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!)

Japan The Sleeping Sovereign Debt Crisis Giant / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bryan_Rich

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the course of this year in my Money and Markets columns I’ve presented some compelling reasons why the euro zone and the euro were in for a life threatening crisis. And despite the general consensus along the way that the problems in Greece were contained and that dips in the euro should be bought, I maintained that the euro was in a no-win situation.

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!

Greek Debt Wildfire Engulfs the Euro in Flames, Boosts Gold / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt takes a lot more time to safely extinguish a fire than it does to start it. There’s an important lesson to be learned from a sad story of a homeowner, who had been burning debris in the backyard of her home, and thought she had put the fire out. She later found out the fire had spread and was burning grass underneath her deck porch, which soon engulfed her two-story brick frame home in flames.

The woman tried to put the fire out and called her 14-year-old son to help. Unable to extinguish the blaze, the woman finally called 911 for help. However, by the time fire officials arrived, the fire had burned most of the backyard and the home was fully engulfed in flames. The incident is a reminder of the importance of calling authorities early when fires occur, instead of trying to put them out your-self.

E.U. Greece Bailout Fails to Defuse the Ticking Global Debt Bomb / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ticking global debt bomb is in the in the spotlight again. Or, at least, it should be.

Greece's woes draw attention to the looming financing problems of other countries with a lot of debt. The strain of funding these requirements - the global debt bomb - is the greatest threat to global growth prospects. This is why central banks have flooded the financial system with money. It's the biggest and most critical financial battle of our time.

E.U. Greece. PIGS Bailout Means the Death of Capitalism / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWas it only last week I was expressing outrage that US taxpayers would have to pick up the check for Greek profligacy in the form of IMF guarantees? This morning we wake to up the sound of $250 BILLION in IMF guarantees for a European rescue fund, most of which will go to countries that are eventually (in my opinion) going to default. That is $50 billion in US taxpayer guarantees. Not sure what that translates into for Britain or Canada or Australia.

E.U. $1 Trillion Bailout, Detonates Nuclear Option of Printing Money to Monetize PIGS Debt / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst most in the mainstream press are occupied by the big numbers behind the Euro 720 billion / $1 trillion of bailout loans, and guarantees of the Eurozone PIGS, however the most important change announced was the European Central Banks intentions to buy the debt of Eurozone countries in effect adopting an open ended policy of Quantitative Easing or money printing to monetize the debt of bankrupting Eurozone countries much as the other central banks have been doing of the US, UK and Japan. Which means that the debt burden of the PIGS has been dumped onto mainly German tax payers therefore it's not surprising that European banks holding bankrupting PIGS debt have soared in price as the PIGS government debt they hold is now effectively being insured by the ECB.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Breaks Out of Trading Range / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market finally broke out of its 5 month trading range with some conviction.  The long bond future actually traded as high as 124½ before settling back to 122 even at the close on Friday.  While the fundamental data mostly exceeded expectations, the focus was on the jumpy, weak and nervous stock market which provided Treasuries with their traditional safe haven bid along with gold and the US Dollar.

European Debt Crisis, What’s Up With The PIGS? A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Charles_Maley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce again, the media has many reasons (in hindsight) for the demise in Greece, Portugal and Spain, and of course are now forecasting how the situation will be resolved. Personally, I think this could be the beginning of the end for the Euro. Greece is the first test, but other European countries have problems, and the entire European Union are now called into question. Remember, the original goal was to unite different economies into one powerful trading block, with the Euro currency hopefully replacing the Dollar as the world currency.

Last week the country asked the International Monetary Fund for support. The decision regarding funds allocation will be made based on the results of three-way negotiations between the Greek government, European Committee and the IMF.

Bang, Indeed!
The Center Cannot Hold
A Decent Employment Report

Last week we focused on the first half of a paper by the Bank of International Settlements, discussing what they characterized as the need for "Drastic measures ... to check the rapid growth of current and future liabilities of governments and reduce their adverse consequences for long-term growth and monetary stability." As I noted, you don't often see the term drastic measures in a staid economic paper from the BIS. This week we will look at the conclusion of that paper, and then turn our discussion to the fallout from the problems they discuss, initially in Europe but coming soon to a country near you.
