Japanese Nikkei Downtrend


By G. R. Harrison (2014)

nikkei-1Today, we’ll take a quick look at the Japanese Stock Market as represented by the Nikkei 225 Index.

Unlike the other World Markets, the Nikkei shows a market that made an incredible surge upwards but which has now peaked and is falling in a downtrend.

This is a major economy and a major market break which has not been recognized as such yet.

At the very best, the momentum has broken to sideways and run out of steam completely.

But, this is a market which, (like a Judo Sensei) has had considerable practice in how to take ‘Fall’.

Remember, the Nikkei 225 once peaked at 38,957 in December 29th of 1989, so, this is a market that has fallen from a great height.

And, it may not have reached Bottom yet.

This could turn into a runaway Bear market seeking out it’s ‘comfort’ zone back in the 8K-10K price area before exploring even lower levels, in which case we’ve just seen the first ‘bounce’ up from the 8K price area. We may be on the second arc downwards at present. If we break the 14K price level and go down again, we’ll have an even stronger case in favor of the downtrend. – George

This is the method that I developed in order to find the true ‘intentions’ of the institutional traders in every market.

This approach is unique and, is not a conventional trend tool. The theory behind this exceptional analytical tool was derived from my many decades of research into W.D. Gann’s methods and writings as well as those of the ‘mercantile principles’ from the business side of the markets.

As the years rolled by, rediscoveries of lost principles of the markets were accumulated into what is now called the ‘Harrison-Gann Trade Secrets Master Course’.

‘The Excalibur Method’ is now part of the Master Course but, still may be purchased separately for a little while longer. You can read testimonials here.

The first half of the manual introduces a new paradigm and perspective for identifying what I call the ‘intentions’ or ‘objectives’ of the big market interests who clearly control the market trends. The Excalibur Method’s purpose is to allow one to place themselves in alignment with the plans of those who make the markets by using a mathematical tool to extract and interpret those plans.
