Buckle your seat belts. Bob Moriarty, 321gold.com founder, pulls no punches in his latest exclusive interview with The Gold Report.

He believes precious metals and other �things� are the only safety nets. The Gold Report: Bob, what do you think of the Fed�s latest move�cutting to a flexible zero to a quarter rate? Where do you see us going? Bob Moriarty: We are to the point where we are about 14 feet from going over the edge of Niagara Falls. We haven�t gone over the edge yet; we haven�t gone ...
stake in the company (i.e., they are owners), whereas bondholders have a creditor stake in the company (i.e., they are lenders). Another difference is that bonds usually have a defined term, or maturity, after which the bond is redeemed, whereas stocks may be outstanding indefinitely. An exception is a consol bond , which is a perpetuity (i.e., bond with no maturity).

Bond Binge Hangover
Normally the Federal Reserve adjusts short-term seductiveness rates to assuage the mercantile cycle. Even if short-term seductiveness rates have been really low, as they have been during present, long-term seductiveness rates have been typically significantly higher. Recently the Fed implemented the brand new process to revoke long-term seductiveness rates to roughly rare levels. This process valid to be really effective: the produce of long-dated US supervision bonds, i.e. the long-term seductiveness rate, was during the 50-year low in late 2008 as well as is still really tighten to those levels. This process is partly an try ... market research, surveys and trends
Treasury Bonds, Safe is a Relative Concept
2008 may well be remembered as the year when Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. stole the show from the Fed’s Ben Bernanke.  The year when investing in US Treasuries seemed to be the only safe place to run.  “IS YOUR MONEY SAFE?” was the media sound bite and the only thing safe enough was the “full faith and credit of the US Government.”  The possibility of even the mighty FDIC going kaput gave nightmares of bank runs and CD defaults.  So how safe exactly is investing in treasuries?  That answer depends on your definition of safe and which type of treasury you buy.  As this article will show, there have been times when ... market research, surveys and trends

The credit crisis: 100 questions: Investing | Money | The Guardian
In just four hours after the US government bailed out AIG, the gold price jumped $60 an ounce - a rise of 12% - as jittery investors pulled their money out of risky equities and piled into the traditional safe haven. Some commentators are now predicting it will soon recover to the $1,000 an ounce peak it hit in March, and then go even higher. But memories of the last great boom still haunt the market. In 1980, gold hit $850, but what followed was a painful two-decade-long bear market. Not until 2001 did the price bottom out, at $250. Sadly, that was also when Gordon Brown was selling off Britain's gold reserves, achieving ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

David Rosenberg Delivers Long, Must-Read Rebuttal Of The "Bond Bubble" Talk
One of the longest, most die-hard bond bulls, David Rosenberg, is out with a long rebuttal of the new fashionable trend of calling the Treasury market a bubble. His basic ideas: The US will never ever default. Your capital is guaranteed, unlike with .coms during the bubble. Growth is weak, and there's no inflation pressure. In fact, deflation is imminent. As such, yields are still juicy if we get CPI in the -1% to -2% range. Traders are still net-short treasuries. Investors are actually gaining financial acumen. Demographics favor ongoing bond buying. And now, the whole piece I was desperately trying to resist the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Beginner Investing: EE Bonds, maturity period, treasurydirect gov
My question is this. I have emailed the Treasury people. They tell me my bonds I bought in 1993,(Oct) EE bonds I paid 25 dollors for then at the end of ten years they would be worth face value of 50.00? The bonds are now 15 years old and they tell me they are not even worth face value$46.32. I thought that once a bond earned interest they could not take it away. Which we both know the interest rate was more then today rate. The treasureary people tells me that they have not ever had 7 year bonds which I know is wrong. I want to know when they changed the rules and why? I have spoke with 3 supervisers. They told me that this is ...
Why are bond prices and yields inversely related??? - Yahoo! Answers
You can see from this that if price goes down then the yield goes up and vice versa (inversely related) The coupon is static. Or do you mean, which is more likely, the relationship between bank rates and bond prices? In this case if bank rate goes down you alter the yield to match and this will inversely effect the price in my formula. So if interest rates go down, bond prices go up and vice versa. 3 years ago There are currently no comments for this question. * You must be logged into Answers to add comments. Sign in or Register .
