Nikkei Plunges 420 Points, Topix Tumbles 3%, Most Since March

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/02/2014 03:14 -0400

Define irony. Literally hours after financial entertainment outlet CNBC wrote an article in which it said that “As fourth quarter kicks off, there’s one market in Asia that has investors excited: Japan” the Nikkei crashed.

First, some more humor from CNBC, which quotes JPM who [...]

The Best And Worst Performing Assets In September, Q3 And 2014 YTD

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/01/2014 09:50

When it comes to asset returns, September, and the entire third quarter for that matter, belonged to Asia.

Technically, it belonged to Asian central banks, because while the rest of the world generated weak returns in the past month, the two best performing asset classes were [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 08/14/2014 09:29

While the mainstream media has become used to the daily buying of bonds by The Fed, mention that they are buying ‘stocks’ and suddenly one is labeled a conspiracy theory wonk – despite 1) the fact that they are, and 2) they have admitted that [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 06/02/2014 13:25

Low Volume Overnight Levitation Pushes US Equity Futures To New Record Highs

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 06/02/2014 07:03 -0400

It took a precisely 0.1 beat in the Chinese Manufacturing PMI over the weekend (50.8 vs Exp. 50.7) for the USDJPY and the Nikkei to forget all about last week’s abysmal Japanese economic data and to send the Nikkei soaring by 2.1% to [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 05/30/2014 07:03 -0400

Last night’s docket of atrocious Japanese economic data inexplicably managed to push the Nikkei lower, not because the data was ugly but because the scorching inflation – the highest since 1991 – mostly driven by import costs, food and energy as a result [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 05/21/2014 06:55 -0400

marketoracle.co.uk / By: Jonathan_Davis / May 17, 2014 – 08:24 PM GMT

In 1989 The Nikkei index touched just short of 40,000.

10Y Yield Hits 7-Month Lows As Gold Surges

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 05/05/2014 08:35 -0400

With Japan out and Europe quiet, markets are without their normal random Nikkei headline or ECB quote of the day to juice JPY (unable to break back above 102) and stocks (for now)… and of course, it’s not Tuesday. Treasury yields are lower for the 5th [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 05/01/2014 08:07 -0400

As we noted on the last day of March, April was supposed to be the best month for stocks, with an average return since 1950 of over 2%. It wasn’t.

Wither Japan!

news.goldseek.com / by David Chapman / 24 April 2014

It has been a long way down for the Tokyo Nikkei Dow (TNA). Almost twenty-four years after peaking at 38,915, the TNA remains down 63% from those lofty levels. It has been Japan’s long nightmare.

JPY Drops, Nikkei Pops As Japanese Trade Balance Nears Record Deficit (36th In A Row)

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 04/20/2014 20:17

Another month, another colossal miss for the “waiting-for-the-j-curve” Japanese trade balance. At 1.7tn, this month’s adjusted trade balance is the 2nd largest on record, and is the 36th month in a row. Exports missed dramatically (+1.8% vs 6.5% expected) so, so much for devaluation driving [...]

The Abenomics Surprises Just Keep Coming …

acting-man.com / Pater Tenebrarum / April 15, 2014

A Failing Scheme

Our idea that the Nikkei writes the news remains uncontested by any contrary developments. It still does. Since its peak at 16320 points on the final trading day of 2013, the Nikkei has lost 14.7% – and so it is no wonder that the [...]
