REFILE-Nikkei rises to 7-mth closing high helped by weak yen

TOKYO, Dec 6 (Reuters) - The Nikkei average climbed to a
seven-month closing high above the 9,500 mark on Thursday,
encouraged by a yen kept weaker through persistent speculation
the central bank would adopt bolder action to pull Japan out of
deflation under a likely new government.
    The Nikkei rose 0.8 percent to 9,545.16, the highest
closing level since April 26. The broader Topix advanced
0.9 percent to 788.74.
