Tokyo stocks end mixed  TOKYO: Tokyo stocks ended mixed on Monday as late bargain-hunting recouped some of the morning session's losses, which followed a sharp fall on Wall Street last week and poor September trade figures.   The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange edged 0.09 percent, or 8.03 points, higher to 9,010.71, while the Topix index of all first-section issues slipped 0.09 percent, or 0.67 points, to 753.72.   The Nikkei opened 1.4 percent lower after official data showed ...
