In the Eye of the Storm of the Credit Crisis Hurricane / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we enter the height of the hurricane season, it may be worthwhile to recall, when considering the economy at large, the particular deception that lurks in the “eye” of the storm. After a raging tempest, the sudden appearance of the calm ‘eye’ can all too easily encourage people to leave their shelter in order to assess and even repair damage, exposing themselves to the often more devastating second leg of the hurricane.

Once in 100 Years Credit Crisis, World Heads for Deflationary Collapse / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Dr_William_R_Swagell

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The credit crunch of the past year has not followed the path of recent economically debilitating episodes characterized by a temporary freezing up of liquidity ─ 1982, 1989, 1997-8 come to mind. This crisis is different ─ a once or twice in a century event deeply rooted in fears of insolvency of major financial institutions.

This crisis was not brought to a closure by the world's central banks' injection of huge doses of short-term liquidity.

Credit Crunch Cancer Metastasizing / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: First, the subprime mess clobbered subprime lenders like Countrywide Financial.

Then, the cancer spread to America's largest banks that invested heavily in risky mortgage-backed securities.

Now, it's metastasizing again — spreading to regional and state banks as well.

Desperation at Washington Mutual (WaMu) Puts US Taxpayers at Risk / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Desperation is in the air at Washington Mutual (WM). That WaMu is offering 5% on CDs should be proof enough. From LastNightInVegas . If the 5% rate WaMu is offering on CDs isn't indication enough that there's trouble brewing, the fact that WaMu is promoting it with a hand drawn white board sign certainly clinches it.

Latest FDIC US Banking Systems Report Reads Like a Horror Novel / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: Every three months the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) puts out "Quarterly Banking Profiles." Most investors have never heard of them. The mainstream press has largely ignored them. Even Wall Street traditionally pays them little heed.

But not me! The QBP provides a wealth of information about the state of the U.S. banking industry. It tells you about the credit quality of the loans on the books of U.S. banks, what's going on with bank earnings, how much money the FDIC has on hand to resolve failing institutions, and more.

Credit Crisis Set to Intensify as Economies Begin to Crumble / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gyrations of financial markets ahead of the Labor Day weekend tested the patience of bulls and bears alike. As big swings took place in thinly-traded markets, I was reminded of Albert Schweitzer's words: “As we acquire more knowledge, things do not become more comprehensible but more mysterious.”

None the wiser, I also did not succeed in capturing a leprechaun and finding the gold during my visit last week to the Emerald Isle. However, the beautiful Irish scenery, hospitality and “open for business” attitude resulted in a very successful trip and will keep me going back in search of the “buried treasure”.

Credit Crisis Financial Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Christopher_Laird

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhere are we now in the credit crisis, and why isn't the massive Fed and ECB weekly lending working to loosen interbank lending? Why is the credit crisis not really improving? Where is this going next? We describe what may happen next as Credit Crisis II in this article.

Now that the credit crisis that started in 2007 is a year old, there has been a debate about whether the financial system will recover, or will the Western/world financial system end up like the Japanese financial system after the stock and real estate crashes in the 1990's. In that case, the Japanese banks more or less carried their tremendous losses for ten years, and Japan entered a mild but painful decade of deflation. To this day, Japan is battling some of the deflationary forces from that time.

When is the credit crisis going to end? How will we know? The credit crisis is getting ready to enter its second phase.

We also (sadly) re-visit Freddie and Fannie and examine the risks that they put into the markets.

Is This the Epicenter of the Biggest Financial Crisis in History? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCut Off Your Tail To Save My Face! refers to Aesop's tale about the wolf that has lost his tail in a trap. As he felt uncomfortable being so different from others in the pack, he tried to persuade his fellow wolves that they, too, should get rid of this cumbersome and useless appendage. He declared that "the tail of a real wolf is a barbarous relic". Read on to find out how an experienced wise old wolf answered him.

Broken Financial Systems & Dysfunctional Regulatory Mechanisms / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe highest functions of the financial system have finally broken to the point where smart and connected people are openly making comments. Shortages are acute, to the point where low prices for gold & silver, for instance, render supply as inadequate to meet huge growing demand that wants to exploit the artificially low prices. Even the USTreasury Bonds are enjoying artificially high prices, undoubtedly an extension of the colossal usage of US Federal Reserve lending swap facilities. They print new USTBonds and exchange new third world ( US ) government debt securities for acidic US mortgage bonds, some hastily cobbled into securities by ailing lending institutions from cratered mortgage loans portfolios. It seems the US Federal Reserve and the Euro Central Bank might accept bonds from English, German, and possibly Swiss sources soon. That seems fair, since they contributed to making vacant US mortgage bonds look attractive.

Fannie and Freddie GSEs are Too Big to Survive / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Michael_Pento

Wall Street's recent mantra—emblematic of its support for bailouts, especially of financial firms—is that Fannie Mae (NYSE: FNM) and Freddie Mac (NYSE: FRE) are too big to fail. I've written before about the potential problems associated with the G.S.E.s, but it is now quite clear how much trouble these companies are in, so I thought it was time to write a follow-up.

The Greatest Government Bailout of All Time / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are now witnessing a rapid-fire 1-2-3 chain reaction of events that's leading to the greatest government bailout of all time ...

Event #1. In the mortgage market, where this crisis first erupted, nearly half of all subprime loans issued in 2006 are now delinquent ... late payments on mid-quality "Alt-A" mortgages have soared 41.5% ... and delinquencies on prime jumbo mortgages are up a staggering 55.2% in the past 6 months.

Iraqi Bonds Safer than American Banks / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBloomberg is reporting Iraq Safer Than Ohio Banks Stung by Credit Crisis .
Iraq's bonds are delivering the biggest returns in emerging markets as oil export revenue bolsters government finances and violence declines.

The country's $2.7 billion of 5.8 percent bonds due 2028 gained 45 percent since August 2007, according to Merrill Lynch & Co. indexes. Investors demand 4.84 percentage points more in yield to own the debt instead of Treasuries, down from 7.26 percentage points a year ago. The spread is narrower than for notes of Ohio banks National City Corp. and KeyCorp, suggesting Baghdad may be safer for bond investors than Cleveland.

US Financial's and Auto's Dead Men Walking / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast Friday's letter was about the fact that it is not just Freddie and Fannie. There are other problems. The Weekend Edition and today's Wall Street Journal are filled with stories about the problems with Freddie and Fannie. The assumption in so many quarters is that they will soon need government assistance. The only questions seem to be when and in what form? Can this wait until a new president is in place? Congress is leaving town soon. Can it wait until the lame duck session?

As I have been writing for well over a year, the credit crisis is going to be deeper and take longer to correct than the main stream media and economists think. Losses at banks are going to be much larger, and they are going to bleed for a long time. That means we are going to see more banks failing.

Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation Defies Risk Suggesting Another Future Taxpayer Bailout / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Joe_Nicholson

At the heart of every financial transaction is risk. With few exceptions, the only way to increase what you have using investments is to shoulder some risk. This can work, growing your money and creating much more than id you had not done a thing. And if it doesn't work, you could lose all of the money you invested or just a portion.

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDON'T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA SAVE YOUR TEARS FOR YOURSELF - While bankers do control the issuance of credit, they cannot control themselves. Bankers are the fatal flaw in their deviously opaque system that has substituted credit for money and debt for savings. The bankers have spread their credit-based system across the world by catering to basic human needs and ambition and greed; and while human needs can be satisfied, ambition and greed cannot—and the bankers' least of all.

  • The US Banking System Is in Trouble
  • $500 Billion and Counting
  • Fannie, Freddie, and the Credit Crisis

Yet another crisis confronts us, as we will have to deal with the aftermath of a rather large number of bank failures over the next year, which is likely to overwhelm the ability of the FDIC to insure your bank deposits. Today we look at the banking system, the FDIC, and Freddie and Fannie. It's not pretty, but as realists we must know what we are facing.

Imminent Bank Failures- Credit Crisis Worst is Yet to Come / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe deepening toll from the global financial crisis could trigger the failure of a large US bank within months, a respected former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund claimed Wednesday, fueling another battering for banking shares.

Professor Kenneth Rogoff, a leading academic economist, said there was yet worse news to come from the worldwide credit crunch and financial turmoil, particularly in the United States, and that a high-profile casualty among American banks was likely.
