Japan's Nikkei share average dropped on Thursday - retreating from a one-month high - as the effects of the Bank of Japan's (BOJ) decision not to back away from stimulus faded, with a resurgent yen weighing on automakers in particular. The Nikkei ended the morning session down 1.2% at 26,468.62, retracing about half of Wednesday's 2.5% rally, when the central bank defied bond market pressure and kept policy settings unchanged.
