  • March 02,2021  18:20
  • Japan share market finished session lower on Tuesday, 02 March 2021, as investors booked part of yesterday gains amid a lack of fresh incentives. At closing bell, the 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average declined 255.33 points, or 0.86%, to 29,408.17. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange dropped 7.63 points, or 0.4%, to 1,894.85.
