Nikkei 225 falls as Japanese economy contracts

The Nikkei 225 plunged 3.0 percent on Monday after the Japanese government reported that the economy contracted 0.4 percent in the third quarter, the second consecutive quarterly contraction.

However, US investors shrugged off the news. The S&P 500 rose 0.1 percent on Monday to close at another record high.
