By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: With the Dow down over 280 points yesterday and the dollar sinking fast, I just wanted to make absolutely sure you didn't miss my alert of this past Monday. So here it is again. All our signals are equally valid; all our instructions, equally urgent.

With last week delivering the worst stock market rout in nearly five years, millions of investors are in a state of paralysis.

A Few Thoughts on the Recent Credit Crisis - Half of All Hedge Funds Gone? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

In this issue:
Inflation is Baked into the CPI Numbers
The Mortgage Pig in the Python
Housing Starts Look to Stop
A Few Thoughts on the Recent Credit Crisis
Half of All Hedge Funds Gone?
Golf, Weddings, and Europe

With the economy increasingly looking like it will slow down materially in the last half of the year, there is a drum beat for the Federal Reserve to cut rates. But how likely is a rate cut this year? We take a very different look at inflation to see if there is any room for the Fed to give a boost to the economy. We look over our shoulder at Japan and the yen carry trade and ask a heretical question: does the Fed cutting rates make any difference?

Why Financial Stocks Still Look Too Risky ... / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Mike Larson writes: I don't want to pull any punches: This is the worst environment for banks, mortgage lenders, and the general U.S. financial industry that I've seen since 1998!

That's when gun-slinging hedge fund Long Term Capital Management bet billions of dollars in bond markets all over the world.

Everything went swimmingly … until Russia defaulted on its outstanding debts. That spooked global bond investors, prompting massive "flight to quality" buying in U.S. Treasuries. LTCM's bets went haywire and more than $4 billion in losses piled up.

Flash Alert: Wall Street Financial Meltdown! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: Wall Street is suffering a meltdown, and in a moment I'll tell you what to do about it.

The big picture: Anyone who thinks the meltdown is limited to a decline in stock prices should wake up and smell the coffee:

  • The big money that Wall Street was pouring into mortgages is drying up …
  • The big equity deals that were pouring still more money into the economy are bombing …
  • The U.S. economy, hooked on all that Wall Street money like a dope addict, is about to suffer one heck of a hangover …
  • The dollar is continuing to plunge virtually nonstop, and …
  • The worst is yet to come! But …

What's Behind the Dow's Swan Dive ... / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Mike Larson writes : Let's not mince words. This week has been simply awful for the Dow.  The Industrials plunged 226 points on Tuesday alone, put in an anemic bounce Wednesday, then sank another 311 yesterday. The carnage was even worse in several sectors I've flagged for months — home builders, financials, commercial REITs and more.

What's going on? What's behind this swan dive? Well, investors can be fickle:

What To Do As Stocks Go BUST! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Brady_Willett

Stock prices plunging around the world today, some value investor tips come to mind.

1) Do not short the market .  If you are thinking of going short because stocks must fall further, think again. Not only have bears that have waited for a sharp fall before entering the market short since 2003 had their heads handed to them, but as volatility returns to the marketplace put option premiums quickly shoot-up. In other words, trying to time the plunge can be dangerous, especially right after a sharp sell off.

Deja' vu, Spike Rally in Japanese Yen Spooks Global Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Gary_Dorsch

Perhaps the most important market in the world today is the vast network of foreign currencies, where total trading volume, including derivatives and futures, average around $2.9 trillion a day. This is ten times the size of the combined daily turnover on all the world's equity markets. And as world's economies have become increasingly integrated, so have the foreign exchange and global capital markets. 

And the size of the foreign exchange market is mushrooming each year. FX trading increased by 38% between April 2005 and April 2006 and has more than doubled since 2001. That's not surprising, since 18 of the top-20 central banks around the world are tolerating double-digit growth of their money supply. Therefore, fluctuations in the foreign exchange market are bound to become more violent.

Currencies Do Not Float, They Sink at Different Rates - The Crack-up Boom Series Part VII / Currencies / Financial Crash

By: Ty_Andros

In This Issue

The Crack-up Boom Series, Part VII
Currencies Do Not Float, They Sink at Different Rates.

Foreword - For greater insight into our publication, have a look at the Overview of Tedbits . It helps current and potential subscribers understand our mission in serving you. It also gives a broad description of what's unfolding globally and what you can expect from Tedbits as a regular reader.

The Crack Up Boom series is exploring the unfolding “Indirect Exchange” (as detailed by Ludvig Von Mises), that dollar holders will be using to exit their holdings now and eventually is will be followed by all holders of fiat currency holdings no matter which country is perpetrating the “fraud” of confiscation of wealth through the printing and credit creation process that all such monetary schemes evolve into. The “Crack Up Boom” will drive an inflationary global expansion to inconceivable heights over the coming years.

US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson: The Coming Financial Crash Shows Need for Immediate Monetary Reform / Economics / Financial Crash

By: Richard_C_Cook

US Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr., has joined the chorus of those in high places who are warning of a major worldwide economic downturn.

Paulson was quoted at length in a July 23, 2007, article in Fortune by Rik Kirkland entitled, “The Greatest Economic Boom Ever: Enjoy It While It Lasts.” Paulson's remarks came in the context of assessing the ability of the highly-leveraged equity, hedge, and derivative markets to withstand the shocks to come. He told Fortune in an interview:

Harry Houdini – Financial Markets Seasonal Patterns -- And Liar's Loans Toxic Waste / Commodities / Financial Crash

By: Captain_Hook

Market pundits are coming out of the woodwork prognosticating financial markets are in real trouble now because the subprime mess will spread to other markets, and a ‘ blood bath ' will occur in everything from commercial loans to the stock market. And then select others more conservatively espouse, while they are open to such possibilities given global imbalances / bubbles are undoubtedly stretched, it's not over until the fat lady sings, but that at a minimum we should count on increased volatility in the days ahead.

Subprime Lenders Fallout - It's all hitting the fan! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Mike Larson writes: It's all hitting the fan — right here, right now! The two Bear Stearns (BSC) hedge funds that Martin told you about in late June have reportedly been all but vaporized. Wiped out!

According to a July 18 New York Times story,

"Bear Stearns told clients in its two battered hedge funds late yesterday that their investments, worth an estimated $1.5 billion at the end of 2006, are almost entirely gone. In phone calls to anxious investors, Bear Stearns brokers reported yesterday that May and June had been devastating months for the portfolios.

Larry Edelson writes: I hate to say it, but I believe the next five to six months will harbor nightmares for the U.S. economy so profound that they will impact each and every one of us.

Before I go any further, let me say that I'm not a gloom-and-doomer. Longer term, I am very optimistic about U.S. and global economic growth. I'm even optimistic on the U.S. real estate market. But I'm also a realist …

The Perfect Financial Storm / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Captain_Hook

Below is an excerpt from a commentary that originally appeared at Treasure Chests for the benefit of subscribers on Tuesday, June 19th , 2007.

Have we finally arrived – arrived at the point where we can say the perfect storm is unfolding before our very eyes? I don't know about you, but in my eyes it appears this may very well prove the case. Certainly one of the more important factors in this regard has got to be the inevitable war with Iran military forces appear to be preparing for that could send oil prices substantially higher . Not much will be getting through the Strait of Hormuz if war breaks out based on the arsenal Iranians are building up at present, where oil could go into triple digits, never mind $75 or $80. And even if war with Iran is averted, it's becoming more apparent every day that simple supply side constraints set against exploding demand will eventually send crude prices skyrocketing anyway. This you can count on, and you can count on it changing the way we live in just a few years from now. That's right, in not so many years from now you will look back on today and think – those were the good old days.

US Economy on Life-Support and Global Financial System on Brink of Collapse / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Richard_C_Cook

Remember when the U.S. was the world's greatest industrial democracy? Barely thirty years ago the output of our producing economy and the skills of our workforce led the world.

What happened? It's hard to believe that in the space of a generation our character and capabilities just collapsed as, for example, did our steel and automobile industries and our family farming. What then are the causes of the decline?

Hedge Funds and CDO Investment Landfills: How professionals dump their toxic waste on you / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Paul_Tustain

"...Not sure what happened at Bear Stearns? The root cause might surprise you. You might also find your own investment funds at risk, after being used as a landfill for the same kind of toxic waste..."

THIS IS NOT the idle chatter of permanent bears. The subprime mortgage collapse now hitting Bear Stearns may be just the start.

Serious analysts from big investment firms are talking ominously about "the big one". It will make you angry to learn just how the investment industry has got you involved.

The Smell of Financial Contagion in the Air / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Michael_J_Panzner

An ill wind swept through Wall Street last week, seeping into trading rooms, cubicles, and offices on every floor. All of a sudden, people began to feel anxious and afraid. After years of dreaming about how much they would make, people started worrying about how much they might lose. In a matter of days, the notion of risk had been transformed from a hypothetical concept to a potentially lethal reality.
