Watch Japan – For All Is Not Well In The Land Of The Rising Sun

Tokyo - Public Domain

One of the epicenters of the global financial crisis that started during the second half of last year is Japan, and it looks like the markets in the land of the rising sun are entering yet another period of great turmoil.  The Nikkei was down another 390 points last night, and it is now down more than 1,300 points since a week ago.  Why this is so important for U.S. investors is because the Nikkei is often an early warning indicator of where the rest of the global markets are heading.  For example, the Nikkei started crashing early last December about a month before U.S. markets started crashing really hard in early January.  So the fact that the Nikkei has been falling very rapidly in recent days should be a huge red flag for investors in this country.

I want you to study the chart below very carefully.  It shows the performance of the Nikkei over the past 12 months.  As you can see, it kind of resembles a giant leaning “W”.  You can see the stock crash that started last August, you can see the second wave of the crash that began last December, and now a third leg of the crash is currently forming…

Imagine the insanity of “negative” interest rates in a capitalist society.

“Slip, sliding away.”

Nothing happens by accident. Our enemies are globalists; they contemplate the entire world as a unified playing field, a singular chessboard; and they are not afraid to create long chains of events to create pivot points which facilitate their objectives -- and the objective is rarely evident in their early actions…but as their plans come nearer to fruition, the consequences of their efforts must come into clearer focus, and their true purpose must ultimately reveal itself for the destructive force which it fundamentally is.
