U.S. Treasury Bond market Severely Damaged / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market was severely damaged last week.  The theme from my previous note about the continued deterioration of the credit quality of government bonds and the consequent increase in real yields is certainly coming to fruition in swift fashion.  It all started on Wednesday when the Standard and Poor’s rating agency issued a credit watch (with negative implications – i.e. potential downgrade from the best available AAA rating) for bonds issued by the United Kingdom – also known as Gilts.

Triple-A Credit Rating or Bond Markets Bust? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you take a short walk down memory lane, it will not take you very long to find the carcass of New Century Financial along the side of the road back in March 2007. It would be a full 12 months before the word recession would be mentioned in the US mainstream media and stock markets would roar into their all-time highs six months after the disintegration of New Century. Much of the early portion of the credit crisis as it was called focused on mortgages and after that, mortgage-backed securities. Wow, haven’t heard that term in a while, have we?

Martin says — and he’s exactly right — that the safest place in the world for your money is U.S. Treasury bills. In his book you’ll find a very handy list of money market funds that invest strictly in short-term Treasury securities: No commercial paper, bank notes, or other risky bonds.

Barrons on U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble Bursting / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is the second cover story in 5 months for Barron's on the bursting of the bubble in Treasury yields. I have been closely following the yield on the 10 year Treasury since December, 2008, and I would agree that Treasury yields are ripe for a secular trend change. However, this won't be confirmed until there is a monthly close over 3.43% in yield.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Recovery from Deeply Oversold Levels / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market recovered from deeply oversold levels last week.  Former support at 3% on the 10 Year Treasury Note will be the first major resistance level to watch.  The yield curve on the other hand maintained its steepness as yields declined across the maturity spectrum.  The economic data might look good from far but it is far from good so the main concern for the bond market is not an imminent recovery but a continued deterioration of the credit quality of government bonds as more and more of the excesses of this enormous credit bubble continue to migrate from the private to the public sector.  Look for real yields to expand.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Break Below Short-term Support / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market gave up a major support level 2 weeks ago as the 10 Year Treasury Note moved decisively through 3%.  Last week the bond market followed through with yields rising and prices falling further.  The stocks for bonds switch also continued unabated.  The yield curve also broke out of its trading range around 200 basis points to steepen toward the 230 level.  Long term rates rose from 2.5% just before year end to 4.27% as of last weekend.  That is a 71% rise in a little over 4 months.  That is about double the measly 35% rise in the stock market.  The record debt to GDP level maybe changing in its composition but it is not going away.  Any “green-shoot” that might be fixing to sprout will be nipped in the bud by rising yields.

The Clock is Ticking on the U.S. Dollar and Bond Markets! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is the beginning of the third edition of the “Fingers of Instability” series.  The first edition was in the winter/spring of 2007, the second in the winter/spring of 2008, and now the third in the spring of 2009.  The Fingers of Instability are ANALOGOUS to nature as seen in a sand pile.  In August 2006, John Mauldin (John@frontlinethoughts.com) commented on a study of sand piles by three physicists who created a sand pile with a computer program that dropped one grain of sand on top of another to study critical states:  NON-EQUILIBRIUM systems and uncertainty.  When I read this, I immediately realized the debt bubbles throughout the world were an analogy to these studies and explained a great deal about the last three decades of debt creation.  It reinforced my observations about Ponzi finance and asset-backed economies.  It explained quite nicely what was transpiring and what to expect at some point in relation to PILES of DEBT and the FAKE prosperity and growth caused by EASY MONEY and runaway credit expansion.

Bursting Of The U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble: Not So Fast! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe yield on the 10 year Treasury bond has spiked 10% in the past two weeks, and many are now jumping on the "bonds are the next bubble to burst" bandwagon. I was one of the first to be bearish on Treasury bonds calling for the likelihood of a secular trend change back in December, 2008 and a top in back in February, 2009. Higher Treasury yields are in our future, and it isn't a matter of if but when.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Break Below Support / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market gave up a major support level last week as the 10 Year Treasury Note moved decisively through 3%.  The stocks for bonds switch continued unabated, where it stops, nobody knows.  As the short end remains anchored, any back-up in long term rates causes the yield curve to steepen.  This is a good news – bad news story in the present environment.  It is excellent news for financials that can still afford to borrow short and lend long as they can earn a significant carry on that trade.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market is testing the line in the sand drawn by the Bernanke Fed at 3% on the 10 Year Treasury note yield.  While stocks held their own with the Nasdaq closing positive for the 7th week in a row, bonds continued to trade in a leaky fashion.  There was all sorts of chatter about the government stress tests being flunked by most financial institutions, but until we see an official announcement, rumours of across the board insolvencies remain just that: rumours!

U.S. Treasury Bonds Now 2 Standard Deviations Cheaper than Stocks / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market continues to chop around aimlessly.  The market was stronger most of the week, but a 2 point sell-off on Friday destroyed all the gains and then some.  The fundamental news turned considerably weaker – even in relation to expectations - but the stock market managed to show further gains for the 6th week in a row now.  That generated further outflow from bonds to stocks.  Based on the Fed model which compares the 10 year Treasury note to the dividend yield in the stock market, stocks made a close to 4 standard deviation move relative to bonds in a little over one month.
