Nikkei fell 0.2 percent on low volumes


The stock market in Japan is closed somewhat lower on Wednesday. The trading session was very quiet due to the holidays. Many international financial markets are closed for Christmas.

The Nikkei index finished 0.2 percent in the minus at 23,782.87 points. The stock market in Shanghai also saw a small minus. Nissan was a striking fall. The car manufacturer sees one of his top drivers leave. Jun Seki, who is in charge of the major reorganization at Nissan, is going to work as chief executive of maker of electrical power sources Nidec.

On a macroeconomic level, it was announced that Chinese imports of American soybeans in November reached the highest level in twenty months.

The doors remained closed in Hong Kong, Seoul and Sydney, among others.
