Bank of England Throws £50 billion of Tax Payers Money at the Banks / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe credit crisis is forcing the Bank of England to morph the Collaterised Mortgage Backed Securities Market into the Collaterised UK Government Bond Backed Mortgage Market. In effect the Bank of England is swapping 100% guaranteed Government Bonds for illiquid, un-priceable Mortgage backed junk securities. Thus allowing the banks to offer Government Bonds as security on the Interbank Market.

Federal Reserve Notes Backed by Worthless Mortgage Bonds- Who Will Bail Out the Fed? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe silence has been deafening. Since that fateful weekend in the middle of March when they almost lost control, things have been eerily quiet. In fact, today, the DOW finds itself up over 200 points in the face of another $5 Billion in losses at Citigroup. The losses have been spun as positive with most in the financial press saying in essence that we should be happy because it could have been a lot worse. Many have now even boldly called a bottom in the losses stemming from the subprime mortgage crisis. Haven't we heard this before?

Government Interventions Tinkering with the Deleveraging Derivatives Monster / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Doug_Wakefield

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStaying Alive - The size and frequency of the government's interventions into the markets, especially over the last month, has generated little coverage. Those articles that have addressed this seem to ignore its implications, concluding that the markets will chug along indefinitely. The only real surprise is that these comments have more frequently come from individuals who have written extensively of the morass in our financial system. How is it that so many take such historically profound information in stride? Why does most of the public not recognize the numerous warning signals the real world is giving to prepare for significant changes?

LIBOR Sends Another Warning Signal to the Global Financial Markets / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Martin_Hutchinson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe news that the London Interbank Offer Rate (LIBOR) system of setting interest rates is running into trouble was surprising at first glance.  It seems some banks are giving phony LIBOR quotations that don't reflect the true rates at which they accept deposits. In the perfect financial system, beloved of regulators and academics, this kind of discrepancy shouldn't happen.

In the real world it does, and I'll explain why.

Bank of England Prepares to Ramp Up the Money Printing Presses / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGordon Brown having bottled out of an October 2007 election ahead of an economic slump during 2008 and 2009, is now attempting to prepare the ground works for an 2009-2010 election by giving the Bank of England the green light to print as much money as is necessary to enable the UK banks to restart lending to the consumer so as to prevent a multi-year housing bear market with accompanying recession that will ensure his election defeat.

Stein's Law- Mean Reversion Results in US Wealth Contraction / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we look at a remarkable and important essay by my friend Dr. Woody Brock who is one of my favorite "Outside the Box thinking" economists. I seriously look forward to Woody's quarterly insights and devour them as soon as the come in.

I especially urge you to read and re-read the first few paragraphs, and then think about what mean reversion will mean to US wealth growth, and to the developed world in general. This is a very important concept, and basic to economics, but one that has not had enough attention drawn to it. Coupled with high valuations, the headwinds facing traditional investments are getting stronger.

How Safe is My FDIC-Insured Bank Account? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Dr_Martenson

    Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYour bank account may not be as safe as you think (or hope). Taking a deeper look at the legal details and the financial depth of the FDIC reveals several troubling details that call into question how the FDIC would fare during a true banking crisis. 

    The US is coming out of a period of unusually low banking stress and failures. Since it is typical human behavior to let one's guard down during tranquil periods, we might legitimately ask if this has happened with respect to the FDIC.

Central Banking- Why Fix What Does Not Work? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTime of the Vulture - In times of expansion, it is to the hare the prizes go. Quick, risk taking, and bold, his qualities are exactly suited to the times. In periods of contraction, the tortoise is favored. Slow and conservative, quick only to retract his vulnerable head and neck, his is the wisest bet when the slow and sure is preferable to the quick and easy.

Every so often, however, there comes a time when neither the hare nor the tortoise is the victor. This is when both the bear and the bull have been vanquished, when the pastures upon which the bull once grazed are long gone and the bear's lair itself lies buried deep beneath the rubble of economic collapse.

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bright new financial system, with all its talented participants, with all its rich rewards, has failed the test of the marketplace. " Former Fed Chief, Paul Volcker

A specter is haunting Wall Street---the specter of insolvency. One major player, Bear Stearns, has already gone under, and from the looks of it, another may be on the way. It's getting ugly out there. The so-called TED spread---which measures the willingness of banks to lend to each other---has begun to widen ominously suggesting that the money markets believe another body will be floating to the surface any day now.

Credit Crisis Spreads Beyond Banks Hitting Corporate Earnings / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the consumer “all done in?” - ( Bloomberg ) The Reuters/University of Michigan preliminary index of consumer sentiment decreased to 63.2 this month, the weakest level since 1982, when the jobless rate approached 11 percent, the worst since the Great Depression. In other figures released today, the Labor Department reported that the cost of imported goods climbed 14.8 percent in March from a year ago, led by oil.

``The consumer's feeling increasingly hemmed in,'' said Brian Bethune , director of financial economics at Global Insight Inc. in Lexington , Massachusetts . ``They've got higher energy bills, higher gasoline bills, higher food bills and obviously the employment markets are nowhere near as strong as they were.''

Volatility is front and center as confusion reigns supreme in the broad investing public, driving them all over the place except to where they should be focusing. “Volatility is opportunity” and it is abundant, providing prepared investors with gargantuan opportunities. If you are not benefiting from it, “do more homework” or find a new advisor who does. The bear market in PAPER assets, or those underpinned by them, are in full retreat creating GIANT “fingers of instability” (see Tedbits archives at www.TraderView.com ) which provide opportunities for astute investors.
