Fed Interest Rate Hikes Lather. Rinse. Repeat / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Peter_Schiff

Stop me if you've heard this one before: A Fed official walks into a bar and says the economy is improving and rate hikes are appropriate. The patrons order another round to celebrate. Then disappointing data comes out, the high fives stop, and the Fed official ducks out the back...only to come back the next day saying the same thing. Anyone who pays even the smallest attention to the financial media has experienced versions of this joke dozens of times. Yet every time the gag gets underway, we raise our glasses and expect the punch line to be different. But it never is. Last week was just the latest re-telling.

Fed's Interest Rate Normalization Will Be Far From Normal / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

The Fed traditionally embarks on an interest rate tightening cycle when inflation has started to run hot. This decline in the purchasing power of the dollar will nearly always manifest itself in: above trend nominal GDP, rising long-term interest rates and a positively sloping yield curve. These prevailing conditions are all indications of a market that is battling inflation; and thus prompts the Fed to start playing catch up with the inflation curve.

Race to the Bottom Gaining Traction: Negative Interest Rates Amplify Currency Wars / Interest-Rates / Currency War

By: Sol_Palha

Ability is a poor man's wealth. M. Wren

If you had told individuals before 2009 that we would be living in a negative rate environment in the near future, most would have treated you like a lunatic that just escaped from Ward 12.  Fast forward a few years and viola, bankers all over the world are embracing negative rates.  China devalued the Yuan once again, adding further fuel to the already blazing fire.  The Fed will have no option but to lower rates and then Jump onto the negative rate bandwagon. Don’t listen to the nonsense the Fed has been mouthing for months that all is well. We can already see the all is good slogan breaking down to “it’s not as good as we thought" slogan; this will eventually change to “oh my God it’s darn right ugly out there” and we need to lower rates to prevent a catastrophe slogan.

The $6 TRILLION Corporate Debt Implosion Begins... / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Graham_Summers

The corporate bond market is a $6 trillion time bomb waiting to go off.

It took the US half a century to grow its corporate bond market to $3 trillion.

Thanks to the Fed implementing ZIRP and holding rates there for seven years, we’ve doubled the corporate bond market, adding another $3 trillion in corporate debt… since 2009.

10 Questions About our Broken Financial System / Interest-Rates / Financial Crisis 2016

By: DeviantInvestor

Bonds look like a bubble in search of a pin. What if global bonds are revalued lower to account for the following?

  1. Probability of repayment in a currency that will maintain its purchasing power for the lifetime of the bond.
  2. Probability of responsible fiscal management by the governments of the bond issuing countries.
  3. Probability of repayment without rolling over those bonds by creating EVEN MORE UNPAYABLE
  4. Actual positive yield.

“Debt, Not The Economy, Reaches Escape Velocity” With Graham Mehl / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2016

By: Andy_Sutton

One of the biggest buzz-terms of the falsetto, faux recovery has been ‘escape velocity’. If there are any NASA engineers left, they can correct me, but I believe the term was used in physics or perhaps rocket science to describe the velocity an object must reach to break the hold of the Earth’s gravity. And you think Economics has some formulas? I’d LOVE to see the one for the real escape velocity.

Getting back to the economic version of rocket science (don’t even tell me that isn’t funny), we have been hearing the term for the past several years. Ironically it started with the central banking crowdlthough they never quite told us what exactly the economy had to do to accelerate beyond the grasp of the ‘great recession’.

Billionaire Gross: Jubilee Debt Relief as Prelude to New Global Economic Order / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2016

By: Jeff_Berwick

Bill Gross just made headlines by explaining that Japan was bankrupt and its central bank would have to acquire the nation’s debt and then “forego repayment.”

What billionaire Gross is talking about here is a debt jubilee. And we’re not surprised. We’ve predicted this after all.  I’ve often said that Japan will be the first to fall.

The 5 Fatal Flaws of Trading / Interest-Rates / Learn to Trade

By: EWI

Close to ninety percent of all traders lose money. The remaining ten percent somehow manage to either break even or even turn a profit -- and more importantly, do it consistently. How do they do that?

That's an age-old question. While there is no magic formula, Elliott Wave International's own Jeffrey Kennedy has identified five fundamental flaws that, in his opinion, stop most traders from being consistently successful. We don't claim to have found The Holy Grail of trading here, but sometimes a single idea can change a person's life. Maybe you'll find one in Jeffrey's take on trading. We sincerely hope so.

Cash Holdings of Apple and Other Tech High Fliers Are A Massive Risk in This Debt Jubilee Era / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2016

By: Jeff_Berwick

Throw every “norm” out the window.  This Keynesian, central banking world has everything so distorted that nothing makes sense anymore.

There are currently more than $7 trillion in bonds, worldwide, offering a negative interest rate. Wrap your head around that!  People are actually paying trillions of dollars to give their money to mostly bankrupt governments with the promise they will receive less at a later date.

It just seems like human nature to ruin a good thing.

As much as I am a strong proponent of free market capitalism, and against complex regulations and central planning, I understand government’s role in all this.

Capitalism and democracy teamed up in the late 1700s to form the big bang in economics, or what I call “When Harry met Sally.”

How Stupid Do You Have To Be, Part 2: 100-Year Bonds / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2016

By: John_Rubino

“Of course there are true copper bottomed mistakes, like spelling the word “rabbit” with three m’s, or wearing a black bra under a white blouse, or, to make a more masculine example, starting a land war in Asia.” — John Cleese

We all make mistakes, but some are bigger than others. An example of a serious one that’s both potentially catastrophic and easily avoided is to lend money for long periods during a time of rising debt and financial instability. Who, for instance, would commit capital for 30 years to Italy by buying that country’s long-dated government bonds? “No one” is the sane answer, yet those bonds do find buyers.

The Fed Is Finally Coming Clean About Inflation / Interest-Rates / Inflation

By: Graham_Summers

For years the Fed has been lying about inflation.

There are many methods of doing this, but the simplest was to use a “measure” of inflation that did not actually measure inflation at all.

This is the famous Consumer Price Index of CPI. It is meant to measure inflation, but ignores obvious costs of living items like food and energy usage.
