Japanese Equities A Practical Guide to Investing in the Nikkei Synopsis

An indispensable resource for anyone wishing to understand and successfully invest in the Nikkei. Recent years have seen steady growth in investor interest in the Japanese equity market, the second largest in the world. Japanese Equities describes how the Nikkei works, explains its driving factors and presents a collection of insightful case studies to help you successfully invest in the market. Author Michiro Naito, a former equity derivatives/quantitative strategist for J.P. Morgan Securities Japan, helps you understand the ups and downs of the market and capitalise on its money-making opportunities.

This valuable book helps you grasp the idiosyncrasies of the market and correctly time investing decisions to maximise profits.
