By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: If you save for retirement through a 401(k) plan, or have large IRA or Keogh Plan assets, you probably hurled your last statement in the bin. If you'd been making contributions consistently over the last decade, your last annual or monthly statement probably showed that the current value of your plan was well below the amount you had actually invested.

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrash! The 2007 thru 2008 financial crisis halved 401(k), IRA, and Mutual Fund values in a matter of months.

Market value builds egos; income pays the bills.

UK Christmas Early Sales, 50% Discounts for European Shoppers / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK retail sales are experiencing a Christmas boom that looks set to hit a new record, boosted by buying from our European cousins as distressed retailers bring forward the January sales in the face of fierce competition for foot fall between retailers. The ongoing crash of the British Pound has taken sterling to just a a whisker away from parity to the Euro, now down by more than 30% from its high which means the already liberally advertised 20% discounts translate into a 50% discount for European shoppers, much as Briton's benefited not so long ago from the cheap shopping trips to New York at an exchange rate north of £/$2.00.

But, how could something as universally accepted, widely followed, and apparently “innocent and necessary” as financial planning be setting so many of those who unquestioningly apply it on a course toward a miserable financial future?

Is Credit Card Relief Coming? / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Mike_Shedlock

Credit card defaults are soaring. And banks after having fought credit card reform for years are now in panic mode over losses.

Newsday.Com asks Is Credit Card Relief Coming?
Banks, which are losing billions because many card holders aren't paying anything, seek OK to forgive up to 40% of strapped consumers' debts. Big banks have formed an unusual alliance with consumer advocates to urge the government to allow huge portions of credit card debt to be forgiven, a turnabout from recent years when the banking industry lobbied strenuously to make it harder for consumers to erase their credit card debts in bankruptcy.

Elegant Market-based Solution to the Financial Crisis / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2008

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PROBLEM: In a strange and awkward way, some of us here in the mezzanine have experienced a rather morbid and dark sort of enjoyment as we watch those on stage who created the world-altering credit crisis, and the governments who enabled it, squirm and writhe - like a child caught in his first big lie - as they attempt to sort out the consequences of what they've done. What we see from our vantage point is, instead of coming clean, they continue adding layer-upon-layer of ever-glossier, ever-less-credible volumes to their original prevarications. In my opinion, this is EXACTLY NOT what the world needs right now.

Financial Safety During Financial Crisis and Stocks Bear Market / Personal_Finance / Financial Crash

By: Christopher_Laird

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince so many of the financial community talk endlessly about where to invest, it always seems good to focus on the issue of financial safety. In my view, way to much emphasis is given to getting investing ideas, and little to how to keep what you have. Lots of people get caught in that.

It doesn't help that the financial media, like CNBC is always saying ‘how can you play this' or where would you invest in this situation. There certainly is nothing wrong with that, and surely CNBC wants to be relevant and useful to their massive world audience. But, aren't there times where the clearest strategy is what NOT to do?

Savings Guarantee Raised to £50,000 to Halt Run on UK Banks / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGordon Brown confirms that to all intents and purposes all UK savings are guaranteed to £50,000 per depositor per financial group. This is a reaction to the the Irish governments decision to guarantee all depositor savings at 100% for 2 years which has ignited a flood of scared monies seeking refuge within Irish banks that have operations within the UK. This has resulted in increasing calls from media commentators and politicians for the UK government to follow suit with a similar 100% blanket guarantee.

Bailout Cost per US Tax Payer Analysis / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePre-Vote Commentary- The bailout of Wall Street may not have ultimate costs as high as the nominal bailout amount, but the interest payments on the debt will come due immediately, and the recoveries from Wall Street, if any, will take many years.

The impact of the bailout which will surely happen in one form or the other, will impact taxes, interest rates, the exchange rate of the Dollar, imports and exports, foreign direct investment both in and out of the US, corporate sales and profits, and a long list of economic and investment dimensions too long to mention and to unknowable to predict.

Best Cash ISA Tax Free Savings Accounts- Sept 2008 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Shahla_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

The credit crisis meltdown that last week claimed the scalps of HBOS and Bradford and Bingley continues to exert upward pressure on UK savings interest rates as the banks are unable to borrow from one another on the interbank money markets. However the market has also witnessed drops in savings interest rates as the UK economy is slumping towards a recession with interest rate cuts, for instance Halifax has cut their Fixed Cash ISA rate from 6% to 5.5%. So it pays to do your home work as there is an extremely wide range of between 5% and 7.32%
