Insurance Companies Sue Bank Of America Over "Massive Mortgage Fraud"

another one. this time AMBAC v JPMorgan/Bear Stearns

"
Former Bear Stearns mortgage executives who now run mortgage divisions of Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Ally Financial have been accused of cheating and defrauding investors through the mortgage securities they created and sold while at Bear. According to e-mails and internal audits, JPMorgan had known about this fraud since the spring of 2008, but hid it from the public eye through legal maneuvering. Last week a lawsuit filed in 2008 by mortgage insurer Ambac Assurance Corp against Bear Stearns and JPMorgan was unsealed. The lawsuit's supporting e-mails, going back as far as 2005, highlight Bear traders telling their superiors they were selling investors like Ambac a "sack of censored."

After the revolution in Tunisia, observers are wondering if governments in other North African states could also fall. In a SPIEGEL interview, Egyptian Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mohamed ElBaradei talks about the consequences for the regime in Cairo and his hope that Egyptians can copy the Tunisians' example.

A man attempts to set himself on fire in Cairo: The self-immolation that set off the protests that toppled Tunisia's leader has inspired copycats in other North African states.
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and Israeli Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom don't have all that much in common, but they do share one thing: Neither thinks much of the revolution in Tunisia.

AUD/USD and NZD/USD outlook next 24 hours: Nothing on the cards for AUD due to the Australia Day holiday, while the main risk for NZD is a strongly dovish statement from the RBNZ tomorrow morning, which could unwind the most recent NZD/AUD gains. Beyond these factors, it's likely that both currencies will continue to chase the EUR, and despite the muted initial response, the extent of market support for the EFSF is a positive sign for the common currency.

Today, the Fed's openly fraudulent operations desk will buy back $6-8 billion of bonds maturing between 01/31/2015 – 06/30/2016 starting at 10:15 am Eastern. Below we present a table showing the 10 cheapest CUSIPs that the Fed SHOULD be buying, considering that it should be monetizing, as it is supposed to, the best bang for the buck bonds.

Note that nowehere in the list is CUSIP 912828PM6 due 12/31/2015 or the last 5 Year auctioned off, which is in fact one of the bonds trading richest relative to the entire spline.

And here is the result. Note the red CUSIP, which was 71.1% of total!

Euro seems more of a sideshow today but just bounced off 1.3617 again for an intra-day triple top. Odd level for resistance. Above it is resistance at 1.3628 and 1.3638. Below it keeps focus on supports at 1.3587, 1.3576, 1.3572 (day low). EUR/CHF still under pressure (low 1.2825).

12:00 GMT (Global-View.com) January 25 - The market was thrown a curveball today as the initial focus on the first EFSF bond issue (euro positive) was replaced by a sell-off in GBP following the surprise contraction in 4Q10 GDP. This has seen the GBP fall sharply both vs. the dollar and on its crosses, GBP/USD testing its 100 day mva at 1.5756 (note green line on the daily chart). Low has so far been 1.5748. The 20 day mva is at 1.5696 and 50 day mva at 1.5681. See FX Chart Points

This has created a mixed picture for the dollar with lags in other pairs vs. the dollar out of weaker GBP crosses. This includes the EUR/USD, which retreated from a 2-day double top at 1.3686 but paused above yesterday’s 1.3540 low as a firmer eur/gbp has offset some of the impact of a weaker eur/chf and eur/jpy. This low would need to be taken out to shift the focus to 1.35. On the upside, only a break of 1.3686 would be significant.

Canadian Consumer Price Index
IMPACT = HiGH

The CPI is an index designed to measure the change in price of a fixed market basket of goods and services. The market basket of goods and services is representative of the purchases of a typical consumer. Most countries have an alternate measure of inflation where they exclude volatile items, such as food and energy, to arrive at a measure of underlying inflation. Colloquially, this is usually referred to as “core” inflation. Core inflation can be a useful analytical tool.

Many Central banks explicitly target inflation levels. An acceleration or deceleration of inflation may signal that a change in monetary policy might be appropriate.

A slowdown in the last three months of 2010 puts paid to any talk of a U.K. rate hike, and ups the chances of recession. "These are a disappointing set of numbers and should dash any threat of a rise in interest rates in the near future," Azad Zangana, European economist at Schroders says. If the economy contracts over the first three months of 2011, then the U.K. would head back into a technical recession, he notes, adding this is "something the UK has been very prone to in the past."

"The problem is focused on a realistic valuation of non-performing loans in the banks, as well as updated valuations of real-estate assets in the balances," Link Securities added.
The clean-up of banks is a key part of Spain's effort to shore up investor confidence in the euro zone's fourth-largest economy.

Housing market conditions 'tipped to worsen'
HOUSING market conditions are expected to worsen over the next 12 months, following last year's interest rate rises and ongoing tight credit conditions.Of the effect of the flooding in Queensland, NAB Group chief economist Alan Oster said the next residential survey "will be worse". Mr Oster said the survey was conducted from late November last year to early December, before the worst of the rains hit Australia's east coast.

Ireland's Voters Ready to Confront Rest of Euro Zone
Whenever it happens, Ireland's general election will mark the first clash between the desires of voters in a euro-zone nation that is in receipt of help from its brethren, and the declared interests of the currency area as a whole.

"Chancellor [Angela] Merkel made the common-sense observation that investors who take a risk should not be given complete cover by sovereign governments. However, her approach seems to be that of St. Augustine: 'make me chaste, but not yet.' She and other EU leaders have not yet accepted that part of the solution to the current banking and economic crises, never mind the next one, is appropriate burden-sharing between taxpayers and investors."
They fear any restructuring of the bonds would spook investors and prompt them to withdraw their money from other banks around the bloc.

Without the existence of the €67.5 billion ($92 billion) bailout granted by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund late last year, holders of the bank bonds would be feeling very nervous indeed

The biggest area of concern remains Europe, where sovereign debt issues and questions about some of the region's banks have led to an increasing amount of turbulence. The financial rescues of Greece and Ireland, as well as the potential for other countries to need aid, will continue to hurt market confidence in the region, the IMF said.
"In particular, continued market pressures could result in serious funding pressures for major banks and sovereigns, increasing the likelihood that problems spill over to core countries," the report said. Euro-area countries should move aggressively to combat these problems by embracing more rigorous stress tests of the region's banks, as well as an expansion of the scope and size of the European Financial Stability Facility. The key is to try and decouple the risks to the economy caused by both sovereign and banking risks, the report said.

A Hefty Price for Entry to Davos
By ANDREW ROSS SORKIN

Just to have the opportunity to be invited to Davos, you must be invited to be a member of the World Economic Forum, a Swiss nonprofit that was founded by Klaus Schwab, a German-born academic who managed to build a global conference in the snow.

There are several levels of membership: the basic level, which will get you one invitation to Davos, costs 50,000 Swiss francs, or about $52,000. The ticket itself is another 18,000 Swiss francs ($19,000), plus tax, bringing the total cost of membership and entrance fee to $71,000.

But that fee just gets you in the door with the masses at Davos, with entry to all the general sessions. If you want to be invited behind the velvet rope to participate in private sessions among your industry’s peers, you need to step up to the “Industry Associate” level. That costs $137,000, plus the price of the ticket, bringing the total to about $156,000.

Of course, most C.E.O.’s don’t like going anywhere alone, so they might ask a colleague along. Well, the World Economic Forum doesn’t just let you buy an additional ticket for $19,000. Instead, you need to upgrade your annual membership to the “Industry Partner” level. That will set you back about $263,000, plus the cost of two tickets, bringing the total to $301,000.

Australia Benign 4Q Inflation To Stay RBA's Hand Until Late 2011
Reply   
Riki Polygenis, senior economist at the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd., said it will be near impossible for the RBA to justify a hike in interest rates over coming months. "The economy is clearly responding to tighter monetary conditions," she said.
The RBA's policy-making board meets next week and is expected to keep the cash rate on hold at 4.75%.
Economists say the floods, which brought Queensland's coal industry to a virtual standstill, could slug gross domestic product by around one percentage point in the first quarter.
Also Tuesday, one of Australia's big four banks forecast falls in house prices in 2011, removing one of the key concerns the central bank has about the economy in recent years.
National house price expectations have now turned negative, with falls of 0.5% over the next 12 months likely, the National Australia Bank survey said. The picture is a far cry from that of recent years when house prices growth frequently reached double figures, fueling talk of a house price bubble.
Alan Oster, chief economist at NAB, said that once the effect of the floods are counted, the downward pull on house prices in Brisbane will likely be increased.
"The Reserve Bank will be very comfortable with the direction of house prices for now," Oster added.
Clothing and footwear prices fell sharply through the fourth quarter, the ABS said, highlighting a difficult period for retailers.

It will make fascinating reading for financial journalists, real-estate agents, and, more importantly, tax inspectors in the home countries of the people on Elmer’s list

Platinum : Heading Towards 1789.9

The euro appreciated vis-à-vis the U.S. dollar today as the single currency tested offers around the US$ 1.3660 level and was supported around the $1.3540 level. Technically, today’s intraday low was just below the 23.6% retracement of the $1.3244 – 1.3641 range. North American dealers lifted the common currency higher as an increasing amount of traders seem to be adopting the view that the European debt crisis will be resolved, albeit with financial pain, and not result in a fracture of the eurozone. Yields on ten-year Portuguese debt receded to their lowest level all month last week and countries like Spain have held debt auctions where demand has been increasing, indications that investors in eurozone assets are not shunning the common currency. Traders expect the European Financial Stability Facility will be enlarged from its current €440 billion scope, especially after German Chancellor Merkel said her government “supports whatever is needed to support the euro, also with respect to the rescue fund.” German Finance Minister Schaeuble reported a “comprehensive package” to bolster the rescue facility will be compiled by March. European Central Bank member Stark again reiterated the euro “will not fail.” Three-month eurodollar risk reversals, a measure of demand for options to sell the euro, have recently declined at the fastest pace in about five months – an indication that fewer traders are willing to put on short euro positions

Brutal Home Foreclosure Laws Aid Spanish Banks
Reply   
For many Spaniards, no longer able to pay their mortgages,
the fine print in the deals they agreed to years ago is catching up with them. Not only are Spanish mortgage holders personally liable for the full amount of the loan, but throw in penalty interest charges and tens of thousands of dollars in court fees, and people can end up, like Mr. Marbán, facing a mountain of debt. Bankruptcy is not the answer, either.
Mortgage debt is specifically excluded here.
“Effectively, you can never get rid of this debt,”
“Other countries in the European Union also have personal debt mortgages, but you can go to the courts and get relief.
Not in Spain.”
Several opposition parties in Parliament have been pressing for amendments to the country’s foreclosure laws,
including letting mortgage defaulters settle their debts with the bank by turning over the property. But the center-right government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero has opposed such a major change in lending practices.
Under the law, the banks have the right to collect a percentage of a debtor’s income if it is above $835 a month.

In Spain, Homes Are Taken but Debt Stays
MADRID — Manolo Marbán, 59, is still living in his house in Toledo and going to work in the small pink-and-aqua pet grooming shop he bought here in 2006, when he got swept up in Spain’s giddy real estate boom.
But Mr. Marbán does not own either anymore. The bank foreclosed on both properties last April, and he is waiting for the courts to issue the eviction notices. For many Americans facing foreclosure, that would be the end of it. But for Mr. Marbán and thousands of others here, it is just the beginning of their troubles. When the gavel falls on his case, he will still owe the bank more than $140,000. “I will be working for the bank for the rest of my life,” Mr. Marbán said recently, tears welling in his eyes. “I will never own anything — not even a car.”

Former PBOC Adviser: China Shouldn't Buy Eurozone Bonds Until Eurozone Has Crisis Resolution Mechani
Reply   
China shouldn't buy eurozone bonds until the region works out a permanent crisis resolution mechanism, to avoid the risk of "turning good money bad," a former adviser to the central bank said in an article published in a state-controlled newspaper Tuesday.

"As for the eurozone, while voicing its strong support, China must urgently seek clarification on whether its current holdings of periphery debt will be part of any restructuring plan," Yu Yongding, a senior researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, a major government think tank, said in the article published in China Daily.

RBA Unlikely To Hike In 2011 - BNP

The RBA is unlikely to tighten in 2011 and 4Q inflation numbers illustrate exactly why they won't need to, says BNP Paribas Economist Dominic Bryant. "The RBA can sit tight for quite some time." The house says year-on-year core increase of 2.3% is lowest since 2000. "There's a lack of underlying price pressures present."

Sarkozy takes aim at speculators
Reply   
French president Nicolas Sarkozy has warned that the world risks an escalation in food riots and weaker growth unless measures are introduced to curb speculation in commodity markets.

We want regulation of primary commodity financial markets,” Sarkozy said in a speech in Paris overnight. “How can you explain that we regulate money markets and not commodities?”

Without action, he warned “we run the risk of food riots in the poorest countries and a very unfavourable effect on global economic growth”.
Sarkozy, who has recently taken stewardship of the G20, believes that curbing speculative activity in commodity markets will take some of the heat out of surging commodity prices.

Australian Dollar Falls Against Yen After Aussie CPI Data

Conditions in the Australian residential property sector are expected to weaken considerably over the next 12 months as interest rates rise and credit availability stays tight, according to a survey issued Tuesday by one of the country's big four banks.

National Australia Bank Ltd.'s Residential Property Index fell to 27 points in the December survey, down from 44 points in the previous quarter, the bank said.

National house price expectations have now turned negative, with falls of 0.5% over the next 12 months likely, it said. The picture is a far cry from that of recent years when house prices growth frequently reached double figures, proving a headache for the Reserve Bank of Australia.

Spain tempts fate with minimalist bank rescue
Spain has set in motion a partial nationalisation of its crippled savings banks, or cajas, but stopped short of the giant rescue deemed necessary by some experts to contain the country’s festering crisis. RBS said Spain remains caught in a vice of tightening fiscal policy and a deepening property slump that may culminate in a 40pc fall in house prices, eroding the solvency of the cajas. “This is unlikely to be a game-changer, and could potentially unwind the relief rally we have seen in the markets,” said Silvio Peruzzo, RBS’s Europe economist. Guido Westerwelle, the FDP leader, has sounded euro sceptic over recent weeks, accusing EU officials of trying to bounce Germany into signing a blank cheque for a “Transferunion”, arguably in breach of both German and EU treaty law.“It bothers me that some in Europe seem to think nothing has happened in this financial crisis, and think they can solve the problem by taking on fresh debt,” he said, invoking the name of Ludwig Erhard, the free-market apostle who created the foundations of the post-war German miracle.

To wit, from the lawsuit: "In carrying out its review of the approximately 19,000 Countrywide loan files, MBIA found that 91% of the defaulted or delinquent loans in those securitizations contained material deviations from Countrywide’s underwriting guidelines. ..............................The plaintiff counsel is Bernstein Litowitz, which was made famous from the WorldCom litigation. We doubt they will settle for a few measily pennies on the dollar.

Australian Consumer Price Index
IMPACT= HIGH


The CPI is an index designed to measure the change in price of a fixed market basket of goods and services. The market basket of goods and services is representative of the purchases of a typical consumer. Most countries have an alternate measure of inflation where they exclude volatile items, such as food and energy, to arrive at a measure of underlying inflation. Colloquially, this is usually referred to as “core” inflation. Core inflation can be a useful analytical tool.

Many Central banks explicitly target inflation levels. An acceleration or deceleration of inflation may signal that a change in monetary policy might be appropriate.
