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.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article(Reuters: 18th. January 2011) -: “EU finance ministers agreed on Tuesday they wanted tougher stress tests for the region's banks to restore confidence in the bloc's financial system, but remained locked in dispute over how strict they should be.

"We discussed bank stress tests ... and we are really agreed that the new stress tests should include more banks," said German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble.

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.

Financial Meltdown 2011 Fast Approaching / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Midas_Letter

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.

By: Money_Morning

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.

"There have been six or seven municipal bankruptcies already," Dimon said Jan. 10 at JPMorgan's annual healthcare conference. "I think unfortunately you will see more."

European Debt Crisis Thinking the Unthinkable, The Threat of the Irish / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

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.

The Symbolic U.S. Debt Ceiling / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDemocratic politics relies on deception. Without deception of the voters on a comprehensive scale, there could be no politics above the local level, where people know the deceivers personally and are therefore less easy to fool.

Basic to deception are symbols. Symbols serve politicians in much the same way as a red cape serves a matador.

Europe's Tragic Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the root of the current crisis in Europe are the actions of the European Central Bank. As Philipp Bagus explains in his new book, The Tragedy of the Euro, only a realization of the true costs the euro has imposed on the continent in the past can shed light on the path to future recovery.

European member states, the European Central Bank (ECB), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have pledged upward of €200 billion in bailout funds to prevent the turmoil from spreading. This is a large funding drain on an already-dangerous EU fiscal situation.

He was the Iraqi minister of information who kept pledging that the U.S. was being routed and our troops were nowhere near Baghdad … even as they were marching through the streets.

Federal Debt of the United States - Q and A (Part II) / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article[Part I, question 1-3] published on Jan 11, 2011.

4.  Will Congress entertain not raising the statutory debt limit?

Congress will increase the statutory debt limit prior to the deadline.  There is not even an inkling of doubt about this eventuality.  But, unfavorable posturing by politicians, prior to taking the appropriate action, is nearly certain and tentative market concern will prevail.  The terms of the deal the Republicans will strike to raise the debt limit is the source of uncertainty not whether they will raise the borrowing limit.  The Treasury Department estimates that the national debt will hit the statutory limit between March 31 and May 16.  In the meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Geithner has indicated that the Treasury could take "exceptional actions" to delay the deadline by suspending the sale of state and local government securities, which would buy time for a few weeks.
