Nikkei edges up to 8-week closing high before Bernanke testimony

TOKYO, July 17 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
edged up to an eight-week closing high on Wednesday as investors
hesitated in taking large positions before key events, including
the U.S. Federal Reserve chairman's testimony to a congressional
panel later in the day.
    The benchmark Nikkei rose 0.1 percent to 14,615.04,
the highest closing since May 22, while the broader Topix
 added 0.2 percent to 1,213.24.
