    At least in the short term this provides the RBA with some comfort that the strong housing market isn t yet contributing to an imbalance that could destabilise the economy over the medium term However this may not remain the case if demand for credit picks up in a meaningful way particularly as the positive investment outlook and the high level of business confidence are likely to lead to continued gains in employment Moreover both auction clearance rates and consumer confidence is still at high levels The risk is that as the recovery continues credit growth accelerates and the RBA is forced to raise rates in order to slow it down Business credit fell by 0 1 in the month after a similar decline in January The large falls in business credit appear to have passed but firms are still reluctant to leverage up again Over the past 12 months business credit has declined by 7 6 Anecdotes suggest that small business is still finding it reasonably difficult to access credit and this probably continues to weigh on the data Moreover small business usually lags large business as the business cycle turns up so it s not unusual that small business credit growth is weak at this stage Personal credit rose by 0 4 in February and 1 4 over the past 12 months The large declines seen in 2008 and 2009 have passed as the equity market has rallied A large part of the weakness in personal credit over this period was due to large falls in margin lending However the reasonably sluggish pace of growth suggests that households are unwilling to leverage up to spend on discretionary personal items and investment in the stock market at this point in time The number of residential building approvals fell a surprising 3 3 in February after dropping 7 0 in January Market expectations were for residential building approvals to increase 2 1 for the month in February Feb Jan Feb MoM MoM YoY Building approvals 3 3 7 0 34 2 February building approvals data saw a fall in both private sector detached house building approvals 0 9 and other dwellings apartments units etc decreased 10 9 In value terms building approvals fell 4 5 in February with all of the fall ocurring in non residential building activity 13 0 reflecting the current weakness in this sector and in business investment growth more generally For residential buidlings however the value of new residential building approvals increased only 0 5 while the value of alterations and additions rose 6 2 This result indicates the residential building sector is continuing to feel the effect of last year s rate rises and the lagging influence of the withdrawal of stimulatory policies With the outlook for solid economic growth and continued population growth moving further into 2010 we expect continued tightness in the housing market supporting house price growth However continued monetary policy tightening and supply pressures are expected to see building activity remain
