U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble about to POP! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Claus_Vogt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial history shows that interest rates — and hence bond prices — have risen and fallen in long-term trends spanning decades. The following chart shows the 10-year Treasury since 1953.

As you can see, rates started rising shortly after the recession that ended in May 1954. In the second half of the 1960s this uptrend gathered speed. The market seemed to smell high inflation coming in the 1970s. And by the end of that decade and into 1980/81 rates soared. In fact, they peaked at slightly more than 15 percent — six times higher than the 1954 low!

Fed Builds Bubble in Junk Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Shedlock

The Fed's misguided policies have not done a thing for small businesses, the unemployment rate, or the real economy in general but they have induced a mad dash for yield in junk bonds, easily in a bubble state right now.

So, Who Is Selling U.S. Treasury Bonds? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQE2 is coming, and it isn’t stocks the Fed buys in large quantities with its quantitative easing. It buys treasury bonds, in an effort to drive long-term interest rates down, which should drive the price of bonds up.

But the bond market hasn’t been as excited about the idea of all that buying as the stock market has been. In fact, just the opposite. Treasury bonds have been tumbling since late August.

Foreigners Buy $117 Billion of U.S. Treasury Bonds During August / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: OilPrice_Com

Dave Forest writes: The U.S. bond market is murky these days.

Yields have been plummeting. But some of the action is almost certainly due to the Federal Reserve once again buying Treasuries. Since August 19, the Fed has bought $40 billion in government bonds.

U.S. Treasury and Junk Bonds, A Casino Royale? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Kieran_Osborne

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve’s (Fed) extraordinarily low interest rate policies have encouraged fixed income investors to take on evermore exposure to credit risks. With the global economic recovery looking more and more unstable with every new piece of economic data released, fixed income investors may be following a strategy akin to gambling at the roulette table. Investors may want to be careful not to let this transpire into a bad vacation in Vegas; we are concerned many investors may find themselves left out of pocket, hung-over with a bad taste in their mouth.

Further Limiting Your Risk with CDs or Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s now official: As I suggested last week, Social Security recipients are not getting any cost-of-living increase in 2011. This marks the second straight year of flat monthly checks.

That fact, combined with the paltry interest rates on many traditional income investments, is certainly causing a lot of people major angst right now.

Investors Inflating the U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, bond prices were so high that a two-year government note yielded a miniscule 0.43%. To get more than one percent interest, you have to accept the five-year Treasury note yield of 1.32%. The ten-year yield? 2.60%. The 30-year long bond? A laughable 3.78%! Hahaha! This is insane!

Bernanke's Declaration of Independence, U.S. Treasury Junk Bond Future / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke gave a grim speech on October 4. It did not get media attention. That was because it was so grim.

It was on the looming fiscal crisis of the Federal government. There will be no easy way to avoid it, he said. Congress has to decide what spending to cut. This means that Congress must decide which special-interest groups to alienate. Then it must decide which taxes to raise. Whose ox will get gored?

Why Certificates of Deposit (CD's) are More Attractive than U.S. Treasury Bonds Today / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week I told you why many mutual fund investors could be setting themselves up for serious losses in Treasury bonds.

Just to recap — the idea was that mutual funds often buy and sell before their bonds reach maturity, which can translate to big losses for fund holders if interest rates rise. And the upshot was that, if you wanted to truly guarantee against any type of loss, you would have to hold individual bonds to maturity.

The Bernanke Treasury Bond Market Put / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Peter_Navarro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to Market Edge: “After four weeks of impressive gains, stocks took a breather last week as both the DJIA and the NASDAQ ended the period with minor losses. The DJIA started the week with a 48.22 point (-0.4%) loss which was just the fifth losing session in September. Traders bought the dips throughout the week as the DJIA saw triple digit intra-day swings on both Tuesday and Thursday. Despite several disappointing economic reports, traders kept a bullish outlook throughout the week. For the period, the Dow lost 30 points (-0.3%) to close at 10829, snapping its four week win streak.&r

Regime Uncertainty and Treasury Bond Yields / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Robert_Higgs

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRegime uncertainty has gained increasing recognition as the current economic troubles have persisted with little or no improvement since the economy reached a cyclical trough early in 2009. As described in my 1997 paper, regime uncertainty pertains to the likelihood that investors' private property rights in their capital and the income it yields will be attenuated further by government action.

The Risks of Buying U.S. Treasury Bond Funds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA number of us here at Weiss have been warning you about the dangers of buying bonds in this ultra-low-interest-rate environment, especially longer-dated U.S. Treasuries.

But as I recently told my Dad’s Income Portfolio subscribers, I think mainstream investors are still ignoring the risks they’re taking with bonds, particularly when it comes to fixed-income mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.

Long Term Bonds, Inflation and Deflation / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBeen thinking about Bonds, inflation, deflation, etc recently. Everyone seems to have a different opinion these days. Checking around all I could find on long term Gov't Bond rates was at the St. Louis FED. Could not find anything elsewhere. After reviewing the charts of Long Term Gov'ts since 1925, Moody's AAA since 1919, and Moody's BAA since 1919 ... I found a pattern.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Bonds have provided a welcome safe-haven for investors seeking shelter from the financial maelstrom of the past two years, offering steady returns while stocks bounce up and down.

Now some analysts are afraid that once the selling of bonds begins it will be indiscriminate, and there will be a bloodbath. But that fear totally ignores the new investment reality in which we're living.

Let's notice that it plunged to new lows at 100.85 for the decline off of the 8/25 high at 109.50 and in so doing has broken the Apr-Sep up trendline at 102.15 (for a second consecutive session).
