U.S. Treasury Bond Yields Explode Higher, Opportunity to Buy 10 Year Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market sold off a little more last week.  Not only did the Treasury market sell off quite sharply over the past few months, but other sectors in the fixed income space got hit even harder.  It appears that the market has been de-sensitized to all the sovereign problems of the basket case European countries.  Financial markets just shrug nonchalantly when headlines of another Irish or Greek bail-out come across the tape.  The sector that was perhaps even uglier than the European PIIGS over the past couple of weeks were the US municipal bonds.  In our new cozy world, investors will need to start getting used to the idea that government bonds might not be as infallible or default proof as previously thought and priced.  Meanwhile stocks remain close to 2 standard deviations expensive to bonds according to the Fed model I follow.

Roubini being Roubini, Central Banks Have Mountains More Leverage Than Lehman or Bear Ever did / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the market on another of its rocket ships as every asset on earth is backstopped by a central banker or sovereign government (which is in turn backstopped by a central banker), Mr, Nouriel Roubini is not getting the same air time or rock star status as he had a few years ago. That said, he is always an interesting mind to listen to ... and since we share many thoughts of the future, of course I want to share ;) As Nouriel says - who is going to backstop the central banks? Mars? ;) (if you look at their balance sheets they have mountains more leverage than Lehman or Bear ever had - but no problemo I guess as we have full faith and trust in their Socrates like actions)

Higher Interest Rate Yields Impact on Gold, Metals and Other Commodities / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Every precious metals investor should be concerned about China raising its rates and rising yields.  Rising rates in one of the fastest growing economies will affect precious metals investors.  Changes in the rates affect stock prices.  China is leading the world and we can see the fears are profound as sell offs this week were much stronger that any of the relief rallies.  If China’s market corrects then the commodity market which was fueling the equity market could experience a severe correction.  It is a domino effect.

How the Fed Has Fooled Us with Quantitative Easing / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: With a second round of "quantitative easing" underway, the U.S. Federal Reserve wants us to believe that it is doing its duty as the nation's central bank – promoting maximum employment, keeping a lid on inflation and making sure that long-term interest rates remain at reasonable levels.

This is known as the Fed's "dual mandate," since the inflation and interest-rate objectives are really the same goal.

The Republican Party enjoyed a major victory in the congressional midterm elections, winning back control of the House of Representatives and gaining seats in the Senate.  Republican leaders are giving the Tea Party movement a lot of credit for their success, and one of its high profile leaders, Kentucky’s Senator-elect, Rand Paul declared, “We’ve come to take our government back.”

Where Are the Bond Vigilantes? Rise of the Dollar Vigilante / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast seen in full force in the inflationary early 1980s, bond vigilantes were shadowy figures who were said to have rebelled and swore to keep central banks and governments honest by raising long term interest rates whenever the authorities kept their own interest rates too low, or let budget deficits grow out of control.

Yet now, with interest rates at near zero percent and budget deficits in the US stretching the boundaries of belief, not a peep.

European Debt Crisis 2, E.U. Has New Candidates for Bankruptcy / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Pravda

A problem enforcing experts to talk about «European debt crisis-2» has gathered. According to the poll made by Bloomberg agency more than 50 percent of respondents from among international investors consider default of Ireland as possible, almost 40 percent consider such a scenario as possible for Portugal. All that leads to impetuous cheapening of the European currency, experts say.

Ireland Being Forced to Become a Debt Slave Nation / Interest-Rates / Euro-Zone

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf Europe's single currency fails, so would the Union itself. The warning comes from the EU president, who was speaking ahead of the meeting of the Eurozone's finance ministers. Portugal has warned it could be forced out of the Eurozone, and Ireland is also being urged to use European bailout money to prevent bankruptcy. But Financial analyst Max Keiser says going to the IMF for help would be even worse.

Why Buying Bonds is a Bad Idea / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf there are two things that you can count on, it is that you have got to be pretty quick to get the last piece of pizza before I snag it, and that I am never remiss in telling people that buying bonds at these insanely-low yields is the Exact Wrong Thing (EWT) to do.

Unfortunately, my latest "student" was the cashier at the grocery store, who, it turns out, knows absolutely squat about what bonds are, although she admits that she has heard the word before.

Ireland Bailout Threatens to Reignite Euro Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Ireland's reeling banking system, and the government's reluctance to accept outside help, is threatening to reignite the European debt crisis that nearly led to the demise of the European Union (EU) and its currency last spring.

EU officials are trying to persuade Irish officials to shore up the country's devastated banking sector with a possible $100 billion (73.5 billion euros) aid package as Irish policymakers continue to insist that the financially troubled nation doesn't require a bailout.

Shocked that QE2 is Akin to Printing Money and Public Debt Monetization! / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery student who took Econ 101 and stayed awake during the lectures learned that the Federal Reserve has the power to create credit figuratively "out of thin air." The A-students also learned that the commercial banking system, not individual banks, under the fractional-reserve system that we and every other developed economy has also has the power to figuratively create credit out of thin air if the Federal Reserve first provides the "seed" money to do so. This is not unique to the Federal Reserve and the U.S. commercial banking system. This holds wherever there are central banks and fractional-reserve commercial banking systems. So, when there is an increase in the sum of Federal Reserve credit and commercial banking system credit, credit is created out of thin air, which is akin to "printing money."

Growing Signs of Renewed Debt Crisis in Europe / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStefan Steinberg writes: There are growing signs of a renewed debt crisis in a number of European nations, as bond yields soar to record highs and the continent’s economic growth stagnates.

The heads of leading European countries took the exceptional step of using the Group of 20 meeting in Seoul to announce that the European Union had confidence in the measures undertaken by Irish leaders to address the nation’s budget deficit. At the same time, the leaders of Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom issued a statement declaring that the EU had no plans for an additional bailout of European nations until at least 2013.

Sterilizing Money at the QE Corral / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are a lot of intricacies in the Federal Reserve's evil ways, especially as concerns creating $900 billion in the next six months in another round of quantitative easing, and one of them is explained by Daniel R. Amerman of DanielAmerman.com. He says, "There is something else essential for investors and savers to understand about the process which the Federal Reserve has just outlined. The Federal Reserve is not directly purchasing treasury bonds from the US government. Instead, US banks are purchasing the bonds from the US Treasury to fund the deficit, and then selling an equal amount of other bonds (likely at a nice profit) to the Federal Reserve."
