Nikkei steps back from 6-mth high as exporters sag on profit-taking
TOKYO, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Japanese stocks retreated from a 6-month high on Tuesday as a pause in the weak yen trend triggered profit-taking on exporters, which led the market's recent frenetic rise. The Nikkei ended 0.7 percent lower at 15,515.24 after climbing to 15,619.13 on the previous day, within sight of a 5-1/2-year peak reached in May. The Topix shed 0.5 percent to 1,253.02.
