Mon Jan 21, 2013 6:04am GMT

TOKYO, Jan 21 (Reuters) - The Nikkei share average fell on
Monday as investors pocketed profits as they stayed cautious
ahead of the outcome of the Bank of Japan's two-day policy
meeting, with expectations for aggressive easing already mostly
priced into the market.
    The Nikkei fell 1.5 percent to 10,747.74 points,
moving further away from a 32-month high of 10,952.31 hit last
Tuesday. The broader Topix dropped 0.7 percent to
905.16.
