Rising Interest Rates Reveal Debt Reality / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

The Fed's lucky streak of luring bond investors with low interest rates may be drawing to a close. Nevertheless, the extended period of low borrowing costs has bred a new breed of investor. To the bulls and bears, we can now add the ostriches - those who bury their heads in the sand of declining debt service ratios while refusing to face up to intractable levels of total US government debt. If these ostriches were to actually look at the numbers, they would realize that it is their investments which are made of sand.

Debt Bubble Chronicles: We Are Now Paying for the Destruction of the US Dollar and Economy… Literally / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Graham_Summers

We just hit another milestone in insanity.

I’ve written before that thanks to its QE lite and QE 2 programs, the Fed is now officially the single, largest owner of US debt. However, even that nonsense pales in comparison to the Fed’s latest accomplishment, that of owning over $1 TRILLION in US debt.

US Cities at Risk of Bankruptcy / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Submissions

PRESS TV writes: Next to the housing crisis, some economists say cities declaring bankruptcy is the biggest threat to the U.S. economy in 2011 More than 100 cities could go bust in the new year derailing the economy in America.

In Michigan, a small city called Hamtramck says it only has funds to operate until March first. City officials have slashed money for boarding up abandoned houses, cutting grass and no money has been set aside to plow snow from the streets.

Asset Speculation and Capital Destruction, The Cost Of 0% Money / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the early 1990 decade, the nation's maestros have promulgated the notion that cheap money is a beneficial factor for the sustenance of wealth, for economic development, for the standard of living, for the robust industries, in general for the American society. Nothing could be further from the truth, but even today the reckless US economists from the Keynesian Camp and their controllers from Wall Street have convinced the multitudes that cheap money is a good thing. Cheap money comes with a deadly ultimate cost. The inept professor occupying the US Federal Reserve Chairman post has gone on record claiming the US banking sector has a secret weapon in the Printing Pre$$ that it can use with zero cost, in its electronic form.

Key Technical Low for TLT U.S. Treasury Bonds ETF / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Based on my near-term as well as intermediate-term work, the iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treas Bond ETF (NYSE: TLT) established a very important technical low at 90.47 on Dec 15 off of the 109.34 high from Aug 25. That low was followed by a powerful upleg to 94.21 on Dec 20 that exhibited bullish form, which "warns" us that after the current pullback runs its course, an upside continuation rally should emerge that propels the TLT towards 99-100 next.

Long-Term U.S. Treasury Bonds, The Best Possible Investment? Think Again / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTREASURIES -- the very name conveys a thing that is secure, protected, and will appreciate over time. Otherwise, it'd be called something like "TRASHeries" or "Mattress Stuffers." Then, there's the official seal of the US Department of Treasury: its image of a scale and a key symbolize "balance" and "trust."

And, finally, there's the mainstream economic experts who have it on good authority that long-term bonds increase in value during financial instability and uncertainty.

Dangers and Opportunities in Muni Bond ETFs Crash / Interest-Rates / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Ron_Rowland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBonds of all kinds took a beating over the last few months — ever since Ben Bernanke began hinting he would launch another “quantitative easing” money-printing program.

Ben was true to his word. And the QE2 program was announced on November 3. Interest rates shot up in the following weeks. That was bad news both for individual bondholders and bond exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere are a few charts that show the current state of tension in regards to the European sovereign debt crisis. The charts also show why E-Bonds, the wet dream of Jean-Claude Juncker, is not going to happen.

Jean-Claude Juncker is President of the Euro Group and Prime Minister of Luxembourg (not to be confused with Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the ECB). Junker's plan, supported by the IMF is to combine the bonds of all the Eurozone countries into one entity, with a statement that E-bonds would end the crisis.

Bush Tax Cuts: How Investors Can Profit From the Compromise Tax Deal In 2011 / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: With a compromise agreement that extends the Bush tax cuts for two more years, the Obama administration has given investors what they wanted - but not what they needed.

The compromise tax deal was signed into law by U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday, and continues to draw fire from critics on both sides of the political aisle. The $858 billion tax package isn't paid for. In fact, it actually costs more than the controversial Obama stimulus plan that has been criticized for having little measurable impact - even as it caused the budget deficit and the U.S. debt burden to explode.

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA bubble is when for some reason, be it because of manipulation of markets for one person’s gain and another’s pain, the insanity of crowds, or addiction to debt; prices of some “thing” gets wildly out of synch with the fundamental utility value of the thing.

Then there is a marked difference between what, in Wall Street slang, you can sell something for to someone dumber than you, today (Market Value); and what can reasonably expect to be able to sell same the thing for to someone smarter than you, tomorrow (Other than Market Value).
