Further Limiting Your Risk with CDs or Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s now official: As I suggested last week, Social Security recipients are not getting any cost-of-living increase in 2011. This marks the second straight year of flat monthly checks.

That fact, combined with the paltry interest rates on many traditional income investments, is certainly causing a lot of people major angst right now.

What Can We Expect Next from the Bernanke Fed? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRoger Garrison writes: On October 15, Ben Bernanke spoke at the Boston Fed's conference, "Monetary Policy in a Low-Inflation Environment." His remarks were long and ponderous and consisted mostly of "Fedspeak" along with seeming excerpts from a typical intermediate-macroeconomics textbook. He rehashed the Fed's statutory mandate of maximum employment and price stability — which comes from the Keynes-inspired Full Employment Act of 1946.

Bernanke Ponders The "Nuclear Option" / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke's speech on Friday in Boston could turn out to be a real barnburner. In fact, there's a good chance the Fed chairman will announce changes in policy that will stun Wall Street and send tremors through Capital Hill. Along with another trillion or so in quantitative easing, Bernanke is likely to appeal to congress for a second round of fiscal stimulus, this time in the form of a two-year suspension of the payroll tax. That's what he figures it will take to jump-start spending and rev-up the flagging economy. It could be the most radical intervention in history; Bernanke's version of “shock and awe”.

The Fed Has Gone Insane, So I'll Just Pick Up Some More Gold and Silver / Interest-Rates / Inflation

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy stomach was hurting, so I decided to take a little time off and soothe the old midsection with a few medicinal brews and a dose of pizza. The reason that my stomach hurt was because I had just read the stupidest economic essay, which was, unbelievably, penned by another lackluster university professor, and surprisingly printed by The Financial Times newspaper.

Will QE2 Go Corporate? / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Our friends on the bond markets have put their money where their mouths are with huge positions made in the past few weeks on short term government debt, demonstrating the likeliness that the Federal Reserve will force quantitative easing round two and buy up billions—maybe trillions—of dollars of debt.

A Plunge into a Monetary No Man’s Land / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe question keeps swirling around regarding the Fed and just how much Treasury paper they can buy from the market under current rules. Our guess is about $1.7 trillion. A good part of that may well be in notes, which will probably keep long dated rates low. On the other hand they may increase the current limit, and buy everything in sight.

America's Bright Future After U.S. Treasury Debt Default / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is easy to make a case for east Asia's economic success, but only over the next two decades. East Asia's economies are growing because their economies are being freed by decisions by politicians to reduce government regulations. But they all have two major problems: (1) the extreme boy/girl birth ratio of at least 120 to 100; (2) the threat of a rapidly aging population after 2025 or 2030. Economist Nick Eberstadt has been writing about this for a decade.

Investors Inflating the U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, bond prices were so high that a two-year government note yielded a miniscule 0.43%. To get more than one percent interest, you have to accept the five-year Treasury note yield of 1.32%. The ten-year yield? 2.60%. The 30-year long bond? A laughable 3.78%! Hahaha! This is insane!

Bernanke's Declaration of Independence, U.S. Treasury Junk Bond Future / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke gave a grim speech on October 4. It did not get media attention. That was because it was so grim.

It was on the looming fiscal crisis of the Federal government. There will be no easy way to avoid it, he said. Congress has to decide what spending to cut. This means that Congress must decide which special-interest groups to alienate. Then it must decide which taxes to raise. Whose ox will get gored?

The Fed’s Big Money Printing Tease Continues! / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Sy_Harding

The Fed is not saying whether it will or won’t.
After its worst August in years the stock market has rallied back strongly in spite of growing indications that the economic recovery has stalled and is now slowing at a disturbing pace. The catalyst has been the market’s expectation that the Federal Reserve will initiate a second round of policy ‘easing’ that will re-stimulate the recovery.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke is looking forward to 1932.

That's not a misprint. Actually, Bernanke is looking forward to a point when the challenges facing today's U.S. economy mirror the problems of that particular Great Depression-era year. And he wants that to happen for a very simple reason.

Fed QE2 Rhetoric Tied to Mandate of Full Employment and Inflation Stability / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial markets are largely convinced the Fed will embark on QE2 at the November 2-3 FOMC meeting.  Bernanke's speech on August 27 was the trigger, followed by the FOMC policy statement on September 21 and recent rhetoric of Fed officials Dudley, Evans, and Rosengren.  The dollar has lost significant ground vis-à-vis its major trading partners and others (see chart 1) in a short span to time.

Japan, U.S. Prepare For More Money Printing / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Stalling economies around the globe have prompted central bankers to increase their asset purchase or quantitative easing programs. As central banks print money to purchase assets, they increase the amount of paper dollars in the economy, which is often referred to as “inflating the money supply” or “debasing a currency”. We will continue to look for good entry points to add to our gold positions in numerous client accounts. Our current holdings in copper, silver, oil, and gold can help us protect our purchasing power should central banks be successful in their attempts to create positive inflation via currency debasement.
