Here’s a list of articles I found interesting overnight, particularly a rare glimpse inside the NY Fed and the buyback operations along with today’s bond auctions and buybacks…
Ed. Note: I must admit that I am trying to test posting from my new tech toy – a Thinkpad (Lenovo) tablet/notebook. After spending hours (way more than I should have) configuring every nook and cranny of this machine running WinXP Tablet Edition, I now have the perfect mobile solution
Without further ado, here’s what caught my eye yesterday along with a quick summary of the day ahead:
- NYT on the NY Fed’s Traders participating in the buyback program
- Gregor Macdonald on Structural Unemployment and Liebig’s Law
- MarkIt Credit Wrap: Confidence and Supply (Jan. 7, 2011)
- Susan Weiner, CFA has an interesting guest post on her blog about financial advisors and client fears by Meir Statman
