Tokyo stocks fall in morning on geopolitical risks, weak output data

August 28, 2014

Tokyo stocks fell Friday morning as investor sentiment was cooled by worries over the escalating conflict between Ukraine and Russia as well as Japan's weaker-than-expected industrial output data for July.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average shed 94.78 points, or 0.61 percent, from Thursday to 15,365.08. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was down 5.24 points, or 0.41 percent, to 1,275.50.

Major decliners were led by nonferrous metal, real estate and mining issues.
