[millionday] Global equity markets and government debt prices slipped on Tuesday and the dollar rose as investors contemplated prospects for fewer bond purchases by the Federal Reserve, a critical support for asset prices and the economy. German Bunds also hit three-week lows, tracking weaker prices for U.S. Treasuries, as investors made room for this week's latest supply of U.S. government debt.
A measure of global equity performance was down slightly as stocks on Wall Street and in Europe fell. U.S. stocks posted modest losses a day after the Dow Jones industrial average hit yet another record close and after a five-week rally.
The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 32.43 points, or 0.21 percent, at 15,750.67. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was down 4.20 points, or 0.24 percent, at 1,767.69. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 0.13 points, or 0.00 percent, at 3,919.92
[millionday] so bonds are used for asset prices and the economy support
[millionday] so the fact that iraq is selling them now as they reform shows that they are using them to support assets and help the economy through control
[wilbur48] i have a article that tell what they're doing and such with the bonds dated 11-12-2013
[All4HIM] I do not mean to interrupt was up early and my eyes hurt but I'd like to say something if I may: This is something I say at the close of every Sunday service and I'd like to pass it along to all of you: May the Lord Bless you and keep you, may He make His face to shine upon you, may He bless the works of your hands for His Kingdom and may you allow Him to guide your feet along the path He has laid before you. Have a Highly Blessed night~ Pastor Dana
[millionday] here is some more on this
[wmawhite] millionday .....they are also selling them as IQD....................so they must be "international"???
[millionday] smiling --- Even as nervousness about the Fed eventually pursuing a less stimulative monetary policy weighed on stocks and on bond prices, the day's steepest losses were erased when remarks by Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart and Minneapolis Fed President Narayana Kocherlakota traversed the news wires. '
Kocherlakota was very dovish,' said Jeffrey Cleveland, senior economist at Los Angeles-based Payden & Rygel, with $85 billion in assets. Speaking in St. Paul, Minnesota, Kocherlakota said there was 'no reason to be afraid of monetary stimulus,' given that inflation is 'low relative to where we want it to be.'
Reducing the pace of Fed bond purchases would be a drag on an already slow recovery, Kocherlakota said, adding that interest rates should stay low until unemployment falls to 5.5 percent as long as inflation remains in check.
[millionday] note understanding our own sometimes helps perspective on what they are refering to there
[millionday] 'He's talking about a 5-1/2 percent threshold for unemployment instead of the Fed's current 6-1/2 threshold,' Cleveland emphasized.
Lockhart, citing downside risks to the 2014 economic outlook, said monetary policy overall should remain 'very accommodative for quite some time.'
Even if the Fed does trim its bond purchases - a Reuters poll of primary dealers on Friday found a majority of respondents believe that would not happen until March or later - other far-reaching factors could temper the volatility that could ensue from a Fed tapering.
'There's a great yearning for stability, so higher yields will bring cash off the sidelines into fixed-income assets,' said Matt Toms, head of public fixed income at ING Investment Management. Those flows would keep downward pressure on rates.
[millionday] so the bond sales are used to stabalize and also help with all other economic rates too
[millionday] Another theme that would tend to keep interest rates low is that the Fed, along with the European Central Bank and Bank of Japan, 'fear deflation,' Toms observed. In overseas trading, MSCI's all-country world equity index fell 0.2 percent after two days of gains, while the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index of leading regional shares fell 0.59 percent.
The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note fell 8/32 in price to yield 2.78 percent. The fallout of forecast-beating U.S. jobs data on Friday erased Bund gains triggered by the European Central Bank's surprise interest rate cut a day earlier. The Bund future settled down 38 ticks at 140.63.
[millionday] so i hope that this makes sense economically how it is used for sale and how it effects the economy of each country there is a little more but i think the point is made brb with more
