Well-Trained Japanese Investors are Shorting the Nikkei
We have been a bit surprised to learn that short bets on Japanese stocks have recently surged significantly. Evidently, Japanese investors are well-trained by now: they don’t expect rallies in Japan’s stock market to hold or continue. However, Japanese […]

Last week’s drama was not the beginning of something as the pessimists and cynics would have it. Our inclination that it was the end of something–that the pendulum had swung unreasonably far unreasonably quickly has is panning out Equities have trended higher. The S&P 500 […]
