The Nikkei 225 Average is in a "prime uptrend," Griffiths told CNBC. "It's made a base and it's broken the downtrend line… It's going into a new bull market."

"It's (Japan) got a very resilient economy; able now to do business with Asia, and not rely so much on just selling stuff to the West," he added.

On Monday, the Nikkei was down nearly 1 percent, after having closed above the 10,000 level last week for the first time in 8 months.
