Fed Monetization of Debt as U.S. Dollar Flows to Central Banks Collapses / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGrand and glorious global housing bubble came to an end not because it had caused so much money to be borrowed. It came to an end because no more money could be borrowed. Debt bubbles come to traumatic conclusions not because so much credit had been created. Debt bubbles implode when no more credit is available. Lack of credit, the fuel for a mania, is what comes to be the problem.

Can Bernanke's Loose Monetary Policy Save the US Economy? / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs expected a great deal of attention is still being paid to the financial sector and its "toxic assets". And then we have the Dow that now seems -- at least to a great many market players -- to be signalling a recovery despite the fact that unemployment is still rising and looks like reaching the 10 per cent level. Reinforcing the Pollyanna's view of the economy is the emergence of a positive yield curve. In addition, figures from the Institute of Supply Management show that its Performance Manufacturing Index for March was up by 0.5 per cent while new orders were up by 8.1 per cent, production by 0.1 per cent and prices by 2 per cent and employment by 2 per cent.

Quantitative Easing Begins; "Operation Twist" Revisited / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQuantitative easing in the US has begun. The Fed Buys $7.5 Billion of Debt to Cut Borrowing Costs .
The Federal Reserve bought $7.5 billion of Treasuries in the first outright purchase of U.S. government debt by the central bank to keep consumer borrowing costs low since the 1960s. It is the first step in a six-month program to buy up to $300 billion in Treasuries.

Fed Debt Monetization- Creating Credit Out of Thin Air / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week the Fed announced that it would purchase $300 billion of longer-maturity Treasury securities. The mainstream media got all excited, talking about the Fed "printing money." But the Fed figuratively "prints money" or creates credit whenever it acquires assets - loans or investments. For example, when the Fed purchases a mortgage-backed security, it pays for the security simply by crediting the deposit (reserve) account of the security seller's bank.

Ben Bernanke Money Printing U.S. Banana Republic Policies / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHelicopter Ben Bernanke has earned the new moniker of Banana Ben. He has earned the new name because of his desire to make the United States resemble a banana republic instead of embracing the policies that made the U.S. the greatest nation on earth. It is now abundantly clear to all that not only the Fed Chairman but also this administration will do everything in their power to create inflation. Their efforts are derived from the mistaken belief that inflation can solve everything.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) on Wednesday left the Fed funds range unchanged at zero to 0.25%, but stunned the financial markets with an announcement that it would purchase up to $300 billion in longer-term Treasuries over the next six months.

Fed’s $1 Trillion Debt-Buying Plan Loosens Lending and Drains the Dollar / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: While the U.S. Federal Reserve's plan to buy more than $1 trillion in debt has helped unfreeze the credit markets, it has also effectively capped U.S. Treasury yields and undermined the dollar. And that's caused commodities to soar as currency speculators and safe-haven investors head for higher ground.

Fed Debt Monetization Moves Spark Refi Madness / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: The Federal Reserve has done it now. In poker terms, it's gone “all in.” Specifically, the Fed said this week that it will ramp up its purchases of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) from $500 billion to a whopping $1.25 TRILLION in the coming months. The Fed is also going to double its purchases of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Federal Home Loan Bank bonds to $200 billion from $100 billion.

Central Banks Detonate the Quantitative Easing Monetary Nuclear Option / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDesperate times call for desperate measures. As the global “credit crunch” has grown increasingly severe, central bankers are examining the Great Depression of the 1930's for possible parallels that are relevant to today's situation. Most worrisome, is the synchronized meltdown of the global stock markets, which had wiped-out $32-trillion of wealth, on top of another $10-trillion in losses in real estate.

The US Fed To Print Money / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShock and awe is back in vogue. Yesterday was a landmark day in this crisis with the Fed going all-in (see below) after flip flopping about on the merits of quantitative easing (QE). But now it's all hands to the eletronic printing presses as they clearly don't believe that Geithner's TALF could do the heavy lifting required. Stock rallied as VIX declined back to 40 (the floor of its recent range). But is QE a sign of desperation? It is a serious negative for the EUR/USD , which kissed 1.3536 overnight. Gold of course bounced as the textbooks say this will ultimately be inflationary. But it beats living in caves.

First, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) sold off its gold reserves. Next, it began cutting interest rates. Later it announced a bias towards “quantitative easing.” Then we learn it's even willing to loosen bank secrecy rules. Now, this headline from MarketWatch:

Bank of England Ignites Quantitative Inflation / News_Letter / Quantitative Easing

By: NewsLetter

March 5th , 2009 Issue #18 Vol. 3

Economic Shock and Awe as Interest Rates are cut to 0.5% coupled with £75 Billion conjured out of thin air by Mervyn King Waving his magic "Central Bank Magic Wand". The government through what should be more accurately termed as "Quantitative Inflation" than "Quantative Easing" sanctioned £75 billion in the initial print run which will have a multiplier effect through fractional reserve banking and leverage of anywhere from between X10 to X20 the amount depending on how it filters through the economy, therefore £75 billion increase in the money supply implies the supply of credit should jump by anywhere between £750 billion to £1.5 trillion, but more probably in the region of X10 at £750 billion over the next few months, with expectations of several more doses of "Quantitative Inflation" during 2009 that seeks to devalue the British Pound towards parity to the U.S. Dollar.
