Why the U.S. is Financing its Debt at the Short End of the Yield Curve / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

The Greatest Subprime A.R.M. of All is our Debt - It troubles me greatly to know that while the 30 year Treasury bond is yielding a mere 4.6%, we are not locking in that low rate for our newly issued debt. Any thinking American knows it would be best to take advantage of that ridiculously low yield and finance the Treasury’s borrowing at the long end of the curve.

How California Could Turn its Debt IOUs into Dollars / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEllen Brown writes: California has over $17 billion on deposit in banks that have refused to honor its IOUs, forcing legislators to accept crippling budget cuts. These austerity measures are unnecessary. If the state were to deposit its money in its own state-owned bank, it could have enough credit to solve its budget crisis with funds to spare.

Shorting U.S. Treasury Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond, TLT, TBT charts and technicals are urging me to get short the long end of the yield curve...looking for longer term rates to climb in the days ahead.  My near-term work in the ProShares UltraShort 20+ Year T-Bond ETF (NYSE: TBT) argues that the upmove off of the July lows at 48.01/05 exhibits very bullish form, in the aftermath of the completion of a major correction from the 6/10 high at 59.97 into the July lows.

Bernanke Revealing Statement on Accommodative Monetary Policy / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Brian_Bloom

In my article entitled “Case against Hyperinflation” dated June 30th 2009, I attempted to explain, in very broad brush terms, how the Fed might head hyperinflation off at the pass. It fell short of what Bernanke outlines in his article but, thankfully, not so short as to be an embarrassment to me J. Clearly, Bernanke believes he is on top of what he is doing. From a different perspective it might be a serious mistake to predicate one’s investment strategies on the base assumption that Bernanke is an intellectual hunchback who doesn’t understand what he is about.

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBad for the Goose, Worse for the Gander - Last week, major banks announced they would no longer offer cash for the IOU's written by the state of California. At the same time, China proposed that the U.S. dollar be replaced as the world's official reserve currency. Although seemingly unrelated, these two developments have at their root the same issue: uneasy creditors.

Irrelevant UK Base Interest Rate on Hold as Real Rates have Already Begun to Rise / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England is expected to keep UK interest rates on hold at 0.5% today for a fourth month. However the deep interest rate cuts have failed to lift the economy out of recession, hence the reason why the Bank of England has detonated the monetary policy equivalent of a nuclear bomb in the form of Quantitative Easing, printing £125 billion of electronic money primarily to monetize government debt to help finance the huge annual budget deficit that is mushrooming towards £180 billion for 2009 alone by artificially keeping longer term interest rates lower.
