Japense stocks down 20% in 2 weeks

Warning for equity market participants: reckless speculation gives and takes in lightening speed: easy come, fast go.

“Markets across Asia suffered another bruising day as investors scrambled for the exits, with Japanese stocks falling over 6% and into a bear market, and heavy losses in China and across Southeast Asia.

The selloff has gripped global markets all week, fueled by uncertainty over the direction of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy and signs of cooling growth in emerging economies. The mounting worries are sending cash to traditional safe haven assets of Treasuries, the yen and Japanese government bonds while finance ministers and central banks across the region are taking steps to calm markets.”  See:  Nikkei enters bear market
