Senate Republicans Bungle Their Interrogation of Janet Yellen

mises.org / Brendan Brown / FEBRUARY 27, 2015

In terms of theatrical impact, the first performance of the Republican majority in the Senate responding to semi-annual testimony from Fed Chair Yellen was a dud. That is bad news for US monetary reform.

The root cause of the theatrical failure is that a winning strategy […]

Greenspan: “The Stock Market Is Great”, But The Economy Feels Like In “The Late Stages Of The Great Depression”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 02/26/2015 17:50

While conflicting economic data leaves hope for both buills and bears, Alan Greenspan warns that, unlike Yellen, “US economic growth is not strong.” He then slays another pillar – suggesting the exuberant job growth is anything but (as he focuses on weak productivity as he pinpoints […]

The Pathetic ‘Talk Therapy’ Of Janet Yellen

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / February 26, 2015

What in god’s name does Janet Yellen think she is doing? Just a few weeks ago she established the ridiculous Fedspeak convention that “patient” means money market rates will not rise from the zero bound for at least two meetings. Now she has modified that […]

HIDEOUSLY OMINOUS DEVELOPMENTS, AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE

blog.milesfranklin.com / by Bill Holter / February 26th, 2015

It’s Wednesday evening, and I can’t help pondering what the world will like when TPTB lose control of “last to go” markets like the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” and paper gold and silver. Care of the “weapons of mass financial destruction” unleashed by Wall Street and […]

“Faith In Fed Abilities” Are Too Firmly Embedded In The Investor Class

zerohedge.com / by Guy Haselmann via Scotiabank / /2015 12:43

Violets aren’t Blue

Long dated Treasuries will rally from here; particularly into the spring as we exit the March refunding. The shortage of high-quality positive-yielding bonds will only be exacerbated further by the ECB’s QE program which begins on March 1st. Presently, there are $4 […]

Is the US Really Experiencing Deflation?

marctomarket.com / by Marc Chandler / February 26, 2015

US prices are falling. The 0.7% decline in US consumer prices was the largest monthly drop since December 2008. Consumer prices in January fell 0.1% from a year ago. The last time the year-over-year CPI was negative was when the US economy was just beginning to […]

Dollar-Bloc Stays Bid, Euro and Yen in Well-Worn Ranges

marctomarket.com / by Marc Chandler / February 26, 2015

Sterling and the dollar-bloc currencies are firm, but the euro and yen remain confined to well-worn ranges. The US dollar is vulnerable to poor economic news in the form of a negative year-over-year CPI print, especially given that Fed hike expectations have not been rebuilt […]

SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts – The Technical Fundamentals

jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com / 25 FEBRUARY 2015

This market feels heavier than it looks.

It is hard to judge ‘sentiment’ because the market is being almost totally dominated by a few institutions, a handful of very large trading desks, and a swirling crowd of HFT hit and run predators.

So given this concentration of power, the […]

Junk Bonds “Extremely Overvalued”: Bond Guru Fridson

wolfstreet.com / by Wolf Richter / February 25, 2015

Fed Chair Janet Yellen was outright chipper in praising the progress of the US recovery, unequivocally the result of the Fed’s finely crafted and delicately applied multi-year handiwork, though she also saw some minor wrinkles still to be ironed out.

What mattered to the markets, it […]

dollarcollapse.com / by John Rubino / February 24, 2015

Business Insider’s Myles Udland just posted a chart, drawn from research by the Bank of England, showing interest rates for the past 3,000 years. And for all those who’ve been feeling like today’s “new normal” is actually profoundly abnormal, here’s your proof. It turns out that […]

It’s all in Interest Rate Expectations

traderdannorcini.blogspot.com / Dan Norcini / Tuesday, February 24, 2015

I am referring to the gold price in the above title. By that I mean, whatever market participants think as to when the Fed is going to make the first move higher, will determine whither gold goes. You tell me what interest rates will be in […]

marctomarket.com / by Marc Chandler / February 25, 2015

The Market Is A Red Herring… Distracting Us From The Reality Of The Economy

zerohedge.com / by Thad Beversdorf / 02/25/2015 08:44 -0500

Janet Yellen once again repeats that the economy is “looking stronger” although still it has yet to manifest into actual strength. In fact, it is still so weak that the Fed cannot even suggest that rates will raise anytime over the next several FOMC meetings. In […]

What To Do While Waiting to End the Fed

mises.org / John P. Cochran / FEBRUARY 25, 2015

There is a sliver of good news on the central banking front. Given the Fed’s poor performance before and after the 2007–08 financial crisis and Great Recession, and its now recognized 100 year history of failure, at least some members of Congress, even without Ron […]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/25/2015 07:00 -0500

If The Fed Continues This, “There Won’t Be Any Active Managers Left In 5 Years”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 02/24/2015 21:15

As the dash-for-trash continues in US equities, Neuberger Berman sums up the state of investing currently,“there has certainly been little reward for owning high-return, superior business models that are conservatively financed,” as Bloomberg notes, Fed policy has had the “unintended consequence” of boosting the stocks of companies […]
