One Trader Is Stunned By The “Staggering” Confusion In The Market

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Jun 22, 2017 3:10 PM

Wherever one looks there are disconnects… between bonds and stocks, between risk and uncertainty, between hope and reality. But, as former fund manager Richard Breslow notes, most critically, there is a divergence between data and Fed actions, and this time is different as central […]

Argentina issues 100-year bond. What could possibly go wrong?

sovereignman.com / by Simon Black / June 20, 2017

Apparently while I was in the air yesterday flying between Asia and Europe, the financial system proved once again that it believes in magic beans.

The latest absurdity is that the government of Argentina sold $2.75 billion worth of bonds yesterday afternoon.

It’s not strange […]

Junk-rated, deficit-plagued, inflation-whacked Argentina just sold $2.75 billion of 100-year dollar-denominated bonds. This was the first time ever that a junk-rated country was able to sell 100-year bonds denominated in a foreign currency, or any […]

Bonds and Related Indicators (and more macro discussion)

news.goldseek.com / By Gary Tanashian / Monday, 19 June 2017

The target for TLT continues to be around 129. Treasury bonds are in bull trends (remember back a few months ago to all the bond hatred in the media). How does an eventual decline in bonds square with what we just noted above regarding Q4 […]

Has The Fed Actually Raised Rates This Year?

investmentresearchdynamics.com / Dave Kranzler / June 15, 2017

The answer is debatable but it depends on, exactly, to which rates you are referring. The Fed has “raised,” more like “nudged,” the Fed Funds target rate about 50 basis points (one-half of one percent) this year. That is, the Fed’s “target rate” for the Fed Funds […]

$600 Billion A Year Eh?

market-ticker.org / by Karl Denninger / 2017-06-14

So the Fed is going to shed $600 billion a year in bonds, beginning this year and going to that level in 2018 yet both long-term interest rates and the stock market ignored that?

dollarcollapse.com / by John Rubino / JUNE 12, 2017

This cycle’s main bubble is in government bonds and fiat currencies, with a dash of large-cap tech thrown in for variety. But like a hurricane spawning tornadoes at its periphery, this Money Bubble is creating secondary bubbles like student debt and subprime auto loans that are […]

When Does Buying Gov’t Bonds Support Corrupt Governments?

armstrongeconomics.com / by Martin Armstrong / May 31, 2017

The president of Venezuela’s opposition-run Congress led by Julio Borges came out and accused Goldman Sachs of “aiding and abetting the country’s dictatorial regime” after a report that Goldman had bought $2.8 billion in bonds from the cash-strapped country at 31 cents on the dollar. […]

milesfranklin.com / by Andrew Hoffman / May 30, 2017

In last week’s “historic market manipulation, setting the stage for catastrophe” – as well as dozens of other articles and podcasts – I demonstrated, in painstaking detail, the gross misallocations, inequities, and fraud caused by the artificial “support” of “favored” asset classes like stocks, bonds, and […]

A Stock Market Crash: A Matter Of “When,” Not “If”

investmentresearchdynamics.com / Dave Kranzler / May 29, 2017

Given group-think and the determination of policy makers to do ‘whatever it takes’ to prevent the next market ‘crash,’ we think that the low-volatility levitation magic act of stocks and bonds will exist until the disenchanting moment when it does not. And then all hell will […]

Will the Crazy Global Debt Bubble Ever End?

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / MAY 28, 2017

There are multiple sources of friction in the Perpetual Motion Money Machine.

We’ve been playing two games to mask insolvency: one is to pay the costs of rampant debt today by borrowing even more from future earnings, and the second is to create wealth out of […]
