I don't see an ishare for the japanese bond market.
NONE of what I type, should be taken as financial advice.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest that you've sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, alone
Dragged down by the stone.

Could be more Brian. I do count 5 waves down though. If we bounce, I will add to shorts in the 1120-1130 area.

Good strategy, I think. If this is Wave 3, no more closes above the 50-day MA for awhile (1130 and falling). ;)

There are Japanese Gov Bond futures contracts (JGBs) which Machinehead once said he traded. But I don't know about trading hours or liquidity.

Tanks HB, but I don't trade futures. I would never open a margin account. That is just me.

NazDuck slipping uner the waves and Japan-hee!-new low minus 325 at the mo! I agree with Doc on this one-Waterfall dead ahead! Once again standard warning if you are NOT an experienced trader DO NOT trade this market-live, learn, watch and be HAPPY! Many of us tried to warn a good member of this board but he went LONG and is suffering MIGHTILY for it! ;)

Worldwide terror alert:

WORLDWIDE CAUTION
April 29, 2004

This Public Announcement is being updated to remind U.S. citizens of the continuing threat of terrorist actions and anti-American violence against U.S. citizens and interests overseas. This supersedes the Worldwide Caution dated March 23, 2004 and expires on October 23, 2004.

The Department of State is deeply concerned about the heightened threat of terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens and interests abroad. The Department is also concerned about the potential for demonstrations and violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests overseas. U.S. citizens are reminded to maintain a high level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.

The Department of State remains concerned by indications that al-Qaida continues to prepare to strike U.S. interests abroad. Al-Qaida and its associated organizations have most recently struck in the Middle East and in Europe but other geographic locations could also be venues for attacks. Future al-Qaida attacks could possibly involve non-conventional weapons such as chemical or biological agents as well as conventional weapons of terror. We also cannot rule out that al-Qaida will attempt a catastrophic attack within the U.S.

Terrorist actions may include, but are not limited to, suicide operations, hijackings, bombings or kidnappings. These may involve aviation and other transportation and maritime interests, and may also include conventional weapons, such as explosive devices. Terrorists do not distinguish between official and civilian targets. These may include facilities where U.S. citizens and other foreigners congregate or visit, including residential areas, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, hotels and public areas. U.S. citizens are encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.

It seems that Bilderberg 2004 may be held at the 'Jekyll Island Club', Georgia from 7 to10 June 2004

If I am correct, this is the 50th anniversary. According to Pepe Escobar's Asia Times article, in 2003, the topic of discussion was how to "avert" (read: bring about) a financial collapse of the western sphere. This is why Jekyll Island is an appealing venue, as it is where the Federal Reserve Debt/Credit system was birthed. If this is the 50th year of the Bildies, it is a Jubilee year, meaning a liquidation is in the works, possibly. The trick is to bring about a financial collapse of debt/credit and play this off as a failure of capitalism. This will make communism/socialism/fascist collectivism more appealing which is, of course what all the current chaos in the Middle East is really all about

Sell Japan to prop the US...we'll know tomorrow...If we continue down then break out the ugly sticks...

Darth Vader could be the President as long as the Economy looks good...

The DOW and Nasdaq are a powerful psychological tool...any return to the waterfall scene like 2001-2002 would be a heavy blow and no way to slash rates from 6.5% to 1% to reflate the daydream...
"We are completely dependant on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money (at the request of the consumer) we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.... It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." --Robert H. Hemphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank,1938...

Sad, sad Jim Cramer, owner of large positions in NT, JDSU, and EMC (among other weiners). In a recent "Action Alert" email, he spent about 8 paragraphs justifying his positions in those stocks, and even lamenting that "his rules" wouldn't allow him to buy more. The pathetic words of a desperate guy. I'm not sure anymore if I should hate the man, or pity him. Both I guess. Poor mofo.

News you have not read yet!-Big news news here in the land of the loonie-The Idiot Prince instituted a duty on Canadian Lumber a long while ago at the behest of American producers who screamed and yelled we were dumping Lumber into your market. It caused havoc in B.C. over 50,000 people lost their jobs many Lumber Companies went Bankrupt. Now we have a free trade agreement with the U.S. signed by Ronald Reagan that has an appeals process-Canada appealed (there are 3) Canada won round one, Canada won Round two-today was round 3 and Canada not only won again the panel said "American producers were never at risk of harm but manipulated the Administration that they were"- the U.S. has 21 days to appeal the decision-(good luck) and/or when the decision is upheld they will have to refund Canada approximately $2.4 Billion U.S. in duties collected plus interest. The good news is the cost of an American new home should drop about 3 Grand the bad news is Shrub gets two black -eyes! ;)

I like to think he didn't :P... But you could be right.
