US Bond Yields Fall as Economies Continue to Weaken / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The Treasury market has been stair-stepping higher since the middle of July. The US Long bond is closing in on the top of its annual range as the summer draws to a close with the Labour Day weekend upon us. It is time to take deep breath and have a look at what the big picture looks like. Naturally, we are most interested in how this picture will impact interest rates going forward.

US Treasury Bonds Range Trade Around 4% / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury market streaked to 3 positive weeks in a row even after higher than expected inflation data.

On the financial sector front, write-offs have now exceeded $500 Billion. Conservative estimates from established organizations such as the IMF are forecasting the final tab to be over a trillion dollars. Meanwhile more pessimistic forecasters such as Nouriel Roubini are looking for double that figure by the time it is all done. The take away from this story is that the write-offs are nowhere close to being finished. The flavour of the past week was auction rate securities.

US Treasury Bond Market Outlook / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The Treasury market managed to make it 2 positive weeks in a row even in the face of a stronger stock market.

Last week it was Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's turn to report losses that were out of this galaxy. Both of those stocks are now trading comfortably under $10 per share, but the Administration still maintains that there is no bailout necessary to save these mortgage behemoths. Credit spreads remain under pressure and liquidity is not improving. The Wall/Bay street analyst community is slow to react but the torrent of downgrades keep poring in as a result. On-going problems on this front are likely to support the bond market.

Bond Market Portfolio Building Strategies / Portfolio / US Bonds

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBonds are an important part of many portfolios, particularly for those investors in mid to late states of economic life, or for endowments or pensions.

Bonds are important for capital preservation and portfolio volatility moderation.  In some cases, for experienced traders, they can also be a source of capital gains, but they are normally used for conservative purposes.

US Treasury Bonds Auctions to Put Dampener on Bond Market Rally / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn spite of the bounce in the financial stocks, the negative news continues to pour in on the earnings (or lack thereof) front in that sector. Last week we saw Merrill Lynch in the news again as they wrote off another $5 billion+ in assets. Leading basket cases Fannie and Freddie will be rescued by the government but that will not be much help to the shareholders. Ongoing problems on this front are likely to support the bond market.

U.S. Treasuries: Worse than the US Dollar! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat's right. You read it correctly. Now why would I say something that even most “experts” would laugh at? Because I want to point out once again how so many out there are in the dark, even the so-called experts; you remember, the guys who missed this entire meltdown. Of course, now with so many banks in a dangerous position, I've seen many advisers change face and jump on the doom bandwagon.

US Treasury Bonds Remain Range Bound / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury market closed the week with slightly higher yields after a rally attempt that fizzled on Friday. With energy trading settling down somewhat – on the crude oil front anyways, the bond market started focusing on other news to drive the trading activity this past week. Earnings season on the stock side made for choppy trading along with continued problems in the financial sector. In spite of more grim news on the earnings front and a list of bankruptcy candidates in the financial sector that is multiple pages long, stocks started the week in relatively decent shape.

US Treasury Bonds at Risk Under Weight of Debt Moutain / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInstead of building its full faith and credit, the United States government is becoming increasingly faith less and is losing credit by the second while sucking individual Americans into ever-greater debt. Yet, against all expectations, Americans seem to be waking up

Wealth cannot be borrowed. For some not-so-unknown reason, Americans seem oblivious of that fact. The reason: they have been conditioned to view debt as ‘money' for decades on end, while TV commercials showed them since childhood that all you need for the good life is a credit card from so-and-so bank – and a golden one, at that.

Bonds Slump as Equities Recovery from the Abyss / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter extending its gains for a 4th week in a row, the Treasury market pulled back as equities recovered from the abyss. The trend of bonds and energy trading in lock-step remained intact as bonds now sold off as energy prices corrected sharply. There was a recovery in stocks – especially financials during the latter part of the week, so the reverse safe-haven flows pressed bonds lower. The sharp increase in headline inflation also added fuel to the sell-off. Real returns on Treasury bonds are now negative across the entire yield curve, as even 30 year bonds provide a -.35% return after adjusting for inflation. That is great news for spenders and the government (who gets to borrow massive amounts of money at ultra low rates) but not so good for savers.

Long-Term Treasury Bond Market Paradox / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Treasury Bond market can be confusing. Price inflation in the United States is intentionally made confusing. That keeps the public ignorant and poorly prepared to interrupt grand larceny and elite control of the printing press, the result of which has been a few decades of hidden confiscation of Middle Class work, wealth, and dreams. Long-term bond yields have many fundamental reasons why they should fall lower in the United States . They are interwoven and integrated. The US Economy is being killed by rising costs, in no way justifying higher borrowing costs. Yet amateurish opinions seem to coalesce in an absurd consensus. The Asian renaissance contributes mightily to both the impoverishment of America and its economic stagnation. Anyone who believes the US and Europe should share a consistent rhyming monetary policy is asleep at the analytic wheel. In the zero-sum game that is currencies, higher prices in the United States come with lower prices in Europe . Refer to marginal incremental movement in prices.

US Treasury Bonds Trend Higher Despite Inflation as Economy Continues to Weaken / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The Treasury market extended its incredible winning streak to 3 weeks in a row! The trend remained intact as bonds continue to strangely trade higher with increasing energy prices. There was no relief for the financial sector as the US stock market started the second half the same way it finished the first half: round the bowl and down the hole… Credit spreads remain under pressure and liquidity is not improving. In spite of crude oil continuing to set new highs week after week, energy stocks are diverging noticeably. The lack of M&A activity even in the sector is just another sign of how severely liquidity has gone missing.

Treasury Bond Investors Mysteriously Prepared to Receive Negative Real Returns / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Michael_Pento

It has become apparent to me that investors who continue to place money in the U.S. Treasury market don't have any idea how to protect themselves from inflation or how to achieve a real return on their investments. Even though inflation is running at a multi-decade high (according to official government numbers), we find that these fixed income investors were willing to send the yield on the 10 year note to an historical low of 3.38% on March 19th of this year. As amazing as that sounds in a world of 4+% “official” inflation rates, it was nothing compared to what happened just last month.

US Treasuries May Be Ending Recovery Rally Phase / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Once again perhaps we can derive a message from the action of the Lehman 20-Year T-Bond ETF (AMEX: TLT), which today failed to climb above yesterday's 6-week recovery high at 92.81 in what I thought would be an extension of the "flight to safety" syndrome in an otherwise treacherous equity market. No such action has taken place thus far this morning.

US Treasury's Retain Steepening Yield Curve Trend / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The Treasury market is on a tremendous winning streak: it is up for the second week in a row! Safe haven flows continue to dominate as bonds strangely trade higher in step with increasing energy prices. The financial sector continues to melt away in spectacular fashion as the US stock market looks to be heading for one of its top 10 largest monthly drops ever. Credit spreads remain under pressure and liquidity is not improving. Quarter end window dressing will definitely not help the sectors that have been beaten down at least for the next few days.

Fed to Keep Interest Rates on Hold for Months if Not Years / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury market finally showed some signs of life last week after a multi-week annihilation. It was a relatively quiet week in bond land as traders were more preoccupied with ever rising energy prices and ever increasing problems in the financial sector. After many months of deliberations the rating agencies finally got around to downgrading the bond insurers. 2 observations are in order here: 1, don't ever never ever never rely on the rating agencies for advice as they are severely, severely lagging indicators and they have a huge conflict of interest and 2, make sure you have a chuckle and quickly dismiss anyone who is trying to sell you on the idea of efficient markets.

Treasury Market Takes a Pounding, Dropping to New Lows for 2008 / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The Treasury market dropped to new lows for 2008 last week. The drumbeat of inflation concerns just became a little louder not only in the USA but also internationally. Oil and its surrogates keep trucking up to new highs and corn is certainly keeping pace with them. Central Banks are talking tough but until I actually see the Fed raise rates, I remain a skeptic as to how much they are really willing to do in order to reign in the runaway commodity inflation. Although I fully believe in peak oil, I also figure that the ongoing slowdown in the global economy coupled with surprising progress in the alternative energy space will eventually reign in the present energy price problems.

Buy Yield Curive Steeping- Buy Short-term Bonds, Sell Long-term, Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury market was under pressure most of last week. Then on Friday, with major help from exploding energy prices, the bond market soared as yields across the yield curve dropped significantly. I suppose a pop in the Unemployment Rate from 5% to 5.5% may have helped bonds a little as well. Early in the week our tragic hero Doctor Ben of the Bernanke and Federal Reserve variety told the financial world and anyone else who wanted to listen that the Fed was most certainly done cutting rates and emphatically supports the Treasury's stronger dollar policy.
