Drop In US Long Term Interest Rates Manipulated By Fed Open Market Operations / Interest-Rates / Market Manipulation

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStraight from the Horse's, Uhh ... Mouth Ben Bernanke told us five years ago he would inflate to no end. Now he's making good on his word.

Ever wondered why long term interest rates are so conveniently falling in sync with the official need to avoid troubled-loan ARMs to reset significantly higher in early 2008?

NOLTE NOTES - Bond Market Rallies Despite Rising Inflation, Stocks to Buck Season Trend and Head Lower / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The inflation figures released last week did little to derail the bond rally of the past few months. While it was in-line with expectations, the year-to-year inflation figures are running higher than many are comfortable with and as such, expect that the Fed is not going to cut rates that is already factored into the market. This holiday week, we'll get some housing data that many are hoping will indicate that housing is beginning to stabilize.

Rush For Treasury Bonds Safety As Risks Rise At Cash Money Market Funds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCertain “yield enhanced short term bond funds” which have been offered as higher yield substitutes for money market funds have been feeling the pinch from the credit markets. The latest victim is a company that you'd not normally think of as a finance company, General Electric Company. “The diversified manufacturing company's money management arm, GEAM, which oversees the $5 billion GEAM Trust Enhanced Cash Fund, is still invested in the fund, but GE warned last week that it would sell holdings amid tough market conditions.

Strong Uptrend in US Treasuries Suggesting Recession - Long Lehman 20-Year T-Bond ETF / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

One very curious aspect of the powerful upmove in the equity market during the past 24 hours is the lack of opposite selling pressure in the bond market and Lehman 20-year T-note ETF (AMEX: TLT). If in fact last week's plunge in equities (into yesterday morning) aroused fears of an implosion, and with it a flight to safety in the bond market, then removal of such fears might be expected to reverse or eliminate the flight-to-safety premium. From the look and the behavior of the TLT's today, I have to wonder what is preserving the buoyancy of the long end of the Treasuries?

Understanding the US Credit Crunch of 2007 / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week in Outside the Box I strive to address an issue that I have been meditating on for quite some time. Precisely, how have we arrived at the current credit crisis that now threatens the domestic and global economy. I believe one of the underlying reasons is what is termed the "Minsky Moment," the topic of this weeks Outside the Box. If we understand how we have arrived at this crisis, we may get some clues as to how it will unfold. I am going to take up other thoughts on this topic next Friday.

US Fed Buying Bad Debt to Halt Credit Crunch - Headlines in Disguise / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

Financial's Burning As CDS and Municipal Bond Markets Explode - Fingers of Instability, Part 12 / Interest-Rates / Financial Crash

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn This Issue – 4 Fingers of Instability

  • Broad Fires in Financial's and the Prescriptions You Can Count On
  • Next Shoe to Drop, “CDS” and Municipal BOMB Market!
  • Generals Retreat!
  • Sheer Insanity

Last week was a veritable avalanche of illusions presented to the public as FACTS. Anyone who invests predicated on these HEADLINES is DOOMED. The markets gave clear fingerprints of the true stories as did the internals of the reports provided with the headline numbers. Volatility was and is front and center providing huge opportunities for prepared investors. These moves are in their infancy, as are the financial authorities who are just beginning to understand the enormity of the task in front of them in repairing the credit markets as the dominoes just keep falling. This volatility was extremely destructive to poorly prepared portfolios. Which side of this divide are you on?

The US Fed, The Discount Interest Rate and Market Manipulation / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the wake of the recent Fed meeting and the worldwide attention that it seems to gather these days, I want to address once again the Fed and the Discount rate, but I also want to address manipulation.

First of all, I want to readdress the fact that despite popular opinion, the Fed follows the lead of the short-term credit markets. My Trend Indicator on my Fed model turned down in June, before the first rate cut occurred.

The economy added 166,000 new jobs last month, almost double the average estimate. GDP for the US came in at a blowout 3.9% growth, well above trend. The Fed cut its rate by another 25 basis points, but many observers see language in the accompanying statement which they think suggests the Fed is done with cutting, at least for now, as the economy appears stronger.

Are US Interest Rates Going to Fall on Wednesday? The Markets Certainly Thinks So / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the last Fed rate cut occurred, it set off a rapid chain reaction in all of the four markets; currencies, commodities, bonds and stocks. For example, the Canadian dollar jumped to par with the U.S. greenback, gold broke out of its 12-month consolidation, U.S. bonds reversed their three year slide and utilities started to climb again. Will the Fed cut the rates again at the next meeting on Wednesday? The markets are certainly suggesting that.

More Subprime and CDO Banking Problems / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

By: David_Urban

Security pricing used to mean you checked your Bloomberg terminal or the Wall Street Journal for valuation prices. Now, pricing has become so complex that it has been broken down into 3 separate levels. The short version is that if you are pricing by Level 1, the security is being market to market and based on market prices. Level 2 is marking to matrix where prices are based on dealer-pricing based on surveys or market bids and offers. Level 3 pricing is based on marking to model which is based on models or managements best estimates.
