    Check out the Nikkei:


    Big bounce off the 20 day SMA. The 50 still hasn't crossed the 200. There still could be a lot of life in this bull market. Considering 1/4 of the I fund is supposedly comprised of the Nikkei, I'd say maybe I is the way forward.

    This really is unusual. Normally there are not bounces like this.

    The I fund has been my choice for sometime and I'll continue to hold.

    Question: The I fund only went up .12%, but EFA was up 1.2% yesterday. Any reason there would be such a big difference?

    Just trying to keep learning. Thanks.

    The manager likes to diddle with the price depending on the dollar and their mood - it'll all come back perhaps today boosting the I fund back to fair value. It's one of those idiosyncrasies designed to prevent trading abuse due to different closings - generally just a minor aggravation.

    Maybe blow off top is the better description. Despite closing up 1.65%, it gave up 0.8% in the last half-hour (after I posted).

    Does it have anything to do with BOJ messing with the Yen?

    Undoubtedly. Here's an article I read today about just that topic.

    FYI - This week is "Golden Week" in Japan. Tokyo Stock Exchange closed today, and I think also Thurs-Fri. Don't know what that could mean for the I fund, except that it will be functioning w/o the Nikkei for much of the week.
