Nikkei dips in choppy trade ahead of Fed, touches 1-week low
TOKYO, June 17 (Reuters) - Japanese stocks slipped to a one-week low in choppy trade on Wednesday, as jittery investors awaited the outcome of the U.S. Federal Reserve's policy meeting due later in the day. Lingering concerns over a potential Greek debt default also continued to suppress appetite for riskier assets. The Nikkei share average declined 0.2 percent to 20,219.27 points after dropping to 20,137.33 at one point - its lowest since June 10. The broader Topix dropped 0.4 percent to 1,633.70 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 shed 0.4 percent to 14,740.56. (Reporting by Shinichi Saoshiro; Editing by Kim Coghill)
