  • Westpac Predict 0.25%pa Rise February and 0.50%pa in 2nd Qtr « Formula 1 Finance Formula 1 Finance
    5 6 drop in November owner occupier finance remains at historically high levels Demand for housing has surged over the last year reflecting the very favourable combination of historically low interest rates government incentives strong population growth and pent up demand for housing stock RBA interest rate rises will act as a headwind for housing finance in coming months However the housing sector is likely to gain a second wind during the second half of 2010 if as we expect the RBA keeps the cash rate steady for some time at around 4 5 Strong population growth and pent up demand will remain supportive Upgraders will be encouraged by a strengthening labour market and Investors are expected to return in greater numbers in response to relatively high rents and rising house prices Dec employment and unemployment The December labour force data surprised on the upside for the fourth consecutive month while a lower than expected unemployment rate has confirmed a lower and earlier peak rate than had been expected With total employment up 35 2k a cumulative 135 7k rise has been seen in four months an annualised growth rate of 3 8 Part time jobs accounted for most of the latest rise but the full time part time split looks to have reverted to its historical saw tooth pattern Full time jobs still posted their fourth consecutive rise for a cumulative 78 3k gain an annualised growth rate of 3 1 The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate peaked in October at only 5 8 falling to 5 5 in December with the trend rate falling since August Aggregate monthly hours worked have trended higher for six months although remain 1 2 below their peak Our composite of business survey employment indices has recovered smartly in recent months to net positive territory currently 50 4 in December but is at a level consistent with smoothed jobs growth averaging only 11k per month well below the current trend While average hours worked are trending higher they remain 2 below their peak indicating spare capacity in the existing workforce that should temper outright hiring Still the rapid turn in surveyed business conditions and our outlook for accelerating domestic demand growth through 2010 implies a pick up in annual trend jobs growth through 2010 to 1 8 yr from 0 76 yr in December We do not expect the recent fall in the unemployment rate to continue at this pace through 2010 with a flatter downtrend in prospect Accelerating working aged population growth and likely higher participation rates is lifting the monthly jobs requirement to hold the unemployment rate steady Still with the peak unemployment rate confirmed the labour market is tightening from a less loose than expected starting position This reinforces our call for a 25bp rate hike in February and a further 50bp in Q2 The headline results showed a 35 2k jump in jobs consensus 10k after a 31 4k rise previously with full time 7 3k vs 31 1k prev
