    The Nikkei is up over 4% in the last two days. Weakening yen and optimisim over an upcoming election, which ought to see the LDP return to power.

    Doesn't look like any of that optimism is spilling over into western markets. Probably padding the I-fund from a little damage though.

    I noticed that too. Japan is 20% of the index I believe. Europe isn't helping. At least a little green yesterday for us. On the chart we do have one small gap below at about the 50 dma which may have to get filled before a good bounce.

    You got me thinking about the I fund composite (Japan - 21.6%) and I remembered (and verified) that it also has 2% in China. With the threats of "cracking down" on China, will this go forward in the fund or will it have to diversify somewhere else? Inquiring minds!
    THIS IS WHERE I WOULD PUT SOMETHING TO REPRESENT MY THINKING, BUT THEN THEY SHOW UP!

    Default Nikkei

    Sorry, not sure what the actual return on the Nikkei was today - I see 3.66% in one place, then 1.43% in another. Whatever, they're both good gains. This index must be getting oversold. Not a leader really, but could spell trouble for the I fund's potential snap back rally.

    Looks like there was a big gap on Friday too.

    The Nikkei has been going strong for quite some time now. The yen has been on the decline, and Japan has been anticipating the fall of the DPJ (think Democrats) and the return of the more fiscally conscious LDP (think Republicans). Tonight is the election, and the LDP is winning in a landslide. There will be a new Prime Minister (Shinzo Abe - previously PM). I wonder if there will be a sell the news effect this week. Could be something to look out for if you're in the I fund, especially since that fund has been the top fund for 3 months running. We shall see.

    With Japan stuckin a two-decade slump and receding behind China as the region's most important economic player, people appeared ready to turn back to the LDP, which led Japan for so many decades. To revive Japan's stagnant economy, Abe will likely push for increased public works spending and lobby for stronger moves by the central bank to break Japan out of its deflationary trap.

    Heads up-

    Japan's Nikkei taking it in the shorts this morning.

    Now down over -2.25%.

    Looks like a down day ahead all over the world as futures are all turning negative.

    that I fund sucks with that fv. i thought the I fund was looking good at the close, but when i looked this morn it was very disaapointing. it showed a increase of .50% but only gave .11%. but i will stick with it hoping for it to make up some losses.
