TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Nikkei share average ticked down in early trade on Tuesday as the yen’s gains against the dollar during a market holiday the previous day raised concerns over exporters.

The Nikkei .N225 dipped 0.1 percent to 8,713.95 after having barely snapped a six-day losing streak on Friday. Japanese markets were closed on Monday for a national holiday. The broader Topix .TOPX was down 0.2 percent at 745.08.
