Title: NIKKEI 225 Futures falling

Maybe it may change when I wake up tomorrow, but from the way it looks now, it's not looking good at all. It has a change of around -950.


High: 15956

Low: 14686

We may be seeing the beginning of a major event.  As in devaluation of the yen, possible economic crash of Japan's economy.  You just can't lose 8% or your market's value too many times before the world takes notice.

Japan Stock Market Crash Leads To Global Sell Off

We had no idea how right we would be because the second Japan opened, its bond futures market was halted on a circuit breaker as the 10 Year bond plunged to their lowest level since early 2012, hitting 1% and leading to massive Mark to Market losses for Japanese banks, as we also warned would happen. That was just the beginning, and suddenly the realization crept in that the plunging yen at this point is not only negative for banks, but for the entire stock market, leading to what until that point was a solid up session for the Nikkei to the first rumblings of a ris-off.

Shortly thereafter we got the distraction of the Chinese Mfg PMI which dropped into contraction territory for the first time since late 2012, and which set the mood decidedly risk-offish, although the real catalyst may have been a report on copper from Goldman's Roger Yan (which we will cover in depth shortly) and whose implications may be stunning and devastating and may have just popped the Chinese credit bubble (oh, btw, short copper).

And then all hell broke loose, with the Nikkei first rising solidly and then something snapping loud and clear, and sending the index crashing a massive 1,143 an intraday swing of 9% high to low, leading to an over 200 pips move lower in the USDJPY, and leading to a global risk off across the world. Looks like Mrs Watanabe's infatuation with the "get rich scheme" known as the stock market is once again over, and it is time to start from scratch for Kuroda and Goldman proxy company.

Markets Are Lower After Another Insane Day In Japan

On Thursday, Japan crashed 7%.

On Friday the market gained, but it was very strange.

Check out the intraday chart of the Nikkei


The index surged by 3% in early going.

Then at one point it was down nearly 500 points on the day. Then in the end it scraped out a mediocre gain.

This is going to shake the world seeing this.

Meanwhile, Australia lost another 1.6%.

Europe is mixed, and US futures are currently lower.

As the world likes to say, "Follow the money trail". So who just made a ton of cash on these swings? When people lose in the financial markets, somebody is getting rich.
