You'll soon hear about how this has already rolled up the ladder into the ALT-A segment to the "No Documentation", "Stated", "No ratio" loans with high CLTV's for 2nd homes, investment properties and some primary residences. Many of these loans are non-performing now and will be shipped back to the funders. This will hit their books for back adjusted earnings going back a couple of quarters.

Not fighting the forces here. Just saying that the problem was not somehow a one week blip in the mortgage world. The mortgage business had a major shift. In fact I think the sub prime issue is still in its infancy but a greater problem looms in the ALT-A business which dwarfs sub prime. No ddomsdayer here just find it odd how this is suddenly made it on the radar screen. The problem has been created for a few years and we are just now hearing about. And please do keep in mind that the mortgage professionals are not financial geniuses so their device is even more flawed than that of LTCM all IMO of course.

More scalps for mortgage belt

Signs that the crisis in the US subprime mortgage market is spreading to higher-quality mortgage loans contributed to a dramatic sell-off in credit and equity markets this week, as lenders reported significantly lower second-quarter earnings and investors ran aground on mortgage-related losses.

The latest bout of mortgage market malaise centres on so-called “Alt-A” home loans, in which late payments and defaults are running at four times the historical rate.

IndyMac Bancorp, one of the US largest independent home lenders and one of the largest Alt-A lenders, posted a 57 per cent drop in second-quarter profit as the volume of soured loans more than quadrupled
Soaring default and foreclosure rates are not limited to subprime and Alt-A mortgages. Countrywide – the largest mortgage lender in the US – admitted last week that the same goes for prime home loans. This has triggered the most aggressive tightening of mortgage lending standards on record.

Syd that is a very good report. It identifies the type of assets Macquarie had purchased on behalf of their clients. That it consisted of securities issued by private-equity institutions should in itself ring alarm bells. That these securities were regarded as secured yet on a mark-to-market basis they have lost 25% of their value should send a shrill warning to investors.
The other point the writer makes is that due to strength of the global economy analysts believe that the problem can be contained to financial markets. Baloney! The markets service industry. Risk margins are increasing which will mean many projects will not get off the ground because of increased CAPM considerations.
Ramifications of this turmoil will be felt months down the track. By November banks in London will be feeling the pressure as deals dry up. The City is going to suffer and with it the UK economy. I am sure this will be on the minds of the MPC mebers when they meet tonight.

Liquidity alarm bells sound
By Paul J Davies, Gillian Tett, Joanna Chung and Stacy-Marie Ishmael
August 1 2007 21:57

When an ordinary sounding Australian mutual fund run by Macquarie Bank’s asset management division warned investors they could lose up to 25 per cent of their money this week it was shocking for two reasons.

First, it was a retail fund, so the investors were everyday people. Second, their money had not been anywhere near US subprime mortgages, which have been at the centre of recent market turmoil.

Credit market contagion
The subprime virus has gone global. Starting as a localised outbreak in the US market for risky subprime mortgages, it has spread into the supposedly safer “Alt-A” tier and even into prime mortgages. Meanwhile, it has crossed into other loan species – particularly leveraged lending, where ballooning spreads have rattled the market and left banks holding big chunks of debt. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/9d568af4-405a-11dc-9d0c-0000779fd2ac.html

Macquarie Bank it doesn't have direct exposure to the funds but the share price fell on expectations that the bank's reputation could be hurt by developments at Fortress.

Lucas defended comments made by Macquarie Bank Chief Executive Allan Moss in July that Macquarie Bank doesn't have an exposure to U.S. subprime mortgages and that a widening in credit yield spreads at that time would have little impact on Macquarie. "Allan's statement was that we had no meaningful exposure," he said.

He also said that the losses incurred by the Fortress funds are so far "substantially unrealized" and that he expects that "the companies that we lent money to will repay their interest obligations when they're due and the principal when it's due."

"A run by investors on redemptions would simply mean that we need to sell some of the loans in the portfolio and there is liquidity in the loan market, we can sell loans, albeit we're selling them at (levels) that reflect less than 100 cents in the dollar," he said.

If investors in Fortress "wish to redeem at these levels and actually realize the loss, then they're free to," Lucas said

Analysts speculated that automatic, computer-generated trades might have played a role in the rally. Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist with Standard & Poor’s, said trading programs may have kicked in once it appeared stocks were not headed considerably lower.

“That could present a buy opportunity,” he said, noting that trading programs have also helped accelerate the market’s decline recently. “What the technicals taketh away, they can give back.”

Two huge hedge funds run by Paul Tudor Jones's Tudor Investment Corp., which manages more than $20 billion, suffered sizable losses in July.
The Raptor Fund, a $9 billion hedge fund run by James Pallotta in Boston, dropped 9% in the month, and is down almost 3% so far in 2007, investors who have seen the data said Wednesday. The fund that Jones runs in Greenwich, Conn., the $10.3 billion Tudor BVI Fund, lost just over 3% through July 27, although it is up 4.6% for the year.

The losses are surprising because both managers have among the best track records in the hedge-fund world. Some investors said the results were disappointing, but noted that Jones has scored an average annual return of over 24% since launching his fund in 1986, while Pallotta has generated gains of over 19% since 1993.
Investors have been waiting to see how hedge funds fared in July, a difficult month in various markets that saw $3 billion hedge fund Sowood Capital collapse after losing more than 50% of its assets.

- I was looking the 200 day MA which held the drop in March;

this time it looks the dip was a bit shallower and followed at present by a consolidation -- given the US equities snap back in + territory we might have seen the low of the current phase

>> I wonder since we saw a drop in Feb and a correction in recent weeks - - the market quity easy overcomes bad news and goes back to bullish mode...
-- if now we go back to new highs then what you people think the Third correction will look like?

I know too many bad scenarios were posted here all year - but if adverse market reaction was escaped twice - then is it possible to see an Autumn - like in 1987 or 1998 (LTCM)?

He get's to spend money that a whole lot of people send to him, just so he can spend it for them. I know you think that's funny, but some people have so much money that they have a really hard time finding ways to spend it.

Every month Mr. Fund Manager finds piles of money delivered right to his door.

Do you like to spend money. I sure do. It's fun.

More Reckoning Due As Hedge Funds Mark To Market

"Hedge funds' mishaps have been in the headlines. Unfortunately, investors should probably brace for more to come," says Merrill strategist Richard Bernstein. With month-end marks-to-market made on many fund holdings, it's likely "many hedge funds will be shocked by how low their marks are," he says. "The combination of a down market and liquidity drying up in many debt instruments is likely to make many intra-month evaluations now appear quite rosy." Bernstein adds: "Short-term investors in other overvalued speculative assets, like commodities and emerging markets, should learn from the current mishaps in the debt markets. Supposedly liquid securities can rapidly become illiquid."

Sub-prime lending ends in tears
AT the height of the lending frenzy in the US's sub-prime mortgage market, borrowers could get what were known as ninja loans - no income, no job, no assets.
When markets depart this far from prudent lending practice, financial disaster isn't far away, and it has arrived big time for highly leveraged sub-prime mortgage lenders and investors in the securities they issued.
But the issue now isn't the sub-prime market itself, but how far through the financial system the tremors from the earthquake in sub-prime lending will spread.
The plunge on Wall Street and the 3 per cent dive in Australian shares yesterday are high-profile signals of the spread of the sub-prime train wreck through US markets and across the Pacific to Australia.
Markets throughout the region suffered similar declines.
But this is the tip of the iceberg, The real problems are in credit markets, where liquidity has rapidly dried up, both for leveraged buyouts by private equity players and the hedge funds and others, who are seeing the value of their assets going down the gurgler.

excerpt from briefing.com Bond Watch

The market is ripe with rumor as players talk about huge, huge shops liquidating "stuff, unloading enormous amounts of bunds" unwinding dollar/yen positions in order to have some liquidity & be positioned to pick-up exploding hedge-funds. They are not in a position to pick-up anything "high-end," but to "Hoover-up some small guys," & look like heroes, even as their stock is down "20 to 21%" on the year.

Oddo & Cie, a French stockbroker and money manager, plans to close three funds totaling 1 billion euros ($1.37 billion), citing the ``unprecedented'' crisis in the U.S. asset-backed securities market.

Oddo said it will wind down the funds within the ``shortest possible time frame'' because of a plunge in prices for collateralized debt obligations, notes backed by other bonds, loans and their derivatives

Re: BZH, Beazer Homes. Rumors about an hour ago that the company would go belly up knocked it down 21% and took home building stocks down with it. All have since recovered most of losses as company is defended by Goldman.

It's a minefield out there and I'm sure the Big Brokerages will jump in to defend. Their stocks are down enough as it is without a "panic".

Investors Jittery About Home Depot's Buyback
22.5 billion share repurchase was supposed to prop up the stock until the U.S. housing market and the retailer's sales perk up. But recent turmoil in credit markets has heightened investor uncertainty about the repurchase. Indeed, Home Depot shares, recently at about $37, have underperformed major market indexes in recent weeks and are below the low end of the company's tender offer of $39 to $44 a share.
"Dynamics of the tender offer that were expected to lend near term support are seemingly backfiring," said Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Fassler in a note to clients while reiterating the firm's buy rating on shares.

November, by which time the ramifications of the fall out from the financial markets will become apparent. At this time the City's contribution to the UK economy will begin to wane. GDP will begin to fall, tax receipts will decline, Christmas bonuses will not be as large or as common as last year as deals start to dry up. London property prices will be declining as M&A activity especially disappears.
While the Americans will be hardest hit the City will not be far behind. Certainly tomorrow before they announce their decision the members of the MPC will discuss this topic and the ramifications of a further rate increase.

The clear and present danger for the global boom is a credit crunch. "Tranche warfare" has broken out in the capital markets. Over the past couple of years, Wall Street's alchemists discovered how to convert junk mortgages, bonds, and loans into AAA credits by packaging them as CDOs for the bonds and CLOs for the loans. These credit pools are divided into frontline tranches of pawns that defended the kings and queens. The pawns are getting killed by rising foreclosures in the subprime mortgage market, leaving the better credits exposed. Suddenly, private equity firms and their bankers can't refinance their bridge loans using these pools. The market for "covenant-lite" bonds and loans has seized up.

This is really the first big stress test of the global boom.

What I find disconcerting is the failure of GBPUSD to break below its last relative low at 2.0175 (5th wave failure or what we saw was not impulsive but the b wave ending and a c-wave of a terminal fifth is beginning scary as that would imply yet a new high in cable). That seems to imply that the mighty beast hasnt rolled over and died just yet. So the whip saw back up may be doubly fuelled by the soft shorters in cable. I think it may be the safer bet throan pure yen play.

price action in G/J cross is looking good for the big correction move. 243.00 may get tested quite soon. On the Equities side im expecting it to be bounce day after an initial follow through. We seem to have formed a double bottom following a five wave decline. So if the count is right we correct back up possibly even to .618 of the move. Ill be looking to buy dips of the carry vehicles.

US stocks tumbled in late trading on Tuesday as investors responded to more bad news about the mortgage market, ending the worst month for US equities in three years. Stocks gave back earlier gains as two mortgage insurers warned of a possible $1bn subprime loss and shares in American Home Mortgage Investment, a leading lender, plunged 90 per cent after it said it could no longer fund home loans. Mortgage Guaranty Investment Corp and Radian Group, two mortgage insurers, slid after they said their investment of more than $1bn (combined) in a subprime mortgage company, C-Bass, may be worthless.

AUD has come under heavy pressure from decreasing risk appetite and unwinding of carry trades, with AUD/USD falling sharply from recent multi-years high of 0.8870, notes Commerzbank. However, says recent domestic data (CPI, credit growth, retail sales) have been strong, and the fundamental picture supports the market view of a rate hike to 5.50% in August. Remains cautious of another high-yield selloff if risk aversion suddenly picks up again, but thinks AUD/USD will try and find a base in the 0.85-0.84 area ahead of next week's RBA rate decision. However, in the current climate, gains are likely to be slow and hard to realize. AUD/USD currently trades at 0.8468.

Investors will be listening intently when the world's biggest insurance companies report financial results in coming weeks, anxious to hear new evidence about whether the pain from subprime-mortgage debt is spreading further.

Insurers primarily make money by collecting premiums and investing that money in the markets, aiming to earn more than they pay out in claims and expenses over time. As a result, they are among the world's biggest investors. And they are particularly big holders of bonds since they need cash available to pay claims.

Most of the industry's biggest players world-wide -- including American International Group Inc., Allianz SE in Germany, and AXA SA in France -- are expected to report results over the next three weeks. By and large, analysts say, the industry appears to have paltry direct exposure to the bonds backed by U.S. mortgage debt that was extended to the least creditworthy borrowers, which is now rocking credit markets.

More bad news for the hedge funds. It is as if the press were finally waking up to what hedge funds really are - a way to separate a rich fool from his money.

Hedge funds, like all public spectacles, begin with deception. How could anyone paying 2% in fees and 20% in profits ever hope to make much money after taxes? Yet, some of the savviest investors believed they could.

Australia's retail sales rose the most in two years in June as job gains and higher wages prompted consumers to spend more at bars, restaurants and clothing stores.

Sales advanced 1.4 percent from May, when they fell a revised 0.3 percent, the Bureau of Statistics said in Sydney today. The median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey of 25 economists was for a 1 percent gain.

Japanese land prices in 2007 rose at the fastest pace in at least 15 years, a government survey showed Wednesday, suggesting the country is fully out of real-estate deflation.
According to a survey taken by National Tax Agency, the average price of land throughout the country as of Jan. 1 was up 8.6% from the previous year. It was the second straight year of increase after a 0.9% rise in 2006, which was the first gain in 14 years. The increase was led by a jump in prices in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, the country's three major urban areas. Prices in Tokyo surged 13.1%, marking the first double-digit growth ever since the NTA began taking the survey in 1992. Nagoya saw an increase of 9.1%, followed by the Osaka area with 8.1%. The data also showed that the recovery in land prices isn't limited to the major cities, but is gradually spreading to other areas in the country. Of Japan's 47 prefectures, 12 logged a rise, a tremendous increase from only five in the previous year. In the remaining 35 prefectures, the rate of decline slowed or stopped in 30, with only one widening its pace of fall from the previous survey. As a result, the decline in land prices excluding the three major urban areas has come to a halt for the first time since 1993. The tax agency conducts the survey to calculate land inheritance taxes.

USD/JPY may manage to hover above 118 in Asia, as non-fund players not willing to push pair down during Tokyo hours due to strong buying interest from Japan players, says Mizuho Corporate Bank's senior dealer Masashi Matsuzawa. "I don't think breaking below 118 is easy, but in London or New York hours, players will at least attempt (to push pair down) since a lot of liquidity will be provided in those hours." Adds, USD/JPY not paying much attention to Japan stocks; "unless it falls drastically, say 3%, players will keep their eyes on New York."

The U.K.-based company, which offers music, videos and DVDs at its retail outlets, will sell its stakes in HMV Japan KK and HMV Retail Ltd. to Daiwa Securities SMBC Principal Investments Co.

HMV Group plans to use proceeds from the sale of its Japanese businesses to pay down debt.

A study by JPMorgan shows that the largest amount of subprime loans occurred in 2005, followed closely by those extended in 2006. This means that the subprime problem isn't going to go away quickly and will continue for the rest of this year and all of 2008.

More on BSC...from briefing.com.

The Wall Street Journal reports BSC already forced to shut two hedge funds that bet heavily on the risky subprime-mortgage market, is now facing big losses in a third fund that has roughly $900 mln in mortgage investments, according to people familiar with the matter. The fund, known as the Bear Stearns Asset-Backed Securities Fund, ran into trouble in July and has refused to return investors' money for the moment, according to these people. One of these people said the redemption requests were postponed in hopes that the fund's assets would rebound in value. The fund contains a range of mortgages, but only a small slice of them that are considered subprime, the area that has given so many firms heartburn in recent weeks. Unlike the two other Bear funds that are being closed, this fund is not leveraged. The asset-backed fund was up about 5% between the beginning of the year and the end of June according to these people. But faced with a slew of mortgage markdowns in July, its performance appears to have plummeted. It is not known how much, if anything, BSCns of the fund... The decline of the asset-backed fund is yet another setback for Bear's embattled money-management unit, Bear Stearns Asset Management. The weakening and eventual failure of two structured credit funds in June and July, known as the High-Grade Structured Credit Strategies Fund and the High-Grade Structured Credit Strategies Enhanced Leverage Fund, lost investors as much as $1.6 billion in equity and forced the ouster of the unit's chairman. "There are no plans to shut down the fund," said Russell Sherman, a Bear spokesman. "We believe the fund portfolio is well positioned to wait out the market uncertainty. And we believe by suspending redemptions, we can ensure the best long term results for our investors. We don't believe it's prudent or in the interest of our investors to sell assets in this current market environment."
