By: Bloomberg

Marc Faber: Still Predicting U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble Will Burst / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarc Faber, publisher of the Gloom, Boom and Doom report, spoke to Bloomberg Television's Sara Eisen and Erik Schatzker and said that investors have created a "bubble" in the "highest-quality" government bonds and should move to equities.

Faber said, "People feel so insecure that they say, 'I'd rather be in a Treasury in America with almost no yield or in Germany with negative yield and get my money back.' But it doesn't make them a good buy in the long term."

To Solve Europe's Debt Crisis You Must Solve Three Problems, Else its the End of Europe / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the interesting things about being in Hong Kong is that I get to see the weekend edition of the Financial Times 12 hours early. And the headlines were not all that pleasant. As I promised last week, we will cast our eyes to Europe and ponder what is in store for Europe for the year and the next five years. And what do we read on page 2? The "ECB raps revisions to draft a fiscal pact." Seems they feel there are too many loopholes, which will make the document meaningless … somewhat like the treaty they have now. And we further learn that "Greek default threat grows as talks falter." Seems there is a lack of agreement on how much of a haircut the investors ought to take, and the Greeks don't want to guarantee any future debt, just in case they need to default some more in the future. But they do want the €15 billion they need to keep the debt machine running for a few more months.

The U.S. Government Is Bankrupt / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Casey, Casey Research writes: Everyone knows that the US government is bankrupt and has been for many years. But I thought it might be instructive to see what its current cash-flow situation actually is. At least insofar as it's possible to get a clear picture.

As you know, the so-called Super Committee recently tried to come up with a plan to cut the deficit by $1.5 trillion and failed completely. To anyone who understands the nature of the political process, the failure was, of course, as predictable as it was shameful. What's even more shameful, though, is that the sought-after $1.5 trillion cut wasn't meant to apply to the annual budget but to the total budget of the next 10 years – a fact that is rarely mentioned.

Global Interest Rate Movements in 2011 / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: CentralBankNews

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf the central banks that net increased their interest rates, the average increase was 281 basis points (skewed up by Belarus; the average would be 185 excluding Belarus).  There were 18 central banks tightening by 100 or more basis points.  The outliers were Belarus 3450bps, Kenya 1200bps, and Uganda 1000bps.  Of those tightening rates, it was largely emerging and frontier markets, with inflation pressures running high on the back of rising food commodity prices and relatively buoyant economic conditions, particularly in the early part of the year.

Foreign Central Banks Dumping U.S. Treasury Bonds, Treasure From Treasuries / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: DeepCaster_LLC

 

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Holdings of U.S. Treasurys (sic) by foreign central banks has fallen by a record amount over the past four weeks according to the latest Federal Reserve data.

“The net $69 billion drop in Treasury holdings registered at the Fed by foreign official institutions comes as benchmark yields ended 2011 near record low levels…

“The decline in foreign holdings of Treasurys (sic) in recent weeks has not resulted in higher yields and lower prices because other investors have sought the safety of US debt.”

Math Vindicates S&P U.S. Debt Downgrade / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStandard and Poor’s has been greatly vilified for their call to lower the U.S. credit rating to AA+ from AAA.  The evidence, naysayers point to, for their justification of excoriating S&P is the performance of Treasuries since the downgrade occurred.  Indeed, U.S. debt yields have fallen and the dollar has increased in the five months after being stripped of AAA.

Global Government Bond Market Ponzi Scheme / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor whatever deeply embedded psychological reason – and your humble analyst is profoundly guilty – we humans seem prone to picking out a particular point in our space-time continuum (read: the New Year) to think about the future and new beginnings, rather than running the exercise every week or month. Maybe so much introspection and thinking is just too exhausting, so we only do it on an annual basis. I am deep in my reading as I research my annual forecast issue, which I will write Friday. I am thinking of being especially foolish (and anyone who makes predictions is foolish) and going out to a five-year time frame. It should be challenging.

2011: The Year 60 Minutes Misled Americans About Municipal Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn previous posts, I've mentioned serious fiscal problems that need to be addressed at state and local levels. This varies by region and some issues are potentially solvable.

I live in Illinois, which is ground zero for fraud, corruption, underfunded pension funds and general fiscal mismanagement. It's an example of one of the worst fiscal messes in the United States. This year Illinois hiked personal income taxes from 3% to 5%, and increased corporate taxes. We'll be slammed with hidden tax increases in utilities, purchases, and more. When now Mayor Rahm Emanuel left his post as White House Chief of Staff to run his election, the Chicago mayoral race centered partly around steps, including budget cuts, needed to solve Chicago's serious fiscal issues: See "Third Word America: Drowning in Debt and Chocking on Lies," Huffington Post, June 24, 2011, and 'Fast-Tracking to Anarchy;" August 25, 2010.

ECB Thinly Veiled Bailout / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ECB is borrowing U.S. Dollars from the Fed to bailout European banks. And that is in addition to the Long Term Refinancing Operation (LTRO). 

However, the "borrowing" is not called "borrowing."  It's called a "temporary U.S. dollar liquidity swap arrangement."  Yet it is really borrowing because it's going massively in one direction for the purpose of giving the ECB Dollars to lend to European banks, so the ECB can avoid lending more Euros. The ECB doesn't want to tarnish its "inflation fighting" reputation and further devalue the Euro. Instead, the Fed is taking billions of Euros as collateral for the Dollar swap.
