    Is the end for the US bull market nearing?

    Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

    Should global banking regulators follow Iceland's mantra?
    The tiny nation of Iceland sent shockwaves around the world when it let its banks fail in 2008. Now, the island is finding its critical decisions made 5 years set important benchmarks for global growth and unemployment goals. In 2008, the government of the US$ 14 bn economy refused to bailout its banks, which subsequently defaulted on US$ 85 bn dues. However, the decision to protect state finances helped the economy recover much faster than anticipated. So much so that its unemployment target is currently an ambitious 2%. Do debt burdened economies like the US and Europe have some important lessons to take home from this? Read on to find out. (Bloomberg)

    What bubble will our era be known for?
    The concept of the formation and bust of asset bubbles is well known. This is a phenomenon that was seen centuries ago as well with the South Sea and Dutch tulip bubbles serving as prime examples. What bubble will our era be known for? It is known that fiat currencies throughout the world are no longer tied to a tangible asset like gold. And the loose monetary policies unleashed by central bankers the world over have led to the value of paper currencies being questioned. When the current asset boom goes bust, will the value of paper money also diminish considerably? Read on to find out. (Zerohedge)

    Is the end for the US bull market nearing?
    The US stock markets have been in a bull market since the year 2009. Currently, the sentiment is very positive about the US economy. There is a sense that the Fed's stimulus has helped the economy get back on track. But what if it's all a mirage? As the author of this insightful article argues, the US markets are in a classic bear market rally. Also the end of this up-move could spell disaster for the US economy. (Safehaven)

    What lies ahead for fixed income markets?
    In this article, the author discusses the factors that impacted fixed income markets in 2013 and shares his views on the likely trend in 2014. Will the trends in the fixed income market governed by global events or more of local factors? More importantly, can one expect a stable rate environment in 2014? Read on to find out... (Morningstar)

    Is another banking crisis brewing?
    The 2008 financial crisis saw big banks collapsing. Excessive leverage and predatory lending practices led to defaults on structured products. This eroded the net worth of banks and brought them on the verge of a default. It seems that another crisis similar to this is brewing in the Chinese banking space. Read on to find out how the crisis originated and what repercussions it could lead to if the central bank does not step in with some bail out measures. (iacknowledge)
