    Strange. Most markets in bounce mode, but Nikkei and Austria tanking again.

    Japan is closed today, holiday.
    Austria looks to be closed as well, but the Bloomberg calendar doesn't show it to be a holiday.
  3. Nikkei is closed!

    Ummm. Good point. So is Austria.

    The great decoupling has begun.

    Economies that are based on 'fluff', like the UK, will continue to see declining stock markets and declining currencies.

    Economies that actually produce goods of useful value will see nice increases. Like Germany.

    Isn't that how the world is supposed to work, rewarding people who work, punishing people who don't?
  6. Austria? Or Australia?
  7. Austria isn't closed. ATX index shows up 10% from Friday close on my screen.
