Japan Quake Shakes U.S. Treasury Bond Market Get Ready for Financial Meltdown / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: LEAP

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBeyond its tragic human consequences (1), the terrible disaster that has just hit Japan weakens the shaky US Treasury Bond market a little more. In the GEAB No. 52, our team had already explained how the sequence of Arab revolutions, this fall of the “petro-dollar” wall (2), would translate during 2011 into the cessation of the massive purchases of US Treasury Bonds by the Gulf States. In this issue, we anticipate that the sudden shock experienced by the Japanese economy will lead not only to the halt in US T-Bond purchases by Japan, but it will force the authorities in Tokyo to make substantial sales of a significant portion of their US Treasury Bond reserves to finance the enormous cost of stabilization, reconstruction and revival of the Japanese economy (3).

Japanese Fallout May Hit U.S. Treasury Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: John_Browne

Japan is facing two meltdowns in the wake of its devastating earthquake. The first, and more critical, is the meltdown at the Fukushima I Nuclear Plant, 150 miles north of Tokyo. Surely, this is the greater near-term threat. But long-term, another threat looms, having to do with the Japanese government's response to the former.

Monetary Lunatics, Is QE3 Ahead? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAustrian School economists have often explained the business cycle using the metaphor of liquor or drugs. The expansion of paper money and credit gives a sense of exuberance, an economic high that leads to excessive risk-taking and ballooning production. But it can’t be sustained. There is a morning after.

Japan Natural Disaster to be Fought with a Tsunami of Credit / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Following the worst natural disaster in decades, the Japanese central bank will begin an instant round of easing to boost liquidity as Japan continues to recover after disaster.  The country, wrecked by an awful 9.0 earthquake and following tsunami, along with nuclear reactor exposure, will now cope in perhaps the worst way with economic fallout: 15 trillion yen in bond-buying, worth roughly $183 billion.

Options Trading Lesson on Triple Calendar Spreads / Interest-Rates / Options & Warrants

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the characteristics of option trades that is particularly vexing to the new trader is the almost infinite variation in which individual options can be combined to produce a seemingly infinite array of choices. These combinations of the various individual options are more than a theoretical exercise; each individual combination often produces a unique Profit & Loss curve.

E.U. Politicians Seek to Unload PIIGS Bonds / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Claus_Vogt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince last Friday all eyes have been geared toward the catastrophe in Japan. That’s indeed understandable. However, there has been another important development with far-reaching implications that is worth discussing today …

While the media was totally focused on the Japanese disaster, German Chancellor Merkel and her European brethren insidiously decided to make a major change within the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), the EU’s euro rescue fund …

U.S. Government Evermore Reliant on Foreign Investors to Finance Debt / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Kieran_Osborne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the Fed recently surpassing China as the largest owner of U.S. government debt, the U.S. remains heavily reliant on foreigners to fund the government’s ongoing fiscal largess. Geithner’s Treasury Department has firmly focused new issues at the mid to longer end of the yield curve (since Geithner assumed office, the average length of marketable Treasury debt held publicly has increased by nearly one year). Despite the Treasury taking advantage of the ultra-low interest rate and funding environment, there are substantial refinancing issues over the near term; moreover, many of these maturing issues are foreign owned. Should sovereign fiscal concerns spread to the U.S., in concert with the evermore attractive interest rates offered internationally, refinancing the U.S. debt could become increasingly difficult if foreign investors turn their backs.

Why U.S. Treasury Bonds Are No Longer the Interest Rate Market Bellwether / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Divining the direction of interest rates used to be a lot easier.

With the Federal Funds Rate, policymakers at the U.S. Federal Reserve would indicate precisely what they wanted the overnight lending rate between big banks to be. And the prices of U.S. Treasury securities of all maturities fell in line like obedient soldiers.

U.S. Interest Rates Are On The Launch Pad / Interest-Rates / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA few months ago, the chorus sung by the recovery cheerleaders reached a crescendo when expanding consumer credit statistics and surging US trade deficits provided them with "evidence" of an economic rebound. In declaring victory, they overlooked the very nucleus of this past crisis: namely, the enormous debt levels and bubbling inflation that created fragile asset bubbles. If they had recognized the original problem, they would have remained silent. In reality, only a reduction in US debt levels or increase in the value of the dollar would have signaled a budding recovery; but, thanks to the Federal Reserve and Obama Administration, there is virtually no way those results will ever be seen.

Fed FOMC Interest Rate Meeting March 15th Preview / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe March 15 FOMC meeting is nearly certain to end with no change in the Fed's current monetary policy stance with an indication that it would continue the second round of quantitative easing.  Market participants are keeping a close eye on the policy statement to assess if there is a shift in the Fed's view.  A change in the Fed's outlook, if any, will be visible if the phrase "exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate for an extended period" is modified.  Differences of opinion within the policy making committee about the quantitative easing program, involving a purchase of $600 billion Treasury securities, suggest a contentious debate.  In addition, an exit plan should be part of the agenda.

RIP Shadow Banking System, Long Live QEx / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have unwittingly become trapped in the snarled net of years of bad Public Policy. Like corporations that look no further than this quarter's results, our politicos never stop campaigning to start the tough task of ruling responsibly. A winning election simply represents 'rewards' and 'spoils' to all before quickly resuming the next campaign.

Three Flawed Fed Exit Options / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhether giving public lectures or teaching at the Mises Academy, I'm often asked whether Bernanke will be able to "pull this off." Specifically, can the Fed gracefully exit from the huge hole it has dug for itself?

Unfortunately my answer is no. In the present article I'll go over three possible exit options, and explain the flaws in each.

The Exponentiality of Municipal Costs (and Some Advice for Endowments and Foundations) / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe word in social media is "exponentiality" of growth. Webster's, American Heritage, and Microsoft Word do not acknowledge it, I don't know how to spell it, but this path-breaking discussion of rising municipal costs deserves a word from the future.

The pension costs of states and municipalities in years hence are often stated in a calculation of future liabilities. For instance, the future obligations of state and municipal pension funds are calculated (in frequently cited studies) at between $1.5 trillion to $3.5 trillion.

U.S. Debt and Deficits Ensure Violent Dollar Sell-Off Ahead / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Stockman writes: The Triumph of Crony Capitalism occurred on October 3rd 2008. The event was the enactment of TARP – the single greatest economic policy abomination since the 1930s or perhaps ever.

Like most other quantum leaps in statist intervention, the Wall Street bailout was justified as a last resort exercise in breaking the rules to save the system. In the immortal words of George W. Bush, our most economically befuddled President since FDR, "I’ve abandoned free market principles in order to save the free market system."
