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 [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 03/20/2014 07:16 -0400

In the aftermath of yesterday’s key market event, the FOMC’s $10 billion tapering and elimination of QE with “QualG“, not to mention the “dots” and the “6 month” comment, the USD has been on fire against all key pairs, with the EURUSD sliding below 1.38, [...]

Futures Dragged Down By Stronger Yen

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/19/2014 07:03 -0500

After surging yesterday for no reason whatsoever because as we explained on several occasions, there were no surprises in the Tuesday BOJ statement, and the doubling and extension of its loan facilities was implicit and factored into the doubling of its monetary policy (as goldman [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/17/2014 23:33 -0500

Clearly boxed in by the concern that any increase in their QE program will shift sentiment from stimulus to monetization, the BoJ kept the money-printing the same but redirected focus by raising the ceiling on their bank lending facility (from JPY3.5 trillion to JPY 7 trillion). [...]

Risk Off

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/06/2014 07:03 -0500

Today the lingering problems of the “emerging” world and concerns about the Fed’s tapering take a back seat to what the European Central Bank may do, which ranges from nothing, to a rate cut (which sends deposit rates negative), to outright, unsterilized QE – we [...]

Japocalypse Wow – Foreigners Dump Most Japanese Stocks Since 2010

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/05/2014 21:15 -0500

It would seem, in the case of momo-chasing levered fast-money flows, that Propertius was correct – “fickleness has always befriended the beautiful…” and Japanese stocks are no longer the once beautiful trend that Abe had promised them to be. A tapering of the US flow; a [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/05/2014 08:09 -0500

The Japanese Noose Is Tightening

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/03/2014 08:28 -0500

Mixed data from Japan did nothing to excite and while markets oscillated for a few hours after the US close (and subsequent pile-driver from AMZN), they are now unwinding most of the dead-cat-bounce seen during the US day-session. Japanese stocks are back at fresh 2-month lows [...]
