Who Will Bail Out the US FED? / Stock-Markets / Central Banks

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhoever believes that the most recent Fed/JP Morgan heist to acquire Bear Stearns, along with other simultaneous and preceding Fed actions, were ”successful” had better check again.

The current crisis is so severe, and it has already forced the Fed to reach into its own balance sheet grab-bag so deeply, that a very legitimate question arises, and the question is this: when the Fed ploughs all the way through its own balance sheet and gets to the bottom of the barrel, who will bail it out?

The US Fed IS Responsible for the Credit Crunch! / Stock-Markets / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's Time to Dump the Federal Reserve    - The credit storm which began in July when two Bear Stearns hedge funds were forced to liquidate, has continued to intensify and roil the markets. Last week the noose tightened around auction-rate securities,a little-known part of the market that requires short-term funding to set rates for long-term municipal bonds. The $330 billion ARS market has dried up overnight pushing up rates as high as 20% on some bonds---a new benchmark for short term debt. Auction-rate securities are now headed for extinction just like the other previously-vital parts of the structured finance paradigm. The $2 trillion market for collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), the multi-trillion dollar mortgage-backed securities market (MBSs) and the $1.3 asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) market have all shut down draining a small ocean of capital from the financial system and pushing many of the banks and hedge funds closer to default.

Central Bank Hypocrisy - Fighting Inflation AND Debasing the Dollar / Currencies / Central Banks

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflation targeting is yet to be formally adopted by the Federal Reserve (Fed), but recent market and Fed actions already prove that it is a failure. At the whim of trouble in the markets, Fed Chairman Bernanke has made it clear that he is inclined to flood the markets with liquidity at any cost; he said: “We stand ready to take substantive additional action as needed to support growth and to provide adequate insurance against downside risks.”

Central Bank Ponzi-Regimes to the Rescue of Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Central Banks

By: Joseph_Russo

Kindly indulge us - as we pen this week's intro with the spirit and dark-humor of a Dennis Miller-like rant.

We cannot help but find it quite amusing that:

The titan institutions currently adhering to egregiously mutated paradigm-doctrines, handed down by their founding architects - the global cartel of central banks - (financial engineers of worthless marked-to-nothing fiat-paper) suddenly find themselves scrambling to affect “rescue” across a broad spectrum of over-bloated markets, from a systemically induced crisis of inevitability - spawned from the godfather of all Ponzi-schemes from which they preside.
