Fed to purchase up to $600B in Treasuries by the end of Q2
http://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/press/monetary/20101103a.htm i would like to encourage you to only seek reliable sources on your data for this topic, ergo the horses mouth pace is set at $75B per month and will maintain a 0% to 1/4% increase in the federal funds rate if there is enough interest (no pun intended), I will do my best to tell you what I think this means. i believe it is important that we understand the why or analyze the why even when we do not think we agree with something. What? You people are always bitching about the national debt, now you are going to bitch when we pay it off? Sheesh. Okay, maybe that wasn't funny.

Bonds Explained for Beginners | Bond Trading 101
Earn up to 1 Year Free: https://bit.ly/2oul70h Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ A bond is a type of loan issued to some type of entity such as a business or government by an investor. It’s similar to borrowing money from a lender if you’ve ever purchased a home or car before. Sometimes businesses need more money than the banks will offer them, so they issue bonds as a way to raise more capital. Governments can also issue bonds when they need more money for things like roads or parks. Bonds are considered safer on the risk spectrum for investments, but they also typically carry a lower return. Benjamin Graham, author of the intelligent investor and Warren Buffets mentor, recommends holding a portfolio of 75% stocks and 25% bonds during a bull market and 75% bonds and 25% stocks during a bear market. As opposed to other investments which are considered equity, bonds are considered debt which means that if a company goes under, it must repay all bondholders before stockholders. This is due to the fixed interest nature of the bond. When the investor purchases a bond at what’s called the face value, they are paid interest, known as the coupon or yield. The reason it’s referred to as coupon is because back when bonds were actually paper, investors would physically have to clip coupons to redeem their interest. Anyway, the investor is paid a coupon on the bond until the loan is fully paid back by the issuer. This is known as the maturity date. Interest payment frequency and the maturity date is determined prior to the purchase of the bond. For example, if I purchase a $1,000, 3-year bond with a 5% coupon, I know I’ll receive $50 in interest each year for 3 years. Now it’s important to note that Bonds can vary in risk and return A AAA bond is the best bond you can buy while a Ba bond and lower are more speculative and are known as Junk bonds When it comes to bonds, the higher the return, the higher the risk. The lower the return, the lower the risk. Bonds with a longer maturity date are also riskier and carry a higher return. Typically government bonds will be safer than corporate bonds. When it comes to taxation, corporate bonds are taxed regularly while some bonds like municipal and other government bonds are tax-exempt. A bond can also be secured or unsecured With an unsecured bond, you may lose all of your investment if the company fails while with a secured bond, the company pledges specific assets to give shareholders if they fail to repay their bonds. Although bonds are considered a “safer” investment, they still do come with risks. When you purchase a bond, interest rates are out of your control and may fluctuate. Interest rates are controlled by the U.S. treasury, the federal reserve, and the banking industry. This means that if specified in your agreement, the company may be able to issue a call provision which is an early redemption of the bond. While not always the case, companies will take advantage of lower interest rates to pay back loans early. This leaves you with a lower return than what you expected. Bonds are also inversely proportional to interest rates so when interest rates go up, bonds go down and vice versa. Bonds can also be traded between investors prior to its maturity date. A bond that’s traded below the market value is said to be trading at a discount while a bond trading for more than it’s face value is trading at a premium. Bonds can be a great way to diversify your investment portfolio, however, they can also be quite complex. You can use investment platforms like Fidelity, E-Tade, or Charles Shwabb to learn more about specific types of bonds. For today’s video, we will be using Fidelity.

Unfortunately, if you have any amount of cash whatsoever, most likely you’re losing money without even realizing it…here’s why, and 4 alternatives to prevent this from happening. Enjoy!

Now when I mean “holding cash,” I don’t mean like you’re actually just holding cash...don’t take that term literally. Instead, I’m referring to either keeping a ton of cash laying around under couch or a mattress because you don’t trust banks or something, or maybe you just keep your money in a checking account or regular savings account - which, unfortunately, is what most people do, and that ends up unknowingly costing them money. Don’t do that. And this is why you should avoid that: INFLATION. This means that the value of your money DECREASES every single year, because…summed up…the country prints more money than there is value. In 99% of situations, when you just keep cash as cash…you lose money. If you keep money in a checking account, you lose money. If you keep cash in a normal savings account earning .1% interest, you lose money. This is bad. And that’s where most people make the mistake of losing money without even realizing it. So with that said, here are 5 options so you can avoid this: The FIRST place you can put your money is a high interest, FDIC-insured savings account: Ally Bank: 2.2% Interest on their savings account Marcus by Goldman Sachs: 2.25% on their savings account PNC bank: 2.35% on their savings account CIT Bank: 2.45% interest for accounts that have a balance above $25,000. SECOND, if you want a SLIGHTLY better return and don’t need the money immediately, your next option is a CD. Ally Bank 12-month No Penalty CD: 2.3% interest Capital One 360 12-month CD: 2.7% interest Marcus By Goldman Sachs 12-month CD: 2.75% interest Syncrhony Bank 12-month CD: 2.8% interest with $2000 minimum deposit Third: TREASURY BILLS. This is basically a short term “loan” you give, and in return for lending them money, they pay you back with interest. The good thing about Treasury Bills, and a HUGE advantage over anything else, is that they’re not subject to local or state level taxes…so for people in high tax states like California or New York, this could save you a TON of money in taxes! So the way this works is you can go on TreasuryDirect.gov, make an account, and then purchase 4-week treasury bills, which currently pay 2.428% interest annually. You can also set this up to re-invest every 4 weeks, so that way you’re constantly getting a high rate of return - tax free on the state level - without thinking about it. Fifth Option: buying a bond. For instance, we have the Vanguard High-Yield Corporate Fund Investor Shares (VWEHX)…this pays a whopping 6.1% right now, which works out to be 5.87% after fees. Now this is NOT a risk free return, the price of the bond COULD go down, the payout of the bond COULD go down…or they could both go UP and you make more money. But for someone willing to take a little more risk with their money, this is a decent way to take a LITTLE risk with some decent upside. https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/VWEHX Or, you have the total bond market index VBMFX…after expenses, you’re looking at about a 2.9% annual return. And this one is much less volatile. https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/VBMFX Nonetheless, this could be a decent option if you want to take on a little more risk with your money, while still maintaining liquidity in the event you need it immediately. So there you go…don’t hold on to cash, because if you do, you’re gonna have a bad time and you’re going to lose money with inflation, which is EASILY avoidable if you just put your money in a few of the options I mentioned here. And ALL of these options take you under 10 minutes to setup…it’s really simple, and a great way to PRESERVE your wealth and keep it liquid until you need it for other investments. Like avocado toast.

What are Treasury Securities?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Treasury Securities” These U.S. government-issued debt securities are divided into three categories by maturity dates: Treasury bonds mature in 10 or more years, Treasury notes mature between one and 10 years and Treasury bills mature in one year or less. These debt obligations are considered the safest option for bond investors since they are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. But that safety comes at a price: The interest rates on Treasury’s are lower than other bonds with the same duration. Treasury securities are divided into three categories according to their lengths of maturities. These three types of bonds share many common characteristics, but also have some key differences. The categories and key features of treasury securities include: T-Bills – These have the shortest range of maturities of all government bonds at 4, 13, 26 and 52 weeks. They are the only type of treasury security found in both the capital and money markets, as three of the maturity terms fall under the 270-day dividing line between them. T-Bills are issued at a discount and mature at par value, with the difference between the purchase and sale prices constituting the interest paid on the bill. T-Notes – These notes represent the middle range of maturities in the treasury family, with maturity terms of 2, 3, 5, 7 and 10 years currently available. Treasury notes are issued at a $1,000 par value and mature at the same price. They pay interest semiannually. T-Bonds – Commonly referred to in the investment community as the “long bond”, T-Bonds are essentially identical to T-Notes except that they mature in 30 years. T-Bonds are also issued at and mature at a $1,000 par value and pay interest semiannually. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy

Buying US Treasuries
http://www.CandlestickForums.com - Buying US Treasuries Investors are buying US Treasuries in a flight to security as both the European and American economies promise to stay in the doldrums from a prolonged period. Stocks have fallen sharply and risen again several times of late as uncertainty has led to persistent market volatility. Oil futures are down as are stocks. Gold futures are down as well, even in light of a retreat of the NYSE, NASDAQ, and stock markets across the world. It would appear as though those interested in gold investing are also uncertain about the duration of the decade long bull market in the precious metal. Investors are buying US Treasuries in this uncertain world even after Standard and Poors downgraded US debt after the Capitol Hill fiasco in which congress and the president were unable to come to a quick compromise on raising the US debt ceiling. With the use of sound fundamental and technical analysis traders can profit from swings in interest rates when buying US Treasuries and selling them. Candlestick analysis of interest rates helps traders objectively anticipate market trends and market reversal in rates and profit thereby. Recently investors were buying US treasuries, the ten year note, for as low as a 1.76% yield. US Treasury notes are issues form terms ranging from one to ten years in denominations of $1,000. $1,000 is what the investor will receive if he holds the note to maturity. He will also receive taxable interest every six months for the duration of the note. What he pays when buying US treasuries will depend upon the market. By comparison Treasury Bills have maturities of four weeks to a year. They are sold at a discount and the investor receives the par value of Treasury Bills. For those interested in long term investing when buying US Treasuries there is the Treasury bond. These are typically sold as a 30 year bond. Sales of the glong bondh have fallen dramatically in last decade or more as those buying US Treasuries have been concerned about inflation eating away at the value of their long term investment. Traders, however, can profitably buy bonds or sell bonds. In a stable currency this is essentially interest rate investing. On the other hand investing in the national debt of several of the so called PIIGS nations (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain) is a bet on whether these nations will default on their debt or be bailed out by wealthier members of the EU and foreign investors in the nick of time. US Treasuries are issued with a fixed rate of interest. One can purchase them directly or in the secondary market, through a stock broker, for example. Traders profit as investors perceive market risk to be too high throughout the world and engage in buying US Treasuries. Traders use Candlestick patterns to anticipate interest rate movement just as they use Candlestick pattern formations in trading stocks, trading options, and trading futures. To degree buying US Treasuries involves foreign currency trading. Investors buy dollars with Euros, Yen, or British Pounds and then, by buying US Treasuries, hold assets in US dollar denominated instruments and hold an investment that has never defaulted. Traders can also profit by keeping an eye on the Forex markets in case of a flight to the dollar as things worsen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBdXaQntah4

Why is China buying more U.S. debt?
BEIJING, China (CNN) -- China, holder of nearly $1 trillion in U.S. debt, will keep buying Treasuries, but will keep a close eye on their value just the same, a Chinese government official said. "Investing in U.S. Treasury bonds is an important component of China's foreign currency reserve investments," said Hu Xiaolian, deputy governor of the People's Bank of China. "We are naturally relatively concerned with the safety and profitability of U.S. government bonds." Hu's comments came at a briefing Monday ahead of the Group of 20 financial summit in Britain scheduled for early next month. The G-20 nations represent 85 percent of the world's gross domestic product. China has an estimated $2 trillion in foreign reserves and is the United States' largest creditor, having bought more than $1 trillion of its debt. Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao expressed similar concerns about the state of the U.S. economy and President Barack Obama's economic plan earlier this month. "We have loaned a huge amount of money to the United States," Wen said at a news conference in Beijing on March 13. "Of course, we are concerned about the safety of our assets. To be honest, I'm a little bit worried. I would like for you [a western reporter] to call on the United States to honor its word and stay a credible nation and ensure the safety of Chinese assets." Washington is spending trillions of dollars in an attempt to shore up the the U.S. economy, including a stimulus package, bailouts of top U.S. industries and the purchase of billions of dollars in bad bank assets.

Dollars Do Not Leave The US Financial System
Frank Newman, former Deputy Secretary of the US Treasury, discussing the relationship between the US national debt and China. Dollars (the ones that can be used to pay taxes or buy Treasury bonds) can only exist in the US financial system (with the small exception of paper dollar currency, but most of the dollars that exist are electronic). If a foreign entity holds US dollars, it either means that their bank has a US branch which has an account at the Federal Reserve, or their bank has a partner correspondent bank who's actually holding the dollars for them, who has an account at the US Federal Reserve. Even the dollar accounts that foreign government have all only exist at the US Federal Reserve. The reason we "owe money to China" is because we run a trade deficit with them. We import more from them than we export to them, so they end up accumulating dollars. Those dollars appear in the Chinese government's account at the US Federal Reserve. They came from US banks' accounts at the Federal Reserve, and all they did is change ownership. Regardless of whether the dollars (reserves) are held by banks or by China, or some other nation, they only have 2 options of what to do with them: they can either hold them as dollars, or use them to buy US Treasury bonds, part of the "national debt." (They could sell them to somebody else, but this just pushes the same choice to somebody else). Since reserves at the Federal Reserve are exactly as safe of a financial asset as US Treasury bonds (which are also operationally equivalent to accounts at the Federal Reserve), most banks or governments holding reserves will use them to purchase Treasury bonds, so that they can earn interest. So, selling bonds is best thought of as a service that the US government provides to savers: it allows them to earn a higher interest rate on their US dollar assets, rather than letting them earn zero or near-zero by holding their dollars as dollars.

What If Nobody Bought US Treasury Bonds?
Professor L. Randall Wray answering the question of what would happen if nobody bought US treasury bonds? Would we go bankrupt?! The answer is no. Under current law, special primary dealer banks must buy new issues of treasury bonds, and then they can either keep them, sell them to the public, or sell them to the Federal Reserve. But even if we didn't have our current institutional structure, a currency-issuing government like the United States can always sell its bonds to the central bank.

Officials on buying US bonds, rejection of Coca-Cola deal
(23 Mar 2009) SHOTLIST 1. Wide of Ministry of Foreign Affairs press centre 2. Cutaway of cameras 3. SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) Hu Xiaolian, Vice Governor People's Bank of China: "Concerning our investment in US bonds, we feel that this is an important part of our foreign exchange strategy and we will continue with this." 4. Officials on stage 5. Journalist with computer 6. SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) Li Yong, Vice Minister of Finance: "All of us are against trade protectionism� but the question of Coca-Cola buying Huiyuan� that is more like this: the Chinese government stopped Coca-Cola from acquiring Huiyuan as a result of anti-monopoly laws and this was a result of their ruling. A ruling of this nature is intended to preserve an environment of fair competition in the Chinese markets. This is completely different from trade protectionism." 7. Wide interior of press centre STORYLINE China on Monday said it would continue buying US government debt while paying close attention to possible fluctuations in the value of those assets. Investing in US government bonds was "an important part" of China's foreign exchange strategy, said Hu Xiaolian, who is the vice-governor of the People's Bank of China. Speaking at a news conference in Beijing, she did however confirm that China was concerned with the safety and profitability of US bonds - a statement apparently aimed at concerns that rising debt to fund Washington's stimulus package could spur inflation and weaken the dollar. China is Washington's biggest foreign creditor, holding an estimated one (tr) trillion US dollars in US government debt. A weaker dollar would erode the value of those assets. Hu's comments followed remarks earlier this month from Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao that he was "a little bit worried" about China's holdings of US government debt. At the time, he called on the US to honour its commitments, remain credit-worthy and ensure the safety of Chinese assets. China's investments are likely to be a major topic of discussion when Chinese President Hu Jintao meets President Barack Obama on the sidelines of an April 2 summit in London of the Group of 20 major economies called to discuss remedies for the global financial crisis. China has given no indication of any preferred changes to US policy and Vice Governor Hu said China considered US debt a good credit risk, even if market values fluctuated. Analysts estimate China keeps nearly half of its two (tr) trillion dollars in foreign currency reserves in US Treasuries and notes issued by other government-affiliated agencies. That has sparked questions within China as to whether the government should continue to buy Treasuries, as well as debate on how Beijing might leverage that to boost its influence over the global financial system. China's continued purchase of Treasuries helps fund US deficit spending aimed at averting a lengthy recession and helps keeps interest rates low to permit US banks to continue lending. At the same news conference, the vice minister of finance defended China's rejection of Coca-Cola's bid to buy a Chinese fruit juice producer. Regulators cited anti-monopoly concerns, but industry analysts believe Beijing wanted to keep the successful local Huiyuan brand out of foreign hands. However, Li Yong told reporters the rejection of Coca-Cola's 2.5 (b) billion US dollars acquisition offer should not be seen as trade protectionism, but as an attempt to "preserve an environment of fair competition in the Chinese markets". China is a top destination for foreign investment and received 5.8 (b) billion US dollars in February despite a decline amid global financial turmoil. But foreign acquisitions of established companies are still rare and politically sensitive.

What is a Treasury Bond (T-Bond)?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Treasury Bond or T-Bond” A T-bond is a marketable, fixed-interest government debt security with a maturity of more than 10 years. Treasury bonds make interest payments semi-annually and the income that holders receive is only taxed at the federal level. Treasury bonds are issued with a minimum denomination of $1,000. The bonds are initially sold through auction in which the maximum purchase amount is $5 million if the bid is non-competitive or 35% of the offering if the bid is competitive. A competitive bid states the rate that the bidder is willing to accept; it will be accepted depending on how it compares to the set rate of the bond. A non-competitive bid ensures that the bidder will get the bond but he or she will have to accept the set rate. After the auction, the bonds can be sold in the secondary market.

Treasury Notes
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/bond-investing/treasury-notes Treasury Notes By: www.profitableinvestingtips.com Periodically congress decides to get into a fight over whether to approve the next budget or not. But rather than work on the issue of an ever increasing national debt before the fact, congress has made a habit of playing chicken with the full faith and integrity of the US government. When another high stakes game of "chicken" on Capitol Hill investors will be wondering what will happen to Treasury Notes (T-notes) if the US does not extend its ability to borrow to fund current expenses. Likewise investors in Treasury Notes may well wonder what the future is for interest rates on Treasury Notes and the value of the US dollar related to foreign currencies if the United States does not effectively deal with its long term debt. Treasury Notes are notes issued by the US government. They have maturities of two, three, five, seven, and ten years and a denomination of $100. Investors can buy Treasury Notes directly from the US Treasury, through a bank or through a stock broker. T-notes are often part of an investment portfolio for a conservative investor. They pay interest every six months until maturity at which time the owner gets back the principal. Treasury notes are also traded as their value fluctuates with prevailing interest rates. Investors can follow short term changes in T-notes and interest rates in general with Candlestick analysis just as they can follow stocks and commodities. It is important to do strict fundamental analysis of all factors involved when investing in treasury notes. Treasury Notes and Fluctuating Interest Rates It is the possibility of unpredictable interest rates that concerns investors and piques the interest of traders. T-notes are a form of interest rate investing. In long term investing a person will commonly purchase Treasury Notes and hold to maturity. In day trading one can follow fundamental analysis of interest rates and technical analysis of the interest rate market with technical analysis tools such as Candlestick pattern formations. In value investing for long term profits investors often wait until interest rates spike and then buy and hold for the long term. The Nuts and Bolts of Treasury Notes Investors and traders of Treasury Notes can place either competitive or noncompetitive bids for notes which are sold at auction or can simply buy them from their broker. Treasury Notes on the secondary market may be selling at a premium or a discount to their par value. T-notes rise or fall in value opposite to interest rates. The uncertainty of the US even temporarily defaulting on its debts has sent the stock market downward and could result in credit rating agencies, such as Standard and Poors, downgrading US debt. A lower debt rating typically drives up the cost of borrowing. That would mean that investors and traders would demand higher interest rates or would not buy T-Notes, thus driving the price up at weekly auctions. Anyone holding older Treasury Notes would continue to receive the same interest payment every six months but the value of their T-note would fall. If interest rates are going to rise in the coming weeks and months traders will be wise to sell T-notes and bonds in advance and buy T-notes or buy bonds when rates have gone up. If the powers that be in Washington are able to deal effectively with the US long term debt we could see a progressive fall of interest rates of Treasury Notes. In such a situation a trader using trading tools such as Candlestick charting to follow rates can purchase T-notes at the top of the interest rate curve and see the value of their T-notes progressively increase as rates fall. Investing in treasuries, like investing in bonds, requires that traders keep a close eye on the fundamentals that drive interest rates and use Candlestick chart formations to follow market sentiment. Smart investors pick profitable investment vehicles. Investing in high interest rate treasury notes and holding for the long term can be profitable. http://youtu.be/-izwxwpYnGo

News Update: Treasury 10-Year Notes Rise for Fourth Day on Bets Fed Will Buy More Debt
"Bloomberg is reporting that Treasury 10-year notes rose for a fourth day in the longest period of gains since June as traders predicted that the Federal Reserve could move to increase purchases of U.S. debt. Conversely, two-year note yields saw a record low for a second day after the Fed said yesterday it's "prepared to provide additional accommodation if needed to support the economic recovery." The Fed bought $2.07 billion worth of Treasuries maturing from March 2013 to April 2014 today in attempts to keep borrowing costs low. Martin Michell, a trader with Stifel Nicolaus & Co. said, "There is an underlying bid in the market as the bull trend in Treasuries remains intact. The Fed has tipped their hand that they are likely to initiate a larger-scale asset-purchase program in the future. If the Fed becomes a larger buyer, the Treasury market can only go higher." "

Uncertain Fiscal Policy Makes US Treasuries Hard to Sell
http://www.forexconspiracyreport.com/uncertain-fiscal-policy-makes-us-treasuries-hard-to-sell/ Uncertain Fiscal Policy Makes US Treasuries Hard to Sell By www.ForexConspiracyReport.com The uncertainty generated by the Trump administration has come home to roost on the US dollar and US Treasuries. Bloomberg reports that Japan is shunning US debt. America’s biggest foreign creditor is unloading U.S. debt. And in a warning sign for the $13.9 trillion Treasuries market, Japan’s famously risk-averse money managers are giving little sense that an about-face is imminent, even as their new fiscal year is poised to bring a clean slate after a punishing stretch of losses. The specter of Federal Reserve rate hikes and the potential for economy-boosting fiscal stimulus are keeping Japanese investors from seizing a buying opportunity that seemed inconceivable just six months ago, before President Trump’s election. And their reluctance, even as the cost of insuring against swings in the dollar is near the lowest since January 2015, raises doubts about the sustainability of the latest U.S. bond rally. Rates are not the problem as current rates make Treasuries attractive to foreign investors. The problem is uncertainty. We wrote recently about Japan selling US Treasuries. Next to China, Japan is the biggest holder of US debt. And Japan is having second thoughts. Why is Japan selling US treasuries? Bloomberg writes that America’s biggest creditors are dumping treasuries as a warning to Trump. In the age of Trump, America’s biggest foreign creditors are suddenly having second thoughts about financing the U.S. government. In Japan, the largest holder of Treasuries, investors culled their stakes in December by the most in almost four years, the Ministry of Finance’s most recent figures show. What’s striking is the selling has persisted at a time when going abroad has rarely been so attractive. And it’s not just the Japanese. Across the world, foreigners are pulling back from U.S. debt like never before. From Tokyo to Beijing and London, the consensus is clear: few overseas investors want to step into the $13.9 trillion U.S. Treasury market right now. The prospect of more deficit spending in the USA as part of this is the odds that interest rates will be going up making current holding less valuable. The chaos that is the Trump administration has rattled investors and that is why Japan and others are selling U.S. treasuries. What is a Forex trader to do in these circumstances? If Japanese are not converting Yen to dollars to buy Treasuries and especially if they are selling Treasuries and converting out of dollars the USD will gradually fall. The aversion to US debt is not just in Japan. Thus the downward pressure on the dollar will be generalized. On the other hand the USA has a huge appetite for adding on debt. So rates will go up in order to entice buyers to purchase US debt. That will eventually level off the USD but likely at a rate less that today’s rate against all major currencies. If the Trump administration gets back on track and makes something out of its promises to improve the US economy that might help the perception of US debt. Otherwise expect to see a steady slide of the greenback. https://youtu.be/f31gf_XaLJQ
