U.S. Treasury 10 Year Bonds Bubble At 2% Yield, US Nominal GDP Growth Heading Down Towards 0% / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI’m a little slow, but perhaps someone can tell me what happened to the crowd who were jumping up and down screaming that US Treasuries were a bubble when the yield was 3.7%? If that was a bubble in 2009 and 2010 then 2.0% has to be an UBER-BUBBLE so you would think those guys would be having foaming-at-the mouth fits by now, I don’t know what happened to them, perhaps they all got sore throats?

Wall Street Bailout: Too Big To Collect? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: EconMatters

In light of the recent S&P downgrade of the U.S. sovereign credit rating, the nation suddenly looks more dire financially than before the downgrade ( (at least psychologically, as the country still has the ability to borrow at its pre-downgrade low interest rates.)  So it would make tracking down Wall Street bailout money still outstanding a good start to reclaim some of the lost treasure.

The Zero Interest Rate Market Fix is In / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Peter_Schiff

This week's wild actions on Wall Street should serve as a stark reminder that few investors have any clue as to what is really going on beneath the surface of America's troubled economy. But this week did bring startling clarity on at least one front. In its August policy statement the Federal Reserve took the highly unusual step of putting a specific time frame for the continuation of its near zero interest rate policy.

Fed's Extension of Low Interest Rates For Another Two Years Will Deliver Damaging Inflation / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: With little ammo left in its arsenal, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) yesterday (Tuesday) was unable to offer jittery markets anything more than a two-year extension of the Fed's low interest rates.

Instead of promising to keep rates at their low 0% to 0.25% level for an "extended period" as it has in its past several meetings, the FOMC said it would maintain those rates "at least through mid-2013."

Why a U.S. Debt Default Will Be a Good Thing / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Now that Standard & Poor's has finally slashed its U.S. credit rating, it's more apparent than ever that a U.S. default is imminent.

So if you're at all panicked by S&P's decision to downgrade the country's top-tier credit rating - and the resultant freefall in U.S. stock prices - brace yourself: It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
But make no mistake, it will get better.

Why the Yield Curve is Steepening / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Investors know that the yield curve can be used to forecast market movements.  When the difference in yield between short-dated debt and long-dated debt grows or shrinks, the next major move is a bearish or bullish signal for risk-related investments.

Now the yield curve is steepening significantly, but this time, the steepening of the yield curve shows indecision in lending, not indecision in investing.

China Downgrades U.S. Treasury Bonds to A+, Is Anybody Listening? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf the big-3 credit rating agencies, only the S&P rating agency had the courage and fortitude to speak the truth, about the severe deterioration of America’s financial status. S&P shocked the political establishment in Washington, by following through with its threat to downgrade US Treasury debt to AA+ on the evening of August 5th. S&P added that the US Treasury debt could be downgraded further, if the crooked and inept politicians in Washington haven’t taken any meaningful moves to cut the size of its mounting debt.

The Fed Holds Federal Funds Rate Unchanged Until Mid-2013, Also Leaves Door Open For More / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

The one-day FOMC meeting concluded with an unchanged federal funds rate, no surprises here.  In light of a string of recent weak economic reports a downgrade of its economic outlook was also not a surprise.  The FOMC now sees “downsides risks the economic outlook” as having increased compared with its assessment in June.  The Fed depicted labor market conditions to have “deteriorated,” household spending to have “flattened out,” the housing sector as languishing in a “depressed” state and the supply chain disruptions due to the natural disaster in Japan explaining only part of the economic slowdown.

Trend-Ending Pattern in U.S. Treasury TBTs / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

Purely from a near-term pattern perspective, the most recent down-leg in the ProShares UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury (TBT) from 28.43 to this morning's low at 26.69 appears to be carving out a falling wedge formation, which usually is a "trend-ending" pattern -- in this case, a down-trend ending pattern.

S&P’s Downgrade of U.S. Sovereign Debt – Some People Actually Pay Them for these Opinions? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleS&P stated the obvious after the U.S. markets closed on August 5 – the projected growth in U.S. public debt is on a long-term unsustainable path. Rather than paying S&P for this opinion, all you need to do is look at some past CBO projections and you would have arrived at the same opinion years ago. For example, in December 2007, CBO published the chart immediately below showing its projections of U.S. public debt held by the public as a percent of nominal GDP under two scenarios. The first scenario, the “extended-baseline” scenario, assumed that the federal spending and revenue budgetary legislation that was on the books as fiscal 2007 would prevail over the next 75 years.

S&P U.S.Debt Downgrade, Don't Shoot the Messenger / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't shoot the messenger. The downgrade of U.S. government debt by S&P is the result of policies pursued over many years that rely on the U.S. being the world's reserve currency. Policy makers have forgotten that the status must be earned; it's not a birthright.
