Canadians Halt Options Trading With California Residents Due To Unpaid Bills
09-02-2009  •  Zero Hedge 
This is what happens when you live in a bankrupt state: one by one the big exchanges stop trading with you. Please be advised that there has been an unforeseen delay in renewing CDCC’s annual application with the State of California. Due to this delay, CDCC options may not at this time and until further notice be sold or offered for sale in the state of California and to California residents until the annual application process is completed. How does one now buy December $0 Puts on Sacramento? Perhaps Arnie can do another garage sale and pay up before the NYSE and NASDAQ follow suit and block all equity trading for Californians.   Read Full Story

Bush's Third Term? You're Living It
09-02-2009  •  Huffington Post 
If Bush were still "the decider" he'd be employing mercenaries like Blackwater and propagandists like the Rendon Group and he might even be expanding the number of private security contractors in Afghanistan. In fact, the whole executive branch would be packed with disreputable corporate executive types. You'd have somebody like John ("May I torture this one some more, please?") Rizzo still serving, at least for a while, as general counsel at the CIA. The White House and Justice Department would be crawling with corporate cronies, people like John Brennan, Greg Craig, James Jones, and Eric Holder. Most of the top prosecutors hired at the Department of Justice for political purposes would still be on the job. And political prisoners, like former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and former top Democratic donor Paul Minor would still be abandoned to their fate. In addition, the bank bailouts Bush and his economic team initiated in his second term would still b  Read Full Story

Fed minutes: officials saw recession's end in Aug.
09-02-2009  •  Business Week 
LMAO sure does not look that way! With the economy on the mend, Federal Reserve policymakers last month felt comfortable slowing the pace of one of its economic revival programs and not changing any others, according to documents released Wednesday. Minutes of the central bank's closed door deliberations, held Aug. 11-12, also showed Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and his colleagues striking a much more hopeful note about the economy's prospects compared with an assessment made in late June. Many Fed officials saw "smaller downside risks," the documents stated. Fed officials expected the pace of the recovery to "pick up" in 2010, but there was a range of views -- and considerable uncertainty -- about the likely strength of the upturn because of concerns about how consumers will behave. After being pounded by the recession, consumer spending finally appeared to be leveling out, the housing market was firming and manufacturing was stabilizing, the Fed  Read Full Story

298,000 Jobs Shed in August, ADP Says
09-02-2009  •  Business Week 
Private non-farm employers cut 298,000 jobs in August, according to estimates by payroll company ADP, a figure that disappointed analysts’ expectations but still showed a gradual easing of job losses. Businesses with fewer than 50 employees lost 122,000 jobs in August, the smallest decline since September 2008, according to the report. Mid-size businesses (with between 50 and 500 employees) lost 116,000 jobs, and large companies lost 60,000. While that sounds like small businesses bear the brunt of job losses, it’s less severe when you consider that they account for a larger share of employment, says Joel Prakken, chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers, which developed the report. Monthly job losses will continue to diminish for several months before employment hits bottom around the end of this year, Prakken says. He expects positive employment growth in 2010. The total 298,000 jobs lost was more severe than analysts’ expectations of around 250,000 but not so far off that it’s stati  Read Full Story

Head Of China Sovereign Wealth Fund Openly Admits Asset Bubble Addressed By Creation Of More Bubbles
09-02-2009  •  Zero Hedge 
In a phenomenal demonstration of frankness and true economic assessment, the head of the China Investment Council, Lou Jiwei, who controls China's $298 billion sovereign wealth fund, admits the ponzi nature of today's markets: Both China and America are addressing bubbles by creating more bubbles and we're just taking advantage of that. So we can't lose. Indeed, they can't lose thanks to the criminal silence on behalf of Mr. Jiwei's US financial counterparties. It doesn't get any simpler than that folks. Keep in mind Madoff was thrown in jail for a few hundred years for much less: what's $55 billion when you are dealing with a $20 trillion+ global equity market Ponzi scheme. And yet both China and the US continue their struggle to perpetuate a Ponzi, with the full implicit backing of all financial, regulatory and legal authorities. The system is now officially broken, even ignoring the conspiratorial ramblings of fringe bloggers. And as for who, a  Read Full Story

McStupid: Mortgage Banker's Association
09-02-2009  •  The Market Ticker 
VIDEO... Do those three things and even in severe recessions you don't have a major problem with defaults. You also don't get speculative property bubbles because as soon as prices try to rise above affordable maximums for the income in a given area the supply of buyers who can meet the ratios disappear. Enact this into the law with a provision that any loan found to be funded outside of these ratios is deemed predatory and subject to rescission and the problem is solved. Anything else is subject to being gamed and is simply an attempt to steal - again - from the taxpayers. These lobbying and "trade" organizations need to be recognized as what they are - a blatant device to game regulatory processes for the purpose of foisting off risk to the taxpayer while pocketing as much money as is possible for private interests.

The Expensive Home Buyer Tax Credit
09-02-2009  •  Wall St. Pit 
One of the more interesting numbers to come out yesterday was the cost per marginal homeowner of the $8000 first time homebuyer tax credit. It’s a rather astounding $43,000. That’s what it costs to lure those that wouldn’t have bought into the market.With regards to the tax credit, what really matters is the cost per additional home sold. And as I pointed out earlier today, even using the NAR numbers, the cost per additional home sold is $43.4 thousand. Here is the math: 1.9 million buyers qualify for the credit (the NAR estimates between 1.8 and 2.0 million) = $15.2 billion. The NAR estimates the tax credit resulted in 350 thousand additional purchases. So divide $15.2 billion by 350 thousand = $43,000 per additional home. And the numbers will get worse if the program is extended. This is not a trivial point as what’s at stake here is once again a government program that picks winners and then uses the fisc to subsidize those so chosen.

Today’s roundup of stimulus coverage: More than half of all stimulus contracts awarded so far are “cost-type” contracts, even though the administration told federal agencies in February to aggressively avoid this type of risky agreement, Government Executive reports. Of the $10.18 billion in stimulus contracts obligated as of Aug. 28, 53 percent are cost-type contracts, in which the government commits to reimburse the contractor for allowable costs. Language in the Recovery Act directs agencies to utilize fixed-price contracts (in which the contractor assumes the bulk of the risk for running over cost) “to the maximum extent possible.”  Read Full Story

Fed Will Now Monetize The Most Recently Issued Agencies

The Federal Reserve announced earlier a shift in its strategy in purchasing Agency debt, whereby it would purchase almost exclusively the most recently issued Agency paper: Prior to August 31, 2009, purchases were focused on off-the-run securities in that category. Going forward, purchases will include on-the-run securities in that category. This change represents a technical adjustment designed to mitigate market dislocations and to promote overall market functioning. Over the course of the program, the Federal Reserve may change the scope of purchasable securities. "Overall market function" is a wonderful euphemism for attaining a sufficiently high stock price for commercial banks so that when the FASB requires off-balance sheet items to be reincorporated on their respective balance sheets at the end of the year, we don't have another massive bank raid once every single emperor's clothes are proven to be non existent as Tier 1 Capital Ratios start collapsing l  Read Full Story

Like Ben Bernanke today, Nicholas Biddle cultivated the veneer of a benign civil servant calculating serenely far above the political fray. In reality he, like Bernanke, was up to his neck in the backroom game of power. When Biddle's bureaucratic cradle was rocked, he quickly morphed into a Machiavellian monster. Keep that in mind as Ben Bernanke gets progressively cornered by Ron Paul and the bourgeoning anti-Fed movement. (Already the Fed is less popular than the IRS.) When you hear about the Federal Reserve Transparency Act getting stalled in committee, think of Daniel Webster, bought and paid for with central bank money.

Auto sales for August were released today. Overall, the SAAR (Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate of sales) was boosted for the month of August, although it fell well below expectations. Goldman Sachs had been forecasting SAAR for August would be 15.5% - it came in at 13.7 million (this is the annualized rate of sales based on actual sales for the month). Worse yet, the numbers for the domestic producers, Ford, GM and Chrysler, fell way below expectations. Ford's sales rose 17% in August vs. 2008, but a 38% rise was anticipated. GM's sales dropped 20% from a year ago and Chrysler's fell 15%. How did this happen? Here's the top-10 cars sold by brand, according to Edmunds.com: 1) Toyota Corolla 2) Honda Civic 3) Ford Focus 4) Toyota Camry 5) Toyota Prius 6) Hyundai Elantra 7) Ford Escape 8) Honda Fit 9) Nissan Versa 10) Honda CR-V You can see the problem here.

Industry Seeks Fannie, Freddie Overhaul
09-02-2009  •  WSJ 
A mortgage-industry trade group is calling for Congress to transform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into several smaller privately held companies that would issue mortgage securities carrying an explicit government guarantee. The proposed framework, to be released Wednesday by the Mortgage Bankers Association, would give successor entities to Fannie and Freddie the authority to create securities backed by certain types of mortgages. The new companies would guarantee the securities against defaults on the underlying mortgages. Some foreign investors in China and elsewhere lost confidence in that fuzzy implied guarantee last year and reduced their holdings of the companies' debt, though the U.S. government has propped up Fannie and Freddie with capital infusions. "If we're going to restore and maintain investor confidence and...consistent liquidity, that is going to require an explicit backstop," said John Courson, chief executive and president of the MBA.
