Quote of the Day:
“If you are not willing to study, if you are not sufficiently interested to investigate and analyze the stock market yourself, then I beg of you to become an outright long pull investor, to buy good stocks and hold on to them; for otherwise, your chances of success as a trader will be nil.”
-Humphrey B. Neill

Interesting chart. What I find most interesting is that while it took the BOJ five years to go from raising to the high of 6% to lowering to 1%, the FED went from raising to a low (?) of 1% in something like 20 months. Kind of a different response to a bubble pop, eh?
