The Emperor Has No Credit / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Justice_Litle

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs political leaders forsake the few shreds of credibility they have left, at least one observer is willing to state the obvious: If credit is clothing, the emperor goes bare.

As the global financial crisis marches on, the world's leaders face a growing problem: The utter loss of not just credit, but credibility.

Gold Illusory Bubble and the Debt Bubble End Game / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the end-game began, gold was $35 per ounce. Today, gold is $1200.
When the end-game is over, gold will be far higher.

Midway through 2010 we are approaching the end of the end-game, the resolution of the monetary imbalances that began in 1971. For more than 2500 years, gold was money: but, in 1971 that changed. After 1971, money was no longer connected to gold. For the first time in history, money had no intrinsic value

U.S. Treasury Bonds Safe Haven Could Sink / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy David Galland, Managing Editor, The Casey Report writes: This morning I read an interesting story in Soundings magazine. It recounted the final voyage of the S.S. Morro Castle, purportedly one of the safest ships afloat back in 1934 when it regularly transported revelers on junkets between New York and Havana. Then, on the night of September 8, a series of unfortunate events occurred that ended with the ship washing up on the New Jersey shore the next day, close to half of its 300 or so passengers dead.

Europe’s Banking Crisis: Latvia’s Third Option / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Europe’s banking crisis deepens, Greece’s and Spain’s fiscal crisis spreads throughout Europe and the US economy stalls, most discussions of how to stabilize national finances assume that only two options are available: “internal devaluation” – shrinking the economy by cutting public spending; or outright devaluation of the currency (for countries that have not yet joined the euro, such as Eastern Europe).

State of the European Banking System / Interest-Rates / Euro-Zone

By: STRATFOR

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSummary - In the last six months, the eurozone has faced its biggest economic challenge to date — one sparked by the Greek debt crisis which has migrated to the rest of the monetary union. But well before the sovereign debt crisis, Europe was facing a full-blown banking crisis that did not seem any closer to being resolved than when it began in late 2008. With investors and markets focused on European governments' debt problems, the banking issues have largely been ignored. However, the sovereign debt crisis and banking crisis have become intertwined and could feed off each other in the near future.

The Case For U.S. Treasury Bonds Rally / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the economy softening and the Federal Reserve unable to provide a positive catalyst in the form of lower rates, the bond market has taken up of the slack producing lower yields. For example, mortgage rates have dropped over the past month enticing homeowners to refinance. It may not clear the glut of homes on the market or get us back to the old days of your house as an ATM machine, but lower rates do help. This appears to be a trend that will continue especially since Washington and the Fed no longer have the political will to expand the deficit.

Fed Audit Failure Lends Credence to QE Rumors / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Just last week, Congress had a critical piece of legislation before it.  Congress, through House bill HR 1207, could pass the bill in its entirety with a simple majority vote, and it would be included in the Financial reform overhaul bill which is currently being pushed through Congress.  Should the audit bill have been added to the financial reform legislation, upon passage, the books at the Federal Reserve would be opened for audit by the GAO – at which point every citizen, politician, and investor would know within six months the extent of the actions taken by the Fed over the past 97 years of pure secrecy.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the beginning of May, Euribor has traded in a clearly defined sideways pattern. Our analysis of this contract had broadly been that it had little room to rally further due to the economic recovery clearly underway, but no reason to turn into a bear market yet since that recovery was still too fragile.

Municipal Bonds Crisis, I Get A Pat On the Back From Warren Buffett / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in February 2010 ago, I wrote an article titled, The Municipal Bond Crisis is About to Begin. The main points presented in that piece were all based on simple common sense. The were:

  1. Most state governments are broke or in the process of going broke
  2. Tax receipts were falling (so less money for state coffers)
  3. Muni bonds would collapse as governments chose to default rather than honor their payments

Eurozone and U.S. LIBOR Interbank Interest Rates Divergence / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Tale of Two Cities - New York vs. Frankfurt - Chart 1 shows the recent behavior of the 3-month interbank loan rates in U.S. dollars and euros. Both in dollar and euro terms, these interest rates began drifting up in the second half of April as the Greek, Portugal and Spain (GPS) sovereign debt challenges came to the fore. If GPS were to default on its sovereign debt, this would have an adverse impact on some European banks. These potential losses for European banks caused interbank lending to "tighten up," thereby driving up interbank loan rates.
