It’s Time To Dump U.S. Treasury Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst let’s make sure we understand the basics of bonds.

Bonds are a form of debt. When a company or a government needs to borrow money it can borrow from banks and pay interest on the loan, or it can borrow from investors by issuing bonds and paying interest on the bonds.

By: Washingtons_Blog

Coordinated Central Bank Action Temporary Fix, Not Panacea for Europe’s Sovereign Debt Woes / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Federal Reserve, Bank of Canada, Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, and Swiss National Bank announced coordinated actions to provide liquidity support to the global financial system. Today’s announcement involves a reduction in cost at which banks in foreign countries can borrow dollars from their central banks. The central banks lowered the price on the existing temporary U.S. dollar liquidity swap line by 50 basis points such that the new rate will be U.S. dollar over night indexed swap (OIS) rate plus 50 bps instead of U.S. dollar OIS rate plus 100 bps. In addition, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, and the Swiss National Bank will continue to offer three-month tenders until further notice. This arrangement will be effective as of December 5, 2011 and will remain in place until February 1, 2013.

Central Banks Tackling Liquidity, Policy, Geopol and Solvency / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Today's coordinated central bank liquidity injections coincide with liquidity concerns (USD LIBOR nearing the highs of June 2010 at 0.53%); policy concerns (EFSF & austerity deadlock), geopolitical concerns (storming of UK Embassy in Tehran) and solvency concerns as signaled by implicit (voluntary) default from Greece.

Perpetual Q.E. Without The Billboard, Hyper Monetary Inflation / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Federal Reserve has fooled a lot of people into believing that the grand monetary pump and debt monetization project has been put on hold. The only thing that changed was their talking publicly about it. The money press has been working to the limit, never stopped. The discussion has been kept quiet, but the machinery still makes a lot of shrill noise. The proof is not movement of lips by central bankers, but the data from the monetary aggregate. The data is compelling in calling them out. The conclusion to reach is that Quantitative Easing has become the norm, the foundation policy, the emergency action to prevent implosion of the US banking system. Hyper monetary inflation is the New Normal.

Deleveraging is Over — It’s Time to Cut the U.S. Budget Deficit / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Colin_Twiggs

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS commercial bank loans and leases bottomed in April 2011, after shrinking more than $1 trillion in the previous two years. The annual rate-of-change has now recovered to positive territory, relieving downward pressure on asset prices, including stocks and real estate. Deleveraging has come to an end and is only likely to resume if the economy suffers further financial shocks.

ECB Expected to Unleash QE Money Printing after Launching of Euro-Bonds / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHardly a week goes by, without a major summit between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, trying to devise another clever scheme to save the Euro. Yet after 1-½ years of trying to contain the wildfire, - the Euro-zone's debt crisis is more dangerous than ever. The collapse of Greece's €360-billion bond market, now trading at 26% of face value, has triggered contagion sales from periphery of the Euro-zone - Greece, Ireland and Portugal, and into the next upper tier of the Euro-zone, namely, the bond markets of Spain and Italy, which together owe €3-trillion of debt.

When Even Germany Fails, Europe's Inverted Yield Curves / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAngela Merkel is leading the call for a rule change, a rewiring of the basic treaty that binds the EU. But is it both too much and too late? The market action suggests that time is indeed running out, and so we’ll look at the likely consequences. Then I glance over the other way and take notice of news out of China that may be of import. Plus a few links for your weekend listening “pleasure.” There is lots to cover, so let’s get started.

Has the Fed Run Out of Ammo? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

IS THIS a sign the Federal Reserve has run out of ammo?

Run Eurozone Banking System and Debt Markets has Started / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI remain in "awe" of the amazing arrogance of politicians and news writers who simply cannot take "no" for answer no matter how many times it is spelled out. The horrendous "eurobond" idea simply will not go away, even though Merkel and the German supreme court buried it long ago.

Even if Merkel was willing to give in on the idea, Finland and Austria wouldn't, and more importantly neither would the German supreme court.

What is Good for EU is Bad for Germany? Euro-zone Debt Crisis Intermarket Views / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Capital3X

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat was good for EU was always bad for Germany and what was good for Germany was bad for other EU countries. This could not have been more pronounced than yesterday Nov 23 2011 as Germany yields rose 11.3% and now are up another 4% for the day as Bond markets take a disliking to the German paper or rather the attitude. But what is interesting is that as the German yields rise, Italy and France continue to be falling in terms of spread. Is this why they say :Germany is the crux of the problem?

Big Banks, Big Governments, Big Debts, Let the Sucker Go Down / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConclusion: Europe is in bad shape. This is hedge fund manager Kyle Bass's assessment of the situation in Europe. He stated this in a rousing interview on the BBC's TV network. Here is the segment.

He made two crucial points – points that stock market investors are ignoring. First, over the last nine years, there has been an increase of world debt from $80 trillion to $210 trillion. These numbers are staggering. Global debt over the last nine years has grown at 12% per year, while GDP has grown at 4% per year.

Manipulated U.S. Interest Rates Seesaw Gold Prices / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: John_Browne

This week, world attention finally shifted away from debt problems in Europe to the unresolved and worsening debt crisis here in the United States. The Congressional Super Committee, which had been created over the summer to postpone making tough cuts, chose to avoid responsibility itself. In so doing, the Committee has followed the path of least resistance and maximum irresponsibility. Given the likely after-effects, the outcome should be judged as criminal dereliction of duty. It should now be crystal clear to even the most casual observer that a solution to the U.S. debt crisis will not come from within, but will be imposed, perhaps brutally, from without.

David Cameron Says UK Plan to Cut Debt is Failing / Interest-Rates / UK Debt

  • Greece is obvious enough and a government collapsed over it.

  • Portugal is obvious enough and a government collapsed over it.

Greece High Flying Drachma / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe worst-case scenario for Greece, should it be unable to secure further bailouts, might be that it would have to live within its means. Presently, spending only the money coming in is considered unbearably brutal. If Greece could only leave the euro, it could install its own printing press, inflating its sorrows away. Any economist will object: it’s complicated. But it isn’t: Greece could introduce a high-flying New Drachma, quite literally.

Italy Proves Simplest Reform Most Difficult to Pass / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

Never mind Berlusconi's resignation.  The story coming from the European Debt Crisis is hardly fixated around one leader of one country.  Instead, the biggest story should be that even the most simple measures of government reform continue to be the most impossible to pass.
