Another God in the making?

If you looked at the SGD=JPY chart for one year, you'll notice that it have been trading in a tide range of +/- 5yen since late March.

Therefore, if you compare the prices from the low of around Sept 08, or the high of late Jan09, the gain is about 10%. Tahn, based ont he rule of economics and business operation, they'll tell you that they've have to factor inflation blar blar... end result no price reduction. :-(

Unless Yen drop to below 70yen to S$1 I don't think we'll see real os singnificant changes in prices.

good for those who are gng to japan for holiday!;)

but seriously doubt the prices of japanese products to drop in SG.
retailers are most likely to sell u at the same price as a week or months ago,
this is the best time for them to earn and not consumers to rejoice.
anyway drop or no drop, consumers in SG are still buying. :confused:

Even if your "trend" is true, you rally need to reconsider you total and utter lack of knowledge of manufacturing and accounting. Canon and Nikon will only drop prices after they have cleared inventory and any current raw material costs have been adjusted. After that, they will try to make profit.

And if anything, the weaker yen will make them INCREASE their price as they would need more yen to buy the same USD of raw materials. What you are referring to is a stronger yen, that may cause them to reduce prices.

Your economics fail already.

Erm...I don't have any knowledge about economics, but if weaker yen they will have to increase price because raw material become more expensive in yen and stronger yen they have to increase price like what happened and is happening, then doesn't that mean the price will only go up and never down?

You seem to be an advocate for higher prices for consumers...

I dont think he is an advocate for higher prices for consumers. He is just stating a fact in the real world.

Theories like "supply, demand and equilibrium " are just theories. Other x-factors do come into play in the real world like the stock market where a particular share price is currently traded at $2 and then a bonus issue of 1 to 1 came along. Analyst will say the correct price will automatically be adjusted to $1. But when the market re-opens, the share price will be ard $1.10. That little $0.10 is called "premium." Many such similar eg abound.

Not 100% true, price will come down but for every 20% up, it comes down by maybe 2%
True, most manufacturers and sellers will share such gains by not using the formula 50:50 but 90:10

One way for the Japanese Camera manufactors to obtain cheaper raw materials without importing is to dig Mount Fuji and use it to make camera bodies. :bsmilie:

As mentioned in my previous post, stock markets will likely to rally this week. These are the Monday Updates:

Stock markets around the world has opened up 1 - 3% higher. As we speak:
Nikkei up 3.1%
Topix up 2.5%
S&P up 2.3%

Various Jap Yen crosses have seen strong Yen selling across the board, signalling a trend in carry trade picking up strongly, meaning YEN direction is going down.

If USDJPY breaks above 94.80 this couple of days, the next target will be 96 and 97.70. Hopefully no bad news to break this trend. (Normally, when Yen drops against USD, it will drop against SGD also- SGDJPY runs a similar trend to other Yen crosses)

There will be people with vested interest who will want you to think prices will always be high, so sellers can use this hysteria to mark up the price. What I am doing is to show the truth to our bros here so they understand the market equilibrium so that you can understand when is the time when prices should come down and consumers can benefit.

Happy money making to those who have made money in the equities! And let's await the drop in Canon prices!

God bless.
