R.N. Elliott and Nikolai Kondratieff agree: It’s springtime in Japan
From the perspective of Ralph Nelson Elliott’s Wave Principle, the long-term outlook for Japanese financial assets is very clear:
(1) Japanese stocks declined in three waves from 1989 to 2012 and have since begun a five-wave advance; (2) The yen advanced against the U.S. dollar in five waves from 1963 to 2011 and has since begun to correct that impulsive advance; and (3) JGB yields declined in five waves from 1961 to 2015 (so far one year short of a Fibonacci 55 years), signaling the imminent end of the deflationary cycle. The long-term wave patterns in Japanese securities are consistent with the start of a Kondratieff Spring, which should lead to dramatic changes in Japanese economic and social life. We will also consider events in Japan through the lens of socionomics, Robert Prechter’s theory of financial and social causality.
