By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: The wait is over. The Federal Reserve will conclude its Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting today and, of course, all of you will know what Chairman Ben Bernanke’s current thinking will be.

We have been hearing grumblings from other Federal Reserve members across the nation about how the voting members should consider tapering the Fed’s bond buying.

There’s really no telling what will happen. The markets have become truly schizophrenic. For instance, stocks continue to rally as though more QE is coming.

END GAME Singularity: The System Will Be Purged through Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2013

Interest 

Interest Rates represent the Balance Between Capital and Labor.

Economic History revolves around that Balance Moving from one extreme to the other.

Human Nature and Mathematics Drive those Swings.  No Group or Force can Stop that.  Any Machination or Manipulation, Individually or Collectively can only Elongate, Not Alter that Outcome.

What the U.S. Treasury Bond Market Says About Likelihood of Fed QE Tapering / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Graham_Summers

The big question on every investors’ lips today and tomorrow is: “will the Fed announce or hint at tapering QE?”

Over the last two years, one of the biggest tools in the Fed’s arsenal has been verbal intervention: the act of saying something in order to push the market up. Time and again 2011-2012 saw various Fed Presidents appear at key points to push the market higher by promising more action or stimulus.

Bill Gross: Why QE Will End Before the Fed Wants It To / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: Legendary bond guru Bill Gross doesn't think too highly of the Federal Reserve and Ben Bernanke's monetary policies.

"There comes a point when no matter how much blood is being pumped through the system as it is now, with zero-based policy rates and global quantitative easing programs, that the blood itself may become anemic, oxygen-starved, or even leukemic, with white blood cells destroying more productive red cell counterparts," Gross writes in his June investment outlook titled Wounded Heart.

U.S. Bond Market - If There’s a Time to Panic… It’s Now / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: I received several letters from readers concerning my recent column opining that the 30-year bull market in bonds is over.

Some asked if it was really that big a deal that bonds fell by 2% in May. The answer is yes. It is a big deal, especially when 10-year Treasurys yielded just 1.7% a month ago. That slight sell-off erased more than a year’s worth of interest.

Is Compound Interest Friend Or Foe? / Interest-Rates / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Amid all the superficial up and down rumblings of stocks and bonds, and hyped up analysis thereof, none of which makes you any wiser (hey, I told you Abenomics can't work..), it's a good idea to look at some of the more profound workings of the financial system. I saw an interesting take on an angle into this, even though unfortunately it was by itself also superficial.

The angle in question was provided by Walter Hickey for Business Insider, in an article (originally) entitled " Compound Interest Is Responsible For Modern Civilization " (it later turned into "A Simple Math Formula Is Basically Responsible For All Of Modern Civilization", but that’s not even true: just because something can be expressed in a math formula doesn't mean it turns into that formula). It's interesting, and it's not bad, but, sorry Walter, with all respect, I don't think it's good enough.

The Painful Price of Subsidized Money / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Money_Morning

Martin Hutchinson writes: Bond yields have been generally declining, and the market as a whole is set up for them to continue the trend.

Not bad, right?

Wrong.

It's extremely dangerous - to all investors - because it can't go on forever. It's not a question of if this might happen, it's a question of when.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Will be Returned to Sender / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The USTreasury Bond is the primary vehicle for the USDollar. Nations do not hold the USDollar in raw currency form, except for the crime syndicates. They hold them in USTBond form, in order to gather some interest income. In the last few years, not few months, but years, the interest has been next to nothing, and surely far less than what it should be, given the risk and the nasty undermine to value by the monetary action by the central bank itself. Paltry interest aside, with all its unfortunate deterrent toward investment in USGovt debt, the USFed has been kicking out the value pillars for a very long time, far longer than the limit imposed loosely by Sir Alan Greenspasm of six to eight months. With the cost of money near zero, all markets are distorted, all assets improperly priced, and Gold marked for illicit ambush on a regular basis by the fascists.

Japan’s Easy Money Tsunami / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: David_Howden

The Bank of Japan has embarked on one of the most inflationary policies ever undertaken. Pledging to inject $1.4 trillion dollars into the economy over the next two years, the policy is aimed at generating price inflation of 2% and further depreciating the Yen. The idea is to fight “deflation” and increase exports.

Fed Gearing Up to Scale Back on QE / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bloomberg

Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank president Dennis Lockhart told Bloomberg TV's Michael McKee today that Fed officials are committed to stimulus even as divergent views on when to start paring back bond purchases create a "mixed message" to investors.

Lockhart said, "There certainly seems to be an acute fixation on the timing of any adjustment to the asset purchase program and I guess I would just encourage everyone to not lose sight of the bigger picture." He went on to say, "Any adjustment is not a major policy shift. The high level of accommodation will stay in place."

Economies Addicted to Low Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

It is amazing so many investors are oblivious to the fact that the developed world is completely addicted to artificially-produced low interest rates. Perhaps that is why there is still a debate over whether the ending of QE will adversely affect the economy, and if rising rates can occur within the context of a healthy economy.

Is the US Treasury Bond Market Turning? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Simit_Patel

Perhaps the biggest macroeconomic event to watch for is the potential that the US Treasury bond market is turning south -- and that bond yields will rise significantly. This has many implications for the global economy, as capital flowing out of the US Treasury bond market -- the largest non-currency financial market -- will drastically impact values in other markets.

Why U.S. Treasury Bonds Are Still the Worst Investment / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: Savers have had a difficult time finding suitable places to allocate capital from which they can derive income. I’ve previously warned against allocating new funds to the investment strategy of U.S. Treasuries, as this would likely be the worst investment over the next decade.

Now, it appears that investors are increasingly coming to the same conclusion that I stated several months ago in these pages: U.S. Treasuries are set for a significant drop in price.

Fed Money Printing Real Conundrum! / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Robert_M_Williams

Back in the heady days of Alan Greenspan, when you couldn’t identify a bubble until it was too late, the Maestro was busy printing.  The money went into the tech stocks up until that train went off the tracks in early 2000. So the Fed started to print even more and that led to a housing bubble. As most of us are painfully aware, the housing blew up in 2007 so Greenspan’s predecessor, Ben Bernanke, had to put the printing press into a higher gear. The Fed then created mandates in order to justify the excesses and they included increased growth and employment. Unemployment must drop to 6% or less and growth must surpass 3% while keeping inflation at 2%. The end result of all this is a chart of the money supply that looks like this:

Funny Money Turns Serious / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Brady_Willett

When former Asian Development Bank head, Haruhiko Kuroda, was nominated to be the next Bank of Japan Governor on February 27, 2013 he was not shy about stating his intentions: “there is "plenty of room for monetary easing”” (WSJ). And after landing the job as BOJ Chief, Kuroda immediately confirmed that he would do “whatever it takes” to end deflation.  Well, a mere two months and a massive new printing scheme later, Kuroda is already on the defensive, arguing that a recent jump in bonds yields is manageable and asset prices are not behaving irrationally.

Why Bernanke and His Pals Are Terrified / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Graham_Summers

Two big events have occurred/ are occurring.

1)   Chicago Fed President, Charles Evans who is one of the biggest pushers for QE, stated that the Fed has “the appropriate monetary policy in place” and that the economy is “improving quite a lot.”

2)    The Bank of Japan is beginning a two-day policy meeting today.

Regarding #1, Evans has been one of the biggest pushers for more QE. Throughout 2011 and 2012, every time he appeared on TV he stated that the Fed should do more.
