Finally managed to buy the Japanese REITs yesterday. The Tokyo Stock Exchange is about 14-16 hours ahead so you have to submit it and check on it later to see if you got lucky.
I’m betting that the Yen will appreciate 20% against the US Dollar[although as moominvalley pointed out, I bought it with Australian dollars!] and that the stagnant Tokyo RE market will pick up.
On another note, the $50 amazon gift card give-away for posting on The Weekend Investor forums doesn’t seem to be taking off. I might have to put up another prize to maybe give away a ~100 year old Morgan Silver Dollar to the person with the highest posts! [login to the weekend investor and let me know if you think you need more motivation!]
