A surge in interest rates and the worst currency rout since 2008 in developing nations from Russia to Brazil are inflating corporate borrowing costs as $1.5 trillion of obligations come due by the end of 2015.
Companies in the MSCI Emerging-Market Index (EEM) are facing the highest debt loads since 2009 as profit margins narrow to the least in four years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
More than 36 percent of bonds and loans by Turkish companies will mature by 2015, while Chinese firms need to pay off $630 billion, or 29 percent, of their borrowings just as the country experiences its first-ever onshore corporate-bond default.

March 6 (Bloomberg) -- Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s David Woo and Bloomberg’s Alix Steel discuss the storage and price of metals on Bloomberg Television.
2.7 million SPY in the 5 minute interval 11:55---12:00
interesting that there was an almost identical volume at the start of the hour 11:00--11:05
could be a big short that didn't work covered before lunch/weekend.....(since the volumes matched)
this is spring break weekend btw

"Which still means somebody has to take them back at par. Who will that be????????"
the Fed constantly reiterates that they are in charge of CREDIT.
the Fed says the U.S. Government is in charge of DEBT
and many people say "DEBT DOESN'T MATTER"
it's a fine kettle of fish!
the Fed will hold their bonds to maturity and hence par value of 1.0
this makes them believe their strategy is bullet-proof
"What's forgotten about those bubble days is that a large majority of stocks were already in pronounced downtrends. "
what i recall is constantly dumping my momo stocks that started declining.
i was holding a handful of the better momo stocks when the big Fed margin call was announced. ouch even on my trimmed down position.
what i question (and doubt) is whether the Yellin-Bernanke attitude would even have tightened the margin if they had been steering the Fed in 2000. they would want a momo stock bubble with Fed-permitted margin to deflate slowly imo.
"Unfortunately, the crash will be much bigger than it would have been if the Fed simply tapered at double the speed."
There was no QE in 2000.....so tapering alone won't deflate the margin bubble.
Why is no one questioning the Fed about huge margin chasing stocks with wildly disproportionate metrics?
Is everyone obsessed merely with QE/taper?
a question for any economists here.........
what would have happened
if the Fed had not created a large margin call
on nasdaq stocks in 2000?
would the nasdaq at 5,000 have plateaued there
and gradually declined
instead of the abrupt crash?
the Fed controls margin used in buying stock
in 2000 the Fed restricted margin to 0% on a list of nasdaq stocks
what is the rationale today for allowing margin on FB, TSLA....
and similar other stocks with wildly distorted metrics?
"No...they were compelled to do it"
There is no way you could possibly know the decision process that went into deleting p-calypse....
or do you consider yourself omniscient?!
why were they compelled to finally delete p-caplyse completely irrespective of their free will?
