Easy-Money Fed Fueling U.S. Dollar “Carry Trades” / Interest-Rates / US Dollar

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA fascinating thing just occurred in the global interest rate market: For the first time since 1993, it became cheaper to borrow dollars than Japanese yen! The three-month dollar-based London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, slumped to 0.292 percent, compared with the yen-based LIBOR rate of 0.352 percent.

The Looming Global Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Bob_Chapman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat do you do after you have zero interest rates and you have flooded the world with money and credit?

The answer is you attempt to fight off higher interest rates and see if you can dodge the inflation bubble that follows. The commitment for this current fiasco to save the world’s Illuminist banks has already caused an official debt responsibility for the US of more than $23 trillion or about 40% of world GDP. That is staggering and it is official. We wonder what the real figure is? It is also wise to remember that the Federal Reserve, and other reserve banks worldwide, all international, are responsible for the carnage we are witnessing.

Treasury Bond Market Bullish Sentiment, Circumstances Are Different / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you have been paying attention the last couple of weeks, I have been warming up to bonds. However, earlier in the year, I thought that Treasury yields would head higher (i.e., bonds lower), and that this would result in a secular trend change. In other words, we would be embarking on a long period of increasing yield pressures. This did not come to pass although yields on the 10 year Treasury bond did reach 4.0%. Despite this failed signal, Treasury yields still have the technical characteristics of an asset poised to undergo a secular trend change, and by secular, I mean lasting years. But not now.

U.S. Treasury Bonds Trade Higher on Weak Economy / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market traded mostly positive all week and followed the recent pattern of one ugly Friday alternating with one neutral Friday.  This last one actually managed to eke out a small gain.  The financial markets are shaping up to be a diverging tale of three themes.  On the one hand we have the stock markets around the world relentlessly grinding to new highs, while on the other hand the bond market refuses to buckle as it continues to retain a strong safe haven bid.  In the mean time, gold is also breaking out to the upside with some conviction.  The yellow metal managed to achieve its highest weekly closing level ever at $1007 per ounce.

What Will Happen When Foreign Investors Dump U.S. Treasury Bonds? / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery time I talk about the risk of our foreign creditors selling off their U.S. Treasuries, I hear the same objection: These guys have no place else to put the money! They’ll ALWAYS buy our debt because our bond market is the most liquid, freest place to stash their money.

Junk Bond Defaults Worst Since Great Depression, Why Is the Stock Market Rallying? / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNumerous people have asked for an update to Corporate Bond Spreads Key To Continued S&P Rally.

Specifically, inquiring minds are interested in my statement "It will pay to keep one eye on the credit markets to help ascertain long-term equity direction. In August of 2007 the corporate bond market cracked wide open. Although the S&P 500 made a new high in November, the corporate bond market didn't. It was the mother of all warning calls that most missed."

A Plan for the Resolution to the Insolvency of the United States Banking System / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mansoor_H_Khan

The core problem of the United States' banking system (and maybe the world's banking system) is not liquidity but insolvency.   The liabilities of the United States' banking system exceed the value of its  assets.   The issue is not only the toxic assets (toxic mortgage backed securities,  toxic commercial real estate loans,  sub-prime mortgages, alt-A loans, adjustable loans likely to go bust, increase in prime mortgage default rates, etc) but also off-balance sheet liabilities (such as expected huge unaccounted for future derivatives losses).

Can a Central Bank Go Broke? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCentralized monetary authorities enjoy a privileged position in the current monetary system. People tend to view the economists and politicians at these institutions as demigods, individuals who if given enough resources will ensure that the economy continues an ever-advancing and smooth trajectory. However, unlike the Greek demigods of yore, today's central bankers are mere mortals who must work within the confines and constraints of the institution that they head.

The Interest Rate Cosa Nostra / Interest-Rates / Market Manipulation

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, Bloomberg News reported that a legal brouhaha has developed in Italy surrounding the municipality of Milan entering into a refinancing package, including retiring older existing debt and associated interest rate swaps, with a combination of new bonds and interest rate swap agreements designed to protect Milan against a rise in long-term interest rates, back in 2005.  This financing was arranged with a quartet of banks including J.P. Morgan Chase, U.B.S. AG, Deutsche Bank AG and Depfa Bank Plc.

Long Term U.S. Treasury Yields, Someone Is Going To Be Wrong / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor over 8 months now, I have been chronicling the plight of the 10 year Treasury bond. Based upon the "next big thing" indicator it was my expectation that yields on the 10 year Treasury bond would rise once there was a monthly close above a yield of 3.342%. This occurred at the end of May, 2009.
