Higher and higher we go. They had been able to hold yields down for quite a while and we are now seeing the effects. The great question is: has the FRB lost control or are they raising rates intentionally because they really have no other choice. Wouldn't they continue to keeps rates down, if they could? They surely are going to try to keep the value of the dollar as strong as possible.
U.S. 10Y Feb 15, 2022 6:57AM ET
That is what you would think but many believe we are on a crash course unlike anything seen in our history. The GFE was a warning short across the bow, that was for the most part ignored by both the government and FRB. We had a credit collapse, so lets run up three times the debt and see what happens?

I see the same old vultures, inside and out appear to still be working over the investors like Bitcoin, of a vehicle that could have been substantive. The fact they did a 9 to 1 reverse split last year is very telling. I hope you all are the ones the SEC are looking closely at.

Many people think either an aquisition or joint venture will occur. It's takes a lot of courage and moneytary support to go something with this much potential on their own. Anybody heard any credable rumors?
U.S. 10Y Feb 11, 2022 11:01AM ET
Dent has been telling the truth. Just because they have been manipulating the various markets throwing off the time line, is simply kicking the can down the proverbial road. Standing with the FRB only works until it doesn't like in 2008. Don't you remember what Wall Street, the FRB and MSM were telling us before the system started melting down. Should sound really familiar.
Dogecoin Feb 09, 2022 11:18AM ET
Any medium of exchange that starts with no value, will end up with no value. It will make some richer and many poorer, as do all fiat currencies in history. For something to replace money, it must itself have some intrinsic value or we can't really never know it true value. What people are willing to pay, is not based on rational fundamentals. Everyone is essentially guessing it's going to go up based on other popularized investments that have done so. That's Ok and you surely can make money, but just understand, it's not based on fundamental financial principles or you wouldn't have so many similar investment vehicles in the crypto space. I call it the Pet Rock Syndrome, where a company in the 1980s actually sold Pet Rocks as a novelty item and made $millions. Good luck everyone and if anyone can provide us with the estimated market value of what Dogecoin should be, based on its fundamentals, do tell.

 Pretty obvious to me as well. I am firmly of the opinion, even with the power and influence they have, they are still having a tough time trying to figure out exactly how they are going to pull it off, without the whole system collapsing to where their ownership and controls are not substantially diminished. Many have tried to take over the world geopolitically but no one has ever gotten close enough to even think about how to maintain the controls and enforcement, even if they would have done it. Pretty obvious to me as well.

  Good  observation. Are they attempting to intervein to test the outcome or just big buyers overseas needing collateral? Nobody in their right minds would buy Treasuries, with higher inflation rates then yields  unless they are forced to.  Good  observation.

 They are reacting, trying to keep the markets from getting out of control and they are basically out of all their ammunitions, except one. They can choose to either buy Treasuries and mortgages or not. As someone said below, they can continue to buy them and inflation will continue or they can stop and a recession will occur. The recessions going to occur anyways, so that makes their job even harder, as tapering, in many people opinion, will make it even worse. Trying to micromanage a macro economy should not have been allowed in the first place. It 's the 5th plank of communism for a reason and it is not to usher in a workers revolution and takeover of the means of production, at least not by the workers. They are reacting, trying to keep the markets from getting out of control and they are basically out of all their ammunitions, except one.

Trying to keep prices stable after the largest monetary expansion in our history, is impossible, but so far so good. For those who remember the Oil embargo, it's only a matter of time before we seen similar results. History repeats itself, if you keep doing the same things.
Crude Oil WTI Feb 08, 2022 6:34AM ET
Getting other nations to agree on the price of a barrel of oil priced in the USD is what happened in 1972 and 1973 during the oil imbargo. It's as much about the value of the precieved USD as it is the oil. The embargo lasted exactly 7 months, the lenght it took to regnociate how the USD was going to be valued. For the first time since 1933, the USD once again was allowed to float against the price of gold. as gold surged it slowly led to all prices drasticlly rising with a 250% increase untill the mid 1980 when the FRB hicked the discount rates to over 13%. We of course had a much strong economy back than.

you always nned to factor in the amount fuel the military is burning on their little wars aroiund the world. the government doesny care how much it pays for fuel as long as the militiary contractors keep paying out their campaign contributions.

I would think the smart money has started to move their investments to those that do well in times of infaltion and out of those investments that do not. $30 T is a huge number espeically when half the country works in jobs deemed low income The only question now, is when will we default. The total costs of the various levels of governemnt are way to high for the majority of American businesses to be competitive to any signficant levels.The socialists within the bureacries are literally fighting to maiitain their jobs and it's going to get worese and worse for the if the FRB really does tapper.
U.S. 10Y Feb 07, 2022 7:33AM ET
 What? You crypto mongers think you can create intrinsic value out of thin air like the FRB and Government illegally do. Any investor with a brain has at least 10% of the assets in precious metals, especially when the CPI is at these levels. What?

If the inflation is not transitory, as most believe, oil could easily go to $150 based on the historical inflations rates in the 1980s in relationship to the levels of the money supply. I think there was a far smaller money supply and expansion back then, fueled by spending on the Vietnam War. Will the FRB be forced to keep the pedal to the metal or will they realy try to taper? We wil soon find out.
US Dollar Index Feb 04, 2022 12:22PM ET
Oil price hits $92.5 and the winter has a long way to go, as global cooling begins again. Just kidding they have no idea what happening or why but it does make for some good headlines and government reseach grants. Sadly no headlines to report, no grants and we can't have that.

The ability to keep our relatively worthless USD in this range again the basket of currecies is quite impressive. Florida real estate prices are going through the roof as thsse who have profited off the system, flee the blue States for personal gains. I wonder how long it will take them to screw this State up ven more. This will be about the fourth wave of migration of democartic socialists fleeing the dying cultures of the North East and moving to Florida. I watched them in the 1980s come in and corrupt the local manicipalities. 500 more tons of arms jsut shipped to Ukrain. How many of these folks have shares in these companies? They're bankrupting the government and the people.
U.S. 10Y Feb 03, 2022 9:25AM ET
I not disagreeing with you but do you use a crystal ball, or what is your evidence the yield will rise?  . Quality is also highly subjective. Just busting chops.

 Be patient, you are not down very much, IMO, compared to what it will eventually go up. However, with these levels of spending and borrowing, significant increases are inevitable, which significantly out perform all other investments during the period. It just a matter of when. Many people just haven't seen it play out before. It like field of dreams, build it and they will come. Buy them and it will happen. If anything in modern history has changed, I would be the first to try to understand it. The GFC was a collapse in credit, so what did they do, they tripled the amount of debt and put no significant protections in place from stopping it from happening again. Sadly, the Chinese economy is now experiencing the same thing that happened to us in 2008 and it will spill over and affect the rest of the world. It reminds me of how I felt in late 2007 and early 2008, knowing the system had already started to melt down, most people had just not started quit yet to feel the results. Be patient, you are not down very much, IMO, compared to what it will eventually go up.

 I do like you optimism. No one taught you and/or you haven't experienced the concept of trying to time the markets is like guessing when life on earth is going to end? Your crystal ball is obviously still working. Sadly mine broke, when I was much younger and naive, years ago when trying to chart and day trade currencies. I had 30 charts up at any given time n four monitors. It was fun and thankfully I didn't lose very much. FYI: Half the DOW stocks have been buying back their own shares, while the broader markets continue their declines. Be very careful my friend, there are many vultures out there manipulating the various markets in collusion with their cronies. The get caught occasionally so we know it's happening and like the war on drugs, the only stop a small portions of the trades. I do like you optimism.

 If they raise rates it would increase the value of the Dollar and lower the inflation rate. I could also be waiting forever, if they are bluffing which they have done before. I suggest the time to buy gold/silver is when the gold/silver markets are the most stable. You don't want to wait and try to get on board when everyone else is. Yes, I'm down over the last year or so, but up overall in almost all my acquisitions over the last 25 years. It should be the 10% to 20% of your portfolio, that you know you can go to bed at night and not half to worry. In the 1990's, I only had 10% but have upped it, as government and central banking policies have significantly increased the money supply. Surely its being manipulated, but so is almost everything else but they can only do it for so long and at certain levels and with especially silver, it has gotten them into trouble with the huge price disparity between the physical and paper prices and the day, IMO, of reckoning is near. If they raise rates it would increase the value of the Dollar and lower the inflation rate.

 Yea, if you need yield, short term gains and what to take the risk of losing your capital, be my guest. Yea, if you need yield, short term gains and what to take the risk of losing your capital, be my guest.
