JAPAN'S STOCK market had a mixed day's trading as investors digested the impact of the yen's continued rise against the dollar. The Nikkei closed marginally down on the day, falling 23.33 points, or 0.2 per cent, to 13,368.48.

However, major exporters, such as Sony and Toyota, saw marked falls in their share prices amid concerns that a stronger yen would hit overseas earnings. Shares in Sony closed down 70 yen at 7,470, while Toyota fell 80 yen to 2,770.
