Are We ‘Back from the Fiscal Abyss’ as Dallas Fed Claims? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRichard W. Fisher, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas,  was once one of the most expressive economist imaginable often using graphic and sensationalist words and expressions to get our attention when describing the nightmarish predicament’ and ‘monstrous challenge that has finally engulfed us. It was only a year ago that he warned that a ‘frightful storm is brewing’‘the mother of all financial storms’ – that could well plunge the U.S. government deeper into a ‘fiscal abyss’ causing the country to become submerged in a ‘vast fiscal chasm’. Fisher has not always been so dramatic in spite of saying recently ‘I am a Texan and Texans speak plainly and directly’ and he is not being very direct these days either.

Barrons on U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble Bursting / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is the second cover story in 5 months for Barron's on the bursting of the bubble in Treasury yields. I have been closely following the yield on the 10 year Treasury since December, 2008, and I would agree that Treasury yields are ripe for a secular trend change. However, this won't be confirmed until there is a monthly close over 3.43% in yield.

Credit Crisis Freeze Thawing Following Massive Reflation Efforts / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre the various central bank liquidity facilities and capital injections having the desired effect of unclogging credit markets and restoring confidence in the world’s financial system? This is precisely what the “Credit Crisis Watch” is all about - a review of a number of measures in order to ascertain to what extent the thawing of credit markets is taking place.

First up is the LIBOR rate. This is the interest rate banks charge each other for one-month, three-month, six-month and one-year loans. LIBOR is an acronym for “London InterBank Offered Rate” and is the rate charged by London banks. This rate is then published and used as the benchmark for bank rates around the world.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Recovery from Deeply Oversold Levels / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market recovered from deeply oversold levels last week.  Former support at 3% on the 10 Year Treasury Note will be the first major resistance level to watch.  The yield curve on the other hand maintained its steepness as yields declined across the maturity spectrum.  The economic data might look good from far but it is far from good so the main concern for the bond market is not an imminent recovery but a continued deterioration of the credit quality of government bonds as more and more of the excesses of this enormous credit bubble continue to migrate from the private to the public sector.  Look for real yields to expand.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Break Below Short-term Support / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market gave up a major support level 2 weeks ago as the 10 Year Treasury Note moved decisively through 3%.  Last week the bond market followed through with yields rising and prices falling further.  The stocks for bonds switch also continued unabated.  The yield curve also broke out of its trading range around 200 basis points to steepen toward the 230 level.  Long term rates rose from 2.5% just before year end to 4.27% as of last weekend.  That is a 71% rise in a little over 4 months.  That is about double the measly 35% rise in the stock market.  The record debt to GDP level maybe changing in its composition but it is not going away.  Any “green-shoot” that might be fixing to sprout will be nipped in the bud by rising yields.

Quantitative Easing Aka Counterfeiting Money / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael S. Rozeff writes: I begin by describing quantitative easing in technical terms. I go on to describe what it means when a central bank and its government engage in quantitative easing. What is quantitative easing? It is a central bank’s "purchase" of government securities (bills, notes, bonds) directly from the government.

The Clock is Ticking on the U.S. Dollar and Bond Markets! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is the beginning of the third edition of the “Fingers of Instability” series.  The first edition was in the winter/spring of 2007, the second in the winter/spring of 2008, and now the third in the spring of 2009.  The Fingers of Instability are ANALOGOUS to nature as seen in a sand pile.  In August 2006, John Mauldin (John@frontlinethoughts.com) commented on a study of sand piles by three physicists who created a sand pile with a computer program that dropped one grain of sand on top of another to study critical states:  NON-EQUILIBRIUM systems and uncertainty.  When I read this, I immediately realized the debt bubbles throughout the world were an analogy to these studies and explained a great deal about the last three decades of debt creation.  It reinforced my observations about Ponzi finance and asset-backed economies.  It explained quite nicely what was transpiring and what to expect at some point in relation to PILES of DEBT and the FAKE prosperity and growth caused by EASY MONEY and runaway credit expansion.

Bursting Of The U.S. Treasury Bond Bubble: Not So Fast! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe yield on the 10 year Treasury bond has spiked 10% in the past two weeks, and many are now jumping on the "bonds are the next bubble to burst" bandwagon. I was one of the first to be bearish on Treasury bonds calling for the likelihood of a secular trend change back in December, 2008 and a top in back in February, 2009. Higher Treasury yields are in our future, and it isn't a matter of if but when.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Break Below Support / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bond market gave up a major support level last week as the 10 Year Treasury Note moved decisively through 3%.  The stocks for bonds switch continued unabated, where it stops, nobody knows.  As the short end remains anchored, any back-up in long term rates causes the yield curve to steepen.  This is a good news – bad news story in the present environment.  It is excellent news for financials that can still afford to borrow short and lend long as they can earn a significant carry on that trade.

Sorry Ben Bernanke, You Don’t Control Long Term Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is disappointing to discover that the Harvard- and M.I.T.-educated Ben Bernanke did not learn while attending school that long-term interest rates must be set by the free market. Belatedly, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve is about to learn this valuable and costly lesson because these rates cannot be manipulated lower by any central bank for a great length of time.
