U.S. Treasury Bond Market Keeps Chugging Along as Stocks, Gold and Commodities Remain Under Pressure / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market just keeps chugging along very convincingly here through the seasonally negative month of May.  The stock market and commodities remained under pressure as Gold has joined the sell-off.  Looking at the Fed’s stock vs. 10 Year Note Relative Value Model, it has drastically swung from bonds 2.5 standard deviations cheap in March to stocks 2.6 standard deviations cheap last Thursday.  Looks like some of the short term moves are a bit ahead of themselves at this point, but the message is fairly clear: the low hanging fruit has been picked as far as the risk-trade is concerned; the character of the market is rapidly changing.

Sovereign Debt Crisis, America, PIIGS “R” Us too? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pollaro

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title of this essay may be a play on words but the facts are nothing of the sort.  Indeed, the facts suggest that the financial position of the U.S. government may not be all that much better than the financial position of the governments of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece or Spain, the so-called PIIGS.  In fact, given the agenda the Obama administration has set for America, one so far distinguished by ever larger government spending programs being financed by ever larger amounts of debt, the U.S. government may be well on its way to becoming PIIGS “R” Us.

U.S. Interest Rates Remain on Hold or Heading Higher? / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

Employment Is Turning the Corner
The Headwinds of Money Supply
Who Stole the Inflation?
The Fed Is On Hold
An Inverted Yield Curve?
LA, Vancouver, San Francisco, and a First
Often Wrong, Seldom in Doubt

Everywhere there are arguments that we are in a "V"-shaped recovery. And there are signs that in fact that is the case. Today we will look at some of those, and then take up the topic of when the Fed will raise rates. We open the case and look at the evidence. Is there enough to come to a real conviction? I think there is. (And at the end of the letter I mention two conferences I am speaking at in the next few months, in Vancouver and San Francisco.)

Government Budget Deficit Financing and Inflation / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI assume that you know how the banking system developed and how the banks could improve the services rendered by gold, by transferring assets from one individual to another individual in the books of the banks. When you study the development of the history of money you will discover that there were countries in which there were systems in which all the payments were made by transactions in the books of a bank, or of several banks. The individuals acquired an account by paying gold into this bank. There is a limited quantity of gold, so the payments which are made are limited. And it was possible to transfer gold from the account of one man to the account of another.

Global Debt Defaults Ahead as Keynesian's Race to Bankruptcy / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe euro is falling. It is at the lowest exchange rate to the dollar in four years.

Confidence in the euro is falling because it is becoming clear that the region's commercial bankers have made the same sorts of bad decisions that American commercial bankers made after 2000. They loaned money to debtors in Eastern Europe who will not be able to repay. These loans were collateralized by real estate, which rose. Real estate prices in Eastern Europe are now falling. The bubble has popped.

Debt Default ‘Deferral’ of Greece a Dangerous Precedent – Got Gold? / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf the implications of the recent Greek tragedy were not so serious it would have been seen more as a Greek comedy (of fiscal errors). In fact, however, to deploy another metaphor, Greece's sovereign debt is seen as the proverbial canary in the coal mine - a microcosm of the relentlessly growing sovereign debt that has taken much of Europe by storm and is threatening to spread to the U.S.

Will Euro Sovereign Debt Contagion Cross the Atlantic to the U.S.? / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Even after the massive rescue package [$750 billion] was delivered, confidence in the € seeped away and it weakened to $1.2320. With U.S. sovereign debt at unacceptable levels too, the debt fear 'contagion' cross the Atlantic? More than that, if bond values continue to drop will the lending banks to the debts issued survive. Can this happen in the States and will their banks be dragged into the crisis?

U.S. Treasury Bonds, Stay Long and Earn the Carry! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market did exactly what it was supposed to do last week: it pulled back to the break-out level at 120 and then it started moving higher again.  In spite of the massive bounce in stocks on Monday, the market remains quite nervous.  The long auction cycle included a record $16 Billion 30 year bonds on Thursday.  The market received the 3 year tranche very well, the 10 years were better than average and the long bond managed to drum up enough interest to keep key support at 120 intact.  While crude oil is leading commodities to the downside, gold continues to have a remarkable bid as it moved to new all time highs near 1250 on Friday.

ECB Abandons Independence and Prints $1Trilion to Prevent Euro-Zone Collapse / Interest-Rates / Euro-Zone

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope Throws a Hail Mary Pass
It's More Than Just Government Debt
The Grand Misallocation

In a 1975 playoff game, the Dallas Cowboys were nearly out of time and facing elimination from the playoffs, down 14-10 against a very good Minnesota Vikings team. The Cowboys future Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach had no very good options. He later said he dropped back to pass, closed his eyes and, as a good Catholic, said a Hail Mary and threw the ball as far as he could. Wide receiver Drew Pearson had to come back for the ball and, in a very controversial play, managed to catch the ball on his hip and stumble into the end zone. Angry Vikings fans threw trash onto the field, and one threw a whiskey bottle that knocked a referee out. After that play, all last-minute desperation passes became known as Hail Mary passes. (That was a very thrilling game to watch!)

U.S. Solvency Contingent on Low Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to the Department of Treasury’s Auction Staff, the U.S. auctioned $8.8 trillion in Bills, Notes and Bonds in fiscal year 2009. That number is greater than the entire publicly traded debt, which is currently $8.4 trillion. The reason for the enormous amount of debt issuance is due to our surging annual deficits and rollovers that must occur more frequently because of the government’s decision to issue debt on the short end of the yield curve.

EURO EXPERIMENT: E.U. Bullied into $1T Banking Bailout Bonanza / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike a chess game, the bankers called 'checkmate' against the EU political leaders on Friday May 5th, 2010. Two days later in an urgently called weekend meeting the EU finance ministers hurriedly announced the biggest bailout in history.

Most people take more than two days to buy a car, but the frightened EU officials were pressured into reacting before the Asian markets opened Sunday evening. This is eerily the same scenario we saw on the eve of the US $700B TARP ratification, the Bear Stearns takeover, Fannie /Freddie Conservatorship, AIG Bailout etc.. A coincidence - Yeh right!
