Nikkei steps back from 6-mth high as exporters sag on profit-taking

Tue Nov 26, 2013 1:14am EST

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.
