In the days before the tsunami hit Japan, their stock market the Nikkei 225 Stock Average had its highs and lows throughout the month. However, when the tsunami hit the market took one of the biggest losses to date, dropping 21% in the two days following the tsunami. How will this drop in economic status effect not only Japan, but also the markets around the world? It seems that the industries in Japan will continue to drop behind on their products and cause economic troubles for companies around the world in the second quarter. The only money solution that seems to be going Japan’s way is their currency the Yen. During natural disasters investors looks to put their money in safe bets, and currency across the world is not in good shape. It seems that investors look to help the Japanese in a comeback, by investing in the Yen making the economy a little stronger.
