Greek Debt Bailout Might Succeed, If All Goes According to Plan / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Victoria_Marklew

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the second bailout agreement for Greece announced on Friday (July 22), the EU has stumbled toward a new level of institutional development. However, Greece still does not have a sustainable funding package in place; and the easing of contagion pressures on other Euro-zone members may be short-lived.

U.S. Political Leaders Playing Dangerous Game with Nation’s Debt Rating / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Leaders from both parties in Washington are playing a dangerous political game with the nation’s AAA credit rating. The first self-imposed deadline of July 22 to have a framework of a debt-ceiling deal in place has already passed. The second and firmer deadline of August 2 is a little more than a week away. Despite Standard and Poor’s warnings of a possible debt downgrade if realistic deficit-reduction plans are not agreed upon, the Wall Street Journal included the following in their update from Sunday night:

Trouble Brewing In Credit Markets / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCredit markets continue to signal either a weakening economy or outright recession yet equities refuse to pay attention. With daily market volume dominated by intraday traders with no concern about macro data this comes as no surprise. The danger becomes that equity markets have no ability at forecasting any longer. The Great Recession saw equities peak just two months before contraction began. We may in fact be watching the same horrific forecasting ability play out if the credit markets are accurate.

Moody’s Solution to Debt Crisis Shows Market Irrationality / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The bond rating agency that missed the subprime bubble, financial crisis, and is perennially late to the downgrade “party” has toughened its language with the US government.  Recently, the company warned that a debt ceiling is the true problem facing the US government.  Eradicating debt fights from government would be a sure way to better the United States’ global standing as a first rate borrower.

The Painful Consequences of a U.S. Debt Ceiling Increase / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: Failure to reach a compromise on a U.S. debt ceiling increase could result in an unmitigated economic disaster - one so unprecedented government and private analysts can't even accurately pinpoint all the potential consequences.

To avert this crisis, U.S. President Barack Obama wants a debt ceiling increase of $2 trillion, which analysts say would carry the country through the end of 2012. The president has moved the deadline for reaching an agreement up to July 22.

Pushing U.S. Treasury Default Beyond August 2 / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

If the federal debt ceiling were not raised by August 2, there still would be temporary means for the Treasury to keep paying all of its bills for a while. The Treasury could pull an FDR and revalue its gold holdings. Currently, the Treasury is valuing its gold holdings at $42.22 an ounce. By revaluing its gold holdings near the current open-market price, say at $1,575 an ounce, the value of Treasury gold holdings would rise by $400.8 billion. The Fed could write up the Treasury's deposit account by that much and the bills could be paid for a bit longer even without an increase in the debt ceiling.

Moody's Warning Edges U.S. Credit Rating Closer to Downgrade / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: With time running out on a deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, Moody's Investors Service turned up the heat by warning Washington's bickering politicians that any missed debt payments will result in a credit rating downgrade.

Such a downgrade would have economically catastrophic consequences, roiling stock markets worldwide, sharply increasing borrowing costs for the U.S. government as well as businesses, and derailing an already-anemic economic recovery.

It Ain't Money If I Can't Print It! / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been forecasting with near certainty that QE2 would not be the end of the Fed's money-printing program. My suspicions were confirmed in both the Fed minutes on Tuesday and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's semi-annual testimony to Congress yesterday. The former laid out the conditions upon which a new round of inflation would be launched, and the latter re-emphasized - in case anyone still doubted - that Mr. Bernanke has no regard for the principles of a sound currency.

History of U.S. Debt Defaults / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn S. Chamberlain writes: On July 13th, the president of the United States angrily walked out of ongoing negotiations over the raising of the debt ceiling from its legislated maximum of $14.294 trillion dollars. This prompted a new round of speculation over whether the United States might default on its financial obligations. In these circumstances, it is useful to recall the previous instances in which this has occurred and the effects of those defaults. By studying the defaults of the past, we can gain insights into what future defaults might portend.

Europe's Debt Default Crisis: It's the CDS, Stupid / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The constraints imposed by market forces [on government deficits inside a single-currency union] might either be too slow and weak, or too sudden and disruptive."   - The Delors Committee report on European monetary union, getting it exactly right in 1989

GREEK BONDS have lost half to three-quarters of their face value. Six national strikes have all ended in violence already this year. In the three months to April, public investment spending fell 42% from the start of 2010, but total spending still rose – and tax revenues sank – forcing the budget deficit still wider as the economy shrank 5.5% year-on-year.

Moody's Puts U.S. AAA Credit Rating at Risk of Downgrade / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt long last the bond vigilantes have a spotlight on US debt. Please consider Japan Stock Futures Fall as Yen Rises as Moody’s Reviews U.S Credit Rating

Moody’s Investors Service put the U.S., rated Aaa since 1917, under review for a credit-rating downgrade for the first time since 1995 on concern the government’s $14.3 trillion debt limit will not be raised in time to prevent a missed payment of interest or principal on outstanding bonds and notes even though the risk remains low. The rating would likely be reduced to the Aa range and there is no assurance that Moody’s would return its top rating even if a default is quickly cured.
