What Happens When the Bond Markets Turn Against the US?

The following is an excerpt from the latest issue of Private Wealth Advisory. In it I outline the relationship between the Fed’s commitment to low interest rates, the scramble for high grade collateral driving the sovereign bond markets, and how the whole mess will eventually come crashing down. Private Wealth Advisory is a bi-weekly market

Why Bernanke’s Terrified of 2013

On December 12, the US Federal Reserve surprised yet again by announcing QE 4: a program through which it would purchase $45 billion of US Treasuries every month. Between this program and the Fed’s QE 3 Program announced in September, the Fed will be monetizing $85 billion worth of assets every month ($40 billion worth

How to Play the Fiscal Cliff Failure

Tonight between 7:30-9:30PM, the House will vote on Boehner’s “Plan B” for the fiscal cliff. At this point the entire exercise is one of looking busy for appearance’s sake: it wouldn’t bode well if the US were to go over the fiscal cliff because members of Congress were already on vacation. So the political class

Even US-Based Investors Need to Know About This

The markets in Europe continue to rally hard despite the fact that Europe’s financial system is totally insolvent. At the center of this mess is Spain, which now barely functions as a country. Spanish pharmacies, owed $500 million by the government, are running out of medicine in Valencia. Strikes have resulted in trash not being

What 2013 Means For You, Your Portfolio and the Economy at Large

Now that Obama has been re-elected, the BLS and other Government entities have begun to revise all of the positive data from before the November election downward. New jobless claims are back over 400,000. The amazing new home sales of 389,00 from October has been revised back down to 369,000. And a new record has

And That’s Checkmate, Ben Bernanke

Today the US Federal Reserve announced that it would be implementing QE 4: a policy of spending $45 billion per month buying Treasuries on the long-end of the yield curve until employment falls to 6.5%. So between this and QE 3 which was announced just two and a half months ago, the Fed will be

The US’s “EU Style” Negotiations Will Without a Doubt Take Us Over the Cliff

Ever since the EU Crisis began in earnest in January 2010, EU leaders have maintained the following strategy: 1)   Engage in endless meetings/ discussions, none of which resolve anything. 2)   Announce that the situation is resolved. 3)   Wait for the world to realize nothing has been fixed. 4)   Repeat. The prime example is Greece. There

Two Economic Developments Every Investor Needs to Be Aware Of

Last week I outlined the reason why we are very likely going over the fiscal cliff: there are little if any political incentives for the GOP or Dems to fix the problem; the best option politically is to let us go over the cliff and then offer targeted tax breaks in late 2013 early 2014

Three Charts Every Investor Needs to See

The market continues to track the same pattern it performed going into the failed debt ceiling talks of July 2011. As you’ll recall, then as is the case now, US politicians failed to reach a credible solution to the US’s debt problems. What followed was a credit rating downgrade and a market collapse: Here’s the

QE 3 Didn’t Work… Why Would QE 4?

The primary market forces remain in play. The markets are holding up on hopes of additional stimulus from the Central Banks. Some bulls are even calling for QE 4 at the upcoming Fed meeting, despite the fact that QE 3 was launched a mere three months ago and was open-ended (meaning it would not end

During the its first term, the Obama Administration thus far has proven itself in favor of increased Government control and Central Planning. That is, the general trend throughout the last four years has been towards greater nationalization of industries (first finance, then automakers and now healthcare and insurance), as well as greater reliance on our
