Capital Market 

The Japan share market declined for second straight session on Tuesday, 29 November 2016, as investors continued locking gains after the benchmark index hit 11-months high at the end of last week and on tracking negative lead from Wall Street overnight and a pause in the yen's recent weakening..

Total 20 out of 33 TSE industry categories on the main section declined, with Insurance, Iron & Steel, Securities & Commodities Futures, and Glass & Ceramics Products being major losers, while Fishery, Agriculture & Forestry, Chemicals, and Foods issues being notable gainers. The benchmark 225 index dropped 0.27%, or 49.85 points, to close at 18,307.04, while the broader Topix index of all first-section issues lost 0.07%, or 1.01 points, to 1,468.57.
