Derivatives, the One Market the Fed Hopes You Won’t Find Out About / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we celebrate year three of the Great Financial Crisis with the first official bailout of an entire country (Greece), I’m still astounded and the complete and utter lack of coverage the underlying cause of this Crisis has received. 

We’ve had tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of articles and research reports have been written about the Crisis, and yet I would wager less than 1% of them actually bother talking about what caused it, let alone how the various efforts to stop it have in fact FAILED to address the key issues.

Watching U.S. Treasury Bonds TBT and TLT / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's a new month, therefore, it must be time to switch my position on Treasury bonds.

Before getting to the technicals on Treasury bonds, let me state why I am interested in and why I write so much about Treasury bonds. In one word, it is diversification. After all, they move slowly (most of the time), and they don't have the pizazz of some hot stock. Treasury bonds are one asset that remains negatively correlated to the equity market. Other traditional portfolio diversifiers, like commodities, emerging market ETF's and REIT's, have become highly correlated to US equities, and they just aren't doing the job they used to of smoothing out a portfolio's returns.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBrace yourself for one of the greatest interest-rate surges in decades — beginning first in the long-term Treasury markets … later spreading to shorter term Treasuries … and ultimately enveloping nearly every loan, debt, credit, and money market instrument on the planet.

Protect Your Wealth From Exploding Debt as States Implode / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Sean_Brodrick

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world is breathing a sigh of relief now that the financial crisis in Greece is “over.” Yeah, right. Greece’s financial misdeeds — the country has racked up a lot of debts it can’t pay — will probably come back to haunt Europe, and soon.

But we in America shouldn’t be too smug, because U.S. states have their own money problems, many of them worse than anything facing Greece — and the problems at home are starting to erupt!

Where Are Mortgage Interest Rates Headed And Why? / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we look at two brief essays for your Outside the Box. The first is my friend Barry Habib talking to us about where mortgage rates are headed. Barry gives us a very simple, but logical analysis on why rates are headed up. Then we jump to Spencer Jakab writing in the Financial Times about the problems in the municipal markets. Seems we may be under funded on our public pensions by about $3.5 trillion. As a tease to his column:

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Alert: This Should Scare The Heck Out of All of Us Right Now / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mario_Cavolo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI remember a few years back when in fact, I knew nothing about "bonds" and the word confused me. I'll save you that ignorance and suffering real quickly here; A government bond is a low risk loan and it pays you a steady low interest rate, for example, such as a 10 year U.S. Treasury Bond; for 10 years, you'll receive a yield, for example of, 3% per year and your money is regarded as being in the safest possible place it could be.

EXTEND & PRETEND: U.S. High Yield Debt Hitting the Maturity Wall! / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow long can the government continue to extend & pretend? How long can public policy endlessly ‘kick-the-can’ down the road without addressing the underlying causes? Such a critical point is often academically referred to as a ‘Tipping Point’ or what newsletter writer John Mauldin refers to as a ‘Finger of Instability’.  I am more pragmatic and as an investor, who is forced to call the timing, I refer to it as the Maturity Wall.

Why U.S. Treasury Stock Sales are Irrelevant to Monetary Policy / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

This week, the US Treasury will begin to unwind its position in Citigroup stock, which it purchased as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program that began in 2008 to rescue failing banks.  While some claim this move will reduce the money stock available in the economy, the program is unlikely to have any impact on the money supply and inflation.

Week of U.S. Treasury Bond Failures / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Shaily

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe week of March 21-26, 2010 will be remembered for the worst week for Bond auctions. Yields on 10 year shot up to levels seen in June 2009. 10-year notes touched the highest levels since June amid heightened concerns about the government’s ability to finance its deficits and as investors turn to seeking out higher yields in other asset classes.

Higher U.S. Treasury Bond Yields, Lower Equities? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the longest while, my mind set has been to expect higher yields accompanied by higher equity prices. After all, wouldn't higher yields be a sign that the economy is expanding and on the track to recovery? Or to put the relationship between bonds and equity prices in another light: if the equity markets would ever sell off, wouldn't bonds catch a bid as there is a flight to safety? But the technicals have me rethinking these relationships. Is it possible that we could have higher yields and lower equities?
