Hey DeLong! U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble Prices Do Not Justify Bubble Prices! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. government bond market is the last of the great asset bubbles.  We know this, first and foremost, because no one in any position of power in America is willing, and perhaps more precisely able, to enact the painful policies required to ever repay current/future obligations - and yet the market does not, as yet, seem to care.

Japanese Style Deflation Fear Strikes Global Bond Markets / Interest-Rates / Deflation

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US-economy has not experienced sustained deflation since the Great Depression of the 1930’s, when consumer prices fell 10% between 1929 and 1933. But Japan has been battling falling prices since 1995, – triggered by the bursting of the Nikkei-225 equity bubble, and a unrelenting slide in land prices. Central bankers and macro-economists from all corners of the earth have been studying Japan’s descent from its giddy economic prosperity in the 1980’s, and into the deflation trap in the 1990’s, that Tokyo’s financial warlords have still been unable to remedy.

Gold and U.S. Treasury and Mortgage Bonds Naked Shorts As Liquidity Machine / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe article of July 22nd on "Smoking Guns of USTreasury Monetization" hit more desks, raised more dust, and brought more attention than expected to the grand fraud in progress using USGovt debt securities. The glaring actions continue without any hint of legal prosecution but deep foreign resentment among creditors as publicity mounts. Nobody appreciates counterfeit of the instruments held in great volume as supposed savings. The only counterfeit of honorable origin is of Microsoft products, since mostly stolen and surely not the output of in-house innovation.

The central bank said in a separate statement that it will announce a purchasing schedule today and that its buying will be concentrated “in the two- to 10-year sector” of the maturity spectrum, though it will also buy other maturities as well as Treasury Inflation Protected Securities.

Impotent U.S. Fed 'Swings' Limp Appendage / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Bernanke and the other Fed governors know they are out of bullets, and that even if they had any bullets left, there would be nothing to shoot them at. So, the next best policy option on August 10, 2010 was for them to at least appear to be doing “something” to assure financial markets and institutional investors that they could rest (in peace?) in the secure knowledge that, because the Fed is doing “something” at least, there must still be something it can do to make the economy all better.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Continues to Power Ahead / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market continues to power ahead.  The long bond futures tested the 130 level for the first time in 20 months and look set for a slight breather heading into the long auction cycle next week.

While stock investors seem to be oblivious of the mounting evidence of a significant deflationary loss of economic momentum (or maybe they just choose to ignore it on purpose), the Federal Reserve will get its chance to vocalize its concerns following their Policy Meeting scheduled for next Tuesday.

Federal Reserve Magically Erasing Debts and Liabilities / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHossein Askari is a professor of international business and international affairs at George Washington University, and Noureddine Krichene is an economist with a PhD from UCLA, which I mention to establish their credentials, since some bozo from the Federal Reserve created a stir when he said, with a sniff of condescension and smugness, that nobody should comment about economics unless they have a PhD in economics from a “proper” university, because we unwashed huddled masses are “dangerous” and a “threat to society.”

Can the Fed Successfully Exit Liquidity Flood Policies ? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis recently interviewed macroeconomist Robert Hall for the June issue of its quarterly magazine, The Region. His words on the Federal Reserve's ability to enact an exit strategy to unwind its unconventional policies were clear and sure: "There are two branches to the exit strategy: There's paying interest on reserves, and there's reducing reserves back to normal levels. They're both completely safe, so it's a nonissue."

US Economic Outlook: Indebted to Death / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Stepek at MoneyWeek.com, talking about the “European bank stress tests” that were “a whitewash, of course” said that it kind of reminded him of “one of Gordon Brown’s budgets.”

My immediate reaction, of course, and speaking as a true American, is to ask, “Huh? Gordon who?” as a clever way of reminding these British guys that real Americans, like me, don’t know about anything, or care about anything, that is not about America and/or Americans and how it affects us, as Americans, but mostly me, personally, as an American.

Debt is Devouring Sovereign Nations, U.S. Deficit is being Monetized by the Fed / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile we wait, watch and listen, the Fed decides when the banks will be given the word to start lending to get the domestic economy back to neutral. Action is needed quickly because the world economy is quickly deteriorating, and the recovery is simply not happening, as the administration admits to a fiscal deficit of $1.4 trillion. That would be down from a deficit of $1.9 trillion in 2009. Our long-term estimate has been $1.6 to $2 trillion.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf ten people who hear the same story or speech, each one might understand it differently. Perhaps, only one of them will understand it correctly. On July 21st, Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke was speaking in riddles, as central bankers are apt to do, while delivering his testimony before Congress. Each word that’s uttered by the Fed chief is scrutinized by anxious speculators, who try to interpret the message correctly, before quickly placing bets in the marketplace.

The objective of the test, in the CEBS’s dry words, was to “provide policy information for assessing the resilience of the EU banking system to possible adverse economic developments and to assess the ability of banks ( … ) to absorb possible shocks on credit and market risks, including sovereign risks.”

Investors Beware of Municipal Bonds as Defaults Soar / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Of the speculative excesses that misguided monetary policy and a prolonged recession has caused, the one that poses the most danger to investor wealth is the financial bubble in state and local municipal bonds.

Municipal bonds - usually referred to as "munis" - are very popular portfolio plays because of tax advantages that, in effect, enhance their rates of return. There's also an allure because of their local nature: Investors can invest in specific bond issues that provided the money for projects such as schools, highways, bridges, hospitals or housing that actually affects the community in which the investor lives. That makes them a very tangible investment.

The Unlimited Power of Suppressing the Interest Rate / Interest-Rates / Economic Theory

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnder today's fiat-money regimes, central banks, as a rule, control short-term interest rates. They do so by setting the interest rates on short-term loans extended to commercial banks (typically with maturities of one day, one week, two weeks, or one month).

Should the Fed Pump Even More Money? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Frank_Shostak

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome Fed officials and various commentators, such as Professor Paul Krugman, are of the view that the US central bank should be ready to consider additional steps to boost the US economy in the wake of a visible softening in key economic data. For instance, the yearly rate of growth of retail sales, after climbing to 8.5% in March, have fallen to 4.8% in June. The ISM manufacturing purchasing manager's index (PMI) fell to 56.2 last month from 59.7 in May.
