The End of Low Interest Rates Is Near / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Francois_Soto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLong Term Interest Rates To Double By 2020
We believe 10-Year U.S. Treasuries Government Yield is going to double over the next decade to eventually reach 10% by 2020. This prediction seems quite nonsensical as interest rates are hovering at their lowest level but secular financial environment changes occur most of the time when market participants are expecting it the least... And this might just be the case with long term interest rates!

Fed Chooses to Exit through Eye of Needle / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

Ben Bernanke is making sure the Fed’s exit strategy goes as easily as a camel can pass through the eye of a needle. Instead of choosing to just sell assets and unwind the amount of securities it holds, the Fed chairman is seeking to be creative once again—as he was in the buildup of its balance sheet--and increase the amount of interest it pays on excess reserves. He said this in a prepared statement for the House Financial Services Committee that was released on Wednesday, “It is possible that the Federal Reserve could for a time use the interest rate paid on reserves, in combination with targets for reserve quantities, as a guide to its policy stance, while simultaneously monitoring a range of market rates.”

Credit Card Interest Rates Hit 12 Year High Despite 0.5% Base Rate / Interest-Rates / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

Increased competition in the credit card market at the end of the 1990s meant rates started to fall, dropping to their lowest level in 2006.

Since 2006 as the economic downturn took hold, credit card rates have steadily increased, with the average rate today hitting a 12 year high of 18.8%.

Niall Ferguson: A Greek Debt Crisis is Coming to America / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOh that Niall!  Always stirring up trouble... Today might be the most entertaining set of posts I've ever put together - what a smorgasbord. Today we have an editorial in the Financial Times raising many of the same issues we speak out weekly in these virtual pages.  Don't forget your own homeland Mr. Ferguson; it's a mini US but without the reserve currency - this "grand experiment" of fighting debt with more debt should show up on your shores before ours.  The only thing that separates our 2 nations from the Greeks on a fiscal basis, is the printing press.  [Feb 5, 2010: Sovereign Risk Chart - Where Would the US Fit in, on Europe's Scale?]

By: Fresbee

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest 30 year bond auction have been disappointing with some already terming it as a failure.

There is almost a pall of gloom across the many who understand bond market mechanics and we will try to break down two of the most important auctions: 30 year and 10 year auctions, to see the trend and patterns in results. Quoting from Reuters on the latest 30 Year auction:

Forget Greece, the US Almost Had a Failed Treasury Bond Auction / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile most of the investment world focuses on the various ”senior officials” (none of whom seem to have actual names or positions) commenting on whether Greece will or will not be bailed out/ receive an emergency loan/ offered moral support, etc, a far more significant debt story is emerging in the US.

California Debt Crisis, Muni Bonds At Real Risk of Default / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCalifornia’s finances are a mess.  Credit default swap rates put California among the top ten most likely to default among major governments worldwide.

If you are a California resident and think California can solve it’s own budget problems, or if you think the US government will bail them out, then you might want to own California municipal bonds for the best fit tax shelter and the higher nominal yield.  However, if you doubt either of those, you may be better off owning a national or non-California muni fund, and accept a less tax efficient holding with a somewhat lower nominal yield, but with superior credit quality.

Front-Running the Fed in the Treasury Market, There's No Business Like Bond Business / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor some nine years I have been predicting that the economy is going to a recession morphing into a depression, using a purely theoretical argument. The essence of my argument is that the open market operations of the Fed cause a protracted decline in interest rates which is responsible for the hard-to-detect capital destruction affecting the financial sector no less than the productive sector. The immediate cause of the depression is the destruction of capital. The ultimate cause is the monetary policy of open market operations. The chain of causation is as follows.

Portugal's Debt Costs Rise to 11 Month High / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother reason to like the dollar (v the Euro) in the near term is the realization that quite a few member states of the European Union are in a word (BLEEP)'ed!  The irony is the United States is in just as bad of shape; in fact California has the same credit rating as Greece.  But the world still regards the US as the safe haven - even though when you put our unfunded liabilities on the balance sheet we are in horrific shape.
