QE2, Beware the Perils of its Success / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is only one difference between a bad economist and a good one: the bad economist confines himself to the visible effect; the good economist takes into account both the effect that can be seen and those effects that must be foreseen. … the bad economist pursues a small present good that will be followed by a great evil to come, while the good economist pursues a great good to come, at the risk of a small present evil. - Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

Ireland Debt Crisis Bailout For the Banks, Subjugation of the Irish People / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Philipp_Bagus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope is in turmoil once again. The sovereign-debt crisis threatens to spread from Ireland to Portugal and Spain. It all began with the financial crisis. Before the financial crisis, several governments of the eurozone, most notably those of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain (PIIGS), had been able to finance their deficits at artificially low interest rates. Some had accumulated unsustainable levels of public debts.

Can the Fed Become Insolvent? Should We Care? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn light of Bernanke's plans to purchase $600 billion of longer-term government debt, many academic economists are beginning to worry: Could the Federal Reserve itself become insolvent? In this article I'll explain these fears and I'll argue that the Fed, with its printing press, cannot really go bankrupt the way other corporations can.

Ireland E.U. IMF Bailout Loan 6.7% Interest Rate Shocker? Belgium Joins PIGIBS / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is widespread speculation in the mainstream press that Ireland's Euro 85 billion bailout loan could carry an interest rate as high as 7% with most suggesting 6.7%, which is far higher than the expected rate of 5% that Greece agreed to in May and currently averages at 5.2% and therefore represents an 33% premium and thus would place a far higher annual debt interest burden on Ireland.

Giving Thanks for the Bond Market Sell Off / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI don’t know about you, but I’m still stuffed from yesterday! I ate enough turkey to feed a small army, and that’s not even counting all the trimmings.

But frankly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanksgiving is a great time to get together with family, watch some football, eat well, and celebrate all we have to be thankful for. And believe me, there’s a lot … including the latest bond market sell off.

Debt Crisis Destabilises Irish Government, E.U. Scrambles to Prevent Contagion From Spreading / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Ireland's debt crisis has destabilized its government and is fueling speculation that the $118 billion (85 billion euros) bailout may not be enough to keep it from spreading to other Eurozone countries including Portugal, Spain and Italy.

Nervous financial markets yesterday (Tuesday) continued to suggest global investors lack confidence that some governments will be able to manage their debt and cast doubt on the European Union's (EU) ability to contain the crisis.

Bernanke Is Making the Global Currency & Debt Crisis Worse / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBud Conrad, Chief Economist, Casey Research writes: The Fed is a corrupt and powerful institution, and Chairman Bernanke is making the global crisis worse. His new speech given last week in Europe was terribly misguided and will upset markets as the Chinese and Germans won't ignore his challenges. Bernanke’s interpretations of the markets have been wrong since before he was appointed to head the Fed, and his actions are doing nothing but aggravating the situation.

Does the Fed Create Money? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

Certain deflationists have recently gone on record saying that the increase in the Fed's balance sheet is meaningless with regard to creating inflation because our central bank can't print money, it can only create bank reserves. The problem with their view is that it both disregards the definition of money and ignores the process of creating bank reserves.

Global Monetary Policy - Negligence, Ignorance or Fraud? / Interest-Rates / Global Financial System

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecovery? What recovery? With more money in circulation than ever before in history, Midas Letter Editor James West asks, "Where's all the money?" The government would have us believe a "recovery" is underway and that we're all firmly back on the road to prosperity. "A recovery is underway," says James, "but those elements of the global economy that are recovering aren't in the economic interests of most planetary citizens." In this Gold Report exclusive, James looks beyond media talking heads and rosy governmental economic forecasts to ponder the eventual consequences of a regulatory framework that is fractured and impotent.

U.S. Treasury Bond Yields Explode Higher, Opportunity to Buy 10 Year Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market sold off a little more last week.  Not only did the Treasury market sell off quite sharply over the past few months, but other sectors in the fixed income space got hit even harder.  It appears that the market has been de-sensitized to all the sovereign problems of the basket case European countries.  Financial markets just shrug nonchalantly when headlines of another Irish or Greek bail-out come across the tape.  The sector that was perhaps even uglier than the European PIIGS over the past couple of weeks were the US municipal bonds.  In our new cozy world, investors will need to start getting used to the idea that government bonds might not be as infallible or default proof as previously thought and priced.  Meanwhile stocks remain close to 2 standard deviations expensive to bonds according to the Fed model I follow.

Roubini being Roubini, Central Banks Have Mountains More Leverage Than Lehman or Bear Ever did / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the market on another of its rocket ships as every asset on earth is backstopped by a central banker or sovereign government (which is in turn backstopped by a central banker), Mr, Nouriel Roubini is not getting the same air time or rock star status as he had a few years ago. That said, he is always an interesting mind to listen to ... and since we share many thoughts of the future, of course I want to share ;) As Nouriel says - who is going to backstop the central banks? Mars? ;) (if you look at their balance sheets they have mountains more leverage than Lehman or Bear ever had - but no problemo I guess as we have full faith and trust in their Socrates like actions)

Higher Interest Rate Yields Impact on Gold, Metals and Other Commodities / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Every precious metals investor should be concerned about China raising its rates and rising yields.  Rising rates in one of the fastest growing economies will affect precious metals investors.  Changes in the rates affect stock prices.  China is leading the world and we can see the fears are profound as sell offs this week were much stronger that any of the relief rallies.  If China’s market corrects then the commodity market which was fueling the equity market could experience a severe correction.  It is a domino effect.
