TOKYO, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
on Friday and may test a nine-month high after Wall Street
stocks climbed on hopes for progress in U.S. fiscal talks, with
exporters gaining on a weaker yen.
    The Nikkei gained 1.0 percent to 10,142.09, and the
broader Topix added 0.9 percent to 846.27.
