The Real Reason U.S. Government Is Paying Down the National Debt / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: After six years of non-stop deficit spending that has added $8.2 trillion to the national debt, the U.S. Treasury has announced that it expects to reduce the country's debt by $35 billion this quarter.

Given that national debt growth has rocketed past $16.7 trillion and is on track to exceed $17 trillion at some point in the fall, a $35 billion reduction is laughably tiny. It's just 0.02% of what we as a nation owe.

Global Central Bank Money Printing Will Cause Long-Term Damage / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

Sasha Cekerevac writes: One of the most confusing topics of late is the low level of the inflation rate even though monetary stimulus has been quite aggressive worldwide. The most recent data point came from Japan, in which consumer prices dropped by 0.5% in March versus the same time in 2012.

Welcome to the Next Subprime Bubble / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: Who could forget the subprime mortgage crisis of just a few years ago?

If there's one good thing that came out of that nightmare, it's that we - borrowers, lenders, financial institutions all - learned that securitizing bad loans and letting them spread like poison throughout the financial system was a bad thing.

We can look back at the subprime crisis with the wisdom of afterthought, and see all the mistakes laid bare.

Euro-zone Debt Crisis is Back / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: The Eurozone debt crisis that was supposed to have blown over long ago instead has become more like an endless game of Whac-a-Mole, with both new and old problems popping up faster than European leaders can bop them.

As Europe's finance ministers gathered in Dublin today (Friday), they faced at least half a dozen major issues threatening the fiscal health of the Eurozone.

All of a Sudden, 2013 Becomes Another Trillion-Dollar Deficit Year / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Profit_Confidential

In its monthly statement of receipts and outlays for the month, the Treasury Department reported that the U.S. government incurred a budget deficit of $107 billion for the month of March 2013. (Source: Department of the Treasury, April 10, 2013.) This monthly budget deficit was a result of the government spending $293 billion while only taking in $186 billion in March.

Short Japan Bonds to Profit From the End of the Monetary System / Interest-Rates / International Bond Market

By: Jeff_Berwick

While most people will lose their shirts as The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) continues down its predictable path there are some who will make fortunes.

At The Dollar Vigilante we’ve already been ahead of the curve on many profitable ventures related to TEOTMSAWKI. TDV Senior Editor, Ed Bugos, has been a proponent of owning gold since 2000 when it was at $200 and upon TDV’s founding in 2010 we immediately added gold as the largest part of our portfolio while it was trading near $1,200 and quickly saw that rise to nearly $2,000.

The Beginning of the End for Japanese Bonds / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Bloomberg

Kyle Bass, managing partner at Hayman Capital Management, told Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schaztker on "Market Makers" today that he thinks "it's the beginning of the end" for Japanese bonds. He said, "When I started sharing our views more globally it was the middle of 2010 and I said I believe the stress would begin to show itself in the next three years. Pretty much three years in, we're close, and the stress is beginning to show."

Global Sovereign Debt Skyrockets, Bubble to Burst / Interest-Rates / International Bond Market

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mitchell Clark writes: “Risk” is a four-letter word.

It’s the kind of thing you wish you spent a lot more time thinking about before a shock actually happens.

Right now, the Federal Reserve is re-inflating assets while sovereign debt skyrockets. It’s been doing so for a number of years now, and the stock market is moving.

Forget About The Fed Dialing Back QE3 – U.S. Buy Bonds! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Sy_Harding

The economic recovery has been progressing so well that it had become almost a sure thing the Fed will begin phasing out its easy money policy and QE stimulus programs much earlier than planned, possibly beginning as early as this summer.

Even the Fed seems to be preparing markets for that probability with its recent statements, and speeches by individual Fed governors.

U.S. Treasury Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

As I scanned my charts I thought I’d got a little off the beaten track to highlight something that is deeply affecting us. That is Treasury yields.

The reason I said this is because Treasury yields may have made their Master Cycle low today, or may do so in the next few trading days. The Cycles Model captures this event by showing that yields may have been stopped at the mid-Cycle support line at 17.53. There may be a challenge or a probe lower, but the uptrend line is just beneath it, so we will know very soon whether it is successful in turning Yields back up or not. If so, the uptrend in yields is preserved.

The First Crack In The Bond Market Is A Fact / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2013

By: GoldSilverWorlds

There are two main issues in the Cypriot banking crisis. The first one is related to the general principle of loans: it is axiomatic that all loans get paid either by the borrower or by the lender. This is the fundamental relationship that anyone has with the bank. When you deposit money into the bank, in your mind it is your money. In the bank’s mind, and from a legal point of view, it is a loan to the bank. If the bank makes foolish investments and loses money [including (y)ours], someone has to pay it.

Zero Interest Rates is Not Economic Stimulus, Rather a Death Knell / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The propaganda has been thick over the last few years, especially since the US banking system suffered a fatal heart attack in September 2008. It has not recovered since, still insolvent, still wrecked, having returned a zombie center with a USTBond carry trade core and continued money laundering basement lifeline. The Jackass is tired beyond words, beyond description, of hearing that the Zero Percent Interest Policy is being kept as a stimulus measure to encourage continued economic recovery. It is neither a stimulant, nor is the USEconomy in recovery mode. The official 0% rate signals a death knell to the national financial foundation and economic vibrancy, the climax event slow in its pathogenesis following the departure from the Gold Standard in 1971. The official 0% FedFunds rate (call it 25 basis points, no matter) is a direct signal of terminal illness for the entire capitalist structures within both the United States and its Western partners who stupidly or helplessly follow its lead. They followed the US lead in the housing & mortgage bubble disaster with complete wreckage, yet they continue to follow the US monetary lead. They claim to have no choice. They do indeed have a choice, to discard the USDollar and to sell out of the USTreasury Bond, to impose a Gold Standard.

Is the Fed Creating an Auto Subprime Loan Bubble? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Submissions

Terry Allen writes: Loans to subprime automobile borrowers are presently surging as a direct result of the current aggressive stimulus policies imposed by the US Federal Reserve. For example, deals instigated by car dealers soared by over 18% during 2012 involving over 6.5 million high risk borrowers. Reviews of court files by prominent market analysts have disclosed that auto subprime lenders are now one of the main reasons why so many Americans are forced to file for bankruptcy.

The Only Way Forward For Europe Is Splittsville / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Seeing Spanish and Italian bond yields drop over the past few days, it's impossible not to wonder what it is the markets, whoever they're comprised of, can't seem to figure out. Like that the Italian cloud will hang over Europe well into summer, Cyprus is falling to scandalous bits, French president Hollande is hanging on to his job for dear life because his friend and Budget minister Jerome Cahuzac was found to be an ordinary big swindler, and in Spain even the King Carlos' daughter Princess Christina is now a suspect in a financial scandal (PM Rajoy's antics will resurface soon).

Grant Williams : Section 6 of the NFL official rulebook contains five articles, all of which deal with infringements that result in a 'delay of game' penalty.

Cyprus and the Unraveling of Fractional-Reserve Banking / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Joseph_T_Salerno

The “Cyprus deal” as it has been widely referred to in the media may mark the next to last act in the the slow motion collapse of fractional-reserve banking that began with the implosion of the savings-and-loan industry in the U.S. in the late 1980s.

This trend continued with the currency crises in Russia, Mexico, East Asia, and Argentina in the 1990s in which fractional-reserve banking played a decisive role. The unraveling of fractional-reserve banking became visible even to the average depositor during the financial meltdown of 2008 that ignited bank runs on some of the largest and most venerable financial institutions in the world. The final collapse was only averted by the multi-trillion dollar bailout of U.S. and foreign banks by the Federal Reserve.

It is my contention that the 70-year debt supercycle has come to an end.

To put the current financial situation in perspective, here's a long-term history of the debt-to-GDP ratio, which reached a record high at the beginning of the current crisis. It was a dramatic change in 2009, unlike anything since the aftermath of the Great Depression.
