Chart: The World is Turning Japanese

12 Feb


Nearly a year ago, Bank of Japan governor Haruhiko Kuroda described the unlikely inspiration behind Japan’s unprecedented monetary stimulus: Peter Pan.

Why am I not surprised?

I’m highly amused, of course–but not surprised.  The world’s economists have begun to emulate Pan’s “Lost Boys”.

    The Yen is rising off the lows and is leading silver and gold. The Yen carry trade is ending as measured against the falling S & P 500 and similar indexes. Is this indicative of the negative interest rates commencing in Yen as global capital chases rising yields in the global currency war? Are rates in deeper negative in competeing currencies such as the Dollar in early decline phase? Are all clobal currency units yeilding negative?

    The Yen is the stock market! The Yen produces/produced.. liquidity in the market. Embracing this concept has worked out profitably since 2009.
    As the Yen advances now and going foward it will force those with leveraged long positions in the market to sell–powerful leverage in reverse.
    Gold follows the same direction as Yen. Both appear to be in vertical trajectories, fact.
    One can count that there is tremedous leverge in the gold market with the unwinding of the Yen carry-trade invention.
