The End of Bernanke's "End Game" / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent screed masquerading as the thoughts of a Nobel prize winner in economics, Paul Krugman excoriates those who speak of

fear: fear of a debt crisis, of runaway inflation, of a disastrous plunge in the dollar. Scare stories are very much on politicians' minds.

A ‘New Normal’ how Fed policy influences global financial markets / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: ECR_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

The consequences of the ‘new normal’ (coined by El-Erian of PIMCO) are not limited to the US, but have profound implications how we need to analyze the world economy and financial markets.

The time has passed that the rest of the world followed the US economic cycle closely. The growth dynamic in especially the emerging markets have become much more important, for the rather simple fact that US consumption growth isn’t the single locomotive for the world economy any more. And if we should believe economists, the US consumer will not regain this position in the foreseeable future. They will be too busy paying down debt and saving for retirement. Hardly any economist will disagree with this.

Banking in Darkness FDIC System Insures $7trillion Deposits with Dwindling Insurance Fund / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls submits : MyBudget360: Americans are offered close to zero percent interest rates to stuff their money into this banking vortex.

The American banking system is based on pure faith.  Usually when the topic comes up in conversation I will ask someone if they know what backs the green cash in their wallet.  One of the common responses is “there is gold in Fort Knox” or another typical response is that it is backed by U.S. assets.  Unfortunately both of these answers are incorrect.  In fact all of our money deposited in the banking system is backed by the pure faith in our U.S. government.

WITH THE Irish Government on track to owe a quarter of a trillion euro by 2014, a prolonged and chaotic national bankruptcy is becoming inevitable. By the time the dust settles, Ireland’s last remaining asset, its reputation as a safe place from which to conduct business, will have been destroyed.

By: Axel_Merk

After raising interest rates by 0.25% a month ago, the European Central Bank (ECB) left interest rates unchanged at today's meeting of its Governing Council. The press conference that followed was held in Helsinki; Finland just elected a new government that may block the aid package put together for Portugal. Adjusting to the Nordic spirit of not wasting time with small talk, ECB head Trichet was very much to the point with his answers:

U.S. Treasury And Fed Put Out Cash, Raising Fist Pumping Crowd For Ben / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Lee Adler at the Wall Street Examiner : The market waltzed through a week of heavy Treasury auction supply, but it did not have to pay the piper until Friday and Monday, May 2, when all the new paper was due to settle. Thursday’s settlement actually saw bills paid down by $11 billion. That and $16 billion in POMO gave the markets plenty of juice for Ben’s coming out party. The US Government, just like Colonel Kadaffy, sent out wads of cash to its minions to insure that cheering, fist pumping crowds would show up for Ben’s appearance before the scripted, adoring mob of ink stained wretches. It was sickening. And I’m not even talking about the so called reporters in the room with him. I’m talking about the security market apparatus. Anyone who dared protest that the market show had gone too far was beaten to a pulp. Even venerable bear David Rosenberg of Gluskin Sheff was cowed into submission.

Plummeting U.S. Dollar, A New Wave of Treasuries and Toxic Waste / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe believe there will be something similar to a QE3 by another name and the Fed will probably have to create some $2.5 trillion to buy Treasuries, Agencies, and toxic waste and perhaps inject funds into the economy. Japan certainly won’t be a buyer and probably will be a seller. China has indicated that they won’t be purchasers in the future either. The question also arises concerning the continued purchase of these securities by countries in the oil producing Gulf States, which are in turmoil. The three countries make up 45% of Treasury purchases.

Did Ben Bernanke Hint at QE3 During Fed Press Conference? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: While the first press conference ever held by U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke grabbed most of the headlines this afternoon (Wednesday), it was the post-meeting statement issued earlier in the day that grabbed my attention.

In particular, I zeroed in on the part about the policymaking Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) regularly reviewing "the size and composition of its securities holdings in light of incoming information and is prepared to adjust those holdings as needed to best foster maximum employment and price stability."

US Debt Limit Cognitive Dissonance / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding conflicting ideas simultaneously. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance. They do this by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and actions.[2] Dissonance is also reduced by justifying, blaming, and denying. It is one of the most influential and extensively studied theories in social psychology. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_dissonance )

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday's post-FOMC meeting analysis has two components:  policy statement and Chairman Bernanke's press conference.  Starting with the policy statement, the Fed held the federal funds rate unchanged at the narrow band of 0 to ¼ percent.  There were no dissents, although in recent speeches, Fed Presidents Plosser and Fisher (both voting members) had voiced their concern about imminent inflationary pressures.

U.S. Waking Up to Economic Realities / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week the financial markets were roiled by Standard & Poor's announcement that they will change their outlook on the fiscal health of the United States over the next two years from "stable" to "negative". The administration decried this decision as political. However, it seems the only political thing about this decision is the fact that it took so long. The Washington Post recently reported that the White House and the Treasury Department put tremendous pressure on S&P not to do this.
