The Great Global Debt Shift / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

If one were asked to describe the major global economic changes that have unfolded since the financial crisis began, a good starting place would be the massive shift of debt from the private to the public sector. Attempting to arrest a deepening crisis, governments all around the world have bailed out businesses and companies by transferring bad debts to the public books. Although these moves have provided some current stability (after all, governments are much less likely to default), the long-term consequences may be dire.

Bernanke's Golden Dismount / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

There can be little doubt that Fed Chairman Benjamin Bernanke has been a very, very good friend to gold investors. However, some of those who have benefited from his largesse now fear that the recent selloff in gold indicates an imminent end to Bernanke's monetary high-wire act. Most assume that a cessation of the Fed's stimulative efforts, if it were to occur, would spell the end of gold's bull run. But a closer reading of Bernanke's economic philosophy and the Fed's own recent history, shows that once central banker begins a strenuous routine starts, it is very hard, if not impossible, for them to dismount.

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week's letter is a result of two lengthy conversations I had today, which have me in a reflective mode.

There is a true Endgame here, and it may happen before we are ready.

At the same time, Moody's and Standard & Poor's warned the triple-A sovereign debt rating of the United States is in jeopardy of being downgraded if there continues to be a deterioration in the negative fundamentals of the United States, including the trillion-dollar federal-budget deficits President Obama has run in the last two years.

U.S. Interest Rates Federal Open Market Committee Meeting Preview / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on January 25-26 is most likely to close without any change in Fed policy.  The FOMC will reaffirm its plan to complete the $600 billion purchase of Treasury securities.  The policy statement should contain modifications that would reflect the nature of latest economic reports.  The strength in recent retail sales data, the sluggish labor market, and ongoing challenges of the housing market will feature in the policy statement.

Why the Fed Creates So Much Money / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the reasons behind the Federal Reserve creating so many trillions and trillions of dollars in new money is so the stock market will go up so that more taxes will be collected, and the bond market will go up so that more taxes will be collected (and less interest paid by issuers, too!), and the housing market will go up so that more taxes will be collected, and prices of everything will go up so that more taxes will be collected, so that massive, backbreaking, bankrupting deficit-spending by the government can continue going up.

Financial Chaos and Debt Default in the European Union / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBetween now and the end of the year, most likely in the fall, we’ll see major financial and economic problems in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Belgium, Spain and Italy. Those events will sorely test Germany, France, Holland and Austria.

Over and over we hear announcements from Brazil of trade wars. Brazil is deliberately reining in their currency, the real, due to its strength. They have imposed reserve requirements on domestic banks’ foreign exchange positions. These are taxes on investments and de facto currency controls. Such actions are very good moves that cause indirect higher gold prices.

Trichet and the ECB, Finalizing a Legacy / Interest-Rates / ECB Interest Rates

By: David_Urban

On October 31, 2011 the tenure of ECB President Trichet will come do an end.  In the coming months we will likely hear an increasing drumbeat of noise concerning who will replace Trichet and what policies the new leader of the ECB will embrace.  In the meantime, it is likely that Trichet will use the remaining months to tie up loose ends regarding the PIIGS and set a potential course for his successor.

Front-Running the Fed in the Treasury Market, There Is No Business Like Bond Business / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor some nine years I have been predicting that the economy is going to a recession morphing into a depression, using a purely theoretical argument. The essence of my argument is that the open market operations of the Fed cause a protracted decline in interest rates which is responsible for the hard-to-detect capital destruction affecting the financial sector no less than the productive sector. The immediate cause of the depression is the destruction of capital. The ultimate cause is the monetary policy of open market operations. The chain of causation is as follows.

U.S. Interest Rates, Economy, and the 1YR T-Bill / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen one monitors the various markets for a number of years they accumulate tidbits of technical/economic information mostly from others, and some on their own. It is this “some on their own” that can give an investor just enough of an edge to be ahead of the crowd. It is common knowledge that the FED raises and lowers short term interest rates to meet their full employment/low inflation mandate. We can generally observe the movement of their rate decisions by monitoring the 1YR t-bill rate, as illustrated by the 30 year chart below.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the best efforts by the American mainstream financial media, the eager PR division of the United States Dollar Ponzi Scheme, to paint the rosiest of rosy pictures for blindly optimistic readers, the stubborn image of a debt-swollen jobless behemoth economy slowly toppling persists. No matter how much U.S. departmental data is primped, polished, and primed, no amount of lipstick is going to transform this fat pig into a princess.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said he expected more municipal bankruptcies. In doing so, aligned himself with other critics of the muni-bond market, including analyst Meg Whitman and Money Morning's own Martin Hutchinson.

The Threat of the Irish
Has China Found a Miracle Business Cycle?

Last week, in the first part of my annual forecast, I suggested that 2011 would be better than Muddle Through, with GDP growth in the US north of 2.5%. World GDP growth should be even better. This week we look at what I see as the real downside risks to that prediction. Oddly enough, the risks are not in the US but on the other side of both our oceans, in Europe and China. Plus, we will visit a few other items, assuming we have space (Bernanke's recent speech just screams for some comments).

U.S. Bond Market Trades in Choppy Narrow Range / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market has settled into a relatively narrow but choppy trading range over the past 5 weeks.  The Treasury Bond auction cycle consisting of 3, 10 and 30 year tranches was well received, but the slightly disappointing 30 year auction appears to have prevented the market from breaking out of its recent narrow range.  Even the onslaught of disappointing economic news could not provide enough motivation for the market to break out to the upside.  Consequently, it looks like sideways action remains the path of least resistance.
