Japan's Nikkei share average inched higher today to hit a three month closing high for the second session in a row as risk appetite remained robust and a softer yen provided support to recently battered exporters.
The Nikkei ticked up 0.1 percent to 9,171.16, breaking above its 26-week moving average at 9,150.04.
The broader Topix slipped 0.2 percent to 764.66. ( C) Reuters
