U.S. Treasuries: Worse than the US Dollar! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat's right. You read it correctly. Now why would I say something that even most “experts” would laugh at? Because I want to point out once again how so many out there are in the dark, even the so-called experts; you remember, the guys who missed this entire meltdown. Of course, now with so many banks in a dangerous position, I've seen many advisers change face and jump on the doom bandwagon.

US Treasury Bonds Remain Range Bound / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury market closed the week with slightly higher yields after a rally attempt that fizzled on Friday. With energy trading settling down somewhat – on the crude oil front anyways, the bond market started focusing on other news to drive the trading activity this past week. Earnings season on the stock side made for choppy trading along with continued problems in the financial sector. In spite of more grim news on the earnings front and a list of bankruptcy candidates in the financial sector that is multiple pages long, stocks started the week in relatively decent shape.

Bank of England Hawkish on UK Interest Rates Despite Slowing Economy / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Victoria_Marklew

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe relentless stream of negative economic news out of the UK has the headline writers dredging up the old specter of stagflation - a "stagnant" economy with rising inflation. While the UK isn't at the point of recession yet, and there is reason to suppose that the headline inflation rate will start to ease come year's end, the outlook is certainly deteriorating. All told, it was no surprise when the Bank of England's (BoE) nine-member Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) left the repo rate unchanged at 5.0% on July 10.

Evidence of the US Banking System Teetering on the Brink of Collapse / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1. Paulson appears on Face The Nation and says "Our banking system is a safe and a sound one." If the banking system was safe and sound, everyone would know it (or at least think it). There would be no need to say it.

2. Paulson says the list of troubled banks "is a very manageable situation". The reality is there are 90 banks on the list of problem banks. Indymac was not one of them until a month before it collapsed. How many other banks will magically appear on the list a month before they collapse?

US Treasury Bonds at Risk Under Weight of Debt Moutain / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInstead of building its full faith and credit, the United States government is becoming increasingly faith less and is losing credit by the second while sucking individual Americans into ever-greater debt. Yet, against all expectations, Americans seem to be waking up

Wealth cannot be borrowed. For some not-so-unknown reason, Americans seem oblivious of that fact. The reason: they have been conditioned to view debt as ‘money' for decades on end, while TV commercials showed them since childhood that all you need for the good life is a credit card from so-and-so bank – and a golden one, at that.

McFadden's Attempts to Abolish the Federal Reserve System / Interest-Rates / Fiat Currency

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLouis T. McFadden (1876-1936): An American Hero - Dr. Ron Paul, the Republican candidate for the 2008 presidential nomination, is not the first U.S. politician to point to the abuses of the Federal Reserve System and call for its abolishment. Similar pleas to get rid of the Fed were made by Reps. Wright Patman (1893-1976) and Henry Gonzales (1916-2000), both Democratic congressmen from Texas and chairmen of the House Banking Committee.

Bonds Slump as Equities Recovery from the Abyss / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter extending its gains for a 4th week in a row, the Treasury market pulled back as equities recovered from the abyss. The trend of bonds and energy trading in lock-step remained intact as bonds now sold off as energy prices corrected sharply. There was a recovery in stocks – especially financials during the latter part of the week, so the reverse safe-haven flows pressed bonds lower. The sharp increase in headline inflation also added fuel to the sell-off. Real returns on Treasury bonds are now negative across the entire yield curve, as even 30 year bonds provide a -.35% return after adjusting for inflation. That is great news for spenders and the government (who gets to borrow massive amounts of money at ultra low rates) but not so good for savers.

US Tax Payers to Fund Banking Losses to Prevent US Bond Market Collapse / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust in case you have been on Mars for the last week, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the U.S. seem to be having some financial trouble. For those outside the U.S., these two private companies are involved in funneling money to the U.S. housing market. Well, funneling might not be the right word. Shoveling, with big ones, might be more appropriate. Now that they are having financial problems a major question must be answered.

Freddie and Fannie is A Sad Day for U.S. Taxpayers and Investors / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Chris_Ciovacco

"Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson swatted back reports of government nationalization of Fannie and Freddie, which would mean making explicit what, has long been an implicit taxpayer guarantee of their liabilities. This would instantly add $5 trillion in liabilities to the federal balance sheet, doubling the U.S. public debt burden and putting America's AAA credit rating at risk. This is a nightmare scenario for taxpayers." Wall Street Journal, Saturday, July 12, 2008 (prior to Sunday's announcements)

Trillion Dollar Bailouts Will Likely Cripple US Budget and Imperil the Dollar / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

Gold finished trading in New York on Friday at $959.10, up $18.90 and silver was up to $18.72, up 48 cents. Gold rose in trading in Asia before selling off in early European trading on profit taking due to falling oil prices and a rising dollar this morning. Both gold and silver were up nearly 3% last week on inflation hedging and safe haven buying and profit taking is to be expected.

Fed is Playing an Incredibly Dangerous Game, a Look Back Over the Past 2 years / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

We have reached a stage now where it is becoming difficult to keep the various strands of my convoluted thoughts distinct and clear for the readers so, in keeping with one or two other writers it is time for a re-cap.

Farewell Indymac, What's Next? Say Hello to the 1970s Inflation Rate (Part2)  / Interest-Rates / Inflation

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThose of you who are familiar with my previous publications know my real estate forecasts remain unchanged since first published in 2006. To reiterate, I'm expecting an average decline from peak prices of 30% (best case scenario) to 35% (worst case scenario), sending home values back to pre-1999 levels. Within the next three years, mortgage rates should approach 8% and take off thereafter. Soon, we will see a 1970s type inflationary period. This will bode well for owners of real estate rental units.

Long-Term Treasury Bond Market Paradox / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Treasury Bond market can be confusing. Price inflation in the United States is intentionally made confusing. That keeps the public ignorant and poorly prepared to interrupt grand larceny and elite control of the printing press, the result of which has been a few decades of hidden confiscation of Middle Class work, wealth, and dreams. Long-term bond yields have many fundamental reasons why they should fall lower in the United States . They are interwoven and integrated. The US Economy is being killed by rising costs, in no way justifying higher borrowing costs. Yet amateurish opinions seem to coalesce in an absurd consensus. The Asian renaissance contributes mightily to both the impoverishment of America and its economic stagnation. Anyone who believes the US and Europe should share a consistent rhyming monetary policy is asleep at the analytic wheel. In the zero-sum game that is currencies, higher prices in the United States come with lower prices in Europe . Refer to marginal incremental movement in prices.
