.S. job growth in March limited the downside.

The Nikkei share average eased 0.1 percent to 21,789.34 at the midday break, after opening a tad higher and rising to 21,900.55, the highest point since early December. The broader Topix dropped 0.3 percent to 1,620.25.

In the United States, the Labor Department said nonfarm payrolls rose by 196,000 jobs in March, topping the 180,000 new jobs forecast by economists polled by Reuters.
