Bankrupt Greece Unlikely to Get Bailout Next Week / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ian_R_Campbell

It has now been reported that for logistical reasons it is very unlikely Greece will be able to draw down on further bailout funds before the week of November 19 at the earliest, notwithstanding the approval of the Greek Parliament on Wednesday of the austerity measures proposed last Monday. This is said to result from:

The ECB and Fed Are Worlds Apart / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe contrast in approach to central banking between the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) and the European Central Bank (ECB) is remarkable. ECB President Draghi has done more to lift market concerns with a targeted strategy than Bernanke's blunt attempts. In announcing the Outright Monetary Transactions (OMT) program, Draghi not only shored up market concerns, but also forced upon European policy makers a pathway for a fiscal framework and centralized fiscal oversight. From a currency perspective, such steps may serve to bolster the euro. In contrast, Bernanke appears willing to do all the heavy lifting on the economy while gridlock remains in Washington. We fear that the unintended consequences of such accommodative policies may undermine the U.S. dollar over the foreseeable future, and ultimately pose significant risks to the U.S. economy.

Euro-zone Debt Crisis Deepening as Greece Runs Out of Money on November 16th / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNick Beams writes: The eurozone financial crisis is set to deepen following this week’s release of debt projections for the Greek economy. Budget estimates show that instead of peaking at 167 percent of gross domestic product, as predicted last March when the so-called bailout package was put in place, the debt ratio will hit 189 percent this year, rising to 192 percent in 2014—well above the worst case scenarios of just eight months ago.

CENTRAL banks have fully uncorked the printing presses to meet the waves of insolvency set to STRIKE the banksters, public servants and the elites.

Why Government Debt Is Dragging on the U.S. Economy / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Dan Steinhart, Casey Research : The US has too much debt. This is no longer a controversial statement. Some may believe other problems are more urgent, or that we need to grow our way out rather than slash spending. But even the most spendthrift pundits acknowledge that the debt-to-GDP ratio of the US must decrease if we are to have a stable, prosperous economy.

Draghi's Plan to buy Sovereign Bonds Just Buying Time / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Platt, founder of BlueCrest Capital Management, told Bloomberg Television's Stephanie Ruhle on "Market Makers" today that "Europe has no credible plan for growth" and Draghi's plan to buy government bonds is a revised version of ESM and a way to buy time.

Platt also said that the euro is "interesting because it reminds me of the situation in the yen. You never would have expected the yen to be such a strong currency for the last 25 years."

Spain’s Back In Debt Crisis Mode… And Will Take The EU Down With It / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Spain’s Back In Debt Crisis Mode… And Will Take The EU Down With It

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I noted previous articles, Spain has essentially three options:

1)   Spain goes the “Greek route” of agreeing to austerity measures in exchange for bailouts (which will implode the economy).

2)   Prime Minister Rajoy refuses to impose austerity measures and is removed/ replaced by an EU technocrat who is pro-austerity measures (like Italy experienced last year)

Age of Debt Deleveraging / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Puru_Saxena

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world’s major economies are struggling and their private-sector is deleveraging (paying off debt).  If history is any guide, this deflationary process is likely to continue for several years.

You will recall that heading into the global financial crisis, corporations and households in the developed world were leveraged to the hilt.  During the pre-crisis era, debt was considered a birth right and for decades, the private-sector leveraged its balance-sheet.  Unfortunately, when the US housing market peaked and Lehman went bust, asset values plummeted but the liabilities remain unchanged.  Thus, for the first time in their lives, people in the developed world experienced the wrath of excessive leverage.

Negative Real Yields on U.S. Treasury Debt Highly Bullish for Gold / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Jesse

Today's 30 year Treasury auction was described as 'soft' as the cover rates were not as robust as yesterday's ten year. Ten-year notes started the day yielding 1.679% and were recently yielding 1.684%, while 30-year bonds were up 12/32 in price to yield 2.875%.

Personally I think that buying a 30 year bond yielding under 3 percent is insanity.

The Muni Bond Market Minefield / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Neeraj_Chaudhary

Municipal bonds have long been viewed as a staple asset class for conservative, income-seeking investors. "Munis," as they are known, are a large, liquid market of credit-rated securities that provide tax-exempt (from Federal taxes) income to millions of American investors. Towns, school districts, and other public sector authorities across the country have issued an estimated $3.7 trillion dollars worth of these bonds.

Spain is Beyond Repair, So is the United States / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSpain is beyond repair. This is also true of the United States. Following is a bottom-up view of the insatiable parasites clinging to the rump of the Spanish economy and how such gruesome imagery applies elsewhere.

A Bloomberg story on September 27, 2012, resembled many others since the mid-'oughts: "Spain's Boom-Era Building Gear Sold as Developers Cut Off." This does not need much explanation but a connection is offered: though QE3 is designed, and will (in cases) lift asset prices, gravity rather than levitation is the natural direction of assets.

U.S. Fed QE Infinity, What is it All about? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQE3, the Federal Reserve’s third round of quantitative easing, is so open-ended that it is being called QE Infinity. 

Doubts about its effectiveness are surfacing even on Wall Street.  The Financial Times reports:

Among the trading rooms and floors of Connecticut and Mayfair [in London], supposedly sophisticated money managers are raising big questions about QE3 — and whether, this time around, the Fed is not risking more than it can deliver.

The Genesis of the LIBOR Crisis / Interest-Rates / Banksters

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe roots of the LIBOR crisis can be found in the broad based sub-prime FRAUD in America circa 2000 - 2007.  The sub-prime fraud involved American investment banks securitizing [bundling] poor mortgage credits into “pools” – then working hand-in-hand with credit rating agencies like S & P and Moodys – having these pooled securities rated AAA.

In Q1/2007 American investment bank - Bear Stearns, a major player in this sub-prime securitization – had a number of these sub-prime pools FAIL to perform.

Why A Fed President Just Suggested Doubling QE3 / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans was interviewed on CNBC on Monday, and he indicated that he was in favor of continuing asset purchases at a rate of $85 billion per month all the way through 2013.  If approved by the rest of the Fed, this would have the effect of about doubling the size of "QE3", or Quantitative Easing Three, the massive Federal Reserve monetary creation and market intervention program announced only three weeks ago.
