Global trade study validates the recessionary decline in Baltic Dry Index

One of the most important, but usually least talked about indicators that denotes the strength of the economy is the Baltic Dry Index (BDI).  This is a measurement that tracks shipping costs and quantities and is a strong signal for whether trade and exports are rising, or in decline. And a new study out on Aug. 28 by the World Trade Monitor has now validated the recessionary numbers of the BDI, and shows t ...

Fed may have to enact QE4 just to buy up bonds being sold by China

In an interesting observation made on Aug. 27 by analysts at Bank of America, Chinese dumping of dollar reserves (Treasuries) may create such an impact on the United States, that the Fed would have to throw away any thought of raising interest rates and instead look very hard at implementing a new round of quantitative easing just to soak up the estimated $1.1 trillion that will be dumped onto the markets. ...

Is the ‘flight to safety’ in treasuries really the result of Fed mopping up China’s dollar dump?

Over the past two weeks we have seen the U.S. 10 year treasury roller coaster from a level of 2.2% on Aug. 17, to a low of 1.95 a week later.  Yet since that time the 10 year has moved back above the 'Mendoza line' to its current position of 2.12%.  And of course, the common response in the mainstream media to this drop in yield and spike in buying was due to a 'flight to safety' as traders exited the equit ...

BREAKING: CENTRAL BANKS RIGGING STOCK MARKETS Just Like China Did Before COLLAPSE

VIA| After last week's stock market chaos the trading started and saw a 1,000 point plunge, just to head back to 500, then 350, then 666, as the numbers bounce up and down like a yoyo, but we see over 4,500 crash events as trading is halted and resumed while it is "impossible for regular traders to step in, requiring central banks to buy via the CME's Central Bank Incentive Program, to restore some market s ...

Black Monday: No matter the spin, markets built on Fed policy instead of economy

In the past we have written about, and shown the charts of what has happened in the stock markets since 2008 after the Fed began their policies of near zero interest rates, and massive quantitative easing.  In fact, it was a case of simple analysis to realize that the rise and fall of the equity markets over the past seven years have been intrinsically tied to infusions of new money printing, where stocks a ...

Bankrupted Nobel prize winning economist says economy needs more debt

When the Nobel committee handed out their prize for Economics to Paul Krugman back in 2008, the selectors must have thought they were giving it to Jack Klugman as a life-time achievement award, because the sad fact is the man is little more than the butt of jokes when it comes to speaking out on financial and economic matters today. And as the equity and bond markets start to crack in the U.S. during this m ...

With the final vote made last night to accept the parameters of the Greek bailout deal, the people of Greece are expected to have to endure another decade of high unemployment, capital controls, low GDP, and of course austerity.  But as with most societies that finally recognize that their governments and financial systems no longer work for their benefit, the rise of black markets and alternative means of ...

Yes Virginia, contrary to ECB rhetoric there will be a Greek depositor bail-in

After Greece changed course back in July and accepted the Troika's demands for austerity measures to receive a new bail-out, the assumption was that only bond holders would be subject to any sort of risk that might see their securities decline, or perhaps even fall to zero.  Yet as one knows in the financial industry, and in the case of central bank policies, you can never fall asleep believing that your mo ...

Eight years later, the Housing bubble morphs into Rent bubble

Prior to the bursting of the artificially created Housing bubble in 2007, home prices had skyrocketed due to cheap money, low interest rates, and government policies that mandated banks lend to people who couldn't afford it.  And with many families remaining cautious or unable to purchase a home after millions of Americans had lost theirs during the run of foreclosures following 2008, renting in the U.S. ha ...
