Samurai Market


Samurai Market
A slang term for the stock market in Japan. Samurai market is usually used buy non-residents of Japan, with a reference to the iconic Japanese warrior - the samurai.

The term Samurai market was used in business slang but has become widely accepted, much like the "Yankee market" refers to U.S. markets and the "bulldog market" refers to the market in United Kingdom.
