Aussie market started positive and then ran out of puff before BOJ’s negative interest rates announcement pushed it into the positive territory. The Japanese markets moved from negative 0.5% to positive 3% and then fell back down to negative 1.5% before moving up positive 2%. If you bought and sold each low and high today, Japanese markets delivered over 11% today. The main game being played by the Central Banks since GFC is “Currency War”. As we wrote at the end of December, Jan was setting up as a profit taking month while Feb was likely to be the time for the market recovery …we moved to a trading buy market call at the end of last week as the stimulus hope starts to support market uncertainties.
