Understanding Contracts For Difference (CFD's) / InvestorEducation / Derivatives

By: Christopher_Quigley

ONE of the most innovative financial instruments that has been developed over the last decade or so is the CONTRACT FOR DIFFENCE, better know as a CFD. The explosion in the use of this product is one of the reasons why London , as opposed to New York , is becoming the financial location of preference for many financial managers and hedge traders. CFD's are not allowed in the U.S. due to legal restrictions imposed by the American Regulators.

Leverage and Liquidity being Thrown at the Global Banking System - The Morgan Legacy / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Captain_Hook

That's the extent of leverage being thrown at the financial system in keeping the Western banking model (he set the stage for way back when) – and better known today as ‘globalization' – afloat. If the bank run in England currently underway is any indication however, in spite of these efforts big changes are now at our doorstep. And if history is a good guide, even exploding derivatives growth and money supply will be unable to prevent the system from collapsing onto its own weight, even though increasing hyperinflation practices will be employed in an attempting to preserve current political regimes and power structures. Why is this the case? Because in the end change is inevitable, where those attempting to model themselves after J.P. Morgan (the bail out king) today will discover it's better to think in these terms at the beginning of a larger cycle (the Fed cycle began with its birth in 1913) than the end.

The Genesis of Over The Counter Interest Rate Derivatives / InvestorEducation / Derivatives

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMisinformation regarding the origin and genesis of the OTC Interest Rate Derivatives complex abound in the market. 

During the 1970's – after President Nixon took the world off the gold standard - the dramatic increase in the price of crude oil led to burgeoning balances of petro dollars [Euro-dollars] in the treasuries of banks involved in international trade. This immediately led to banks bolstering their treasury operations to deal with the influx of ‘inflated dollars'.

Diverse Asset Class Correlation and Leverage / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Fund managers and investors have been puzzled why prices across a wide spectrum of assets moved together last week - namely, down. I think it has everything to do with delevering. What is bringing about delevering? When a fund owns assets that are going down in value for some fundamental reason, say mortgage-backed securities whose underlying collateral are defaulting subprime mortgages, and the fund is levered, its creditors start to make margin calls.

Fools Gold - Risk of Shorting Stocks 130/30 / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Paul_Petillo

Risk is an interesting topic for investors. The balance between too much and the right amount are often fraught with problems, not the least of which is cost. But what happens when you openly embrace risk, stepping outside of the norm for the goal of increasing returns?

Pension plans have often found their ability to increase returns for their funds locked behind the rules of buying long. Buying long simply represents the purest marriage of research and instinct. Success was measured against traditional benchmarks such as the S&P 500 and it was against those indexes that fees for running funds were generally compared.
