The QE Backdraft

market-ticker.org / by Karl Denninger / January 22, 2015

I know I’ve pontificated on this before but it bears repeating.

“QE”, and lower interest rates in general, are often said to be intended to “stimulate the economy” and “raise inflation expectations.”

Do they? Can they? And if they do, what is the mechanism?

The “what […]

The Data Doesn’t Lie – Here’s What’s Really Driving Interest Rates!

zerohedge.com / by Thad Beversdorf via First Rebuttal blog on 01/22/2015 14:35

So Hilsenrath claims a little birdie (Fed insider) told him that rates will be raised later this year. I expect the Fed is just jerking him around. There is nothing fundamentally or otherwise to suggest rates will move up. I’m not […]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 01/22/2015 08:16 -0500

Nothing…

“Differenty this time?” or “Einsteinian Insanity’?

When This Ends, Everybody Gets Hurt

peakprosperity.com / by Chris Martenson / Wednesday, January 21, 2015, 10:45 PM

Central banks around the globe have taken us all into unchartered territory, where the possible paths boil down to a binary outcome: either it all works out or it doesn’t.

Unfortunately, the ‘it all works out’ outcome has a very low probability […]

The Next SNB? Goldman Warns Bank Of Japan “At Risk Of Losing Credibility”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 01/21/2015 07:54 -0500

How The ECB’s QE Is About To Send The Most Deflationary Signal Ever

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 01/19/2015 19:39

With every passing day, negative 10Y yields across the developed world’s bond market, and not just Switzerland, increasingly appear to be a question of when not if. Paradoxically, the main reason for this long-end deflationary crunch will be an action that the ECB will undertake in […]

The ECB Will Fail Given The “History Lessons Of US And Japan”, Warns Deutsche Bank

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 01/18/2015 08:31

Recall that the stated purpose behind the reason why Mario Draghi’s ECB is about to launch a European government debt monetization program ranging between EUR500 and 1000 billion is to halt deflation, spark credit creation and rekindle inflation. Alas, if that is indeed the case, then […]

theburningplatform.com / By Jim Quinn / January 16, 2015

Government data reports are so funny. The blaring headlines today tells us that prices dropped in December. We are all saving billions from the drop in oil and gas. Hallelujah!!!

The corporate MSM never digs into the numbers to get the real truth. These reports and […]

Here’s Why Blowout Retail Sales Will Cause Market Blowback Next Month

wallstreetexaminer.com / by Lee Adler • January 15, 2015

Markets top out when the news is good. Good news gives central banks the excuse they need to pull the punchbowl. In that respect, yesterday’s “bad news” on retail sales was bad news for stock market bears.

But behind the headline numbers, which were grossly […]

Only 4 out of 10 Americans has enough in their savings to pay for an unexpected expense: Half of the country is living paycheck to paycheck with no retirement plans.

mybudget360.com / by mybudget360 / January 13, 2015

There is little motivation to save when your local bank is offering close to zero percent on your savings account. And most Americans simply do not invest in the stock market. When it comes to saving money it is crucial to get into the habit of putting […]

Suddenly, Not A Bad Environment For Gold Miners

dollarcollapse.com / by John Rubino / January 13, 2015

A few years ago (when the world was very different) veteran mining analyst Jay Taylor told me something that seemed counterintuitive: Deflation can actually be a good thing for the gold and silver mining business — if the prices of mining inputs like oil fall faster […]

Which Central Banks Will Do QE After The ECB?

zerohedge.com / via Societe Generale’s FX & Rates Corporate Research on 01/13/2015 19:45

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 01/13/2015 09:26 -0500

The Greek general election is just around the corner, and as expectations for a Greek overhaul, if not outright Grexit, rise so does the rhetoric by the man who, barring an act of god or Diebold, will be the next Greek premier: Alexis Tsipras, who […]

marctomarket.com / by Marc Chandler / January 13, 2015

The US dollar’s rally is indisputable. Even the perma-dollar bears have been silenced. However, judging from various media reports, the risk is in the other direction now. Many seem to be exaggerating the dollar’s rise.
