Greek Debt Crisis in Perspective / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe only solution for the European debt crisis is if the ECB prints a trillion Euros and does a “Fed” by buying up dodgy bonds, and then puts them in cold storage; if it doesn’t do that, soon, then something nasty is going to happen.

The negotiations as we speak are to find a piddling $8 billion to pay the salaries of the Greek public sector in October; it’s that close to the wall. Meanwhile the European political process is paralysed and the ECB does not have the power to do anything; Europe runs on consensus and rules, when the consensus disappears and the rules get broken, what’s left? Don’t expect a TARP or a TALF.

FOMC Engages in Operation Twist, Another Unconventional Step / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Fed left the federal funds rate unchanged, as expected, at 0.0-0.25%. The much awaited action called “Operation Twist” was part of the policy announcement. It was not an unanimous vote, three Fed Presidents -- Richard Fisher of Dallas, Narayana Kocherlakota of Minneapolis and Charles Plosser of Philadelphia – who are concerned about inflation dissented. These three Fed officials opposed the FOMC's August 9, 2011, decision that included an assurance of holding short-term interest rates near zero until mid-2013.

Has the FED Lost Control of Long End of the Yield Curve? We think so! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Capital3X

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is nothing more scary for the FED than to look at the 30 year yield sticky and stubborn. The only reason why FED would need to do a QE is to take control of 30 year yield. The short end is near zero and there is very little that can be done at this end. The 20/30 year yield now is where the absolute need if for a QE. The problem now is not whether the QE is of few billions or more. The FED has no option but to do: QE ad infinitum.

Central Banks Can Increase the Money Supply, Even If Banks Do Not Lend / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI. The Relation between Bank Credit and Money Growth

In today's fiat-money world, money is mostly produced through bank lending. Whenever a commercial bank provides credit to, say, consumers, firms, and government entities, it issues new money, thereby increasing the economy's money stock.

Economists from the Austrian School of economics call this kind of money production "money creation out of thin air," as the increase in money through bank circulation credit doesn't require the existence of real savings.

Fed Target Must be 5% Inflation / Interest-Rates / Inflation

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The Federal Reserve may engage in what has been mocked by investors as “the twist,” a bond buying program intended to reduce long-term borrowing costs by soaking up long-dated Treasury issues.  Of course, no matter the short-term goal, the real goal is to monetize the entirety of the US debt loads.

Details to Note Prior to Fed Announcement on September 21 / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

It is widely anticipated that the Fed will announce new monetary policy support following the 2-day FOMC meeting on September 21, 2011. The Fed is expected to put in place “Operation Twist” to bring down rates at the long-end by purchasing long term U.S. Treasury securities to replace U.S. Treasury securities of short maturities in its portfolio. A large percentage of the Fed’s holdings are of 1-5 years maturity (see Chart 1).

How Greece's Debt Issues Are Becoming a Global "Black Hole" / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: The extremely volatile markets of late stem in part from news suggesting Greece's debt issues have made a default imminent - creating a global black hole that's sucking in a growing number of other economies with it.

Default fears intensified last Friday when European finance ministers announced they would delay a decision on whether or not Greece was eligible for its sixth tranche of bailout funds. Greece was scheduled to get the next $11 billion (8 billion euros) installment of its $152.6 billion (110 billion euros) aid package by the end of September, but now must wait at least until October.

EU Bonds Rollover Debt with a Chinese Bailout / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial press is inundated with the most ominous reports of an EU meltdown. The downturn in economic activity and little growth all comes down to the unsustainability in servicing the debt obligations. Sovereign countries bailouts only pile on even more debt. European banks are tied to a Euro dominated currency, while the political union is anything but unified. Any serious student of European history inescapably concludes that the perennial ambition to orchestrate a single patchwork of diverse cultures and interests into a pan European brotherhood is always doomed. A consensus fraternity based upon socialistic economics feeds the inevitable default. However, never fear the banksters will not suffer, as the globalists prepare to use their next crisis, to consolidate their grip of world dominance.

The EU Debt Bubble: The Eurozone is Crumbling / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

There are those who make excuses for the Federal Reserve and for the European Central Bank as well. Both are controlled by the banking community and are only interested in enriching themselves. These central banks take their orders who own or control these central banks. In the case of the ECNB and other sovereign banks, they are responsible for the terrible state of finances in the euro zone. Yes, we know the banks, and sovereign bans made the loans or brought the bonds, but the ECB has a direct connection into these institutions. The ECB president Jean-Claude Trichet is supposed to be a very bright banker. If that is so, why did this happen on his watch? We will tell you why. It is because he serves the bankers and not the people. He is just another front man for the Illuminists, just as Mr. Bernanke is. Mr. Trichet has only 2-months to go and then he can rejoin his banker friends.

U.S. Treasury Yields Plummet, Yet Demand is Lacking / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

As yields on Greek debt soared to a record 117% for one-year notes, the US Treasury announced a new auction of 3-year notes with an entirely different response. 

While investors were busy watching Europe for any sign of life, a round of 3-year US Treasury debt escaped auction at a record low rate.  According to the Treasury, the notes sold with a yield of .334% per year, meaning investors will walk away with little more than $10 in 2014 for every $1,000 invested.

QE3 and Toxic Assets: The Fed's "Monetary Ammunition" / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bob_Chapman

Many people believe the Jackson Hole was a non-event, a failure and it was. QE 3 was not announced, as we predicted. We believe that was being saved for mid-September when the $300 billion rollover in Treasury securities is completed. Mr. Bernanke has failed in a number of respects, the most glaring being zero interest rates for 2-years and no housing recovery.
