Is always a big sell out before a crash, right now CNBC analyst are advising that is not a good thing to buy, and I imagine why, but we know better this happen before when the economic crash two years ago.

The domino effect of Japan disaster has not hit the worlds economy fully yet.

Right now is nothing but speculators making money from the disaster.

Japan is one of the top biggest economy in the world and if people think that the nuclear disaster and natural disaster is not going to impact the US economy then they are fools.

Japan is also the second biggest holders of US debt after China.
