Imminent Banking Stocks Destruction to Push Gold Back through $1,000 / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn important swing in the pendulum is due to manifest itself in the near future. Leverage with gold mining stocks and silver mining stocks depends upon containment of costs. Whether of energy costs (primarily diesel), or materials (like steel & lumber), or labor itself (also in shortage), even equipment (rigs in dire shortage with long waiting periods), the mining firms need to contain costs in order to make their stocks effective investments from which to exploit the rising gold & silver prices. The biggest breakout in the entire collection of commodity prices during the last two months has been in crude oil, with much attention given it. The gold price hit 1000 then pulled back. The silver price hit 21 then pulled back. Crude oil hit 100, then promptly continued its powerful march to 135. Energy prices might be on the verge of a pullback, even a powerful pullback. My forecast is for a pullback to 100 in crude oil this summer, which is soon to begin.

Credit Crisis Money Printing Crack Up Boom Reflections / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs regular readers know, I believe the banking and credit crisis has a long way to go. We are in the 2 nd to 3 rd inning of a nine-inning ballgame. The solution the G7 public servants and central banks will propose is they WILL PRINT THE MONEY as they always have and always will. They are confronted with the reality of INFLATE or die, as to not do so invites a deflationary depression and the complete and total BANKRUPTCY of the financial and banking systems. The human emotion of SELF-preservation insures they will try to avoid the bullet that is leveled at the head of the G7 financial system. “They will duck” and let you take the bullet of inflation, the result of letting their financial systems substitute an ever growing financial and banking sector for private sector wealth generation.

Welcome to the weekly report. This week we look at inflation and deflation, the Dow, gold and FTSE but start with a look at a recent speech by William C. Dudley who is the executive vice president of the Markets Group at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He is also the manager of the System Open Market Account for the Federal Open Market Committee. The Markets Group oversees domestic open market and foreign exchange trading operations and the provisions of account services to foreign central banks.

Mortgage Providers Fail to Pass on Interest Rate Cuts to Borrowers / Housing-Market / Credit Crisis 2008

By: MoneyFacts

“It is now five weeks since the last base rate cut and still 24 lenders (25%) have not announced their intentions with regards to their standard variable rate (SVR). Of those lenders that have done so, 20 (28%) have announced a cut of less than 0.25%. Even more disappointingly is the fact that those lenders which have passed on the smallest cuts offer some of the highest SVR rates.

Credit Crisis Investment Round Table- There's Still Life After Sub-prime / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIS the earthquake that shook the world's leading financial markets last autumn over, or are there still damaging aftershocks to come - in the markets themselves and in the macro economy? This is the question that The Business Times put to a group of international investment experts and the responses in general were encouraging for investors. There is money to be made even in the immediate aftermath of the crisis, not least in commodities. But investment strategies need to be thought out even more carefully than usual at a time such as this. Our four experts set out their thinking - and their model portfolios - for the benefit of BT readers.

LIBOR Interbank Rate Credibility In Doubt / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Bloomberg is reporting Libor Poised for Shake-Up as Credibility Is Doubted .

The benchmark interest rate for $62 trillion of credit derivatives and mortgages for 6 million U.S. homeowners faces its biggest shakeup in a decade as lawmakers question if banks are understating borrowing costs.

For the first time since 1998, the British Bankers' Association is considering changing the way it sets the London interbank offered rate, according to Chief Executive Officer Angela Knight, who appeared before a parliamentary committee in London today. ``We've put Libor under review,'' Knight said in an interview yesterday. The BBA will announce changes May 30, she said.

Socialization of the G7 Banking System and Food Crisis Horror Story / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn today's missive we are going to cover the creeping socialization of the G7 banking system and the second act of the horror show known as biofuels. Slowly but surely, the central banks of the G7 are taking over the short term funding needs of the money center and investment banking industries. The march is set to accelerate as the income streams dive as outlined in the Tedbits 2008 Outlook (Wolf Wave at www.TraderView.com ).

In the second piece we will be covering the unfolding debacle known as biofuels versus food, and the impacts about to unfold in the grain markets. They are set to be quite dramatic. There is no escape from the math. The food price and availability crisis is about to get a whole lot worse .

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe “Group of Seven” central bankers, who control the money spigots in 2/3's of the world's economy, huddled with their colleagues from China and Russia behind closed doors in Basel, Switzerland this week, haunted by the “Crude Oil Vigilantes,” who threaten to unravel G-7 schemes to rescue troubled global banks. Earlier today, the price of West Texas Sweet traded as high as $124 /barrel, doubling from a year ago, and guiding Chicago Corn futures to all-time highs.

Fixing The Credit Markets to Avoid Another Credit Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week in Outside the Box we take up a topic that should be on the top of the agenda of every regulatory authority, executives at financial services firms of all types, and average investors: How do we fix the credit markets to make sure we do not have such a crisis again? Good friend Michael Lewitt of Hegemony Capital Management gives us his observations, some of which go further than I would personally like to see us go. But this is the conversation that must happen if we are to steer clear of future crises. It is clear to me now that a laissez faire approach to regulating certain financial instruments exposes the entire economy to risks much larger than the loss of a business here or there. While better disclosure is certainly appropriate, it is not enough.

Delusional Stock Investors and Credit Crisis Vultures / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Dr_William_R_Swagell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe actions of Central Banks over the past six weeks have helped global markets rebound from their mid-March troughs. Markets that were down 20%-40% from their peaks of last year have now rebounded 8%-10%. So are we now about to launch into a new bull market or are we merely experiencing a counter-trend rally in a bear market?

A Reuters article (28th April, 2008) ran the headline... “Feasting vultures say market may have bottomed ... The allure of rotting mortgage bonds has grown so strong that Wall Street's vultures have begun picking over the carcasses... these intrepid investors have begun betting billions on a hunch that mortgage security prices have fallen enough.”

Worst is Not Over for Stock Market Falls, Credit Crisis Or Fed Rate Cuts / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommentators and pundits alike have erroneously stated that last week's highs in US equity indices broke important technical levels. The Dow has not only failed to breach above a key trend line resistance of 12,920, prevailing since the October highs but also failed to breach the 50% retracement from the same high to the January lows. Similarly, the S&P500's major resistance stands at the 1,410 trend line resistance acting since the October 10 highs. We remind our readers that these recurring failures are no coincidence but instead a technical failure that is largely in synch with prolonged economic uncertainty.

Why the Credit Crisis is Far From Finished / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week in Outside the Box we look at two brief essays which give us different perspective on the Continuing Crisis. The first is by Mohamed El-Erian, the co-chief executive and co-chief investment officer of Pimco. His book, 'When Markets Collide: Investment Strategies for the Age of Global Economic Change', will be published by McGraw Hill in June, and it will be on my summer reading list. El-Erian argues in the thought-provoking piece from the Financial Times that the crisis is still far from finished, and that those who think we are returning to more placid times may be surprised when volatility suddenly becomes even more pervasive.
