The Japan share market closed down on Monday, 27 March 2017, weighed by yen appreciation against greenback and worry about the Trump's administration's inability to push through its policy initiatives. Every industry category on the main section lost ground, led by insurance, securities and real estate issues.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index fell 1.44%, or 276.94 points, to 18,985.59, its lowest close since Feb. 9. The broader Topix index of all first-section issues was down 1.26%, or 19.53 points, to end the day at 1,524.39.
