Unintended Consequences of Well-Intended Policies / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Lacy Hunt for Casey Research writes:In the early 1960s, when JFK was in the White House and William McChesney Martin was Fed chairman, Keynesian economics was in full bloom. One of its major tenets is the Phillips Curve, which posits a stable inverse relationship between the rate of inflation and the unemployment rate. Yale professor James Tobin and others argued that the social outcome could be improved by a more activist monetary and fiscal policy. Specifically, they contended that the unemployment rate could be lowered while only resulting in slightly higher inflation.

Pimco Bill Gross - Draghi Disappoint​s with Lack of ECB Policy Moves / Interest-Rates / ECB Interest Rates

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Gross, co-CIO of PIMCO, appeared on Bloomberg TV’s “In the Loop” with Betty Liu and said that Mario Draghi disappointed investors by not offering concrete policy steps: "we were hoping for, at least temporarily, some type of specific effort on the part of the central banks."

Gross also responded to Jeremy Siegel's comments on Bloomberg TV earlier today that Gross doesn't know economics by suggesting that he "hasn't even read my piece, let alone understood it."  Gross said that Siegel “belongs back in his Ivory tower.”

Euro-zone Quarantining PIIGS Against Catching Spanish Flu / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Greek crisis was merely the warm-up act for the main show: the default of Spain and its much-denied departure from the euro.

That departure will leave holders of Spanish bonds with IOUs in euros that will be paid interest in pesetas.

These bond-holders include French banks, German banks, and assorted pension funds. The owners of those institutions will take significant hits on their net worth.

Audit the Out of Control Fed, Restore “Free Markets for Free People” / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen will the Fed’s folly and madness come to an end? Perhaps next year, we’ll begin to see big changes at the Federal Reserve, including the sacking of Fed chief Ben Bernanke, and his henchmen of addicted money printers, who have tossed aside the notion of “Moral Hazard,” a long time ago, and instead, are engaging in “financial repression” in the bond markets, and the rigging of the stock market, much to the chagrin of believers in free markets.  However, in order for this shake-up at the Fed to occur, the Republican Party would have to beat the odds, by capturing the White House, and majorities in both chambers of Congress.

U.S.Fed Fails to Offer Stimulus, But Assures Support if Necessary / Interest-Rates / Economic Stimulus

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe two-day FOMC meeting concluded without any change in monetary policy. Expectations had ranged from a possible change in language to extend the exceptionally low interest rate period to 2015 from the current late 2014 stipulation to a reduction in interest on excess reserves or another round of purchases of long term assets. Hopes were not entirely dashed as the Fed expressed a strong willingness to provide monetary policy support if economic conditions weaken. The Fed’s message runs as follows:

LIBOR, Lies and Derivatives / Interest-Rates / Banksters

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThree weeks, ago, I wrote LIBOR was a criminal conspiracy from the start. An avalanche of articles have been written on LIBOR since, and I think an update is in order, which also gives me a chance to delve a little further into the bold statement in that title.

It's not that I'm a big fan of using terms like conspiracy, not at all, but then again, neither am I a fan of constantly being lied to.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?
Captain Renault: I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
– From the classic scene in Casablanca, made in 1942

The latest scandal du jour seems to be about what is now called LIBORgate. But is it a scandal or is it really just business as usual? And if we don’t know which it is, what does that say about how we organize the financial world, in which $300-800 trillion, give or take, is based on LIBOR? This is actually just the second verse of the old song about derivatives, which is a much larger market. Which of course is a problem that was not solved by Dodd-Frank and that has the potential to once again create true havoc with the markets, whereas LIBOR can only cost a few billion here and there. (Sarcasm intended.)

Uncovering the Darkest Secret of the Financial System / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs noted in yesterday’s piece concerning how and why Europe could bring about systemic risk, EU banks are likely leveraged at much, much more than 26 to 1.

Indeed, considering how leveraged and toxic US banks’ (especially the investment banks’) balance sheets became from the US housing bubble, the chart I showed you should give everyone pause when they consider the TRUE state of EU bank balance sheets.

US Treasury Bonds False Safe Haven, GOLD is the True Sanctuary / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs preface, consider that the USTreasury 10-year yield went below 1.4% this week. Some unenlightened celebrate the asset appreciation and point to a successful asset in performance in an otherwise dismal financial market. The Jackass said in the June 6th public article "USTBonds: Black Hole Dynamics" that such a success is a marquee billboard message of economic meltdown and systemic failure. As the rally continues, possibly the onliest rally outside of corn and soybeans in yet another disaster, people should focus on whether the systemic collapse will occur before the 10-yield hits 1.0% in my warning. Focus on four major points:

Horse-Whipping Interest Rates to Zero / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

Interest Rate Swaps and the Long End of the Interest Rate Curve

The rest of the world has been a net seller of U.S. Treasuries for a number of years now.  It has been the U.S. Treasury – exercising / implementing Imperialist U.S. monetary policy through the trading desks of the magnificent five [J.P. M., BofA, Citi, Goldy and MS] – IN THE LONG END OF THE INTEREST RATE CURVE by selling tens upon tens of Trillions of Interest Rate Swaps [IRS] – deals between the banks [payers of fixed] with the Exchange Stabilization Fund [ESF] brokered by the N.Y. Fed trading desk.  This is what has kept things “appearing somewhat normal” in the long end of the interest rate curve.

The Relationship Between High Total Public Debt and Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe relationship between high total public debt and interest rates is controversial (to some); and in today’s Outside the Box Van Hoisington and Dr. Lacy Hunt of Hoisington Investment Management tackle the subject head-on, in their “Quarterly Review and Outlook” for Q2 2012. They bring important new evidence to the debate, citing three academic studies (including an April 2012 paper coauthored by Rogoff and Reinhart) and an historical retrospective that focuses on the debt-disequilibrium panic years of 1873 and 1929 in the US and 1989 in Japan. In their view, the onus of responsibility for the “Panic of 2008” falls on the sometimes-slumping shoulders of the Federal Reserve, for making money and credit too easily available, and then “[failing] to use regulatory powers to check the unsound lending and the concomitant buildup of non-productive debt.”

The Libor Interest Rate Manipulation Scandal In Full Perspective / Interest-Rates / Market Manipulation

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe article about the Libor scandal, coauthored with Nomi Prins, received much attention, with Internet repostings, foreign translation, and video interviews. To further clarify the situation, this article brings to the forefront implications that might not be obvious to those without insider experience and knowledge.

The price of Treasury bonds is supported by the Federal Reserve’s large purchases. The Federal Reserve’s purchases are often misread as demand arising from a “flight to quality” due to concern about the EU sovereign debt problem and possible failure of the euro.

Joining him will be a blue-ribbon panel of other financial experts, including top market strategist Donald Coxe, legendary bond investor Lacy Hunt, and investing legends Doug Casey, Rick Rule, and Eric Sprott... and that's just for openers. Together, they'll help you understand where our politicized economy is today, where it's going, and how to profit from the whole mess.
