The Japan share market finished edge above the neutral line on Wednesday, 30 November 2016, after official data indicated Japan's industrial production rose for a third consecutive month in October, with a slight gain just beating the median forecast of economists, as the nation's exports compensate for weak domestic spending. Market gains were, however, capped ahead of key events from OPEC talks to the series of key economic events and Italy's referendum.
Total 17 out of 33 TSE industry category on the main section gained ground, led by Securities & Commodities Futures, Glass & Ceramics Products, Fishery, Agriculture & Forestry, and Construction issues, whilst Iron & Steel, Nonferrous Metals, Mining, and Oil & Coal Products issues being major losers. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 0.01%, or 1.44 points, to close at 18,308.48, while the broader Topix index of all first-section issues gained 0.06%, or 0.86 point, to 1,469.43.
