  • "Recent" is of course all recent stories sorted by the time they were added, the last items added are shown first.
  • "Upcoming" are stories that will be added to "Recent" after a short time period. (Currently 30 minutes)
  • If you see a page take a while to load, that means we're updating the database with fresh stories. You don't have to wait, you can just browse on.
  • This site doesn't rely on user contributions for its stories, like DIGG etc. All stories here are fetched automatically from RSS feeds.
  • By the way this site is mostly about "Music News", but I guess you already figured that out. There's a few non music things but not too many.
  • In order to keep the database somewhat under control all older stories will be deleted once a week, probably all stories older than one or two weeks or so, maybe a month, we'll see. Nobody cares about yesterday's news anyway I reckon.

Confused by what Janet Yellen said? As it turns out, so is everyone else, where the prevailing sentiment across the sell-side analysts was that Yellen was not dovish enough.

submitted by mephisto 4 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
Bye bye NIM...The spread between 30Y and 5Y Treasury yields has collapsed to 151bps, its lowest since January 2009. It seems expectations for the exuberance of the business cycle expansion are a little underwhelming. This is half the Treasury curves peak steepness (hope) seen at the end of 2010...  On the day 30Y yields are down 2bps and 5Y is up 2.5bps... Chart: Bloomberg

In a nearly carbon-copy replica of last Friday when tensions escalated then de-escalated on rumors that Ukraine had attacked a Russian military convoy, today's Yellen speech has been completely upstaged by ongoing developments out of Ukraine, where Kiev condemned the entry of Russian humanitarian convoy trucks (subsequently adding it no longer knows where they are), following Russia's announcement

submitted by mephisto 4 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
