How Safe is My FDIC-Insured Bank Account? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Dr_Martenson

    Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYour bank account may not be as safe as you think (or hope). Taking a deeper look at the legal details and the financial depth of the FDIC reveals several troubling details that call into question how the FDIC would fare during a true banking crisis. 

    The US is coming out of a period of unusually low banking stress and failures. Since it is typical human behavior to let one's guard down during tranquil periods, we might legitimately ask if this has happened with respect to the FDIC.

The Real Scoop on Annuities - Part One / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInsurance companies have always been big time financial institutions, and they could probably have claimed possession of the largest and safest investment portfolios on the planet. At one time, their role vis-à-vis Wall Street was clearly that of a giant customer for the securities the investment banks brought to market and which the securities firms distributed. Their real estate holdings were religious in size and quality. They were direct lenders to corporations, their owner-policyholders, and to other institutions. They were the Trustees who managed the private employee pension plans of the world.

Abbey Super Cash ISA 10%- Too Good to be True? / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAbbey have launched what on face value looks like an unbeatable market breaking Cash ISA savings account paying a remarkable 10% for up to 13 months on lump sum investments of up to£3,600 (from 6th April), but and there is a big BUT, savers also have to invest a lump sum into their Guaranteed Equity Bond GEB, which usually tend to prove to be very bad investments, therefore this article attempts to present an objective look at the Abbey product to determine whether or not it stacks up against other Cash ISA's such as the Barclays 12 month Tax Haven Cash ISA paying 6.5%.

Best Cash ISA Savings Accounts- Barclays Tax Haven ISA -March 2008 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Shahla_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe end of the Tax year is little more than 3 weeks away giving enough time for savers to make sure that their cash ISA allowances are fully utilised. Savers can still enjoy remarkably good rates of interest despite two Bank of England interest rate cuts to 5.25%. This continues to be as a consequence of the credit crunch which means that cash starved banks are willing to pay savers that bit extra to get cash in through the doors. Though as the economy slows there will be further cuts in UK interest rates and therefore cash ISA savings rates will decline further from the heady levels approaching 7% seen in October 2007.

Devaluation of Your Savings - When Cash is Trash, Part II / Personal_Finance / Inflation

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen I wrote Part I of "When Cash is Trash" just three months ago — colleagues, investors, even friends and family told me I was nuts. "How can you go wrong with keeping most of your money safe in cash?" they asked.

"Safe?" I replied. "Give me a break!" Cash is like any other investment — its value goes up and down relative to other assets. Back then I said the current environment made cash just about the worst investment to hold on to. And, today, I still believe that.

Credit Card Balance Transfers – Not What They Used to be / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

Samantha Owens, Head of Personal Finance at Moneyfacts.co.uk, comments on the 0% balance transfer deals and how this market has changed: “It was way back in 2004 when balance transfer fees first started to raise their ugly heads on 0% credit card deals.
