ASIAN MARKETS


JAPAN – ah the fresh smell of Taro Aso’s burning Yen again on the tape this morning as the Yen hits new lows; Nikkei rips +2.9% on that to fresh new highs (up +26.2% since mid-Nov!) and they haven’t even hit the CTRL+P button hard yet; with -0.2% y/y DEFLATION in their DEC CPI, they are going to have to print like the world has never seen to hit “2% inflation”.

 

KOSPI – this is the Currency War, and the South Korean currency (and stock market) does not like this; KOSPI confirms our breakdown signal from 3days ago, dropping another -0.9% overnight (down -4.4% from its JAN high); interconnectedness in global macro markets matters; stay tuned on this, Chinese stocks broke 2313 TRADE support this wk too.
