Rising sea levels raise all ships, but not everyone can afford a ship.

I wanted to get a purchase in before the end of the year so I could try again next year.

Yikes, you should have maxed it out with the full 1.2 mil. I could be wrong, but the maximum contributions are based on calendar year.

With the Nikkei 225 at 24,000, only another 15,000 points to go, before Japanese stocks can start setting all time highs every day, like US stocks!

What happened to the predicted economy crash due to South Korea's actions by some commentators here? Anyway, good to know bussiness is doing fine.

I am in anticipation to see how Nissan shares perform im 2020.

The Nikkei 225 index fund in my Nisa is up 65%. Not a bad return, I'd say.

Nice! I tried NISA for the first time this year. Just this month. I wanted to get a purchase in before the end of the year so I could try again next year. I made a very small return, but a 3% gain in a few days is not bad.

Next year, I'll drop the entire 1.2 million on some low-priced stock around 100 yen or so and do a bit of gambling.

Technically, the year in trading ended last week, but yah, it ended up.

The product of a financial 'soup' called shareholder value!

Based on a mixture of hard numbers such as sales, assets, profits and overheads; and soft concepts such PR, advertising and media manipulation.

The working poor must be thrilled.

Japan's household savings rate, at nearly 30%, is pretty healthy, and on an upward trend over the past decade. If households used at least some of those savings like I did, yeah, they would indeed be thrilled.

Against expectations...what’s in store in 2020?

"The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average ended down 181.10 points, or 0.76 percent, from Friday at 23,656.62."

Did you say 23,656.62 YEN? No, I guess you did not; however, the Japanese media did. I have always wondered why the units for the Nikkei differ between English and Nihongo reporting...

Wonder if this anything to do with the record high U.S. stock market.

It could be a bubble before a major crash. You’d better settle your long positions.

Man,

The working poor must be thrilled.
