From what I understand there are many securities that have not been able to trade because of countless sell orders. Could be real ugly when / if all securities are available to trade.

200 : 1 Sell orders as I just heard.

In the live feed on BBC, it said the Bank of Japan just announced that it is injecting 7 trillion yen of emergency liquidity into the system... Source

Obviously there's a clear divide between financial interests and human compassion... Some analysts are warning that there could be a pretty wicked ripple effect across the global economy. Stay tough, Japan!

Whoops, forgot about converting


So, Japan was already in massive debt, and is magically injecting billions into the market... What are the long-term ramifications of this move? Is the Japanese economy pretty much done for?

I was just hearing talk about the same thing. The talking heads were saying this will probably not be a huge problem as you would automatically assume. I don't profess to being on top of Japan's economic realities. I was thinking the same thing.

The Euro Crisis has suddenly sparked up with Spain's Moody downgrade.

Saudi troops moving into Bahrain could send shudders in the oil markets.

On Friday, PIMCO, the largest US Mutual Fund pulled totally out of US Bonds. If the Fed has to pour money into the markets tommorow on an epic scale what then?

Silver is already coming on 36.50, and gold 1430.

How many shocks can the fiat based house of cards economy take?

How will Japan finance its reconstruction?

www.bbc.co.uk...

According to IMF figures, the ratio of general government gross debt to GDP was set to reach 228% this year, and 233% in 2012, even before taking any account of the costs of reconstructing the area devastated by the quake and tsunami. The gap between government revenues and expenditure for 2011 is forecast at more than 9%.

AND YET the Japanese Investment Bank, Nomura seems to think that Government bonds will Appreciate in value. Also, Nomura's chief economist Takahide Kiuchi said - in a conference call with investors this morning - that he expects the quake and disaster will contribute to a contraction in the Japanese economy of between 1% and 1.5% in the three months to the end of June.

Even afetr a MASSIVE Natural diaster occurs, the Banking Lot are trying to protect themselves......!

3 trillion yen, THAT'S NOTHING.

They need to inject at least 10 times that.
