Nikkei slips as weak yen eases, risk shunned before U.S. election

TOKYO, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei fell on Monday, as the yen weakened, which triggered profit-taking from last week's gain while investors shunned risk before the winner of the tightly fought U.S. election is known. The Nikkei was down 0.5 percent to 9,007.44, while the broader Topix was 0.6 percent lower at 747.95.
