The Nikkei Is Set To Surge When It Opens
Jun. 13, 2013, 4:16 PM
Thursday, the Japanese Nikkei 225 stock index crashed 6.4% (down a whopping 844 points to 12,445).
Nikkei futures have been rallying all day long, though – as U.S. stocks have advanced – and are currently trading at 13,080, up 635 points already from Thursday's close.
That implies a 5.1% surge when the Nikkei re-opens Friday in Japan.

Fed Likely to Push Back on Market Expectations of Rate Increase
By Jon Hilsenrath
Federal Reserve officials have been trying to convince investors for weeks not to overreact when the central bank starts pulling back on its $85 billion-per-month bond-buying program. An adjustment in the program won’t mean that it will end all at once, officials say, and even more importantly it won’t mean that the Fed is anywhere near raising short-term interest rates.
Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke
Investors aren’t listening.
A wide range of indicators suggest that investors are starting to think the Fed might start raising short-term interest rates — now near zero — sooner than previously thought. Until recently many market indicators suggested investors expected the first rate increases in mid-2015, but now these indicators indicate investors think it could be sooner.
Prices have been dropping in Eurodollar and fed-funds futures markets, for example, where investors make bets on future short-term interest rates. Those declines suggest investors expect higher short-term rates by late 2014. In the fed-funds futures market, for example, the expected fed funds rate in December 2014 is 0.35%. In the Eurodollar market, investors see 3-month rates borrowing rates rising to 0.67% by December 2014.
A similar message is coming from swaps markets, where the market is pricing in an average 0.37% fed funds rate between June 2014 and May 2015, according to BNP Paribas. That is up from an expected rate of 0.17% in early May.
The fed funds rate — which is an interbank borrowing rate — was 0.08% yesterday.
These movements aren’t huge and could quickly reverse, but they merit attention... (more)
again i will wait for volatility to collapse on friday afternoon before biting on these otm puts because it doesn't pass the common sense test the vix will climb 10% four straight days. lets see what happens.
happy summer everybody
i have a turtle john does your family have a pet?
with a test of all-time highs.
look for a nikkei breakout above her 50dma on monday.
well it is a bit late, but not too late. you may still find a suitable price for buying with @ market order on the open monday morning. i had hoped that everybody bought the s&p 500 today. but if not you should watch the upward gap in the opening on monday, wait a bit, feel the bullish tendency of the market making sure that prices keep going up and up then go long. again quite frankly the back wagon caboose of the bullish train is just as lovely as the rocket engine front row because you get a better view of all those left standing behind @ the station.
but if you bought already , continue to hold , you are on safe ground as long as the future prices continue to trade higher day after day.
hope this helps
the goldman sachs disagrees with you eliniko69. solets see what happens.
“We are raising our S&P 500 dividend estimates and index return forecasts for 2013 through 2015. We expect S&P 500 index will rise by 5% from the current level to 1,750 by year-end 2013, advance by 9% to 1,900 in 2014, and climb by 10% to 2100 in 2015.”
their will be no market "crash and burn" because airships have switched from highly combustible hydrogen to non-flammable helium gas to make new highs.
looks like we gap-up smartly monday mornin says after hours trading.
This is paradise, I'm tellin' ya. This town like a great big #$%$ jus' waitin' to get phucked.
yahoo data mining is incorrect on the date of birth for all my handles. hope this helps. and the cartoon crystallized my thoughts with a catch phrase for chat board posting headers.
did you watch it?
where you ever bitten by a shark?
Quint: Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, chief. It was comin' back, from the island of Tinian to Laytee, just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. Thirteen footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, chief? You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know... was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. Huh huh. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, chief. The sharks come cruisin'. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know it's... kinda like ol' squares in battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the shark comes to the nearest man and that man, he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark would go away. Sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.
Y'know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men! I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand! I don't know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday mornin' chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player, boson's mate. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a kinda top. Up ended. Well... he'd been bitten in half below the waist...
i have been posting buy the ƒucking dip since i saw the cartoon on youtube 2 years ago you should check it out wally.
ya i checked the options handicap and that type of time frame move is unrealistic but my point is for each advance the market is given only one 5% correction until new nosebleed highs are firmly established.
anywho i bought the ƒucking dip so i am "all in" lets see what happens this time.
options market is pricing a $15 move on or before december 21st with a $180 bull scenario print so $192 here will likely be an early 2014 story.
make no mistake this 5% dip was just a correction evidence the powerful reversal toward new highs on ravenous buying momo.
