TOKYO, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
extended its gains into a fifth day at Tuesday's open and may
test a six-month high of 9,300, helped by U.S. stocks which rose
on signs of progress in resolving a looming fiscal crunch. 
    The Nikkei advanced 0.5 percent to 9,200.60, and the
broader Topix gained 0.7 percent to 767.08.
