Banking Stocks Breakdown Signals Next US Fed Interest Rate Cut / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn late summer, my perceived strong signal for the September rate cut proved accurate. It was the dire condition of the Wall Street broker dealer stock index, the XBD. My contention all along has been that the official USFed rate cut was motivated by Wall Street giant banker interests, whereby the actual rescue stimulus was disguised and thoroughly devious. In reality it was a mammoth subsidy for Wall Street firms. They stood first in line at the Discount Window. No obvious recession was evident in the USEconomy, except for a housing retreat (better labeled a rout).

FedWatch: Who's Going to Buy the Structured Investment Vehicle Asset Junk? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe backers of the proposed superfund being set up to buy assets from cash strapped structured investment vehicles (owned by banks) met last night. The presence of some $280 billion in leveraged debt vehicles is not only the source of new potential losses, but ties up funds from being lent in new, more profitable loans. These numbers are pretty much in line with the $251 billion of maturing asset backed commercial paper this week. In essence, these banks wish to slough off their mistakes and start afresh. But who's going to buy the stuff?

The Shadow Banking System Rescuing the SIV Garbage / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this issue:
Taking Out the SIV Garbage
The Rhinebridge to Nowhere
The $100 Billion Superfund to the Rescue?
Don't Ask, Don't Sell
The Shadow Banking System
New Orleans, Houston and Old Friends

This week was not pretty for stocks. It all started off with the announcement of a special 80-100 billion dollar fund orchestrated by the US Treasury to bail out something called an SIV. Then Caterpillar gave negative guidance this morning, especially on its US business and the selling began in earnest. October 19 is still not a friendly day to the stock market 20 years later. But it was a great week for bonds. One-month treasury bills dropped 60 basis points in one day in a real flight to short-term quality, and the entire yield curve moved down substantially.

Asset Class Behavior Following Fed Interest Rate Cuts - Part 2 of 4 / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The dollar has been sliding since the Fed last week cut interest rates by a larger-than-expected half percentage point. Since then, disappointing U.S. economic data have stoked expectations that another rate cut is on the way. Lower interest rates, used to jump-start an economy, can weaken a currency as investors transfer funds to countries where their deposits and fixed-income investments bring higher returns.As the dollar sinks, consumers find imported products— Australian wines, Japanese cars or Chinese toys — are more expensive.

Central Banks Inflation Quandary As Gold Prices in More US Interest Rate Cuts / Interest-Rates / Inflation

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the Fed cut the discount and target rates by .5% they tied the hands of some other central banks who have been wanting to raise rates. From China, to the Middle East, to the EU and then Japan, each has reacted in its own way as they find they have to take into serious consideration what the Fed does.

US Interest Rates Headed For 3.75% Over the Next 12 months / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are in a world far different than the one I learned about in economic text books. As I have written, the shadow banking system of hedge funds and CDOs, CLOs, PIPES, etc. have created a new financing economic reality far different than the traditional banking system was just 20 years ago. Does the Fed have the tools in its toolkit to deal with the new reality?

NOLTE NOTES Was the Fed Too Hasty to Cut Interest Rates ? / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Paul_J_Nolte

What a quarter – from the heights to the depths and back again, the quarter ended with the SP500 up a modest 1.5%, barely above the rate earned on bonds with a lot less gray hairs. Yields fell during the quarter, with short rates falling a full percentage point, while long-term bonds dropped a quarter percent. The news last quarter has been splashed all over the media – from liquidity crisis to real estate blues to just maybe a recession. But the money management business is never about what was done yesterday – what are y'all doing for me lately?

Why the Fed's US Interest Rates Policy Will Fail / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was only it was last August that I told readers not to be surprised if the fed cuts the funds rate. (US financial markets rocked — what is really happening ). Lo and behold, on September 18 the fed cut by 50 bps, reducing the funds rate to 4.75 per cent. The cut immediately ignited share prices, with the Dow Jones industrial average surging by 335 points. The only surprising thing is that anyone was actually surprised. That the first effect of a credit expansion is usually felt on the stock market seems to have eluded the commentariat 1 .

The Federal Reserve's Interest Rate Cut Does Not Help Americans / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Axel_Merk

In our assessment, the Federal Reserve's (Fed's) interest rate cut was wrong. Forget about the “moral hazard” of whether the cut would plant the seeds for further bubbles. Lowering interest rates is wrong because it will do few any good, but cause many a lot of harm.

NOLTE NOTES The Halo Effect Continues from the US Interest Rate Cut / Interest-Rates / US Economy

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The Fed surprised many in the markets and cut rates half of one percent (50bp) and the equity markets cheered to the tune of 400 Dow points. Either the Fed is VERY interested in heading off recession or there is more bad news ahead that they would like to be able to cut off before it built too difficult to overcome. The inflation news was certainly good – enough to provide the additional cover for the Fed to cut by 50bp. The housing numbers reported last week were certainly very poor and combined with a few corporate reports (FedEx and Circuit City) indicating that the consumer remains inthe struggling mode.

US Bonds Collapsing! Foreigners Abandoning the US Dollar! / Interest-Rates / US Dollar

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: If you thought the dollar's collapse would not affect you, think again! Here's what's happening:

First, U.S. bond prices are collapsing: In the two days after the Fed's rate cut, the price of the long-term Treasury bond plunged more than two and a half points, including the worst single-day plunge since September of 2003. This means bond yields, which move in the opposite direction, have surged.

Did the Fed Interest Rate Cut Fix the Credit Crunch Problem? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

By: Tim_Wood

Or, Are Their Actions a Sign of a Bigger Problem?

I have said before in my newsletters that the Fed's biggest fear is deflation and I believe that the move earlier this week proves that point. As the stock market began to decline in August the Fed began extending the discount window, encouraged banks to come to the discount window, and cut the discount rate. I reported here a couple of weeks ago that based upon the 3-month T-bill rate and my Trend Indicator that we have entered into an environment in which lower short-term rates should prevail. So, the fact that a cut was made came as no surprise. But, the shock was that the Fed cut both the Discount rate and the Fed funds rate by a half point. In my opinion, this was a drastic measure and it serves to show the Fed's true colors and it absolutely confirms that they are scared to death of deflation.

UK Interest Rates Forecast to Fall to 5% by September 2008 / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe most recently released inflation data shows UK CPI Inflation falling to 1.8% and RPI rising to 4.1% for August. Even though the picture is mixed, the slowing UK housing market and economy is expected to result in further moderating of the inflation picture over the next 12 months, which is to result in a fall in UK interest rates to a target of 5% by late 2008.
