  • Further measures to reduce the deficit are necessary for the U.S. to hold onto its AAA rating, Moody's senior credit officer Steven Hess tells the WSJ. He expects said measures will soon be forthcoming, and Moody's will await the outcome of those negotiations before any rating change. [View news story]
    Macro you sound like a guy mumbling to yourself. I don't know why I entertain it. As for the deficit last year, it was over a trillion. This year it will be over a trillion. So is there really a scarcity of treasuries being issued? A trillion a year is a scarcity? Who is mumbling now my dea macro investor?

    From Kyle Bass recently

    “They’re not going to tell you that a collapse is coming. You’re going to have to see it for yourself. The government’s never going to tell you that it’s going to happen. These guys are never going to tell you the truth, because they can’t tell you the truth. Their job is to promote confidence, not to tell you the truth.”

    "Govt is issuing less of it"

    What? LOL

    You are right about everything else. The debt ceiling will be a media made joke and it prob won't even get you the entry point you are hping for. The fed is buying pretty much all the treasuries being issued, so they are scarce, which is good because no one else wants them.

    This will probably go on for a while. But it will in in massive massive pain. It already is for a lot of people.

  • False Hope: Low Rates, Write-Offs Make Americans Richer By Default [View article]
    I would not dispense market advice. Good luck with your portfolio.

    The market and the economy are no longer connected in any way. The market is a tool for the fed. The fed has proven to have a horrific track record with it's economic predictions and already lost control of this thing once. They "saved" it by printing money. Now that is the plan from here on out. Hedge accordingy.

    'I am not sure what Uncle Ben's end game will be. I would assume that the Fed is not going to buy all of the government's debt with newly created money and then burn it. "

    remember you said that. You will find your confusion to be incredibly accurate down the road.

    US citizens can no longer open swiss accounts. Just a heads up. They don't want dollars anymore.

    Tack did you see that Paul Ryan voted for this bill? When are you going to stop getting fooled by these people? I am not sure if they are Socialists. This looks more like Russia to me. But good luck with your republican party.

    No shot Tack. Not a chance. As Kyle Bass said recently....there is no playbook for where we are at right now. Take your historical playbook and throw it out the window. It's not whether rates should or should not rise. They can't rise. Plain and simple. We can't fund our deficits at higher rates. We can;t pay the interest on our debt without eating into more and more tax revenue and crowding out everythig else.

    We are on QE4 tack. How did Japan's equity markets perform since they started QE? down 90%? We are Japan except I don't think we get the benefit of 20 years of this garbage.
