Wed Nov 28, 2012 12:08am GMT

TOKYO, Nov 28 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average slipped in
early trade on Wednesday, on track to end a four-day winning
streak, on concerns that an apparent lack of progress in the
fiscal policy standoff in the United States could trigger a
recession.
    The Nikkei eased 0.4 percent to 9,382.62 after it
hit a seven-month closing high on Tuesday. The broader Topix
 fell 0.4 percent to 778.55.
