Nikkei Opens Tad Lower On Wall St Losses
TOKYO (NQN)--Tokyo stocks opened slightly lower Wednesday, with the Nikkei Stock Average sliding 19.58 points to begin the day at 14,713.03.
Selling surged after the Dow Jones industrial average closed lower for the fourth straight trading day overnight amid uncertainty about U.S. fiscal conditions and monetary policies.
However, the decline appears limited for now because some investors are buying stocks on expectations of a supplementary budget of about 5 trillion yen that the Japanese government is currently considering.
