Tue Nov 13, 2012 12:12am GMT

TOKYO, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average edged
up in early Tuesday trade after falling for six straight
sessions, but gains may be limited on concerns about a U.S.
fiscal policy standoff that threatens to push the country into
recession.
     The Nikkei rose 0.4 percent to 8,713.39, and the
broader Topix gained 0.2 percent to 724.12.
