TOKYO -- Even under an economy struggling in prolonged deflation, some Japanese investors manage to build up assets worth millions of dollars.

One notable item among the findings was that successful investors holding financial assets worth 100 million yen ($914,317) or more typically had their own winning patterns, compared to other investors with smaller assets.
