TOKYO, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average edged
down at Monday's open as the Bank of Japan began a two-day
policy meeting, after expectations the central bank will take
aggressive measures against deflation helped to push the
benchmark last week to a 32-month high.
    The Nikkei edged down 0.3 percent to 10,877.66 while
the broader Topix lost 0.3 percent to 908.94.
