Nothing Will Change Until the Great Debt Default, Will you be Prepared? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Wall Street Journal ran an article the likes of which I have never seen. "The Magnitude of the Mess We're In." It was written by five well-known economists. It warns readers about a series of highly destructive outcomes of the federal government's present fiscal policies. The article says that these problems are close to being unmanageable.

Q.E. to Infinity Unintended Consequences / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is an intense debate going on in the first-class cabin of Economics Airlines about the direction in which our plane should be pointed. And while those of us back in the cheap seats don't get to help decide, knowing where we will land is of intense interest to all of us. This week we listen in on the debate, in the form of speeches and academic postings passed back from first class for the rest of us to read. This type of debate also occurred when Greenspan held rates down at an abnormally low level for a very long time. The unintended consequence of that move was a housing and debt/leverage bubble. Are there potential unintended consequences to Bernanke's current monetary policy, which some are calling Quantitative Easing Infinity? I suggest you put up your tray tables and fasten your seatbelts – the ride could get bumpy as we explore QE Infinity: Unintended Consequences.

Bond Market Investors Set up for a Shock, Major Top in Bond Markets / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDuring market pullbacks, financial advisors use a boilerplate response: "Let's rebalance the portfolio." Investors have heard that one for years.

The recommended allocation varies depending on a client's age and risk tolerance, but it typically involves shifting funds from stocks to bond holdings.

The Trouble with Printing Money, QE3 Reflects Colossal Failure to Address Our Predicament / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Dr_Martenson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor a while now, I have been expecting a coordinated, global central bank action that would seek to print more money out of thin air, or "QE" (quantitative easing), as it is now called.  Now we have two of the most important central banks, that of the U.S. (the Federal Reserve) and in Europe (the ECB) having committed to open-ended, limitless QE.

ECB Game Over, Draghi and Bernanke’s Worst Nightmares Are About to Unfold / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke and Mario Draghi must be absolutely terrified.

These two men, in the last two weeks, have both initiated open-ended bond buying programs. The purpose of these programs, aside from keeping insolvent banks in business, was to scare the markets into believing that no matter what happens, the Central Banks will be able to step in and support the financial system.

QE3 Blowing Up the Debt Bubble / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt begins . . . the latest downgrade of credit worthiness for the former titan reserve currency. As reality strikes, financial confidence goes negative. Forget the pump and dump equity markets, just how long will it be before the bondholders demand higher interest rates to cover their risk? Ben Shalom Bernanke answers this concern with intentions to keep rates near zero. Pure escapism out of the strange world of banksters’ hubris - faces the rating agencies.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Major Top Report / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBOND YIELDS ARE POISED TO BEGIN RISING ON THE WAY TO DEFLATIONARY CREDIT CRISIS

U.S Treasury Bonds Our long term outlook for interest rates on U.S. Treasury securities has been a contrary opinion for many years. Most commentators have been expecting either economic expansion or Fed-induced inflation to push bond yields higher. Conquer the Crash predicted that long term rates on AAA-rated bonds would fall much further as the monetary environment shifted from lessening inflation to outright deflation. Figure 1 shows the forecast from 2002, and Figure 2 updates the graph to the present.

Quantitative Counterfeiting Forever / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke announced that the central bank would launch an unprecedented form of quantitative easing. This “new and improved” iteration of money printing will be without limit and duration. The Fed Head launched QE III ($40 billion of MBS purchases every month) on September 13th and stated that it will remain in effect until the labor market “improves substantially.” He also promised that, “The Committee will continue its purchases of agency mortgage backed securities, undertake additional asset purchases, and employ its other policy tools as appropriate until such improvement is achieved…”  In other words the Fed will continue to counterfeit money until there is a substantial decline in the unemployment rate.

Federal Reserve Flirting with a New Paradigm Shift / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Darah_Bazargan

It has been my long expectation that the Federal Reserve would uplift a sagging financial system by way of injecting more liquidly into our economic bloodstream.

On Thursday September 13th, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke announced Quantitative Easing 3, initiating the purchase of 40 billion dollars in mortgage backed securities per month on an open-ended basis.

QE3 Fed Panic / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn September 13, the Fed announced QE 3. Pimco head Bill Gross tweeted Bernanke plans to buy mortgages "till the cows come home."

It's open-ended along with near zero short-term rates. His move suggests desperation. What does he know, we don't, and why now? Things aren't as they seem. They're worse.

Bernanke's Operation Twist Morphs into Operation Screw / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith yesterday's Fed decision and press conference, Chairman Ben Bernanke finally and decisively laid his cards on the table. And confirming what I have been saying for many years, all he was holding was more of the same snake oil and bluster. Going further than he has ever gone before, he made it clear that he will be permanently binding the American economy to a losing strategy. As a result, September 13, 2012 may one day be regarded as the day America finally threw in the economic towel.

Fed QE 3 Program is Short Term Thinking For Long-Term Pain / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Graham_Summers

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday the Fed announced QE 3: an open ended program through which the Fed will purchase $40 billion worth of Mortgage Backed Securities every month until it decides that the world is right again.

The implications of this are severe. However, the first question we have to ask is, “why now?”

Marc Faber: Fed QE3 Policy Will 'Destroy the World' / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarc Faber, publisher of the Gloom Boom & Doom Report, told Bloomberg Television's Betty Liu on "In the Loop" today that "the fallacy of monetary policy in the U.S. is to believe this money will go to the man on the street. It won't. It goes to the Mayfair economy of the well-to-do people and boosts asset prices of Warhols.

Faber said that he is "very happy. Very good for the Fed. Congratulations, Mr. Bernanke. I'm happy. My asset values go up but as a responsible citizen I have to say the monetary policies of the U.S. will destroy the world."

Euro Crisis and Holland Mortgage Debt, Those Dutch Tulips Ain't Looking All That Rosy / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, the German Supreme Court decision is through, and it looks positive at a first superficial glance, so what could go wrong from here?

Sorry to break it to you, but plenty could. It’s amusing to see that decisions like these, the German court one or last week’s Draghi bond buying announcement, are seen as being positive for markets and/or entire economies, while in fact the only reason they have to be taken in the first place is that the situation is getting worse all the time.

Sky No Longer the Limit for U.S. National Debt / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Pravda

The U.S. national debt has hit a new record. It has long been clear that no one can handle the problem. Therefore, the term, which the U.S. will need to come close to the legislative ceiling of this indicator, remains the main topic for speculation and forecasts. It is possible that the Americans will make it during the remaining several months of 2012.

Why ECB Bond Buying Undermines Democracy; Is Draghi Above The Law? / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA post on the the Fibs and Waves blog by "Blankfeind" outlines the actual legal case against the OMT. I believe the case is rock solid. How the German constitutional court rules in two days is another matter.

Please consider The ECB Thumbs Its Nose At The Law.

On September 6th, the ECB announced its Outright Monetary Transactions program, known as OMT. Justified as a means for the ECB to repair monetary policy transmission and to recreate the singleness of monetary policy for the euro area, the OMT offers an unlimited commitment by the ECB to purchase short-term (one to three year) sovereign debt in the secondary markets for sovereigns who agree to certain conditions.
