Sound Bites: Oil enters a bear market after a mixed verdict on Japanese stimulus (Update)

Updates number of mining stocks to 30 from 31 in third paragraph, adds that they are in the Basic Materials sector.

Japanese bonds and oil are shaky, should we worry? On Friday, Business Insider noted that oil had slipped into a bear market after falling 20% from its recent peak of just over US$51 per barrel.
