U.S. Treasury Bonds vs Dow Jones 30 Yield Analysis / Interest-Rates / Investing 2010

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGovernment bonds across the globe are benefiting from concern about anemic economic growth, the risk of deflation in the US, and the Federal Reserve’s decision to reinvest maturing bonds and buy US Treasuries. Yields on Japanese, German, UK and US government bonds fell to fresh multi-month and, in some cases, all-time lows.

American companies are absolutely loaded with cash. Take Microsoft, for example. It has $35 billion in cash and only $6 billion in debt. Accountants would say Microsoft has a net cash position of $29 billion.

Quantitative Easing No Exit - Stage Left or Right / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Peter_Schiff

This week, national attention was fixated on JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater, whose bold, creative, and controversial exit strategy could revitalize his future prospects. Not nearly as noticed was the Federal Reserve's decision on Tuesday to avoid finding an exit strategy for its own never-ending career trap. Unfortunately, the Fed's choices affect our lives much more than Slater's.

QE2, Fed Policymakers Screw It Up Again! / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlbert Einstein famously defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. But apparently the message hasn’t gotten through to the folks in the Eccles Building in Washington. Because the Federal Reserve is at it again!

This week, policymakers met in D.C. and decided to fire up the printing presses. Led by “Helicopter Ben” Bernanke, they pledged to buy new Treasury securities whenever old Treasuries or mortgage securities matured or were paid off.

Hey DeLong! U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble Prices Do Not Justify Bubble Prices! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. government bond market is the last of the great asset bubbles.  We know this, first and foremost, because no one in any position of power in America is willing, and perhaps more precisely able, to enact the painful policies required to ever repay current/future obligations - and yet the market does not, as yet, seem to care.

Japanese Style Deflation Fear Strikes Global Bond Markets / Interest-Rates / Deflation

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US-economy has not experienced sustained deflation since the Great Depression of the 1930’s, when consumer prices fell 10% between 1929 and 1933. But Japan has been battling falling prices since 1995, – triggered by the bursting of the Nikkei-225 equity bubble, and a unrelenting slide in land prices. Central bankers and macro-economists from all corners of the earth have been studying Japan’s descent from its giddy economic prosperity in the 1980’s, and into the deflation trap in the 1990’s, that Tokyo’s financial warlords have still been unable to remedy.

Gold and U.S. Treasury and Mortgage Bonds Naked Shorts As Liquidity Machine / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe article of July 22nd on "Smoking Guns of USTreasury Monetization" hit more desks, raised more dust, and brought more attention than expected to the grand fraud in progress using USGovt debt securities. The glaring actions continue without any hint of legal prosecution but deep foreign resentment among creditors as publicity mounts. Nobody appreciates counterfeit of the instruments held in great volume as supposed savings. The only counterfeit of honorable origin is of Microsoft products, since mostly stolen and surely not the output of in-house innovation.

The central bank said in a separate statement that it will announce a purchasing schedule today and that its buying will be concentrated “in the two- to 10-year sector” of the maturity spectrum, though it will also buy other maturities as well as Treasury Inflation Protected Securities.

Impotent U.S. Fed 'Swings' Limp Appendage / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Bernanke and the other Fed governors know they are out of bullets, and that even if they had any bullets left, there would be nothing to shoot them at. So, the next best policy option on August 10, 2010 was for them to at least appear to be doing “something” to assure financial markets and institutional investors that they could rest (in peace?) in the secure knowledge that, because the Fed is doing “something” at least, there must still be something it can do to make the economy all better.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Continues to Power Ahead / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market continues to power ahead.  The long bond futures tested the 130 level for the first time in 20 months and look set for a slight breather heading into the long auction cycle next week.

While stock investors seem to be oblivious of the mounting evidence of a significant deflationary loss of economic momentum (or maybe they just choose to ignore it on purpose), the Federal Reserve will get its chance to vocalize its concerns following their Policy Meeting scheduled for next Tuesday.

Federal Reserve Magically Erasing Debts and Liabilities / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHossein Askari is a professor of international business and international affairs at George Washington University, and Noureddine Krichene is an economist with a PhD from UCLA, which I mention to establish their credentials, since some bozo from the Federal Reserve created a stir when he said, with a sniff of condescension and smugness, that nobody should comment about economics unless they have a PhD in economics from a “proper” university, because we unwashed huddled masses are “dangerous” and a “threat to society.”

Can the Fed Successfully Exit Liquidity Flood Policies ? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis recently interviewed macroeconomist Robert Hall for the June issue of its quarterly magazine, The Region. His words on the Federal Reserve's ability to enact an exit strategy to unwind its unconventional policies were clear and sure: "There are two branches to the exit strategy: There's paying interest on reserves, and there's reducing reserves back to normal levels. They're both completely safe, so it's a nonissue."

US Economic Outlook: Indebted to Death / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Stepek at MoneyWeek.com, talking about the “European bank stress tests” that were “a whitewash, of course” said that it kind of reminded him of “one of Gordon Brown’s budgets.”

My immediate reaction, of course, and speaking as a true American, is to ask, “Huh? Gordon who?” as a clever way of reminding these British guys that real Americans, like me, don’t know about anything, or care about anything, that is not about America and/or Americans and how it affects us, as Americans, but mostly me, personally, as an American.

Debt is Devouring Sovereign Nations, U.S. Deficit is being Monetized by the Fed / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile we wait, watch and listen, the Fed decides when the banks will be given the word to start lending to get the domestic economy back to neutral. Action is needed quickly because the world economy is quickly deteriorating, and the recovery is simply not happening, as the administration admits to a fiscal deficit of $1.4 trillion. That would be down from a deficit of $1.9 trillion in 2009. Our long-term estimate has been $1.6 to $2 trillion.
