TOKYO, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
rebounded from the previous session's one-week closing low as
comments by U.S. policy makers hinting at progress in reaching a
fiscal deal with the White House boosted investors' risk
appetites.
    The Nikkei advanced 1.0 percent on Thursday to
9,400.88 points, climbing above its five-day moving average at
9,377.65.
    The broader Topix gained 1.0 percent to 779.44.
