I've been reading about Trumps push for negative interest rates so I started to research this.
I came across conflicting views all a bit too hard for me to understand. So I thought I'd ask in here in case someone knows the answer.
If by some chance, Australia goes into...
It looks like the days of Rising Interest Rates is truly coming this time, though everything was at rhetoric stage in previous years. Which stocks would be affected, and which sectors are mostly at risk when interest rates do go up, starting from mid-Dec, FOMC Mtg ?
September FOMC Meeting
[full blog here: https://deeplearning666.wordpress.com/2016/09/18/september-fomc-meeting/]
In the lead-up to this month’s FOMC meeting, we take a step back and look at the meeting minutes of July. Comparing the conclusions made in the previous meeting...
When central bank cuts interest rate, shouldn't this be bullish for stock market? This is usually the case for U.S markets when the Fed cuts interest rate. Why did the stock market here perform badly after RBA cut rate today? Why do we interpret this market action?
I was unimpressed with this move on rates, which is on the back of the rate increases for investment loans done by banks only several weeks back.
The Fed reserve rate means nothing it seems, as the banks dont pass on the full rates when there is a drop and now claim increases when there is no...
What does that mean for new investors? Just seems normal cycles will not exist as easily anymore?
Basically the problem of kicking the tin down the street gets worse and worse. Is it greed? Can somebody please explain the situation to me and some of the likely scnearios..?
I'm interested in peoples opinion about the relationship between the (RBA) overnight cash rate and the ASX200 -INDEXASX:XJO. Can you say from a liquidity point of view that the ASX200 goes up when interest rates are reduced ?
Also, I was looking for evidence of INDEXASX:XJO decoupling...
I'm looking at ASX listed Ausatralian Government Bonds (list here) and I noticed something weird.
What's up with the wildly varying interest rates? For example, the GSBG23 has an interest rate of 5.5%, whereas the GSBG24 has only 2.75%. Why would someone buy the GSBG24? Is it a...
Everytime there is discussion of interest rates and the potential for the RBA to reduce it, it is always in the context of how it will affect the borrowers.
But why do they never seem to consider savers? My ING savings account now only pays 4% and Ubank pays 5.5%, which is a huge drop from...
The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures came out last week, and as everyone now knows, the headline rate was a fall of 1.2% in March GDP from December GDP. Much is written and analysed about this figure and the implications it has for our economy. It is interesting to analyse the figures in...
Hi Guys & Girls,
Seem like everyone is pretty down on Margin Lending at the moment, but i have been revolving my one over for the last couple of years (low LVR).
Just wanted to find out if anyone is using fixed margin loans as opposed to the variable margin loans. My Commsec loan only...
G'day people :)
with RBA meeting due next Tuesday,
any takers on what their cash rate decision will be?
IMO, taking into account the recent flood, increase in cash rate is unlikely
but, economists sometimes surprise us :D
Now, I know this might be a little controversial. And before I get into the nuts of it I will say openly that I am not a home owner, and investment property owner or a commercial property owner, although I have run numbers on all of the above.
To the point, I am getting a little tired of...
A number of scenarios:
If the guvna holds this month and strongly indicates that he will lower in coming months where should i move my cash immediatly? financials?
