Nikkei gains for 2nd day in row led by large caps; steel sector shines

TOKYO, July 23 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average rose for
the second straight day on Tuesday in volatile trade, with
traders citing opportunistic buying in index heavy-weights such
as SoftBank Corp and Sony Corp.
    The steel sector also benefited from a media report citing
price hike in steel products, sending the benchmark Nikkei
 up 0.8 percent to 14,778.51 after falling as low as
14,549.06 in early trade. The Topix added 0.5 percent to
1,222.72.
