U.S. Treasury Bonds Volatility and Interest Rate Swaps / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rising long-term USTreasury Bond yield continues to capture attention. The breakout chart for the 10-year Treasury shot up to 3.75% last week, but zoomed to touch 4.0% this week. Less attention has been directed at the short-term USTreasury Bill yields. What was a reasonably steady 2-year TBill yield in the 0.80% to 1.0% range has made a big move to 1.35% suddenly. Few have noticed, since mortgage rates are tied to the 10-year USTreasury. Much talk came in the last few weeks that China was rebalancing its USTreasury hoard, selling some long-term maturity bonds and buying shorter-term maturity bills. The rise in bond yields has actually been attributed to a USEconomic recovery, but that is absurd on its face, with a dozen statistics to debunk it. This China story was intended to mask the real events, to blame them in part for the US bond instability, and to divert attention away from a potentially important threat. Not only has the housing market stalled, with new mortgages and refinanced loans hitting a brick wall.

Anatomy Of A Treasury Bond Market Top / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the major themes that I have been highlighting on this blog since its inception 6 months ago is the potential for a secular trend change in long term Treasury bonds. Starting back in December, 2008, there was a high likelihood of higher yields and lower bond prices. Last month provided technical confirmation that the top is in for Treasury bonds, and we should see yield pressures in the long end of the curve lasting at least 12 months.

As Treasury Bond Yields Rise, Why Are Other Yields Falling? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a lot in the press these days about how the recent rise in Treasury bond yields has the potential to abort a nascent economic recovery. To this I say, nonsense! Chart 1 shows that as the Treasury bond yield has risen in recent weeks, the yields on privately-issued debt have declined in absolute levels. Chart 2 shows that the stock market has been trending higher since March as the Treasury bond yield has risen.

Seasonal's and Fundamentals Supportive of Treasury Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market sold off another four and a half points during the course of last week.  Market participants seem to be convinced that the worst is behind us as they were busy selling more bonds and buying whatever else they could get their dirty paws on.  This week there is another set of 3, 10 and 30 year Treasury auctions on deck.  That ought to hold the market back at the outset, but perhaps not after Thursday’s long bond auction.

Geithner on a Fool’s Errand in China / InvestorEducation / US Bonds

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Bonner writes: This week brought an entertaining episode. Wall Street’s man in Washington, incidentally Secretary of the US Treasury, was sent to Beijing. His mission: to convince the canny Chinese of something that everyone knows is untrue – that US bonds are safe. But if the Americans keep faith with China, it won’t be for lack of trying.

Team Obama Charm Offensive on U.S. Treasury Bond Holders / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week, Team Obama took their dog and pony show on the road. Treasury Secretary Geithner went to China, Fed Chairman Bernanke to Capitol Hill, and the President himself began a Mideast tour in Saudi Arabia. This full-court press is not coincidental, and comes just as the federal government has begun unloading trillions of dollars in new Treasury obligations. The coordinated charm offensive is meant to assure the world-at-large that the United States can repay these obligations without destroying the dollar.

Geithner & China on U.S. Treasury Bonds Sales Trip: Who Are You Fooling? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTreasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s trip to Asia has been heralded as a sales trip aimed at convincing the Chinese to keep buying U.S. Treasuries and thereby finance U.S. deficits. Such headlines are, in my humble opinion, an insult to the Chinese. Over and over again, we fall victim of the temptation to believe that Chinese leaders act in a vacuum, dictating policies out of a closet. Chinese leaders know very well the state of the Chinese, the U.S., and the world economy; they don’t need a sales pitch. So what’s the purpose of Geithner’s trip then?

Fed Credibility Bubble Bursts as Too Big to Fail General Motors Goes Bankrupt / InvestorEducation / US Bonds

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: General Motors used to be among the giant companies widely considered “too big to fail.”

Almost all of Wall Street said a GM bankruptcy was “unthinkable.” Most Americans didn’t even consider it as a real possibility. And as recently as February, outgoing and incoming administration officials were still insisting they would never let it happen.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Oversold, Strong Seasonal Influences Supportive of a Rally / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market sold off another three and a half points during the course of last week before managing to recover to almost unchanged for the week.  It was one of the strangest weeks of trading activity that I have seen in a long time.  While the economic data offered no major surprises to drive substantial moves in yields, the focus appeared to be on the Treasury auction calendar.

Treasury Bond TLT ETF Rallying / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is interesting that the iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NYSE: TLT) is rallying with the commodity sector today.  Yes, the TLTs are very oversold, so let’s not read too much into today’s strength.  However, I am suspicious that the strength just might be a reflection of anticipated Fed activity and buying interest in the long end – to prevent a back-up in mortgage rates and/or a derailment of fledgling economic recovery regardless of an increase in inflationary perceptions.

U.S. Treasury Bond market Severely Damaged / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market was severely damaged last week.  The theme from my previous note about the continued deterioration of the credit quality of government bonds and the consequent increase in real yields is certainly coming to fruition in swift fashion.  It all started on Wednesday when the Standard and Poor’s rating agency issued a credit watch (with negative implications – i.e. potential downgrade from the best available AAA rating) for bonds issued by the United Kingdom – also known as Gilts.

Triple-A Credit Rating or Bond Markets Bust? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you take a short walk down memory lane, it will not take you very long to find the carcass of New Century Financial along the side of the road back in March 2007. It would be a full 12 months before the word recession would be mentioned in the US mainstream media and stock markets would roar into their all-time highs six months after the disintegration of New Century. Much of the early portion of the credit crisis as it was called focused on mortgages and after that, mortgage-backed securities. Wow, haven’t heard that term in a while, have we?

Martin says — and he’s exactly right — that the safest place in the world for your money is U.S. Treasury bills. In his book you’ll find a very handy list of money market funds that invest strictly in short-term Treasury securities: No commercial paper, bank notes, or other risky bonds.
