 TOKYO, June 7 (Reuters) - Japan's index of coincident
economic indicators rose a preliminary 0.3 points in April from
March, the Cabinet Office said on Tuesday, rebounding from a
record drop the previous month in a sign the impact of the March
earthquake and tsunami could be starting to fade.	
 The index of leading economic indicators, compiled using
data such as the number of job offers and consumer sentiment and
a gauge of the economy a few months ahead, fell 3.7 points from
March.
