Nikkei 225 : 10305 (-31.58)

On the global counter: Wall Street ends lower on poor economic data & Asian markets trading lower; Hang Seng, Nikkei down. The US markets retreated even though several earnings reports beat expectations. This was mainly after economic data missed targets and the dollar strengthened. Putting a damper on the market was the day's economic news. Readings on both PPI and housing starts missed expectations. Producer prices dropped by 0.6% in September, more than the 0.3-percent drop economists had expected. Housing starts were the bigger disappointment. That rose 0.5% last month, less than the 2.8-percent increase expected. In earnings from the US, Yahoo reported a profit that was higher than last year and went past expectations.
