US Treasury Bonds to be Hit by $500 Billion Quarterly Flood / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The U.S. Treasury Department announced Nov. 3 that it intended to borrow a record $550 billion in the fourth quarter. That represents a staggering $408 billion increase over Treasury's borrowing estimate from early August and includes $260 billion for the recapitalization of U.S. banks.

Make no mistake about it: There will be enough U.S. Treasury bonds to choke on, as the government tries to finance this debt.

U.S. Bonds Weaker in advance of Massive Issuance of Bailout Treasury Bills / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market lost 4 points last week as the yield on the 10 year note gravitated back to the 4% level that seems to be acting as a magnet of equilibrium these days. While the bounce in the stock market has put some pressure on US Treasury and other government bonds, the real driver for interest rates at the present time is supply. There are certainly a number of other problems that are supportive for the bond market, but all the bailouts, guarantees and government as well as Federal Reserve programs will have to be paid for. It will be done with a massive increase in the issuance of Treasury Bills, Notes and Bonds.

Pullback in U.S. Treasury Bonds Appears Complete / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The large 6-week coil pattern in the Lehman 20-Year T-Bond ETF (AMEX: TLT) hit its 3rd coordinate on the high side last Friday at 100.00 (off of the 10/17 low at 93.02), and since has pulled back to this morning's low at 96.02, which represents a 60% correction of the 10/17-10/24 upleg. The strength off of 96.02 suggests strongly that the pullback is complete and is turning to the upside to enter a new upleg that will retest and likely hurdle resistance between 100.00 and 100.86 -- on the way to 102.00.

Bonds Crash as Stock Markets Bounce / InvestorEducation / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market traded sharply lower again last week as tiny glimmers of hope appeared on the horizon indicating that the worst of the financial upheaval for this month might be behind us. After a record breaking crash in equities during the first third of October, stocks actually managed to show some gains last week as some metrics of financial distress such as elevated LIBOR levels, 0% Treasury Bill yields and record premiums for Credit Default Swaps managed to subside a tad. We are far from normal on most fronts but at least for the moment it appears that the sky has stopped falling!

Treasury Bonds ETF Inverse Trend to Stock Market Indices / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo some degree, the TLTs (Lehman 20 Yr T-bond, ETF) trades inversely to the equity indices like the SPYs (for instance); however, my sense is the recent upside explosion in the stock averages and the recent plunge in TLT prices have "corrected" and defused the bulk of that relationship, which if accurate, means that a new relationship is forming based less on flight-to-safety and more on the still-challenging (to put it mildly) economic fundamentals that will not be corrected any time soon.

Government Bonds Strong Rally on Grim Economic Outlook / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market traded up last week as panic in financial markets intensified. The latest and greatest $700 Billion bailout package was finally passed by the US authorities last Friday, but it did not seem to make much difference as stocks dropped another 3-4% once the deal was officially passed. As previously mentioned in this here column, it is just another band-aid that hopes to provide quick relief for the symptoms of this gigantic financial crisis without addressing the real problem of dealing with the excess credit that has been built up on all fronts. European governments have also been busy with various rescue plans. Ireland and Germany are leading the charge by declaring that those governments now will guarantee all deposits in their respective banking systems. Surely other countries, including the US , will not be far behind adopting this drastic measure.

Escalating Bailout Band-aids Hit US Treasury Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBonds traded mostly in negative territory all last week. It looks like it is just regular business these days: another week, another bail-out package. The figure that is bandied about for the latest and greatest deal is a cool $700 Billion. It is just another band-aid in a series of larger and larger band-aids that hopes to provide quick relief for the symptoms of this gigantic financial crisis without addressing the real problem of dealing with the excess credit that has been built up on the consumer, corporate and government fronts. It will be raining Treasury bonds in the foreseeable future, so it is no wonder that the increasing weakness on the fundamental front is not providing much support for lower yields in the long term maturities at this juncture.

US Treasury Bonds Experience Massive Volatility / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlong with the rest of the financial markets, the US Treasury market experienced massive volatility during the past week. The Long Bond future traded up over 5 points before ending the week almost unchanged. The 30 year Treasury bond yield traded below 4%, which is the lowest level in over 40 years. Even more significantly, the US 3 month Treasury Bills yielded less than 0.1% for a couple of days as financial markets threatened to seize up. All of the sudden drawing comparisons – even in the main stream media - with the 1990s Japanese depression and the Great Depression of the 1930s does not seem so far fetched any more. It took us years if not decades to get into this mess, I expect it will take a little longer than 3 to 6 months to get out!

US Treasury Bonds Slide as Financial's Take Turns at Blowing Up / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Treasury market seems to be running out of steam here in spite of supportive data from economic fundamentals. Canadian long term bonds have kept pace with the trend to lower yields in the US market and seem to be poised for a breather as well.

The cream of the financial crop is relentlessly taking turns at blowing up. Last week it was Fannie and Freddie – the largest mortgage companies in the world, this week it was Lehman Brothers - another one of the largest investment dealers on the planet, next week it looks like it could be AIG – not long ago the largest insurance company around – that might be on the bankruptcy block.

The Treasury market has been stair-stepping higher since the middle of July. The US Long bond is closing in on the top of its annual range as the summer draws to a close with the Labour Day weekend upon us. It is time to take deep breath and have a look at what the big picture looks like. Naturally, we are most interested in how this picture will impact interest rates going forward.

US Treasury Bonds Range Trade Around 4% / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury market streaked to 3 positive weeks in a row even after higher than expected inflation data.

On the financial sector front, write-offs have now exceeded $500 Billion. Conservative estimates from established organizations such as the IMF are forecasting the final tab to be over a trillion dollars. Meanwhile more pessimistic forecasters such as Nouriel Roubini are looking for double that figure by the time it is all done. The take away from this story is that the write-offs are nowhere close to being finished. The flavour of the past week was auction rate securities.

US Treasury Bond Market Outlook / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The Treasury market managed to make it 2 positive weeks in a row even in the face of a stronger stock market.

Last week it was Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's turn to report losses that were out of this galaxy. Both of those stocks are now trading comfortably under $10 per share, but the Administration still maintains that there is no bailout necessary to save these mortgage behemoths. Credit spreads remain under pressure and liquidity is not improving. The Wall/Bay street analyst community is slow to react but the torrent of downgrades keep poring in as a result. On-going problems on this front are likely to support the bond market.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBonds are an important part of many portfolios, particularly for those investors in mid to late states of economic life, or for endowments or pensions.

Bonds are important for capital preservation and portfolio volatility moderation.  In some cases, for experienced traders, they can also be a source of capital gains, but they are normally used for conservative purposes.

Last week we saw Merrill Lynch in the news again as they wrote off another $5 billion+ in assets. Leading basket cases Fannie and Freddie will be rescued by the government but that will not be much help to the shareholders. Ongoing problems on this front are likely to support the bond market.

U.S. Treasuries: Worse than the US Dollar! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat's right. You read it correctly. Now why would I say something that even most “experts” would laugh at? Because I want to point out once again how so many out there are in the dark, even the so-called experts; you remember, the guys who missed this entire meltdown. Of course, now with so many banks in a dangerous position, I've seen many advisers change face and jump on the doom bandwagon.
