Tokyo stocks slip ahead of China trade data

TOKYO (AFP) – Tokyo stocks slipped Wednesday morning ahead of key Chinese trade figures, as a Japan s upward revision in first-quarter GDP figures cooled hopes for fresh stimulus measures.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange lost 0.33 percent, or 55.27 points to sit at 16,620.18 by the break. The Topix index of all first-section shares fell 0.41 percent, or 5.47 points, to 1,335.30.
