Mon Oct 22, 2012 2:06am EDT

TOKYO, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average inched up
on Monday to mark its sixth straight day of gains, as a softer
yen and expectations of easing from the Bank of Japan outweighed
disappointing U.S. earnings from General Electric and
McDonald's Corp.
    The Nikkei rose 0.1 percent to 9,010.71, above the
psychologically key 9,000 level. The broader Topix index 
dropped 0.1 percent to 753.72.
