All Eyes on the Fed Signals on US Interest Rates and Inflation / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: William_Patalon_III

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. Federal Reserve will be in the spotlight again this week - and not because of those speaking engagements that seem to help whipsaw investor emotions. Tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday, central bank Chairman Ben S. Bernanke will meet with his fellow policymakers on the interest-rate setting Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).

Fed Interest Rate Cuts Have Fed Food and Fuel Inflation / Interest-Rates / Money Supply

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Between a rock and a hard place” - Over the past few months, the US Federal Reserve, amid much fanfare, has lowered the benchmark interest rate from 5.25% to 2%. This loose policy was lauded by those in the financial media as being the right thing to do to prop up the economy, and banks in particular. Bernanke went from being the goat to the hero almost overnight. Rest easy folks, our Fed Chairman is on board; finally having gotten with the program.

Fed to Keep Interest Rates on Hold for Months if Not Years / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury market finally showed some signs of life last week after a multi-week annihilation. It was a relatively quiet week in bond land as traders were more preoccupied with ever rising energy prices and ever increasing problems in the financial sector. After many months of deliberations the rating agencies finally got around to downgrading the bond insurers. 2 observations are in order here: 1, don't ever never ever never rely on the rating agencies for advice as they are severely, severely lagging indicators and they have a huge conflict of interest and 2, make sure you have a chuckle and quickly dismiss anyone who is trying to sell you on the idea of efficient markets.

How the Fiat Money System Invents Money and What's Gone Wrong / Interest-Rates / Fiat Currency

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week I want to aim the article at those who normally do not frequent financial bulletin boards or sites. You, the reader, need to help me in this cause.

People who read financial BB's are already interested and to some extent (though not always) informed about how certain economic conditions occur and can hold a healthy debate about the cures for such ills.

$2 Trillion Credit Contraction as Consumer Debt Defaults Soar / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCredit is drying up everywhere. Banks are now concerned (finally), about rising credit card debt. They have every reason to be. The bankruptcy reform act of 2005, which encouraged such reckless lending is now blowing up in lenders' faces.

Banks and credit card companies wrote that bill. They got everything they wanted. It goes to show you two things:

Fed and US Dollar Credibility at Stake Due to Financial Crises and Surging Inflation / Interest-Rates / Inflation

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: For the currency markets I follow, and every other financial market right now, inflation is the buzz word. Each and every new report of rising prices releases new concern — whether the threat is revealed in Brazil, the United States, Europe or even your local grocery store.

No one likes forking over more cash this month than they did last month ... for anything. But this inconvenient fact is being increasingly realized across the world.

Fed Emergency Liquidity Flood Not Bourn Out by the Facts / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe constantly hear from the talking heads that the Fed's recent policy actions are creating mammoth amounts of financial liquidity. But have these talking heads bothered to look at the data? If they did, they would have to change their tune.

Let's start with the raw material of financial liquidity created by the Fed - the size of its balance sheet. Chart 1 shows that the year-over-year growth in the total assets of the Federal Reserve System was up 3.85% in the week ended June 18.

Failed States 2008: Mexico and California / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

WHAT UP WITH THE MEXICAN PESO ??
Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the same time the US Federal Reserve relaxed its rules, expanded it Lending Facilities, and rescued big US bank balance sheets with massive swaps of USTreasury Bonds for impaired private mortgage bonds, the Mexican Peso rose. See the March timeframe. It rose above the 93.5 critical resistance. The target on the rectangular range swing is roughly 4 points, a rise to reach 97.5, which has occurred. With deep trouble south of the border in economic fundamentals, one would expect the MexPeso to falter. Three theories will be offered, each very likely, somewhat laced together.

Central Banks Buying Securitized Debt to Save Banks from Collapse / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Ninety-five per cent of the credit created by UK banks in May went to buying back loans that they'd already sold to other investors..."

BANKS LOOK to lend money. Investors want to get rich. The Pope's been known to attend Mass.

Fed Uses Self Created Credit Crisis to Grab Power / Interest-Rates / Market Regulation

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThroughout history, governments have always used crises to justify blatant power grabs.  Often the crisis subsides, but the expanded government powers remain.  In America this week, the tendency came into sharp focus.  Congress signaled that it is preparing to perpetuate the Bush Administration's domestic wiretapping program, and has even abandoned the pretense that warrantless surveillance be confined to terrorism.  Similarly, even though our financial crisis has yet to reach full flower, Treasury Secretary Paulson announced plans to give the Federal Reserve new and explicit powers to oversee and regulate the financial services industry.  However, a sober look at his plan reveals that it is tantamount to giving the fox complete autonomy to guard the henhouse.

Treasury Market Takes a Pounding, Dropping to New Lows for 2008 / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The Treasury market dropped to new lows for 2008 last week. The drumbeat of inflation concerns just became a little louder not only in the USA but also internationally. Oil and its surrogates keep trucking up to new highs and corn is certainly keeping pace with them. Central Banks are talking tough but until I actually see the Fed raise rates, I remain a skeptic as to how much they are really willing to do in order to reign in the runaway commodity inflation. Although I fully believe in peak oil, I also figure that the ongoing slowdown in the global economy coupled with surprising progress in the alternative energy space will eventually reign in the present energy price problems.

ECB Calls Bernanke’s Bluff on Defending the US Dollar / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA new member of the British Parliament once solicited the advice of Benjamin Disraeli, the nineteenth century British prime minister, on whether he should speak up on a controversial issue. “Do you have anything to say that has not already been said?” Disraeli asked him. “No,” the man conceded. “I just want the people whom I represent, and the members of Parliament to know that I participated in the debate.”
