Nikkei scales 7-month high on softer yen

TOKYO, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average climbed to a
seven-month high in early trade on Thursday, buoyed by a weaker
yen on persistent speculation the central bank will adopt bolder
action.
    The Nikkei rose 0.8 percent to 9,539.74, while the
broader Topix advanced 1 percent to 789.22.
