The Japan share market finished session down on Monday, 04 December 2017, snapping three-session winning streak, hit by profit booking induced by Wall Street's fall on Friday on rekindled concerns over suspected shady links between then presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign and Russia ahead of the 2016 election. However, the Tokyo market's downside was capped by weaker yen and hopes for major tax cuts in the United States following the Senate's passage of the much-awaited tax reform bill during weekend.
The Nikkei 225 average lost 111.87 points, or 0.49%, to close at 22,707.16. The Topix, which covers all first-section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, was down 9.66 points, or 0.54%, to finish at 1,786.87.
