It’s finally time to get excited about the Japanese stock market, according to a new article from Money Morning.

That’s right. After a two decade long bear market, Japanese voters have finally shown the world that they’re ready for real reform. This is great news for anyone interested in investing in Japanese stocks.

Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan’s narrow victory over Ichiro Ozawa for the leadership of the Democratic Party of Japan wouldn’t normally get investor pulses racing. After all, Japan has had five prime ministers in four years.

However, the Bank of Japan’s heavy intervention in the currency markets last week has shown that times are changing in Japan – for the better.

Money Morning Contributing Editor and former merchant banker Martin Hutchinson thinks this election is great news for investors looking for new opportunities in Asia.

“Japan’s stock market appears to have better rebound prospects than many other markets around the world,” says Hutchinson.

In his new article on Money Morning, Hutchinson explains:
·    Why the defeat of Ichiro Ozawa – a powerful politician known as the “Shadow Shogun” – signals the end of big-spending in Japanese politics
·    How last week’s intervention in the currency markets will immediately help Japanese exporters
·    Why Kan’s victory has smart investors eager to jump back into the Japanese stock market
