Japan was closed for a holiday on Thursday (i.e. yesterday) and is closed for holidays from Saturday (tomorrow) to Wednesday (next week), so from May 1 to 5, inclusive.
Today, Friday 30 April 2021, markets are open but there will be a holiday mood in the air.
Just a heads up.
Also, China is out on holidays also from May 1 to 5.
If it is quiet there is always the opportunity to talk shit about what Fed Chair Powell may or may not say at Jackson Hole in
Jackson Hole is in August and the chatterers are already hot on the rumour that Powell will signal a taper in Q4. Settle in for four months of this ahead! LOL.
