Nikkei edges down on profit-taking before Sunday election

TOKYO, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average edged
down on Friday as investors adjusted their positions before
Sunday's election amid chart signals that the market is
'overbought' after jumping to an eight-month high.
    The Nikkei shed 0.5 percent to 9,702.46 after
closing at the highest level since April 5 on Thursday. The
broader Topix index fell 0.3 percent at 796.96.
