The Social Function of Credit Default Swaps / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Philipp_Bagus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhenever the government causes a mess, chances are high that it will accuse speculators of being responsible.[1] In the recent financial crisis, speculators and their financial instruments have been under attack again. Some famous investors have even supported governments' attacks on speculators. Warren Buffet has called derivatives "financial weapons of mass destruction."

FDIC Deposit Insurance, Yet Another Bailout for Reckless Savers and Investors? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe all watched in horror as Washington bailed out failing financial institutions … dishonest lenders … and greedy borrowers and speculators with our tax dollars.

And as responsible savers and investors, we continue to suffer from the fallout as the Federal Reserve’s policies are keeping interest rates on traditional savings vehicles near zero.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Somebody is bluffing.

Either Spain's financial system is on the verge of a breakdown, or hedge funds and speculators are exaggerating the vulnerability of Spain's banks to capitalize on short-selling Eurozone securities.

Euro-zone Credit Crisis and China Shanghai Commodites Market Shakeout / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUntil mid-April, few traders knew much about the credit default swap (CDS) markets. They’re traded on an unregulated, over-the-counter market, and far from the public’s view. Yet nowadays, the CDS market has become a major battleground between high-stakes speculators and Euro-zone politicians, with the fate of the Euro currency hanging in the balance. In turn, the violent swings in the CDS markets are having a profound impact on the global bond, commodity, currency, and stock markets.

European Commission Fires Big Guns, Euro TARP! / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe European Commission brought out the big guns.  In a move intentionally reminiscent of the US TARP program, leaders of the continent’s major economies promised to keep throwing money at the problem in bulk until some of it stuck.  The set of charts below (courtesy of the Financial Times of London) gives a good graphical representation of the crisis to date.

Credit Storm in Europe, Politics on Capital Hill / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCredit market turmoil in the Eurozone has ignited frenzied trading on global markets. On Tuesday, shares tumbled nearly 300 points on the Dow Jones before launching an unconvincing 257-point late-day comeback. Wednesday the mayhem continued; all the major indexes seesawed wildly as positive news on durable goods was nixed by reports on wobbly EU banks. Erratic selling pushed the S&P down to 1,067 while the Dow slipped below 10,000 for the first time since February 7.

Credit Crisis Warning Signs Surging to Market Panic Levels Again / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHeads up people. Something very big is happening in the global credit markets — something you darn well better pay attention to.

The very same “Credit Crisis” indicators that were flashing red before the stock market meltdown of 2007-2008 — the ones Martin and I used to get our subscribers out of almost all stocks, and “short” the market via inverse ETFs — are flashing red again.

Rating Agencies Are Dead: Long Live The Rating Agencies. / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce upon a time rating agencies were independent research companies advising end-buyers and traders on the fundamental value of securities. They sold opinions of value, i.e. they did valuations – they gave an opinion on how likely it was that projected cash flows would materialise in the future; and once you got a fix on that, working out present value is just arithmetic.

Sovereign Debt Crisis, Washington Complicit in Massive Financial Wall Street Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was 7 years ago we said Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were bankrupt. Most everyone within the beltway knew it, but no one would say anything about it. This as it now turns out they were the poster companies, which led to sovereign debt problems, but also showed that they were involved in massive fraud over several years and many in Washington knew it. Earnings were fabricated in order to create conditions, so that the officers could collect millions of dollars in bonuses. Part of this scam was engineered by Goldman Sachs, which pushed more than $100 million in earnings into future years. Earnings were structured so that they justified larger payouts for executives.

Linking Valuation Standards, Basel II, Basil Fawlty, Moody’s, Hitler, & Goldman Sachs / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Gross had a go at the rating agencies this week, as always he has a lot of sensible things to say.

http://www.pimco.com/..

The point he didn’t make clearly (he did make it, but it was easy to get distracted by the discussion of working ladies of the night and six-inch heels…(where does he get his information?)), was that rating agencies have a monopoly franchise to “protect” the world financial system.

Debt Crisis Hit Stock Market Turmoil Continues Benefiting Gold / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe obvious pick for a topic this week would be yesterday’s fearful plunge in US Markets. However, absent a well-defined culprit for the plunge (so far), it seems pointless to speculate on what really happened. I am still sifting through my own observations of that ten-minute span as well as those sent to me by subscribers. There are reports of index ETFs with near zero volume and unfilled orders at the market.

Financial Fight Club: Ackman's Hedge Fund Vs. Wall Street's Ponzi Machine / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen nobody seems to be losing money, nobody cares. If a corrupt scheme is "making money," everyone involved--from the culprits to the dupes--viciously attacks anyone who tries to expose it. Bill Ackman, manager of hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P., learned this lesson the hard way.

Matt Taibbi: The Feds v Goldman Sachs / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom the man who coined Goldman Sachs (GS) the "vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity" ... we have Matt Taibbi's latest take via Rolling Stone. Again, let it be said that some of the best work on our financial oligarchy is being done by a guy in a music magazine. That tells you what a farce corporate media has become. Then again, when almost all outlets are funding the same lobbyist groups (or mirror images) as those funded by the banking cartel... is is surprising?

Did Lehman's Dick Fuld Lie Under Oath About Compensation? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA quite fascinating piece in Bloomberg for those interested in the subject matter, that being executive compensation, how it is hidden by abusing the "spirit of the law", board of director cronyism, and the myth that the CEOs of failed companies actually felt any real pain. We have created a heads we win, tails we still win [Sep 27, 2008: Heads We Win, Tails We Win] executive compensation culture - which is leading to asymmetric outcomes.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe modus operandi (MO) of deviant behavior aids investigators in doing criminal profiling. Forensic accounting takes a similar approach and leads us to some unnerving conclusions about Uncle Sam. As Tax Payers we place our sacred trust in our elected officials and government.

Goldman's "How much of that shitty deal did you sell to your clients?" / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday's hearings of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations laid the groundwork for future criminal prosecutions of Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein and his chief lieutenants whose reckless and self-serving actions helped to precipitate the financial crisis. Committee chairman Senator Carl Levin adroitly managed the proceedings in a way that narrowed their scope and focused on four main areas of concern. Through persistent questioning, which bordered on hectoring, Levin was able to prove his central thesis:
