    Alright hear is the question:

    Profit off the disaster in Japan (this is what we do ?right?)

    #1. Let’s evaluate the spike and then drop on Friday.
    #2. See how it reacts or stabilizes this week.
    #3. How would you invest in the same scenario with the probability of an after-shock that causes more damage and crisis in Japan.

    Lets go back and see what happened to New Zealand and it’s currency flow after it’s earthquake.

    Anyone have any thought’s?

    bacause dollar go down. Japanese will need money to restore the things over there, and they may dump some tresures or at least will not buy that much

    Unless Japan's export is badly affected by industrial plants which have been destroyed or shutdown by the earth quake and tsunami, the Yen will not fluctuate much.
    However, commodities like steel, cement, timber, etc (for massive reconstruction), and oil (for fuel & electricity plants) will be affected.

    Kubota (KUB) as an investment.

    I don’t really do the stocks but I think I would do Kubota (KUB) as a two year investment.
    The machinery that was used in Japan made by them will need to be replaced and new machinery for the clean-up will be made by them.
