Nikkei opens lower, softer yen seen supporting exporters

TOKYO, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average opened lower
on Monday, tracking weakness on Wall Street despite
better-than-expected U.S. jobs data, although a softer yen is
likely to limit losses for exporters.
    The Nikkei was down 0.5 percent at 9,008.42 and the
broader Topix was 0.4 percent lower at 749.13.
