RBA drops rates to a record low!

3 Feb 2015 5:48 PM - Ian Robinson comments on RBA breaking news

RBA drop rates to a Record Low!

 

Good News!

The RBA has embedded a historical reduction in the cash rate from 2.5% to 2.25% today.  The announcement has caught the market out of step with the AUD falling from US78.10 to below US76.70 within moments of the announcement.

Global economic forces have provided the pathway to succumb to this announcement with a dozen central banks around the globe cutting their rates since New Year which has placed concerns around the capacity of our AUD to fall further. 

Deflationary pressures from falling commodity prices have created “an income recession” destroying federal revenue and playing havoc with our budget (deficit) in parallel to domestic demand growth being sluggish.   

Keep an eye on the yield curve.  Australian 10 year bonds yields are now trading below the previous cash rate of 2.5% and have fallen 1.55% over the past 12 months.  The trend is bullish and intact.

Also keep an eye on short term money market sentiment (30 – 180 day BBSY).  How quickly will the market build in the next 25 basis point drop in the cash rate?

This is good news for borrowers….
