The Bernanke Treasury Bond Market Put / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Peter_Navarro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to Market Edge: “After four weeks of impressive gains, stocks took a breather last week as both the DJIA and the NASDAQ ended the period with minor losses. The DJIA started the week with a 48.22 point (-0.4%) loss which was just the fifth losing session in September. Traders bought the dips throughout the week as the DJIA saw triple digit intra-day swings on both Tuesday and Thursday. Despite several disappointing economic reports, traders kept a bullish outlook throughout the week. For the period, the Dow lost 30 points (-0.3%) to close at 10829, snapping its four week win streak.&r

QE2 Money Printing, Why This Time Is Different / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bryan_Rich

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the Fed’s most recent meeting, everyone seems to have an opinion about another round of extraordinary monetary stimulus and the economic and market reactions such a move could leave in its wake.

Many believe “this time is different” … words that tend to have a very poor track record of coming true.

Irish Financial Crisis Worsens, Peter Sutherland and Ireland’s Sovereign Wealth Fund / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Christopher_Quigley

Last week, on “black Thursday” the Irish government in essence finally nationalized Allied Irish Bank. In response to the horrific national financial picture painted by Mr. Brian Lenihan, Ireland’s finance minister, Peter Sutherland, former Irish attorney general, hit the media road. Mr. Sutherland’s mantra was similar to that previously presented by his acolyte Mr. Honohan (head of the Irish Central Bank). This mantra stated that though the figures were lamentable they were “manageable.”

Regime Uncertainty and Treasury Bond Yields / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Robert_Higgs

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRegime uncertainty has gained increasing recognition as the current economic troubles have persisted with little or no improvement since the economy reached a cyclical trough early in 2009. As described in my 1997 paper, regime uncertainty pertains to the likelihood that investors' private property rights in their capital and the income it yields will be attenuated further by government action.

How Bar Chart Patterns Signal High-probability Trade Setups / Interest-Rates / Learn to Trade

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's a little known joke among the trading community that goes like this: "A trader walks into a bar... pattern: 'Ouch!' "

Fact is, if you don't know what you're doing, price bar analysis can be a bit "painful." Finding a discernable pattern in their grouping can feel like finding a hair in a hay stack.

U.S. Debt Options of Default or Hyperinflation / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big financial myth-buster of the week is that the alleged deleveraging of the US consumer has in fact been a giant myth. According to the Wall Street Journal, if you account for defaults, US consumers have only pared down their debts by an annual rate of 0.8% since mid-2008.

Could Debtflation Cause Gold's Big Sell Off? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Editor, The Casey Report writes: We recently received the following comment in our Q&A Knowledge Base.

Investors should be prepared to sell gold as either increased inflation expectations or doubts around debt sustainability force a sharp increase in US Treasury bond yields. Simply put, in an environment of high real interest rates, the allure of gold could disappear as quickly as it did in the early 1980s when Paul Volcker took control of the Federal Reserve.

The Risks of Buying U.S. Treasury Bond Funds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA number of us here at Weiss have been warning you about the dangers of buying bonds in this ultra-low-interest-rate environment, especially longer-dated U.S. Treasuries.

But as I recently told my Dad’s Income Portfolio subscribers, I think mainstream investors are still ignoring the risks they’re taking with bonds, particularly when it comes to fixed-income mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.

Bank of England Confirms Policy of Stealing Savers Wealth via Negative Real Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Deputy Governor of the Bank of England Charlie Bean effectively told savers to forget about receiving inflation beating interest rates and therefore should seek to spend their savings to boost the economy. The BoE's strategy continues to transfer wealth from savers to borrowers, with more than £20 billion transferred to date by means of negative real interest rates which typically pay savers half the rate of inflation CPI (3.1%) and 1/3rd the rate of the more recognised RPI inflation rate (4.7%) with the trend not relenting as rates continue to be cut all the way towards the bank base rate of just 0.5%.

Leveraging Junk Debt Off the Charts / Interest-Rates / US Debt

Fed Money Printing a Definition of Insanity, Doing the Same Thing and Expecting a Different Result / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week, Federal Reserve officials did it. They jumped the shark. Crossed the Rubicon. Bought a ticket on the express train to financial Never Never Land. Whatever you want to call it.

I say that because Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and the rest of the members of the Federal Open Market Committee opened the door to a new round of quantitative easing, or “QE2.” Specifically, they said (with the important passages bolded by me):

If ever the twain should meet, very bad things would happen. This is because of the disparate natures of government, on the one hand, and the central bank, on the other.

Checking around all I could find on long term Gov't Bond rates was at the St. Louis FED. Could not find anything elsewhere.
