The Japan share market finished session slightly in negative territory on Wednesday, 14 June 2017, as investors were overwhelmingly awaiting conclusion of the US Federal Reserve and its June monetary policy meeting later on the day. Meanwhile, the market's downside was limited thanks to buying of incentive-backed issues.
Shares of oil and coal product, nonferrous metal and insurance-related stocks comprised those that declined the most by the close of play. The benchmark Nikkei 225 edged down 0.08%, or 15.23 points, to close at 19,883.52, while the broader Topix index of all first-section issues slipped 0.11%, or 1.74 points, to 1,591.77.
