Mortgage Interest Rate Resets May Fuel LIBOR Market Manipulation / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes:It's panic time for U.S. legislators, regulators, banks and lenders. More than $24 billion worth of adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) are expected to “re-set” to higher interest rates in November – boosting the likelihood of further home foreclosures.

And it gets worse. That increase in borrowing costs will spread to other parts of the global debt market, representing an across-the board threat to corporate, institutional and sovereign borrowers. If interest rates remain high and interbank lending remains tight, the credit crisis is not likely to recede.

Time to Stop Blaming and Start Solving the Credit Crisis Debt Problems / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the key reasons behind the current financial crisis is that the big investment banks, hedge funds and other financial companies borrowed way too much money. Another key reason we're in this big mess is that way too many American households borrowed way too much money.

Extreme debt is the common denominator that links Wall Street and Main Street , and the numbers are truly staggering. When the debt suddenly came due, neither Street had anywhere near the cash to cover it. Overleveraging hurt hedge funds when markets got tougher and many of their investors wanted their money back. These hedge funds were forced to sell sizable positions in natural resources and energy equities, driving prices down sharply.

Keynesian Economic Claptrap From PIMCO / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe amount of total nonsense currently circulating on the so called Paradox of Thrift is staggering.

The paradox: An increase in saving, which is generally good advice for an individual during bad economic times, can actually worsen the macroeconomy causing a reduction in aggregate income, production, and paradoxically a decrease in saving.

How LIBOR Threatened to Destroy the Global Banking System / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: largest financial crisis since the Great Depression has revolved around an interest rate that many U.S. investors are only now hearing about for the very first time: The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR).

But if you understand that rate, and study the forces that have been influencing it, chances are very good that you can figure out how we can escape the current banking-sector mess without wrecking the entire world economy.

Understanding Derivatives to Understand the Credit Crisis / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike it or not we hear the term “derivatives” bandied about in the mainstream financial press these days with increasing regularity.

In recent times it has come to be a term that, when mentioned in conjunction with a particular financial institution, can cause loss of confidence or worse, maybe a herd-like run on deposits [or policies] on the offending institution.

After the Market Crash Liquidity Starts to Repair Banking System / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother historical week – the largest one day decline since the '87 crash and the largest one day gain since the '29 crash. OK, so the market is/has crashed – now what? Liquidity in the form of government and Federal Reserve funds are flooding the markets, buying nearly everything from bad bank debt to actual bank stock. Some have argued we are moving to a socialist society, but we'll leave the politics for someone else to discuss. Unfortunately the liquidity has not made it into the hands of those with loans outstanding or for those wanting to enter loan arrangements. The banking system is acting as a sponge, sopping up any and all liquidity it can find to repair very poor balance sheets.

Government Bailouts Herald New Era of Tax Payer Slavery / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the midst of highly unpopular bailouts of Wall Street, many justifications have been given about why Washington feels the need to act. Some claim that capitalism and the free market are to blame, but we have not had capitalism. If you compare our financial capital to our aggregate debt, this would be obvious. In the same way, we have not had a truly free market. The monetary manipulations of the Federal Reserve, a complex tax code, the many "oversight" agencies and their mountains of regulations show that we are far removed from a free market economy.

Ghost of John Maynard Keynes- Comments on Economic and Financial Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1/What is your view of how long the financial system crisis will continue and how much deeper it will it get?

 

One can only hazard a guess by looking at other experiences with banking crises. Japan took about 5 years from the time it started to recapitalize its banks. Sweden and Thailand took a little less time but none were V shaped recoveries.   There is a far greater urgency to efforts now in the US and Europe after a year of dithering and denial but these are still early days and the scale being global is larger and we have the unprecedented scale of the derivative problem. It could still spiral out of control requiring the whole banking sector to be taken into public ownership, but more likely we will have an extended period of recession and subnormal growth covering much of the Obama presidency – assuming he wins.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBCA Research: Policymaker action finally hitting critical mass - “Fresh capital and government guarantees for bank liabilities are very positive signs that the credit crisis is nearing an end, although it will be a long road to recovery.

“Policymakers around the world have ‘pulled out the big guns' in their efforts to get the credit markets working again. Over the weekend, numerous European governments announced a massive bank bailout plan that includes funds for recapitalization, credit guarantees, and the purchase of troubled assets.

Those Responsible for the Credit Crisis Should Go to Jail / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: By far, the No. 1 question I've received this week has been: Why aren't the guys who caused the credit-crisis meltdown headed for jail?

Personally, I believe these savings-sapping, market-mashing miscreants ought to be rotting at the bottom of a deep dark hole. At the very least, they should be impoverished and prevented from capitalizing any further on the chaos they caused, meaning no book deals or fruitful forms of tell-alls.

Elegant Market-based Solution to the Financial Crisis / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2008

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PROBLEM: In a strange and awkward way, some of us here in the mezzanine have experienced a rather morbid and dark sort of enjoyment as we watch those on stage who created the world-altering credit crisis, and the governments who enabled it, squirm and writhe - like a child caught in his first big lie - as they attempt to sort out the consequences of what they've done. What we see from our vantage point is, instead of coming clean, they continue adding layer-upon-layer of ever-glossier, ever-less-credible volumes to their original prevarications. In my opinion, this is EXACTLY NOT what the world needs right now.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to the Weekly Report. As I write this on Saturday afternoon, I see nothing from the G7 statements that can be taken as co-ordinated action. Indeed all I see is a repeat of what is becoming a tired mantra:

  • At the White House, Mr Bush pledged the G7 most industrialised nations would take robust action together.

    On Friday, G7 finance ministers agreed to take moves to free the flow of credit, back efforts by banks to raise money and revive the mortgage market.
