  1. Hang seng is down almost 20% from its high; Nikkei down almost 25% .... but I havn't heard many/any people saying the Japanese market is heading into a bear market.......
  2. Their economy still has room to grow. I'd say they are where the USA was in 1991.
  3. Japs were supposed to raise rates. Haven't heard that chatter in awhile.

    Haven't seen her under 14k in a long time.

    A good old Asian Contagion would help the bear cause out and wouldn't hurt.
  4. recession is rearing its ugly head in Japan, check the indicators
  5. My wife is living in Japan at the moment (Looking after her sick mother). She says the peoples morale has never been worse. At present there are more suicides than ever.

    IMHO the place is fucked

  6. Can you expand on this as to why? thx
  7. Also, I haven't seen any news reports about Asia complaining of high oil prices, ever. I believe Japan gets there oil from Alaska.
