Global Credit Crisis Contagion On the Verge Again / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleApparent disparities and idiosyncrasies between Western economies and China (at center of the emerging market model) continue to grow more profound, which will eventually end badly by popping the larger global credit bubble for good this time. This is of course not to say that our ambitious and greedy bankers and their crony politicians will disappear overnight, however if the serial bubbles in stocks, bonds, and anything that moves are popped, they will definitely have a great deal less currency to work with moving forward.

Bond Market, The Most Dangerous Bubble of All / Interest-Rates / International Bond Market

By: Martin_D_Weiss

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you agree that the tech bubble of the 1990s and the housing bubble of the 2000s were extreme, then you must not ignore a bubble that could be the most dangerous of all — grossly overvalued bonds.

That’s precisely the bubble we have right now! And in just a moment, I’ll tell you why it’s going to bust. But first, consider …

Junk Bonds Sending a Warning Signal to Stock Market / Interest-Rates / International Bond Market

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Junk bonds got issued at record rates in 2009 and again in 2010. And that pace has carried over into the New Year.

While the ability to raise money in the less-than-investment- grade bond market indicates that the market is getting back to where it used to be, there are reasons to be worried.

Moodys Warns U.S. May Get Credit Rating Downgrade / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Money_Morning

Don Miller writes: The United States' AAA credit rating may be at risk sooner than previously thought as the nation fails to deal with its growing debt, Moody's Investors Service warned last week.

Moody's said December's extension of the Bush-era tax cuts, combined with results from the November elections, may lead to further gridlock in Congress, increasing its doubts about the federal government's determination to reduce its debt.

U.S. Bond Prices Being Driven by Good News for a Change / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: John_Handbury

Treasury Bond prices usually flourish during bad times.  Joblessness, recessions, lack of spending, usually drive bond prices up because a stagnating economy usually means lower interest rates and disinflation.  These times are different however.  Over the last few months we have seen a large drawdown in bond prices without a whiff of inflation.    Why aren’t bond prices higher?

U.S. Bond Markets Deflation Whispers / Interest-Rates / Deflation

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an inflationary environment, the longer dated yields should be in a bull trend relative to the shorter dated yields – because the time value of money rises in periods of inflation. Conversely, when there is deflation then money in the future is worth less than cash in the hand.  Therefore the ratio should fall if deflation is being anticipated.

Debt and Deficits, “The New Humpty Dumpty” / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIrony is a wonderful thing sometimes. It has a habit of framing things exactly the way they need to be framed. Unfortunately, this is a knife that cuts both ways and irony sometimes points out awful realities. I am not a political animal per se, but I find it incredibly ironic how the avalanche of bad news on the deficit, Social Security, and essentially most of the things wrong with our economy was saved until after Tuesday’s SOTU speech. Make no mistake, this has happened before, and each time I find the timing to be absolutely incredible. It is very clear at least at this point that our leaders prefer to pay lip service to the idea of reducing the deficit rather than actually trying to rectify the situation. I say this because, with very few exceptions, the rhetoric centers around a silver bullet solution that will allow programs and spending to remain pretty much on the same path as what got us here, but at the same time, ‘fixing’ things.

No respite for German Bunds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe safe haven days of the Bund are clearly in the past. After the frenetic buying that peaked in August, the Bund has been on a clear trend lower and it hasn’t been alone.

But given the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis still remains a live issue, and it was that very crisis that sent the Bund and other Bond markets soaring on safe haven trading, what has changed?

S&P Slashes Japan's Credit Rating / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Standard & Poor's yesterday (Thursday) reduced Japan's long-term sovereign debt rating for the first time in nine years, saying Tokyo lacked a plan to deal with its mounting debt and persistent deflation.

The agency cut Japan's rating by one notch to AA minus, the fourth-highest level, citing the country's political gridlock for undermining efforts to reduce an $11 trillion (943 trillion yen) debt burden.

What Most People Don't Realize About The Fed's Superpowers / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince its creation in 1913, the primary intended role of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank has been that of protector. In theory, the central bank was bestowed with the power to shape monetary policy in a way that would keep both booms and busts in check. The two main tools at its disposal -- interest rates and money creation -- would provide a "ceiling of normalcy" above expansions AND a "net of safety" below contractions.

Should Congress Raise the U.S. Debt Ceiling? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt current rates of spending, the federal government may bump up against its debt limit as early as March. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warns that it will be "catastrophic to the economy" if Congress doesn't increase Uncle Sam's credit limit. Writers in conservative outlets call for Republicans to use this opportunity to extract significant spending cuts before extending the limit. And some extreme libertarians argue that the debt ceiling shouldn't be raised, because a government default would be a good thing for the American people.

FOMC Policy Statement - Status Quo is Also Noteworthy / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

The federal funds rate was left unchanged at 0%-0.25% as expected; it has held at this level since December 2008.  The Fed's plan to purchase $600 billion of Treasury securities has also been left in place along with the existing arrangement of reinvesting principal payments from its holdings of securities.  The vote was unanimous although four members of the voting panel were replaced for 2011.  Charles Plosser of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, Richard Fisher of the Dallas Fed, Charles Evans of the Chicago Fed and Narayana Kocherlakota of the Minneapolis Fed are the replacements.  Of these four voting members, Fisher and Plosser have been critics about the second round of quantitative easing that is currently underway.  They have held the opinion that the current stance of monetary accommodation carries with it inflationary consequences that would be damaging to the economy.  However, unlike President Hoenig of the Kansas Fed who shared this opinion and dissented at each meeting in 2010, these two members voted along with majority in today's meeting.

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.
