Nikkei edges up on optimism about easy policy

TOKYO, April 10 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
edged higher on Wednesday, helped by ongoing optimism about the
economic outlook after the Bank Of Japan last week announced a
sweeping monetary expansion campaign.
    But gains were capped on caution that the market may be 
overbought after touching a fresh five-year high on Tuesday.
    The Nikkei gained 0.3 percent to 13,229.00 after
opening a tad lower, while the broader Topix added 0.2
percent to 1,104.06.
