Asset Class Behavior Following Fed Interest Rate Cuts - Part 2 of 4 / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The dollar has been sliding since the Fed last week cut interest rates by a larger-than-expected half percentage point. Since then, disappointing U.S. economic data have stoked expectations that another rate cut is on the way. Lower interest rates, used to jump-start an economy, can weaken a currency as investors transfer funds to countries where their deposits and fixed-income investments bring higher returns.As the dollar sinks, consumers find imported products— Australian wines, Japanese cars or Chinese toys — are more expensive.

US Interest Rates Headed For 3.75% Over the Next 12 months / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are in a world far different than the one I learned about in economic text books. As I have written, the shadow banking system of hedge funds and CDOs, CLOs, PIPES, etc. have created a new financing economic reality far different than the traditional banking system was just 20 years ago. Does the Fed have the tools in its toolkit to deal with the new reality?

NOLTE NOTES Was the Fed Too Hasty to Cut Interest Rates ? / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Paul_J_Nolte

What a quarter – from the heights to the depths and back again, the quarter ended with the SP500 up a modest 1.5%, barely above the rate earned on bonds with a lot less gray hairs. Yields fell during the quarter, with short rates falling a full percentage point, while long-term bonds dropped a quarter percent. The news last quarter has been splashed all over the media – from liquidity crisis to real estate blues to just maybe a recession. But the money management business is never about what was done yesterday – what are y'all doing for me lately?

Why the Fed's US Interest Rates Policy Will Fail / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was only it was last August that I told readers not to be surprised if the fed cuts the funds rate. (US financial markets rocked — what is really happening ). Lo and behold, on September 18 the fed cut by 50 bps, reducing the funds rate to 4.75 per cent. The cut immediately ignited share prices, with the Dow Jones industrial average surging by 335 points. The only surprising thing is that anyone was actually surprised. That the first effect of a credit expansion is usually felt on the stock market seems to have eluded the commentariat 1 .

The Federal Reserve's Interest Rate Cut Does Not Help Americans / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Axel_Merk

In our assessment, the Federal Reserve's (Fed's) interest rate cut was wrong. Forget about the “moral hazard” of whether the cut would plant the seeds for further bubbles. Lowering interest rates is wrong because it will do few any good, but cause many a lot of harm.

NOLTE NOTES The Halo Effect Continues from the US Interest Rate Cut / Interest-Rates / US Economy

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The Fed surprised many in the markets and cut rates half of one percent (50bp) and the equity markets cheered to the tune of 400 Dow points. Either the Fed is VERY interested in heading off recession or there is more bad news ahead that they would like to be able to cut off before it built too difficult to overcome. The inflation news was certainly good – enough to provide the additional cover for the Fed to cut by 50bp. The housing numbers reported last week were certainly very poor and combined with a few corporate reports (FedEx and Circuit City) indicating that the consumer remains inthe struggling mode.

US Bonds Collapsing! Foreigners Abandoning the US Dollar! / Interest-Rates / US Dollar

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: If you thought the dollar's collapse would not affect you, think again! Here's what's happening:

First, U.S. bond prices are collapsing: In the two days after the Fed's rate cut, the price of the long-term Treasury bond plunged more than two and a half points, including the worst single-day plunge since September of 2003. This means bond yields, which move in the opposite direction, have surged.

Did the Fed Interest Rate Cut Fix the Credit Crunch Problem? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crunch

By: Tim_Wood

Or, Are Their Actions a Sign of a Bigger Problem?

I have said before in my newsletters that the Fed's biggest fear is deflation and I believe that the move earlier this week proves that point. As the stock market began to decline in August the Fed began extending the discount window, encouraged banks to come to the discount window, and cut the discount rate. I reported here a couple of weeks ago that based upon the 3-month T-bill rate and my Trend Indicator that we have entered into an environment in which lower short-term rates should prevail. So, the fact that a cut was made came as no surprise. But, the shock was that the Fed cut both the Discount rate and the Fed funds rate by a half point. In my opinion, this was a drastic measure and it serves to show the Fed's true colors and it absolutely confirms that they are scared to death of deflation.

How What the Fed Does, Doesn't Matter - The Apposite Economy / Interest-Rates / US Economy

By: Paul_Petillo

President Bush we now know is “Damn Certain”. Alan Greenspan, retired Fed Chairman now turned economic rabblerouser released his new memoir on Monday that could have been subtitled “Damn Certain too”. Ben Bernanke, the current Fed chairman and according to the two previously mentioned gentleman is doing a fine job, possibly a heckuva one, will no doubt publish his account one day of what is happening to the economy with a subtitle, “Damn Certain As Well”. These are, it seems, the only three people in America certain of anything and if that is the case, we are in more serious trouble than previously thought.
