Economy

Tokyo stocks fell slightly Tuesday morning, pressured by overnight declines on Wall Street, with many investors taking to the sidelines amid a lack of fresh trading cues.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average fell 77.27 points, or 0.23 percent, from Monday to 33,370.40. The broader Topix index was down 10.63 points, or 0.45 percent, at 2,371.13.

On the top-tier Prime Market, decliners were led by air transportation, marine transportation and securities house issues.
