Australia is a good alternative to the negative yields in Europe, but it's better to hedge the currency back to dollars, said Lynda Schweitzer, portfolio manager for the Loomis Sayles Global Bond Fund. Schweitzer added that the Reserve Bank of Australia will cut rates a couple more times due to the slowing economy which is good for government bonds. She said it is hard to find value in emerging market bonds now due to the strong dollar and that is forcing her to be selective. Finally, Schweitzer said she was underweight energy bonds last year, but raised the fund's exposure to energy names in the first quarter, specifically some of the low cost providers that won’t get hit any further if oil goes down further.

Giuseppe Conte’s new government wants to turn its back on the European Union’s recommendations. According to the coalition that governs Italy (an alliance between the Eurosceptic populists of the Five Star Movement and the far-right party La Liga), the country must regain the sovereignty that Brussels snatched from it. And what does this mean? Well, Rome wants to turn its back on Brussel’s recommendations, which require public spending cuts. The new Italian budgets imply an increase in the Italian deficit and debt. All while this country’s economy doesn’t grow and loses competitiveness day after day. In other words: Italy is becoming the new Greece... but with a difference in size: Italy is 6 times bigger than the Hellenic country. This means a huge problem for all of Europe. But what are the keys to this story? Is it really such a worrying problem? We’ll tell you all about it in this video.

Wuffli said that remains a major risk for Europe. There is still, in a way, too much incentive for banks to invest into government bonds, and therefore not enough pressure to really put governments into a situation to do reforms on their state finance Wuffli, now a vice chairman of the board of directors at private equity firm Partners Group, said at the annual Singapore Summit . Looking in Europe, thats currently the biggest risk, he said, pointing to Italy where there is still no risk premium on holding government bonds, for a bank. He said it would be much better for the system if bonds were not looked at as risk free, so institutions invested in other kinds of assets.

There is growing opinion across Europe that so-called Eurobonds are the bold step needed to tackle the financial crisis. The principle behind a common government bond is that Eurozone countries would guarantee each other's debts. Investors would see the bonds as safe and would loan money at low interest rates. The hope is that the lower borrowing costs would prevent any more financial bailouts. But the eurobond has its critics. Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports.

The European debt crisis (often also referred to as the Eurozone crisis or the European sovereign debt crisis) is a multi-year debt crisis that has taken place in several eurozone member states since the end of 2009. These states were unable to repay or refinance their government debt or to bail-out over-indebted banks under their national supervision without the assistance of third parties like the EFSF, the ECB, or the IMF. The European debt crisis erupted in the wake of the Great Recession around late 2009, and was characterized by an environment of overly high government structural deficits and accelerating debt levels. The states getting adversely hit by the crisis, faced a strong rise of interest rate spreads for government bonds, as a result of investor concerns about their future debt sustainability, to the extent that four eurozone states needed to be rescued by sovereign bailout programs, delivered jointly by the International Monetary Fund and European Commission - with additional support at the technical level by the European Central Bank. Together these three international organisations representing the bailout creditors, became nicknamed "the Troika". In 1992, members of the European Union signed the Maastricht Treaty, under which they pledged to limit their deficit spending and debt levels. However, in the early 2000s, some EU member states were failing to stay within the confines of the Maastricht criteria and turned to securitising future government revenues to reduce their debts and/or deficits, sidestepping best practice and ignoring international standards. This allowed the sovereigns to mask their deficit and debt levels through a combination of techniques, including inconsistent accounting, off-balance-sheet transactions, and the use of complex currency and credit derivatives structures. From late 2009 on, after Greece's new elected government stopped masking its true indebtness and budget deficit, fears of sovereign defaults in certain European states developed in the public. This led to a wave of downgrading the government debts of these states. The detailed causes for running unsustainable budget deficits and debt levels varied by crisis country. In several countries, private debts arising from a property bubble were transferred to sovereign debt as a result of banking system bailouts and government responses to slowing economies post-bubble. In Greece, high public sector wage and pension commitments were connected to the debt increase. The structure of the eurozone as a currency union (i.e., one currency) without fiscal union (e.g., different tax and public pension rules) contributed to the crisis and harmed the ability of European leaders to respond. European banks own a significant amount of sovereign debt, such that concerns regarding the solvency of banking systems or sovereigns are negatively reinforcing. Concerns intensified in early 2010 and thereafter, leading European nations to implement a series of financial support measures such as the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) and European Stability Mechanism (ESM). When the relatively fragile banking sector, as a negative repercussion of the Great Recession had suffered big capital losses, most states in Europe had to bailout several of their worst hit banks with some supporting recapitalization loans, because of the strong linkage between their survival and the financial stability of the economy. As of January 2009, a group of 10 central and eastern European banks had already asked for a bailout. At the time, the European Commission released a forecast of a 1.8% decline in EU economic output for 2009, making the outlook for the banks even worse. The many public funded bank recapitalizations, were one of the main reasons behind the sharply deteriorated debt-to-GDP ratios experienced by several European governments in the wake of the Great Recession, but can not solely be blamed for having caused eruption of the subsequently experienced sovereign debt-crisis - which only erupted in a limited number of European states. The main root causes for the four sovereign debt crisis erupting in Europe, were reportedly a mix of: Weak actual and potential growth; competitive weakness; liquidation of banks and sovereigns; large pre-existing debt-to-GDP ratios; and considerable liability stocks (government, private, and non-private sector).

A legal opinion issued Wednesday by an advisor to the European Union's top court helps clear the way for bigger stimulus measures from the European Central Bank, analysts said. The opinion from Pedro Cruz Villalon, an advocate general with the European Court of Justice, said that the ECB's offer in 2012 to buy government bonds of troubled countries was legal in principle. The earlier bond purchase programme, announced in 2012, helped calm market turmoil that was threatening to break up the euro bloc. The ECB never bought any bonds, but the mere offer reassured markets. Opponents in Germany, however, challenged the programme in court. They say the ECB overstepped its authority and violated a European Union treaty ban on the central bank directly helping governments. Yves Mersch, member of the ECB's executive board, welcomed the opinion and called it "an important milestone." Mersch said that while the opinion was limited to the 2012 bond-buying programme, it "clearly states it is the ECB which has sole responsibility for the conception, definition and implementation of monetary policy." Markets have been watching the case to learn whether the court might impose restrictions that could affect the ECB's plans for a new, larger stimulus programme also based on purchases of government bonds. Investors think the central bank may announce such large-scale purchases of government bonds at its January 22 meeting. The new programme would aim to foster growth and nudge up inflation.

Most economic experts say that the European Central Bank (ECB) will have to start buying government bonds soon in order to give a push to the struggling European economy. But at the same time, they doubt it will have any major impact on growth and jobs.

Allies of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi are threatened to topple the government if he is expelled from parliament. On its benchmark 10-year government bonds, the amount of interest Italy is having to offer is now above Spain's for the first time in 18 months. Italy's bond yields stayed the same while Spain's dropped slightly as Madrid reducing the size of its bond auctions for the rest of the year. By contrast Italy's Treasury wants to sell an additional 18 billion euros worth of bonds this year. That would raise the ceiling on this year's net debt issuance to 98 billion euros from 80 billion, That highlights the difficulty the government is having in reining in public spending. The higher issuance will lift Italy's massive public debt, already targeted at 130 percent of output this year, among the highest in the eurozone. In addition there are worries in the financial markets about the capitalisation of Italy's banks ahead of a major health check of all eurozone lenders by the European Central Bank in the coming months.

"Nico Nomist" Originally aired on ABC TV's 7.30: 14/07/2011 http://www.twitter.com/mrjohnclarke http://www.facebook.com/ClarkeAndDawe From Wiki: The Greek government-debt crisis is one of a number of current European sovereign-debt crises.. In late 2009, fears of a sovereign debt crisis developed among investors concerning Greece's ability to meet its debt obligations due to strong increase in government debt levels. This led to a crisis of confidence, indicated by a widening of bond yield spreads and the cost of risk insurance on credit default swaps compared to the other countries in the Eurozone, most importantly Germany. The downgrading of Greek government debt to junk bond status in April 2010 created alarm in financial markets, with bond yields rising so high, that private capital markets practically were no longer available for Greece as a funding source. On 2 May 2010, the Eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreed on a €110 billion bailout loan for Greece, conditional on the implementation of austerity measures. In October 2011, Eurozone leaders agreed to offer a second €130 billion bailout loan for Greece, conditional not only the implementation of another austerity package, but also that all private creditors holding Greek government bonds should sign a deal accepting a 53.5% face value loss. This proposed restructure of all Greek public debt held by private creditors, which constituted a 58% share of the total Greek public debt, would according to the bailout plan reduce the overall public debt burden with roughly €110 billion. A debt relief equal to a lowering of the debt-to-GDP ratio from a forecasted 198% in 2012 down to roughly 160% in 2012, with the lower interest payments in subsequent years combined with the agreed fiscal consolidation of the public budget and significant financial funding from a privatisation program, expected to give a further debt decline to a more sustainable level at 120.5% of GDP by 2020.

Government bonds are usually a safe place for people to park their money in times of economic uncertainty. But how uncertain must times be if German investors are buying up government bonds for almost no returns? That's what happened this past week - the return on the 10-year 'German Bund' fell below zero for the first time ever, meaning people are effectively paying the German government for the privilege of holding their money. This is something that hasn't been seen before and seems to indicate that Europe's economic problems are not going away. Low interest rates in combination with the new bond purchase phenomenon points to the issues becoming even worse, yet again. Former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis claims that Europe has failed in responding rationally to the initial crisis, and has actually placed itself in a further downward-facing trajectory. With EU investment rates at an historic low and saving rates at an historic high, interest rates will continue to plummet unless Europe is able to mobilise investments, says Varoufakis. Varoufakis also pinpoints the dangers Europe's deflating economy poses to the world economy, including China, the US, and emerging markets. But with political egos clashing and attempts to lay plans for future growth becoming secondary to government restructuring, will Europe seek improvement and change before it's too late? Also on this episode of Counting the Cost: Saudi Arabia into the future: With only eight months left in President Barack Obama's tenure in the Oval Office and Saudi Arabia's displeasure with the current US administration made very publicly known, what were Saudi officials aiming to achieve in their most recent visit to Washington? We take a look at Saudi Vision 2030 - the plan to diversify Saudi Arabia away from oil. As the oil price recovers, will Saudi Arabia stick to the plan of privatisation and creating employment outside of the public sector? And, more importantly, will the US continue to be an economic and political ally throughout? Russia out in the cold: President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, caused a lot of controversy this week as he sat centre-stage with the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Russia remains under international sanctions after the annexation of Crimea - but hundreds of businessmen flew in to do one thing: make deals. China and Mexico's amber alert: The Chinese thirst for luxury goods, and in particular the precious stone amber, has set the Mexican state of Chiapas alight. Miners in Simojovel, a municipality of Chiapas - Mexico's poorest state - dig in ungoverned caves, without any safety measures to protect them. But as Chinese interest rises, middle men and due violence interrupt the workflow from miner to buyer, making labourers the least likely to benefit from the resources in their own land.

Chavez, speaking to reporters at the end of a South American summit in Brazil, did not say how much had been transferred. Venezuela changed international reserves because of "threats from the US government," Chavez said. Chavez added that a man he claimed was good friends with US President George Bush, Pat Robertson, said publicly that Chavez should be killed. Venezuela could decide to put some of its foreign reserves into a proposed South American development bank, according to Chavez. He said that Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva had expressed interest in the idea.

Website: https://primedlifestyle.com/ Instagram: Primed Berkshire Hathaway Annual report: http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/letters/2013ltr.pdf Warren Buffett's favorite book -The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2AlojQc Tony Robbins Money Master the Game on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2zyz84n Audible 30 day free trail: https://goo.gl/x64Vb9 Warren Buffett - One of the most successful investor of all times with an estimated net worth of over 80 billion dollars to this date has shared his methods for investing. Having bought his first stock at 11 years of age and having $53,000 dollars to his name at 17, he sure knows a thing or two about this market. And even though he spent a lifetime developing his skills, he’s has shared some very straightforward advice about investing that anyone can take advantage of. Warren Buffett’s first rule is to simply think long term over short term. He might be going overboard with this concept and he is truly embracing it around his entire life. He still lives in the same house he bought in 1958 and is also working at the very same desk since 50 years back and doesn’t use a computer but traditional pen and paper. He’s been quoted saying he doesn’t throw anything away until he’s had it for at least 20-25 years. So thinking long term is natural for him and the ability to resist selling has proved to be very successful for him. So having that said the reason why he’s holding on to what he buys is because he does his homework and does so very well. He’s stated many times that he spends 80 % of his day reading and catching up with the latest news and what companies to invest in. He thinks about life and investing as learning as much as he can and reads between 600-1,000 pages every single day. However not many people have the time or money to read for 8 hours a day and invest a few billions in the biggest companies like Warren Buffet, and it’s not a strategy that anyone can apply and find success with. And I wanted to make a video explaining how absolutely anyone can invest and become rich without taking time to read and grasp what to invest in which is why I’m super excited to share this with you. So when reading the Berkshire Hathaway Annual report of 2013, one of the most interesting paragraphs I found was on page 20 where he gave a very simple and straightforward advice about investing. He says “My money is where my mouth is: What I advise here is essentially identical to certain instructions I’ve laid out in my will. So in his will he’s demanded that future of his family's money money should be invested such as this: Put 10% of the cash in short-term government bonds and 90% in a very low-cost S&P 500 index fund.” And he finishes it off by stating “I believe the trust’s long-term results from this policy will be superior to those attained by most investors” I told you it was straight forward. Don’t try to outplay the market but instead play with it. No man or machine can predict the ups and downs of the market, well except for Warren Buffett, so it would be foolish to try to beat it when you can simply join it. The very same formula was also mentioned in Tony Robbins book money master the game and index funds really seems to be the future of investments because the market will always rise in long term, and that’s essentially what you invest in - the market. The S&P 500 contains all the 500 largest companies that trade on NYSE and Nasdaq. Instead of picking stocks individually, you can now own a piece of all of the biggest companies such as Apple, Microsoft and Google. And investing in an index fund is very secure since a single company might go bankrupt, however the market will not. And you don’t have to stick to only the U.S market but could invest in the european and asian markets that’s also doing very well and you can even invest in global index funds to own a part of the biggest companies in the world. And for the other 10 %, the short-term government bonds is a very low risk low cost alternative that is also offered by vanguard amongst others. Short-term bonds are very attractive to investors because of they’re very stable and consistently rising, however the return tends to be smaller. And I’ll finish it off through Warren Buffett’s words: “The goal of the non-professional should not be to pick winners but should rather be to own a cross-section of businesses that in aggregate are bound to do well.” Music: Life of Riley by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1400054 Artist: http://incompetech.com/

The European Central Bank should be cautious about whether to buy sovereign bonds from euro-zone countries, ECB Governing Council member Ewald Nowotny was quoted as saying by Japan's Nikkei financial newspaper. The Austrian central bank chief said in an Oct. 28 interview that the ECB should not be swayed by market pressure and should not be expected to pull a rabbit out of its hat at each policy meeting, the Nikkei reported on Tuesday. To help support the flagging euro zone economy, the ECB, which meets on Thursday, has cut interest rates to record lows, offered banks cheap, long-term loans and begun buying private-sector assets. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/news/economy/~3/v9xJtXgcwX0/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Protesters in Kiev on Tuesday rejected Russia's announcement that it had bought 3 (b) billion dollars worth of Ukrainian bonds in a bid to support its neighbour's economy. Protesters said the aid package is the beginning of a debt that can never be repaid. Last week, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych secured a deal with his Russian counterpart Vladmir Putin whereby Russia would slash gas prices for Ukraine and buy 15 (b) billion dollars worth of Ukrainian government bonds. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced that Russia bought the first batch of bonds worth 3 (b) billion on Monday, but did not indicate when his country was going to buy more Ukrainian debt. Following this, Medvedev met with Ukraine's Prime Minister Mykola Azarov in Moscow on Tuesday. Yanukovych has faced daily protests against his surprise decision last month to drop a landmark deal with the European Union (EU) in favour of closer alignment with Russia. Protesters have rallied in Kiev's Independence Square, at times clashing with police. The opposition has called for Yanukovych to step down, saying the agreements are a sell-out. However, Azarov said Russia's bond purchase has helped pull Ukraine from the financial abyss. One protester, Sergye Vorozhtsov, called it "the selling of Ukraine." "Yanukovych didn't have the authority to do this," protester Dmytro Kushnir said. "The parliament didn't give him the authority to do it, so it is his problem and I believe that we will prove it, and justice will prevail," he added.

European Central Bank officials have agreed to buy Eurozone government bonds to fight the continental debt crisis. Although it's not clear yet which bonds the bank is going to buy - experts expect them to be from debt-laden countries like Italy and Spain. That's after the German government reportedly admitted that the EU rescue fund won't be able to save Italy, the Eurozone's third biggest economy, if it needs help. The G7 group of the most-industrialised nations are also vowing to support financial stability and welcomed what it called 'decisive actions taken in the U.S. and Europe'. But financier and author Patrick Young says the EU needs to change tack immediately.
