UK Interest Rates could rise to 5.75% in 2007 / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Nadeem_Walayat

With this Thursdays BoE decision of a rise in interest rates to 5% a near certainty. There are clear signs that rates could carry on rising to much higher levels during 2007, due to rising inflation, fed by strong growth in the UK's Money Supply. The projection of 5.75% was first forecast by the Market Oracle in November 2005, with subsquent economic data confirming the trend in higher interest rates. Inflation as measured by CPI is currently running at 2.4% with RPI at 3.6%, well above the old cap of 3%, with little signs of abating despite the rate rises todate.

The spread between the base rate (4.75%) and RPI (3.6%), is currently at 1.3%, marginally higher than the low set in 2003 of 1.1%, which preceded a rise in interest rates from 3.5% to 4.75%. This took the spread to 2%, since that time, RPI has risen and interest rates have fallen to 4.5%. This puts the UK under similar interest rate hike pressures as during the start of the rate hikes back in 2003 and targets an interest rate rise to 5.75%.

UK Inflation rises to a 8 year high of 3.6% (RPI), whilst CPI dips to 2.4% / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Sarah_Jones

UK Inflation rose strongly taking the more recognised and reflected rate of price inflation in the UK economy, RPI from 3.4% to 3.6%, despite the recent fall in crude oil prices. The goverments preferred measure dropped as expected from 2.5% to 2.4% as the price of petrol fell by 6.4 pence per litre.

The rise in RPI is further confirmation that a rate rise in November is virtually a done deal, as the decline in the CPI is temporary given the gap now developing between RPI and CPI measures of inflation.

Federal Reserve holds interest rates / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Sarah_Jones

The U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday held its benchmark interest rate steady for a second straight meeting, saying that while inflation risks remain, they should abate as economic growth slows. The Federal Open Market Committee's decision to hold the overnight federal funds rate target at 5.25 percent -- the level hit in June after 17 straight increases -- was widely expected. But it was not unanimous. Read full article... Read full article...

Interest rates likely to rise to 5% in November 06 / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Sarah_Jones

A further rise in interest rates in November 06, looks highly likely after the Bank of England again raised fears over rising inflation. Minutes from this month's meeting of the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) showed that all eight members voted to keep the cost of borrowing on hold at 4.75%. But it also showed that the MPC thought it was right to impose the shock rise from 4.5% in August as inflation was set to stay above its 2% target "for some time". Inflation hit 2.5% in August 06, - its joint-highest level since Labour came to power and the fourth month in a row it was above 2%.

Retail Sales Surge ensures another rate rise this year / Interest-Rates / UK Economy

By: Sarah_Jones

High Street spending rose strongly in August, to 4.3% despite the August rate rise, which strongly increases the likelihood of another rate rise this year.

There are also signs that the china factor is coming to an end i.e. the price deflation that the high street has enjoyed for several years. Interest rates will now likely rise in November 2006 as the pressures on inflation remain in an economy running near full capacity.

Interest rate trend uptrend accelerates ! / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The interest rate hike by the BOE last month has accelerated the interest rate trend, pushing the 3month rate to over 4.95% ! The trend is likely to continue upwards into the next interest rate rise, probably in October or November 2006, though unlikely to occur in December due to the holiday period.

Surprise rise in UK Interest Rates to 4.75% / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Phillipa_Green

An unexpected quarter point rise in interest rates from 4.5pc to 4.75pc rattled the stock market with retailers, exporters and builders bearing the brunt of investors' concerns.

The rise caught the financial markets off guard leading to a surge in interest rate futures to take into account the 0.25% rise.The FTSE 100 fell by by 93.7 points, or 1.6pc, to 5838.4, while the pound jumped a cent to $1.8885.

The rise is likely to impact the highly leveredged housing sector and lead to a slowdown in the coming months. And future rises are not out of the question, as the BOE tries to reign in inflation as it moves well beyond the Inflation target of 2%.

Interest Rates Correction is Over / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It is 4 months since our last analysis that suggested that the interest rate trend is likely to resume upwards, in that time interest rates have moved sideways, but now with the 3 month LIBOR rate rallying to above 4.7% that sideways trend is coming to an end and signaling a resumption of the uptrend towards our target of 5.75% ! Which would roughly equate to a base rate of at least 5.25% !, The time line for this now has to be moved forward by some 4 months and is now pointing to some time in early 2007.
