Nikkei ends down in choppy trade

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Nikkei average slid down 0.4 percent on Thursday after lurching in and out of positive territory as strong Australian jobs data was offset by poor Chinese trade figures and concerns about instability in the euro zone.

The Nikkei .N225 closed down at 9,009.65, while the broader Topix .TOPX inched down 0.1 percent to 765.42.
