Nikkei slips, failing to hold 9,800 again

 TOKYO, March 1 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average fell
on Thursday and failed to hold 9,800 for the second day in a
row, as domestic investors locked in profits after the index
rallied more than 10 percent last month and posted its best
February performance in two decades.	
 The Nikkei ended 0.2 percent lower at 9,707.37 after
trading as high as 9,865.75 earlier in the session, while the
broader Topix was down 0.5 percent at 831.54
