Japan July coincident indicator index down 0.3 point

 TOKYO, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Japan's index of coincident
economic indicators fell a preliminary 0.3 point in July from
June, marking the first decline in four months, the Cabinet
Office said on Wednesday, suggesting a rapid recovery following
the March earthquake and tsunami is levelling off.	
 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, rose 2.7 points from
June.	
 The government maintained its assessment that the coincident
index suggested the economy was improving.	
 Details were as follows:
