Bingo on the Nikkei


March 14 | Sun Mar 13, 2011 8:11pm EDT

March 14 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average extended losses and fell 3.9 percent to 9,851.06 in early trade on Monday as the market gauges the effects of last week's earthquake and tsunami. (Reporting by Antoni Slodkowski)

But the ASX is not down that much...

Insurance claims following Japan's offshore earthquake could hit US$35billion, according to initial estimates.

That's more than the entire global catastrophe loss for the insurance industry in 2010.

What's more - risk modelling company AIR, who came up with the figures, said that amount doesn't includethe effects of the tsunami that followed the quake, or any potential losses from nuclear damage.




dont think japanese markets will drop that much boj is giving out 24 billion dollars monday and tuesday

Goldman shud add the fact that these "marginally positive" steps in EMU-ponzi scheme are "marginally positive" for the BANKSTERS and negative for everyone else. The marginal rate of rape of the tax payers never gets into these little pieces of crap they write.

imo Monday is a wildcard, but as the week progresses, markets all over, including Ben's Bubble will continue retracing. This will likely go on for another couple of weeks untill the interventionists decide it is enough another ride kicks in again.

Meanwhile, let's pray for the Blessings of God to help the Japanese People. A miracle is needed there to contain those nuclear facilities. May God help them.

"our thoughts are with those affected" as in how to fleece the survivors. "We are doing God's work." I assume he meant Kali, though I think she is a goddess. Why wasn't the ANON BoA dump on monday mentioned?

They'll monetize billions. The dollar will go up but the question remains for the us assets in japan and the funds and companies linked to them. There will be a lot of manupilation tomorrow so all we can do is sit back and watch the gangster do their thing...

I really do think monday will be hell for banks as bac will drop through the ground. Also the fact that kadafi is regaining ground is setting fears he'll retaliate against the west for supporting the rebels. Another thing will be the flight of japanese money into europe and the us so both cuurencies will go up as will gold and silver.

I would imagine that the repatriation of Japanese off-shore accounts will strengthen the yen against the Euro, as their overt manipulation of the Euro through bond buys will have to be severely curtailed.  It wouldn't surprise me to see EURJPY fall through the floor.

It is going to be up to Benny and the Boyz to help stabilise the Japanese export economy, so expect the yen to fall heavily against the US dollar.

There will be much machination going on...

They seem have to have missed the important step before rebuilding Japan: they have to tear it all down first.

Just insane.

Joint External Debt Hub (JEDH) has not been updated


Joint BIS-IMF-OECD-World Bank statistics on external debt

The BIS banking and securities market statistics are an important element in the Joint BIS-IMF-OECD-World Bank statistics on external debt. These include quarterly data from creditor and market sources available from the four participating international organisations. Although the joint statistics do not provide a fully comprehensive and consistent measure of total external debt in each country, they bring together timely and international comparative data in this area. They also provide a breakdown by instrument and, importantly, show measures of short-term debt not easily available from other sources.

The data are available from a joint website in the format of tables and an online database. The four international organisations have improved the debt statistics, which are provided, together with external debt data published by national sources, through an electronic joint external debt hub (JEDH).

Poor Japan -ever more debt in ever increasing numbers. 

The EU - Piigs debt addressed by adding debt to debt in the form of traunches. 

The US - $70 billion left to spend until new debt level needed.  

At what point does global debt just collapse in on itself? 

On a long enough time scale, extend & pretend crosses over into collapse and reality.

This will test everyones' chopsticks. Most of the intelligentia seems to think this is a 'good thing' for the Japandes GDP. Right, let's have a tsumani in Europe then here and after in China because then the Global GDP will rise. Such fools these ecomonists are including Ben.
