Japanese earthquake (and impact on financial markets)

Japanese earthquake was a real disaster and economic turndown. Japan was already struggling with their existing problems and now this.
However... I strongly believe that most of those who have the finances and some financial knowledge invested in Japanese stock market/currency market/etc... Prices hit bottom low and from there it's pretty much all up.
Below there is a Bloomberg link to Nikkei 225 where we can clearly see how low the market has fallen.
It is still not too late to invest. But Nikkei may fall even deeper... We will see what awaits us.

Here is a pic of 1995 Kobe EQ. After it seemed that the market began to recover, boom, major drop.

Nothing better with the USD/YEN. Government was struggling hard to keep yen strong and then it hit them. It seems to recover, beware though.

You can see the fall on the right.

How to Identify and Trade Reliable Support and Resistance

Just some interesting words about positions that rely on historic s/r levels.
I have checked this AUD/USD historic 0.6340 level - and it's acutally really reliable s/r level. It would be really interesting to find some other historic levels on other pairs.
