Tokyo stocks end flat

Tokyo stocks ended flat on Tuesday, supported in part by dip-buying of selected shares, as global investors gradually return to the market after the holiday break.

Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei 225 index closed 0.03 percent or 6.42 points higher to 19,403.06. The broader Topix index of all first-section issues edged down 0.12 percent or 1.92 points, to 1,536.22.
