Nikkei is up cautiously in the new week, following accelerated declines from record highs. Stay informed on the 13 February NIKKEI Technical Forecast.
13 February, GKFX – The Nikkei 225 Index is looking to make up lost ground, trading up into 21,600.00 in Tokyo markets following three weeks of accelerating declines from a recent high of 24,200.00 less than a month ago.
Inflation fears were stoked recently as markets made the connection between improving economic indicators and rising interest rates, and equities suffered severe shakedowns as traders pulled record amounts of cash out of indexes and risk assets, piling into safe havens as central banks around the world prepare to start ending the decade-long easy monetary environment that has been the hallmark of low growth rates globally.
The Nikkei is bouncing back from its recent lows as markets restabilize in the face of rising interest rates, and is tracking a similar recovery to other equity indexes, notably the S&P 500 from the US.
