Nikkei new highs led by Sony
"""Nikkei mini crash
It does not matter what the news really is - panic is panic. i have neen talking about taking profits in tech and the japan index for a few weeks.
If you didn't, the last few days in japan have seen months of gains taken away and the Nasdaq will be the same in the morning.
I like japan down here again and will nibble on EWJ in the morning.
This could be the last big selloff in the Nikkei for a while. A close below 13,000 would change my mind."""
Flash forward to January 27th - the Nikkei is up 500 today with Sony - another of my faves - up 15 percent. The Nikkei is up to 16,500 - a cool 1300 points in 10 days if you bought into the panic. If you did, good for you. I only nibbled. Rat farts!
