  • RBA TIPPED TO HOLD INTEREST RATES Formula 1 Finance
    be on the cards The Reserve Bank will leave the cash rate untouched at 3 per cent We are starting to see some tentative signs that rate cuts are having an effect and that as a result the RBA board is likely to take a wait and see approach The December quarter capex survey was probably not soft enough to convince the RBA to ease again just yet However the RBA is likely to signal that it retains an easing bias with the benign inflation outlook providing scope to ease if needed My view is that although green shoots are starting to appear in the Australian economy they are still very fragile and to ensure they don t whither the RBA should be cutting rates again I think rates will be on hold in March I expect rates to fall to as low as 2 per cent within the next 12 months Leaving the cash rate somewhere between 2 5 and 2 per cent by year s end Brett Colley 365 Posts Brett has been involved in management in the finance industry for over 13 years Brett s diverse experience in finance real estate developments and all facets of the construction industry confirms Formula 1 Finance to be an innovative professional finance broking firm On March 5 2013 Enconomy Finance News Financial goals House prices Inflation Interest rate Wealth Comments Off Comments are closed Finance News RBA rate announcement Banks Mining Towns and Rental Yields Houses outperform units in capitals Positive return for Qld market Whats happening with Vacant Land Sales Credit conditions restricting construction Housing Values Rise Housing Facts Rates on Hold New home sales at 2 year high Categories Australian Dollar Bank fees Bank Profits Budget Enconomy Finance News Financial goals First Home Buyer Government banking reform Home

  • Feb rate cut unlikely Formula 1 Finance
    9 per cent thought the Bank would cut by as much as half a percentage point It s very likely the RBA will apply the same wait and see approach it demonstrated throughout 2012 at its meeting next week Most economic indicators are within targeted ranges and it appears homeowners aren t convinced the RBA has enough evidence to lower interest rates The December rate cut certainly did help inject some confidence into areas of the economy and help spending and consumption over the holiday period But like most interest rate movements it takes time to assess the full impact as more data becomes available These results could indicate that households do not expect the economy to grow on the heels of RBA rate cuts alone Households have seen four rate cuts in the past year yet housing finance remains flat and sentiment remains quite cautious If the government is looking to promote confidence in the economy it should look to ease concerns about the two speed economy or home building Brett Colley 365 Posts Brett has been involved in management in the finance industry for over 13 years Brett s diverse experience in finance real estate developments and all facets of the construction industry confirms Formula 1 Finance to be an innovative professional finance broking firm On February 1 2013 Budget Enconomy Finance News Financial goals Inflation Interest rate Wealth Comments Off Comments are closed Finance News RBA rate announcement Banks Mining Towns and Rental Yields Houses outperform units in capitals Positive return for Qld market Whats happening with Vacant Land Sales Credit conditions restricting construction Housing Values Rise Housing Facts Rates on Hold New home sales at 2 year high Categories Australian Dollar Bank fees Bank Profits Budget Enconomy Finance News Financial goals First Home Buyer Government banking

    official statement revealed downward revisions to the RBA s local GDP forecasts from 2 50 3 50 per cent to 2 25 3 25 per cent for 2013 Their CPI forecasts were unchanged with the CPI still expected to be in the target band Other things being equal lower than expected growth should motivate further rate cuts But the official statement also suggested a key concern was that wages growth was too high given low recent productivity growth implying upside risk to inflation Subsequently the labour price index published for Q3 showed that wages growth had slowed by more than expected Other indicators also suggested some further loosening in labour market conditions including a key survey of Australian business conditions Last week the board minutes then added a critical nuance suggesting that board members considered that further easing may be appropriate in the period ahead This was more forward guidance than we have seen from the RBA in quite some time This week we received investment data showing strength in mining in Q3 but weakness elsewhere and significant downward revisions to investment intentions for 2012 2013 As such it s another close call but on balance we still expect a 25 basis point cut by the RBA next week Brett Colley 365 Posts Brett has been involved in management in the finance industry for over 13 years Brett s diverse experience in finance real estate developments and all facets of the construction industry confirms Formula 1 Finance to be an innovative professional finance broking firm On December 3 2012 Enconomy Finance News Financial goals House prices Inflation Interest rate Wealth Comments Off Comments are closed Finance News RBA rate announcement Banks Mining Towns and Rental Yields Houses outperform units in capitals Positive return for Qld market Whats happening with Vacant
