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.

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%

Financial System Collapsing- Three Steps To Protect Your Funds Now! / Personal_Finance / Financial Crash

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we stated last November : “In A Short History of Financial Euphoria , John Kenneth Galbraith observes: “All crises have involved debt that, in one fashion or another, has become dangerously out of scale in relation to the underlying means of payment.” We have now reached this ‘ Minsky Moment .' According to Morgan Stanley, the risk is now greater than 50% that the financial system “will come to a grinding halt.” In this Bloomberg video , Gregory Peters, head of Credit Strategy for Morgan Stanley, describes the process of securitization, which “has created this cheap financing environment,” as “broken.”

ICICI 7.2% Fixed Rate Savings Account / Bond Review / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Shahla_Walayat

ICICI Bank is currently offering a market busting fixed interest rate of 7.2%, whilst at the same time speculation is growing of UK interest rate cuts around the corner in the wake of a fast slowing economy, therefore a small window of opportunity exists to lock into a high fixed interest rate as already some banks have stated to cut rates such as Birmingham Midshires.

UK 7% Plus Fixed Rate Savings Bonds- Aug 08 / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Shahla_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite three interest rate cuts, UK fixed rates rose over the summer months to above 7% as cash starved banks, sought to get as much cash in through the doors as possible after failing to obtain credit on the money markets and rejected by the capital markets as evidenced by rights issue failures that prompted emergency action by arm twisting of the big banks to step in and buy up unsold stocks such as that of Bradford and Bingley.

Americans Put Retirements on Hold as Fund Real Valuations Have Collapsed / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone knows the story of the little boy who found that he was able to get into the cookie jar while Mom and Dad were busy doing chores around the house. First he took one cookie and rearranged the remaining morsels around so nobody would notice. Soon enough, however, he had to have another and repeated the process. We all know how this story ends. Eventually, the little guy had eaten so many of the cookies that it is no longer possible to hide the fact that there were but a few left. No amount of shuffling or jumbling could hide it any longer. Sadly, this is rather analogous to the state of retirement savings for many Americans today.

Depositors Require More Secure Financial Institutions / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we referenced last April , it is very important in a deleveraging environment to hold your U.S. Treasury Bills at a secure financial institution. Calling brokers and reps up and asking them if your funds are safe at their institution is like asking the fox if the chickens he is guarding are safe. What do you expect them to say? Since we are independent and only work for our clients, we have been diligently researching the different types of asset custodians. Here is what we found:

Treasury Bill Accounts a Smarter Alternative to Money Market Funds / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Paul_Lamont

Investors are rushing into cash as the financial system is deleveraging. But what form of cash will preserve investor's wealth? ‘Cash-like' instruments, such as adjustable rate securities, have become illiquid with the credit markets. Some money market funds, full of asset-backed commercial paper, have had to be supported by their sponsors. Even bank deposits could be unavailable for a time in an FDIC backlog (they expect to be quite busy as their recent hiring suggests).

Borrowers and Lenders: Take Responsibility for Your Decisions / Personal_Finance / US Debt

By: Alex_Epstein

Throughout the housing crisis, we have heard demands from spokesmen for desperate homeowners, banks, and investors for every variety of government bailout. But there is one group from whom the nation has not heard: the millions of Americans who, like me, had nothing to do with the crisis, who entered into mortgage contracts they could meet or who refused to buy at exorbitant prices, but who will be forced to pay the bills for these bailouts. If we had a spokesman, this is what I wish he would say.
