The Federal Reserve Has Attempted to Corner the Credit Market / Interest-Rates / Market Manipulation

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDaniel Aaronson and Lee Markowitz write: During a market corner, a buyer accumulates an asset with the intention of driving the price higher without any regard for its true value.  Additionally, the buyer amasses such a large holding that market prices cannot remain elevated without continuous buying.  For example, when the Hunt Brothers cornered the silver market, silver rose from $11 per ounce in September 1979 to nearly $50 an ounce in January 1980.  Eventually, the Hunt Brothers stopped buying silver as they ran out of capital and the market for silver dried up.  As happens with all market corners, when the buyer disappeared from the market, the price of silver spiraled downward.  The Federal Reserve, knowingly or not, has cornered the credit market.

Impact of LIBOR Interest Rate Trends on Currencies / Interest-Rates / Forex Trading

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile FX trading seems to become increasingly bifurcated (broad USD weakness & broad JPY strength or vice versa), the unfolding trend remains a concerted move away from the QE currencies (USD, GBP) and into the commodity/high yielders as well as the EUR. Emerging talk on whether the US dollar has become the new low-yielding vehicle for carry trades financing equities, commodities and currencies vehicle highlights the difference between the USD and JPY carry trades.

Bailed Out Banks Not Lending, Sitting on Tax Payers Cash / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England has both pumped hundreds of billions of tax payer cash into the bankrupt banking sector and cut interest rates to near zero (0.5%) to enable the banks to have funds available to lend out to the wider economy. However the banks instead of lending this money out are in effect sitting on tax payer cash with a view to earning interest on the money at the Bank of England which is illustrated by a sharp drop in the interbank rate towards the base rate as the following graph illustrates.

Massive Relief for U.S. Homeowners and Trouble for the Banks / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA landmark ruling in a recent Kansas Supreme Court case may have given millions of distressed homeowners the legal wedge they need to avoid foreclosure. In Landmark National Bank v. Kesler, 2009 Kan. LEXIS 834, the Kansas Supreme Court held that a nominee company called MERS has no right or standing to bring an action for foreclosure. MERS is an acronym for Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, a private company that registers mortgages electronically and tracks changes in ownership.

Easy-Money Fed Fueling U.S. Dollar “Carry Trades” / Interest-Rates / US Dollar

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA fascinating thing just occurred in the global interest rate market: For the first time since 1993, it became cheaper to borrow dollars than Japanese yen! The three-month dollar-based London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, slumped to 0.292 percent, compared with the yen-based LIBOR rate of 0.352 percent.

The Looming Global Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Bob_Chapman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat do you do after you have zero interest rates and you have flooded the world with money and credit?

The answer is you attempt to fight off higher interest rates and see if you can dodge the inflation bubble that follows. The commitment for this current fiasco to save the world’s Illuminist banks has already caused an official debt responsibility for the US of more than $23 trillion or about 40% of world GDP. That is staggering and it is official. We wonder what the real figure is? It is also wise to remember that the Federal Reserve, and other reserve banks worldwide, all international, are responsible for the carnage we are witnessing.

Treasury Bond Market Bullish Sentiment, Circumstances Are Different / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you have been paying attention the last couple of weeks, I have been warming up to bonds. However, earlier in the year, I thought that Treasury yields would head higher (i.e., bonds lower), and that this would result in a secular trend change. In other words, we would be embarking on a long period of increasing yield pressures. This did not come to pass although yields on the 10 year Treasury bond did reach 4.0%. Despite this failed signal, Treasury yields still have the technical characteristics of an asset poised to undergo a secular trend change, and by secular, I mean lasting years. But not now.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Trade Higher on Weak Economy / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market traded mostly positive all week and followed the recent pattern of one ugly Friday alternating with one neutral Friday.  This last one actually managed to eke out a small gain.  The financial markets are shaping up to be a diverging tale of three themes.  On the one hand we have the stock markets around the world relentlessly grinding to new highs, while on the other hand the bond market refuses to buckle as it continues to retain a strong safe haven bid.  In the mean time, gold is also breaking out to the upside with some conviction.  The yellow metal managed to achieve its highest weekly closing level ever at $1007 per ounce.

In August of 2007 the corporate bond market cracked wide open. Although the S&P 500 made a new high in November, the corporate bond market didn't. It was the mother of all warning calls that most missed."

A Plan for the Resolution to the Insolvency of the United States Banking System / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mansoor_H_Khan

The core problem of the United States' banking system (and maybe the world's banking system) is not liquidity but insolvency.   The liabilities of the United States' banking system exceed the value of its  assets.   The issue is not only the toxic assets (toxic mortgage backed securities,  toxic commercial real estate loans,  sub-prime mortgages, alt-A loans, adjustable loans likely to go bust, increase in prime mortgage default rates, etc) but also off-balance sheet liabilities (such as expected huge unaccounted for future derivatives losses).
