Nikkei edges higher as chip-related stocks rise, but trade talks cap gains

Japan's Nikkei edged higher on Tuesday morning helped by gains in chip equipment makers, but gains were limited as U.S.-Japan trade talks scheduled this week kept investors cautious.

Investors returned to the market after a national holiday on Monday. The dollar's move above 112 yen level has underpinned confidence among Japan's export-exposed firms.

Tuesday's gainers included large cap stocks such as Tokyo Electron and Advantest Corp, which soared 3.0 percent and 3.4 percent, respectively, tracking steady U.S. tech shares overnight.

The Nikkei share average gained 0.2 percent to 23,909.01 at morning close after dipping in negative territory. The benchmark index has hit a more than eight-month high after rising U.S. yields pushed up financial stocks while the weak yen supported overall sentiment.

The broader Topix gained 0.7 percent to 1,815.91.

Japan and the United States postponed their second round of trade talks in New York to Tuesday from Monday, a Japanese official said, amid concerns in Tokyo that it would face greater pressure to reduce the bilateral trade imbalance.
