The Japan share market finished nearly flat for second straight session on Thursday, 20 April 2017, as halt in yen appreciation and the country's strong trade data lifted sentiment. However, upside was capped as investors remained cautious ahead of global risk events such as the first-round of French presidential elections at the weekend and mounting tensions over North Korea. The Nikkei 225 share average ended 0.01% lower at 18,430.49 while the broader Topix gained 0.09% to 1,472.81.
