Global Financial mess!  This thread just keeps getting more
hair raising!   It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

It surely is and I am watching it now going on since 2008 so for eight years now.

Just think about this for a moment, 8 years into this depression and still unemployment is going up world wide!!?? That's freakin' unreal but nobody is talking about that in the MSM.

In October jobless rate rises in Sweden, Finland and Spain. In September jobless rate rises even in Germany and Iceland but also in Italy and Finland. French unemployment rate rises in Q3.

Also in the U.S. many people are still laid off but the long-time-unemployed don't count in their unsavory unemployment statistics so we have 95.1 million Americans not in the Labor Force not counted in the official unemployment rate number!

Somtin's gotto give, at a certain point in time ...

“People think that if only we cut taxes, kill Obamacare, and build some bridges, then American CEOs will start spending.

That’s nonsense.” Ageing demographics, slowing population growth, and massive economy-wide debts have left CEOs unenthusiastic about expanding productive capacity.

First the anticipation of higher borrowing and rising growth expectations will widen interest rate differentials. Which will lift the dollar.

But unlike recent episodes of dollar strength, this one will be accompanied by higher equities as investors ignore tightening financial conditions because they expect offsetting tax cuts and infrastructure spending.

Emboldened by higher equity prices, bond bears will push yields higher, lifting the dollar further, validating people’s belief in a strong economy in the kind of reflexive loop that Soros described in The Alchemy of Finance - the kind that drives extreme macro trends.

“This will be like the 1985 dollar super-spike. And the Fed will eventually be forced to follow the steepening yield curve, hiking rates aggressively, tightening the debt noose, killing the economy.

Then rates will collapse, crushing the dollar.”

During an earnings teleconference in October, Boeing Chairman and CEO Dennis Muilenburg had projected that outcome if further sales failed to materialize within a couple of months.

Pending Home Sales Tumble As Surging Mortgage Rates Paralyze Housing Market

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-28/pending-home-sales-tumble-surging-mortgage-rate-paralyze-housing-market

Providing you have good FICO scores, etc. here's the weekly
fixed mortgage rates =

30 year  fixed mortgage = 4.15 %

15 year fixed mortgage = 3.32 %

Re-fi rates - Refinancing

30 year re-fi fixed = 4.19 %

15 year re-fi fixed = 3.34 %


If people think these current mortgage rates are high,
they shouldn't be buying a house.  These rates are nothing
in my opinion.   If the housing market (home sales) are
feeling the slowdown and blaming it on these low rates
in my opinion, just wait until Janet Yellen starts raising
rates, mortgage rates will climb real fast.

Everyone seems to have bought into the idea that a big round of inflation is coming shortly.
I think a deflationary asset-bubble bust is more likely, with central banks having to reverse hikes (assuming they get hikes in the first place).
Banks want higher rates and crept up LIBOR. But nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. That’s also the reason Yellen will hike rate this month.
Eventually the banks will force the deflationary debt collapse and blame it on whatever is on people’s mind at that moment. Probably some form of Brexit.
