Japan’s Nikkei share average dipped on Thursday, with an earlier bounce made on Wall Street gains fading amid lingering concerns that trade conflicts and political risks would hurt the global economy.
The Nikkei was down 0.4% at 20,397.28 as of 0127 GMT. The broader Topix slipped 0.46% to 1,483.49.
There were 72 advancers on the Nikkei index against 143 decliners.
The index rose as much as 0.2% in early trade after all three of the major U.S. stock indexes posted gains overnight.
But the Nikkei’s rise sputtered on underlying concerns towards another flare-up in the U.S.-China trade war and latest developments in the Brexit saga pointing to fresh turbulence in the financial markets ahead.
