Spotlight on European Government Bonds; Current State of the Sovereign Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

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.

US Treasury Bonds BubbleOmics: Next Stop 2.890% for the 10-Year / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

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).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePorter Stansberry with Braden Copeland write: The International Monetary Fund estimates the 20 largest industrial nations (known as the G20) are on course to see their combined government debt exceed 100% of their combined GDP within three years.

Debts of this size simply cannot be financed, let alone repaid. The first step in this great unraveling is underway – the collapse of the euro.

The Bell Tolls for the U.S. Treasury Bond Market Investors / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is an old adage on Wall Street: no one rings a bell to signal a market top or bottom. Yet, I have found that bells do ring; it's just that few people know exactly what sound to listen for.

Perhaps the biggest and most liquid of all markets is for US government bonds. That market has been rallying for almost thirty years. The bull can be traced back to 1981, when Treasury bond yields peaked at about 15%. At that time, high inflation and a weakening dollar had justifiably squelched demand for Treasuries. Even the ultra-high interest rates were not enough to attract buyers.

Shorting U.S. Treasury Bonds Using TBT / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

How to Reduce the U.S. National Debt Without Raising Taxes or Cutting Spending / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Sekora writes: Discussions about deficits and debt reduction inevitably center on whether and how to reduce government spending or increase tax rates. Proponents of increasing taxes argue over what level tax rates should be increased to and for which segments of the population. Proponents of decreased spending debate which federal programs should be trimmed or eliminated altogether. But this choice is a classic false dichotomy. If we grow the economy enough, we won’t have to rely on massive tax hikes or spending cuts.

Quantitative Easing Unintended Consequences, Rising Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCorrect me if I'm wrong, but I seem to remember that one of the reasons for QE2 was to lower rates on the longer end of the US yield curve. Clearly, that has not happened? Today we look at come of the unintended consequences of monetary policy, turn our eyes briefly to consumer debt, and wonder about deflating incomes. There are a lot of very interesting things to cover. (This letter will print long, but there are a lot of graphs. Usual amount of copy.)

Chinese Take-Out Of The U.S. Economy, Debt Crisis Triggering Reserves Conversion into Gold and Silver / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chinese really must think the American strategy and behavior to be braindead and self-destructive. The US helped them assemble a manufacturing industry, replaced US income with debt, and finally faces the Grim Reaper in a national episode of systemic failure. The US leadership is as stupid and mindless as the population is driven by compulsive consumption over the cliff, as the nation faces ruin. The Jackass warning has been for five years that the Chinese experiment would end in tragedy, and that when a preponderance of USTreasury debt is owned by foreigners, especially a single foreign nation, the Untied States will lose its sovereignty.

U.S. Treasury Bond Interest Rates Rising Steeply / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

Contrary to Bernanke's goal of lowering interest rates by the QE II intervention, rates have been rising. In fact, they have begun to rise steeply as of late, with corresponding decline in bond prices. The following two charts for the 10-year Treasury bond illustrate the situation (top chart yield, bottom chart price). Better cash than bonds right now - or high quality, high yield growth US equities.

The Fed’s Final Days, The Temple Of Paper Money Is Under Seige / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2008, America suffered a massive economic heart attack. Its doctors, thought to be the world’s best, believed the US to be in good health, having recovered from a similar though smaller crisis in 2000.

But America hadn’t recovered. In fact, the Fed’s palliative for the 2000 crisis, i.e. lower interest rates, soon created an even larger crisis, i.e. the 2002-2006 US housing bubble whose collapse caused global credit markets to contract and investment banks to fall, necessitating government intervention on such a massive scale it led to today’s sovereign debt crisis as private losses were absorbed onto public balance sheets; and, now, in 2010, the crisis continues to fester and spread.

FOMC Policy Statement, Fed on Watch-and-Wait Mode / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Fed is essentially on a watch-and-wait mode.  The asset purchase plan of $600 billion of longer-term Treasury securities, known as QE2, was left intact and the program is set to expire in June 2011.  The Fed made small modifications to the November policy statement.  The pace of economic recovery is now seen as "insufficient to bring down unemployment" vs. a more amorphous description in November that output and employment conditions are "slow."  The Fed upgraded its view about consumer spending and depicted it as "increasing at a moderate pace," while in November, the Fed saw consumer spending as "increasing gradually."  The retail sales report of November (see discussion below) justifies this modification.  The Fed indicated in November that "housing starts continue to be depressed," which is now revised to read as the "housing sector continues to be depressed."

December 14 FOMC Meeting, Interest Rate Surprises Are Unlikely / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe last FOMC meeting for 2010 is likely to end without any surprises. The Fed is expected to maintain the current band (0%-25%) for the federal funds rate. There has been significant criticism about the $600 billion purchase of Treasury securities to provide an extra lift to economic activity and bring about a lower unemployment rate. The Fed projected lower interest rates and a depreciation of the dollar as a result of the second round of purchases of securities, termed as QE2. However, yields have risen since the announcement of QE2 on November 3. The 10-year Treasury note yield closed at 3.32% on December 10, the highest since June 10, 2010 (see Chart 1). Mortgage rates have risen close to 40bps since November 3 (see Chart 1).

Wall Street Gives Uncle Sam Too Much Credit / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Michael_Pento

Despite the fact that the S&P is up over 80% in the last 21 months, US financial firms are currently tripping over each other in their zeal to raise their S&P 500 and GDP targets for 2011. JPMorgan's chief US equities strategist, Thomas Lee, came out on December 3rd with a target of 1425 on the S&P for 2011, which would be a 15 percent gain. Barclays Capital last Thursday released a 1420 estimate. Not to be outdone, Goldman Sachs also recently released its forecast, and it sees a more-than-20 percent increase next year, to 1450. Meanwhile, PIMCO's idea of a "new normal" has translated into a 2011 GDP forecast raised from 2-2.5% to 3-3.5% due to "massive" government stimulus.
