It's bouncing around the res at 270. I suggest once the yen finds direction after that rate rise, N225 and JFJ will follow. £ v Yen

TOKYO (XFN-ASIA) - Share prices closed mixed after the Bank of Japan hiked its key rate by 25 basis points, with investors waiting to see how offshore players and the currency markets would react to the latest central bank decision, dealers said.

The blue-chip Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed down 25.91 points or 0.14 pct at 17,913.21, after moving in a tight range of 17,850.09 and 17,968.26. The TOPIX index of all issues listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange's first section ended the session up 4.50 points or 0.25 pct at 1,787.23, off a low of 1,779.47 and a high of 1,790.21. Gainers beat decliners 948 to 615, with 152 issues flat. Volume rose to 3.06 bln shares from 2.22 bln yesterday. (1 usd = 120.34 yen)

(Close): Japanese shares closed flat on Tuesday, as investors wait for the Bank of Japan's interest rate decision. Analysts are mixed over whether the Bank will raise rates at its two day meeting, after recent data showed stronger-than-forecast economic growth. After Monday's seven-year high, the benchmark Nikkei 225 fell 0.97 points or 0.01% to end at 17,939.12. Auto firms were among the gainers after Volvo said it would buy Nissan Diesel Motor for $1.1bn. While Nissan Motor added 0.3% Isuzu Motors climbed 1.1% and Toyota Motor 0.4% higher.

(Close): Japanese share prices closed slightly lower ahead of next week's interest rate decision by the central bank. Shares of Sapporo Holdings were swamped with buy orders after hedge fund Steel Partners said it was considering a tender offer for the beer maker. The Tokyo Stock Exchange's Nikkei index of leading shares shed 21.58 points or 0.12% to 17,875.65. It comes a day after the market notched its best finish since 8 May, 2000.

AD...point taken, but with an appreciating Yen, depreciating $, could be interesting times ahead. Those Japanese GDP figs are very strong. Looks like Japan is finally moving into the top gear of growth.

have Thanks interesting posts. I dont see a huge unwinding of the carry trade because the disparity in interest rates between Japan versus USA/UK is so large it would take an increase of 2% or more to make any real impact on large short positions of Yen, however there will be some cautious players out there who will be less aggressive.

Ready for the era of cheap debt to end? the free cash machine is about to end... Japan's Economy Grows 4.8%, Fastest in Almost 3 Years (Update7) By Lily Nonomiya Feb. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Japan's economy grew at the fastest pace in almost three years as consumer spending rebounded and business investment jumped. The yen rose on speculation the central bank may raise interest rates. Gross domestic product in the world's second-largest economy expanded at an annual 4.8 percent pace in the three months ended Dec. 31, the Cabinet Office said in Tokyo today, exceeding the 3.8 percent median estimate of 38 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News. Third-quarter growth was revised to 0.3 percent from 0.8 percent. The chance the central bank will raise rates next week rose to 54 percent, from 40 percent late yesterday, according to calculations by Credit Suisse Group based on interest-payment trading. Bank of Japan Governor Toshihiko Fukui cited weak consumer spending and slow inflation as reasons his policy board kept borrowing costs at 0.25 percent at its last two meetings. ``The report increases the possibility the central bank will raise rates,'' said Satoshi Kon, who helps manage the equivalent of $19 billion in Tokyo at Pension Fund Association. ``Consumption was stronger than many of us anticipated.'' The yen rose to 120.04 per dollar at 3:38 p.m. in Tokyo from 120.72 before the report was published. Yields on the benchmark 10-year bond rose 1.5 basis points to 1.74 percent. The Nikkei 225 Stock Average climbed 0.8 percent as shares of Takashimaya Co., the nation's largest department store, jumped 10 percent.

(Close): Economic data helped Japanese share prices rise again on Thursday, to reach its highest level in almost seven years for a second consecutive day. Japan's economy grew at an annual rate of 4.8% in the quarter, the government said - buoyed by consumer spending. The Nikkei-225 index was up 0.81% to 17,897.23 by the end of trading - its highest finish since May 8 2000. The TOPIX index gained 0.65% to 1,776.71. Shares of consumer lender Orient fell nearly 20% after it warned of losses. Tighter lending laws would hit the bottom line, Orient said.

Chart looks good.Discount closed to 5%. Looking for more appreciation of Yen with todays better than expected GDP figures and possibility of higher interest rates, some unwinding of the carry trade and further new N225 highs. AO

Hi AD, this thread has the News link, the other has the N225 chart. Pity they're not on both. I've just used whatever was top of the list when I search. Weak res at 270 that I'm sure will be tested shortly, after that, we'll be cruising! This type of investment is long term, although easily tradeable with that tight spread. The N225 has a lot of lost ground to make up. I make next major res 24000. The only question is when? Now clear of the 17500 res, fairly quickly (by the end of the year?).

Good luck GP. I bought back into JFJ recently. With an undervalues N225, making new highs, the yen is overbought and a lot of positions to unwind in carry trades, I'm expecting to see this benefit from 2 rising markets. So far, so good anyway but the moves are both still in their infancy, so a lot to play for I think

Close): Japanese share prices gained 0.74% on Wednesday to end trading at close to a seven-year high. The Nikkei-225 index finished 106.29 points ahead at 17,727.74. The broader TOPIX index gained 0.56% to 1,765.73. Tyre maker Bridgestone was among the big winners, gaining 4.2% after saying it was set to smash its 2006 operating profit forecast for 2006 by 15%. Higher sales, more profitable products and the weaker yen had all played a part, Bridgestone said.

(Close): The Nikkei closed at its highest level since 2000 on Tuesday, led by gains to property stocks after they reported strong results last week. Building company Mitsui Fudosan was one of the highest risers. Banking stocks such as Mitsubishi Financial also rose ahead of expected upbeat Japanese economic growth data due out on Thursday. The Nikkei ended up 117 points to 17,621. Steel, shipping and brokerage firms also enjoyed rises.

Yes, that depreciation and a bit more is in the price now hence discount to NAV. It looks as if BoJ will increase rates in the not too distant future and that could turn the Yen around. Chart has broken upwards out of that rectangle so I'm expecting it to test initially the res at 264 sooner rather than later

Shame about the depreciation of the Yen against £ almost 15% over the last 12 months very much up to the Bank of Japan where it goes from here but would expect the Yen to firm up as we move to the 31st March which is year end for most Japanese companies and they usuallly repatriate funds and window dress. This fund way back in the past have hedged the currency on occasions but do not do so anymore which I think is the correct way to manage now.

(Close): The main Japanese share index ended up on Friday, boosted by the weaker yen against the dollar and optimism about US economic growth. Gains were led by technology stocks and key exporters such as Samsung. Property firms also enjoyed rises, on renewed optimism of growth in the Japanese housing sector. The Nikkei 225 ended up 28 points to 17,547, its best close in 10 months, after earlier rising to its highest inter-day level since July 2000.
