TOKYO, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- Nikkei ended slightly higher Thursday, the fourth straight session, on a weaker yen and a rosy U.S. economic outlook, but its gain was limited due to caution against market overheating.
The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average closed up 10.95 points, or 0. 08 percent, from Wednesday at 14,064.82, its highest level since Aug. 6.
The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was up 1.54 points, or 0.13 percent, at 1,157. 84.
Gainers were led by the steel, sea transport and utilities sectors, while decliners included food, air transport and miscellaneous products issues.
The turnover was about 1,781.0 billion yen (17.87 billion U.S. dollars).
