Emini Trading Update – Tuesday 15 Mar 2011 (15:08)
As some readers might know, Mrs Emini-Watch and I love snowboarding in Japan. And every time we go, she gets sick of me saying “You see, that’s why I love Japan – they just do xyz right”.
And I do, I just love Japan. I have so much respect for their attention to detail, the pride in their work, their consideration and politeness.
And every day I’m there I’m pleasantly surprised by some feat of technology – whether it be a vending machine for hot and cold drinks out in the open in -15 degree weather, that actually works! Or some organizational stroke of genius – I’ve never stood in a long queue at the airport and younger people let the elderly board first.
Nobody could have been better prepared than the Japanese for a 9.0 earthquake followed by tsunami. And I think they will surprise us how quickly they get things back to rights. And their calm and getting on with the job-at-hand, even in the face of utter destruction, is a lesson to us all.
The sun has not set on Japan. God willing.
Anyway, an amazing 24 hours. You’ll probably hear in my voice in the video I’m really not sure where we stand right now. And that’s OK – you don’t need to see the future to day trade. So I’ll just play it day-by-day and not be surprised what happens next.
