Citigroup Breakup Speculation Sends Credit Default Risk Soaring / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been saying for over a year that Citigroup would not survive in one piece. That option is looking increasingly likely as the Citigroup Board Weigh Options .

Citigroup Inc.'s board meets today to discuss the bank's options after Chief Executive Officer Vikram Pandit's efforts to rebuild investor confidence failed to halt the stock's descent to a 15-year low, a person with knowledge of the matter said.

U.S. Economy Reflation Challenge and LIBOR Deceptive Manipulation / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA major challenge looms large on the immediate horizon. The US Economy must be reflated in order to avoid collapse. Debts have become a crippling factor. Liquidation of speculative trades coincides with economic retreat, and hedge funds are under attack by their creditors (largely Wall Street firms) while major companies shed workers by the tens of thousands. When asked about economic prospects, a standard answer lately of mine has been to observe important signals not of recession but of potential disintegration.

Economic Forecast, Peering into a Debt Ridden Future / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Mick_Phoenix

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to the weekly report. This week we look at some longer term indicators that will help identify when a turning point in the economy has arrived and why you should cancel Christmas, or at least go back to its traditional meaning, forgoing the pointless consumerism that surrounds it.

Before we start, you may have wondered (or not) why the weekly report wasn't around. I have spent the past 3 weeks laying out the groundwork for an attempt to peer into the longer term future. Subscribers have seen all 3 articles, culminating in the new scenario. I have released the first 2 articles to the public, the final part will also be released but not for awhile yet.

Paulson's Blunders as Debt Securitization Market Remains Frozen / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHenry Paulson's time at Treasury has been one pratfall after another. Even so, on Tuesday he managed to out-due himself. Paulson held a "surprise" press conference where he announced that the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) wouldn't be used to buy troubled assets after all.    Instead, the money will used to bail out insurance giant AIG, provide extra capital for the banks to hoard, and now (this is new part) give money to "nonbank financial institutions, like insurers and specialty-finance companies" so they can lend to credit-worthy consumers. (Isn't that why we gave money to the banks?)

How Low Will the Fed Funds U.S. Interest Rates Go / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Hans_Wagner

On Wednesday October 29th, the Federal Reserve lowered the Fed Funds rate by 50 basis points to 1.0%. This comes on top of an earlier rate reduction on October 8, 2008 of 50 basis points. The rate is now at the level former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan kept during 2003 and 2004. This raises the question can and should the Fed lower rates further?

US Treasury Bonds Default Avoidance Means Dollar Death / Interest-Rates / Fiat Currency

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLIQUIDATION & USTBOND SUPPORT - The two main factors pushing up the US Dollar have been liquidation of speculative trades funded by it, and redemption of credit derivatives paid in it. These are not signs of any inherent investment in the US Economy itself, but rather its liquidation. Evidence abounds of severe deterioration within the United States, a collapse of confidence, a fall in business investment, ruin in retail demand, an avalanche of job loss, and a spread of corporate breakdown beyond the financial sector. Demands for nationalization have begun outside the financial sector in a wave certain to grow in strength and breadth.

Credit Crisis Eases as Interbank Rates Hit Multi-year Lows / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough signs of easing credit strains are manifested in multi-year lows in interbank rates, the market turmoil has exasperated the already shaky cash situation of US auto manufacturers, retailers and shippers, forcing fresh waves of nation-wide layoffs, which would only feed off the negative loop from rising employment, falling consumption, lower earnings and eroding bank credit. Consequently, JPY retains the last word over the USD, while both low yielding currencies dominate dealing flows against European and antipodean FX as Asian and European markets are mired in prolonged downside, failing to break Mondays sell-off in the US.

Deep Interest Rate Cuts to Treat the Threat of Economy Turmoil / Interest-Rates / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Regent_Markets

Last week the Bank of England hit the headlines with an unexpected 1.5% rate cut. The move was largely pre meditated as a shock tactic to boost the ailing UK economy ahead of the all important Christmas period. Spreading the cut over a number of months would have had much less of an impact as it can take many months for the benefits of a rate cut to filter down to consumers. This is especially the case now with banks being slow to pass on cuts to customers.

Bank of England Plays Interest Rate Catch-up as Sterling Suffers / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England's shocker 150-bp cut to 3.00% (lowest level since 1955) against expectations of 50-bp cut is the biggest rate cut since the central bank acquired operation independence 11 years ago. The Swiss National Bank also surprised with an unscheduled 50-bp rate cut to 1.75%. The European Central Bank stuck with a widely expected 50-bp cut to 3.25%. ECB president JC Trichet says the bank does not rule out further rate cuts and cannot rule out sharp decline in inflation next year.

US Treasury Bonds to be Hit by $500 Billion Quarterly Flood / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The U.S. Treasury Department announced Nov. 3 that it intended to borrow a record $550 billion in the fourth quarter. That represents a staggering $408 billion increase over Treasury's borrowing estimate from early August and includes $260 billion for the recapitalization of U.S. banks.

Make no mistake about it: There will be enough U.S. Treasury bonds to choke on, as the government tries to finance this debt.
