Nikkei slips after rally to near 5-year high, but up 5.1 pct on week

TOKYO, April 12 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average retreated
on Friday after recent sharp gains to an almost five-year high,
though it still posted a third straight weekly advance, buoyed
by optimism that bold central bank policies would revitalise the
economy.
    The Nikkei closed 0.5 percent lower at 13,485.14. It
opened up 0.1 percent at 13,568.25, its highest level since July
2008, before moving into negative territory. 
    For the week, the benchmark rose 5.1 percent.
    The broader Topix index edged up 0.1 percent to
1,148.57 in active trade.
