Nikkei's overall trend, revealed by trends of price, leverage, and time, are defined and discussed in the Matrix for subscribers.
The Nikkei's focused bull opportunity has produced an impressive 120% annualized gain for the bulls since the fourth week of October (see $NIKK Matrix). Disciplined bulls that recovered their initial investment in the second week of December are letting their profits run while watching TIME.
Smart money, a small minority listening to the message of the market, recognizes the decay of TIME as BuST rises above 0 and approaches 2. BuST = -0.2 define a trend approaching the mid point of the up cycle.
A weekly close above the August 2015 gap from 19,192 to 19,435 supports the up impulse, while a close below support from 17613 to 17905 could reverse it. A reversal favors testing of lower support.
