UK Jobs, BoE, Sterling and Yield Spreads / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Today's UK jobs figures powered the pound across the board as average weekly earnings growth (excluding bonuses) shot up to a six-year high of 2.7% in the three months to April y/y, exceeding market expectations for a 2.1% rise. Substracting the 0.1% level of inflation, real earnings come in at 2.6%, also the highest since 2009. If wage gains persist on their upward trend, then wage cost inflation would follow, forcing the gilt market to price more aggressive expectations for a BoE rate hike.

Geopolitics Will Trump Economics in Greece / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

Based on the continued failure of the negotiating parties to make any substantive progress in the talks over Greek debt payments, the financial world is tied up in knots over a possible Greek exit from the European Union. The uncertainty has manifested in both high and low finance, with a sharp sell-off in bonds, particularly EU and Greek government debt, and heightened retail withdrawals from Greek banks as depositors become wary of capital controls that would be imposed in the case of an exit. All concerned parties should likely breathe easier. Despite Greece's almost complete lack of financial integrity, neither NATO nor the EU can afford the political cost of a Greek exit from the EU.

Global Bond Market Crash Could Be “Ground Zero” for the Biggest Financial Crisis Ever / Interest-Rates / Bond Bubble

Let’s Just Get This Greece Thing Over With / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Rubino

Guys, please. As much as we all love a good crisis, this is getting old. The threats, the name-calling, the apocalypse certain to occur if one side doesn’t immediately cave to the other’s unreasonable demands. Seems like your Greek tragedy has been going on forever, and like a long-running TV show that keeps pushing the big reveal into the next season, your audience is beginning to lose interest.

Or is that the goal? Exceed our attention span, send us off to more vibrant stories like Russia or ISIS or Caitlyn Jenner — and then, when no one is looking, hit us with something really crazy. By now, that possibility is all that’s keeping us tuned in.

Stop the Fed!? / Interest-Rates / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Axel_Merk

We are concerned the Fed causes both economic and political stability to deteriorate. And, no, this is not about discouraging the Fed to hike rates. This analysis is about pointing out that the road to hell may be paved with the best of intentions. For the economy to prosper, we need a re-thinking not just at the Fed, but also with some Fed critics. Let me elaborate...

Why the Fed Is Afraid To Raise Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

Even though the major stock market averages are flat for the first six months of the year, by nearly every measure the stock market is still extremely overvalued. This point is not lost on Ms. Yellen and company, as the Fed Chair herself has recently assented that the current value of stocks are "quite high". Given this, the Fed must privately be afraid that even a small change in the Fed Funds Rate could serve as the needle that pops the massive bubble in the stock market.

Monetary Quackery in Ireland / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2015

By: Antonius_Aquinas

If Ireland is ever going to leave PIIGS status (the acronym for Europe’s most indebted and financially challenged economies – Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Spain), it must stop listening to, and then criminally prosecute the monetary authorities which have brought the country to financial ruin. It can start this most necessary process with the nation’s central bank governor, Patrick Honohan. Not only must Professor Honohan be hauled away, preferably in chains, but the sinister institution in which he heads, Ireland’s central bank, Banc Ceannais na hÉireann, must be eradicated.

Bond Market Bombshell - Deflation Rules! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Clive_Maund

DEFLATION RULES! - because periodic recessions, necessary to rebalance the economy after periods of growth, cannot be put off forever by the short-term expedient of printing money. The result of such corrupt and evasive practices is that the deflationary forces build up to catastrophic and overwhelming proportions leading to economic collapse and depression. This is the point that we have arrived at now. Why can't governments keep the game going indefinitely by printing more and more money? - because the debt grows and grows until it becomes apparent even to dull-witted bond / Treasury holders that they are never going to get their money back, so they start selling and the selling snowballs into an avalanche, driving interest rates through the roof. Bond and stockmarkets crash and the economy sinks into a dangerously deep depression, all because governments stubbornly refused to do the right thing all along, and interfered with and obstructed normal market forces, culminating in their idiotic and ruinous QE, ZIRP and now even NIRP.

What You Really Need to Know to Play Rising Rates and Win / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Millions of investors are understandably flummoxed by the prospect of rising rates, and with good reason – it’s something that they’ve never had to contend with because interest rates have been on a one way trip down since 1981 when they peaked above 15%.

Naturally, Wall Street’s hype machine is in full gear and the headlines are terrifying. For every one telling you this isn’t a big deal there are 10 telling you it’s the end of the financial universe as you know it.

The Future of Greece and Gold / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

What are the possible scenarios for Greece and what do they imply for the gold market? The base-case scenario is that a bailout deal will be reached in coming days since no one wants the Grexit. Without the agreement, Greece would lose access to its external funding (like current bailouts funds, Eurozone’s crisis fund, IMF’s support or ECB’s Emergency Liquidity Assistance), whilst creditors risk Greece’s default, financial contagion and the loss of the euro’s prestige. However, both sides took tough positions, since Syriza does not want to disappoint its voters and does not believe in austerity policy, especially during recession, while creditors believe that the Eurozone is immune to possible Grexit. It is true that Greece and its creditors can only play the game of chicken to negotiate the best agreement and save face before their respective voters, but at this point, any mistake in negotiations can trigger a new crisis in Europe and increased volatility on the forex market.

Maybe no trend in modern times has been as convincing as interest rates. The yield on long-term Treasury bonds, for instance, has been falling for as long as most people have been alive:

Greece’s Current Debt Problems / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Greece is again on the brink. Hellas stood on the edge for the first time in spring 2010. In May 2010 the European Union and International Monetary Fund approved the first bailout worth €110 billion, under the condition of austerity measures. The first rescue package missed its targets as lenders’ economic forecasts for Greece were too optimistic. Therefore, in February 2012 the Troika (the Eurogroup, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund) finalized the second rescue package worth a €173 billion (including money left over from the first bailout) provided by the newly created European Financial Stability Facility.

US Jobs Report Gives Green Light for a Interest Rate Hike? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

TNX is back in the news this morning with a huge spike in yields. The monthly Jobs Report came out much better than expected. Never mind that the vast bulk of those jobs was fictitious, AKA the CES Birth/Death Model. This gives the Fed the green light to hike rates, er…to follow what the market is already doing with the rates. This is an awfully tight corner for the Fed to be in.

The Ugly Truth Behind the Fed's Quantitative Easing / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Shah Gilani writes: The growing income and wealth gap between the rich and poor, most of whom used to be called middle class, has many fathers. But behind the scenes one primary cause emerges. It's the greatest financial disruptor of modern times: Quantitative Easing (QE).

While the jury's out on whether QE will eventually be the step-ladder that lifts us out of the lingering Great Recession, as its proponents argue, the facts demand that the verdict on QE's egregious enrichment of the rich and subjugation of everyone else is: "guilty."

Bernanke is Still Bubble Blind / Interest-Rates / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Michael_Pento

Even though the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve is now getting paid privately for his economic and market prognostications, he is still unable to identify or acknowledge the monumental bubbles that central banks have engineered. Mr. Bernanke, who was recently interviewed in Korea, tried to assure investors that rate hikes (whenever they begin) would be good news for the U.S. economy. He was also very "optimistic" there would not be a hard landing in China. And, not surprisingly, the man who is now gainfully employed at the Brookings Institution, Pimco and hedge fund Citadel, is also "encouraged" by Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe's growth strategy. This is despite the fact that the thrust of Abenomics has been to depreciate the value of the Yen by 35 percent in the past two and a half years.

Japan’s Easy-Money Experiment and the Future / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: MISES

Brendan Brown writes: The International Monetary Fund (IMF), once the conductor of a global dollar exchange standard based partially on gold convertibility, has mutated into the official platform for the 2 percent inflation standard launched surreptitiously by the Greenspan Fed in July 1996. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) then approved a position paper by Professor Yellen that price stability should mean 2 percent inflation forever. Europe joined the standard in 1998, and Japan became the newest member in January 2013.
