Greed & Fear – Thats all the Nikkei movements are this year !!

The last 5 months we have seen a BOOM in Japanese Equity and such sexy returns . Everyone forgot that things go up that fast they can go down the same way !

Yesterday erased $314 billion from the country’s
share value, amid optimism growth in company earnings and the
economy are intact

Yesterday the fear factor kicking in and it was ugly times ugly .

My view of investing is very very simple ,the market moves on :

Greed , Fear and black swans

I can see the Nikkei going much higher , 20/25 ,000 as a decent figure .

Stick to the fundamentals , yesterday was the perfect buying opportunity and yes I did , I filled my boots up and know I am out , profit is only profit when it’s in your pocket .

Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful

Happy Friday

Japan's Nikkei in best shape since 2008.

Japan’s Nikkei in best shape since 2008

The Japanese stock market hit its highest level in almost five years on Friday, after the Bank of Japan ambitious stimulus plan raised hope of economic revival, after years of slow growth.

The main Nikkei 225 stock index climbed as much as 4.7% to 13,225.62 earlier today – its highest since August 2008. By the end of the trading day, the Nikkei closed up 1.58%.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Japan said on Thursday that it plans to double the country’s money supply in an attempt to spur growth and stop prices from falling. The news took investors by surprise as it was a much bigger step than expected and therefore signalled a more aggressive approach towards accelerating economic growth.

Analysts praised BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda’s bold moves for his understanding of how global markets and investors would react when it comes to monetary policy.

The so-called Abenomics, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s economic policies, have drawn attention of investors who were not previously interest in Japan, according to Economists.

By pumping more money into the system, Japan is hoping to promote price growth, ending a cycle of deflation, recession and sputtering economic recovery. Concurrently, it is also hopes to weaken its currency in order to boost exports.

Notably, in the past two days alone, the Japanese yen declined 4.5% against the US dollar and more than 5% against the Euro.

Markets are BOOMING -looking like it will continue !

Markets looks like the first quarter was the start of a new BOOM in equity market . We have confidence growing , improving data , but more important is the prescription & attitude is turning positive .

Looking on the markets I agree we had a great 1st quarter , but I allways believe profit is only profits when you bank it ! Decide how much you happy with as a return and then sell .
If you don’t your greed feeling will make you hold for the perfect moment ,( which never exists !)

Reminds of a quote from Wall Street 2 from Gordon Gekko :

Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered

Strong Q1 to kick-start rest of 2013 – Strategist.

Strong Q1 to kick-start rest of 2013 – Strategist

Chief Equity Strategist Sam Stovall believes that the fast start year and the biggest Q1 gain in 14 years does not mean the party is about to end – in fact, the momentum is likely to continue.

As the calendar pages have now turned to April, investors remind themselves that the long-term track record for this month is positive.

Stovall assured that, “A strong first quarter has served as a running start for the rest of the year”. He argued that since the first quarter delivered positive returns, the odds of the next three quarters also delivering gains not only goes up, but so does the average total return.

In fact, history shows that since 1945, whenever the S&P 500 recorded a positive performance in the first quarter, the average performance for the three remaining quarters improved by an average 1.2, 1.1 and 0.4 percentage points, respectively. In addition, the rest of the year saw its average return rise to 8.9%.

However, at the opening of the second quarter on Monday, stocks slipped after disappointing US manufacturing activity weighed on the market.

The blue-chip Dow Jones Industrial Average index fell 5.69 points, whilst the broader Standard & Poor’s 500-stock Index shed 7.02 points and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index also lost 28.35 points.

Investors were concerned about whether Wall Street could extend the rally in the first quarter of the year when both the Dow and S&P 500 rose 11.3% and 10%, respectively.

Consequently, after a long holiday weekend the US stock market opened slightly lower, while trading at the Asian stock market was mixed and major European stock market remained closed on Easter Monday.
