Tokyo - Tokyo shares traded in a tight range on Thursday morning, following gains in New York overnight on continued optimism for global markets.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index, which opened higher, slipped 49.46 points, to 19 544.70 by the lunch break. The broader Topix index of all first-section issues added 0.57 points, to 1 555.05.
