U.S. Treasury Bond Market Stabilises / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market stabilized last week.  Although the economic data schedule was rather busy, trading was more heavily influenced by the Treasury auctions and month end activity as the second tier fundamental news did not offer any major surprises.  While the volatility in the currency markets continued, the chop was more sideways and less directional.  Trading in stocks and bonds had the same directionless character.  The Treasury auctions were somewhat strange during this cycle.  Normally the shorter maturities are relatively well received and the longest tranche can hit some bumps.  Last week the 2 year auction was mediocre, the 5 year was sloppy but the 7 year bonds were very well received on Thursday setting up – as advertised - a seasonal bond rally into month end very nicely.

QE2 Sends U.S. Interest Rates Higher / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo if the latest reporting is to be believed, QE2 is a fait accompli.

The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday said the Federal Reserve plans to purchase “a few hundred billion dollars” worth of Treasuries over a period of “several months.” The Fed will stick largely with Treasury notes, rather than bills or bonds, with the lion’s share of the buying focused on securities with maturities between two and ten years.

Are the German Bund Bulls Finished? / Interest-Rates / International Bond Market

By: Seven_Days_Ahead

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDuring the Euro zone sovereign debt crisis the Bund was a strong safe-haven trade. This may seem paradoxical given the nature of the crisis: investors were worried about the solvency of several Euro zone governments, but sought shelter from government default in the Euro Bund.

PIMCO Bill Gross's Arrogant Endorsement of Fed's QE Policy / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is not often you see bond managers openly embrace Ponzi schemes, but that is exactly what Bill Gross did in his post Run Turkey, Run.

There’s another important day next week and it rather coincidentally occurs on Wednesday – the day after Election Day – when either the Donkeys or the Elephants will be celebrating a return to power and the continuation of partisan bickering no matter who is in charge. Wednesday is the day when the Fed will announce a renewed commitment to Quantitative Easing – a polite form disguise for “writing checks.” The market will be interested in the amount (perhaps as much as an initial $500 billion) as well as the targeted objective (perhaps a muddied version of “2% inflation or bust!”). The announcement, however, has been well telegraphed and the market’s reaction is likely to be subdued. More important will be the answer to the long-term question of “will it work?” and perhaps its associated twin “will it create a bond market bubble?”

U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble about to POP! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Claus_Vogt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial history shows that interest rates — and hence bond prices — have risen and fallen in long-term trends spanning decades. The following chart shows the 10-year Treasury since 1953.

As you can see, rates started rising shortly after the recession that ended in May 1954. In the second half of the 1960s this uptrend gathered speed. The market seemed to smell high inflation coming in the 1970s. And by the end of that decade and into 1980/81 rates soared. In fact, they peaked at slightly more than 15 percent — six times higher than the 1954 low!

Fed Builds Bubble in Junk Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Shedlock

The Fed's misguided policies have not done a thing for small businesses, the unemployment rate, or the real economy in general but they have induced a mad dash for yield in junk bonds, easily in a bubble state right now.

Bernanke's $4 Trillion Quantitative Easing Dilemma / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke is in a real fix. His quantitative easing (QE) program is designed to boost stock prices, lower bond yields, and weaken the dollar.

But the market has already priced all that in, so when he announces the start of the program on November 3, there's a good chance that things will either stay the same or head in the opposite direction. That's bad for Bernanke. Just imagine if the dollar strengthens just as the Fed chairman begins buying-up Treasuries to push the dollar down. He'll look pretty foolish. But that could happen because the dollar has already slipped nearly 7% since August and is overdue for a rebound.

Quantitative Easing (QE2): Who Gets the Fed’s Printed Money? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePart 2 of a 6 Part Video Series on Quantitative Easing: In Part 1: Quantitative Easing Targets Asset Prices, Not Bank Reserves, we discussed how Mr. Bernanke’s quantitative easing program is implemented via the Fed’s eighteen primary dealers, not traditional banks.

We do not know the size of the Fed’s program, nor do we know how the markets will react in the short-term. However, one thing we know with near certainty – a large quantity of newly printed money is going to flow from the Fed to the eighteen primary dealers. We also know a significant amount of the electronic greenbacks will flow from the primary dealers into the accounts of their clients.

Is the Fed Sorry It Promised QE2? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed has had stocks and gold spiking up since early September, and the dollar plunging, first on hints that it might consider providing another round of ‘quantitative easing’ if the economic recovery continued to worsen, and then practically promising it’s ready to do so.

So, Who Is Selling U.S. Treasury Bonds? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQE2 is coming, and it isn’t stocks the Fed buys in large quantities with its quantitative easing. It buys treasury bonds, in an effort to drive long-term interest rates down, which should drive the price of bonds up.

But the bond market hasn’t been as excited about the idea of all that buying as the stock market has been. In fact, just the opposite. Treasury bonds have been tumbling since late August.

Japan Quantitative Easing – A Curious Conundrum / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: David_Urban

As I mentioned in the Week in Review the move last week by the Bank of Japan to cut interest rates and enact a new quantitative easing program along with the lack of moves by Indonesia and Australia coupled with the immediate rally in equity markets looks increasingly like a coordinated global intervention to push up equity prices to help Japan.

Foreigners Buy $117 Billion of U.S. Treasury Bonds During August / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: OilPrice_Com

Dave Forest writes: The U.S. bond market is murky these days.

Yields have been plummeting. But some of the action is almost certainly due to the Federal Reserve once again buying Treasuries. Since August 19, the Fed has bought $40 billion in government bonds.

China Interest Rate Hike, Once Is Never Enough / Interest-Rates / China Economy

By: James_Pressler

In a move that caught international markets flatfooted, this morning the People's Bank of China (PBoC) tightened two key interest rates by 25 basis points, its first rate hike since December 2007. Few analysts expected a rate hike any time before Q1 2011, so such a sudden hike - that lacked any accompanying discussion or explanation - triggered a wave of uncertainty as everyone scrambled to explain the move. So, along with the mob, we offer our own interpretation of today's events.

U.S. Treasury and Junk Bonds, A Casino Royale? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Kieran_Osborne

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve’s (Fed) extraordinarily low interest rate policies have encouraged fixed income investors to take on evermore exposure to credit risks. With the global economic recovery looking more and more unstable with every new piece of economic data released, fixed income investors may be following a strategy akin to gambling at the roulette table. Investors may want to be careful not to let this transpire into a bad vacation in Vegas; we are concerned many investors may find themselves left out of pocket, hung-over with a bad taste in their mouth.

Further Limiting Your Risk with CDs or Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s now official: As I suggested last week, Social Security recipients are not getting any cost-of-living increase in 2011. This marks the second straight year of flat monthly checks.

That fact, combined with the paltry interest rates on many traditional income investments, is certainly causing a lot of people major angst right now.

What Can We Expect Next from the Bernanke Fed? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRoger Garrison writes: On October 15, Ben Bernanke spoke at the Boston Fed's conference, "Monetary Policy in a Low-Inflation Environment." His remarks were long and ponderous and consisted mostly of "Fedspeak" along with seeming excerpts from a typical intermediate-macroeconomics textbook. He rehashed the Fed's statutory mandate of maximum employment and price stability — which comes from the Keynes-inspired Full Employment Act of 1946.
