No Fed US Interest rate cut in sight ! / Interest-Rates / Analysis & Strategy

By: Money_and_Markets

That Federal Reserve Board rate cut? The one Wall Street's been forecasting for months? The one that's supposedly right around the corner?

Forget about it!
The latest economic numbers say it ain't happening. The latest moves by foreign central bankers make it unlikely. And as far as I'm concerned, the Fed is pretty much treading water in an ongoing flood of easy money into the asset markets.

Bank of England raises UK interest rates to 5.25%, catching the financial markets off guard / Interest-Rates / Strategic News

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Bank of England raised interest rates by 0.25% to 5.25%, whilst most of the city of London was caught of guard and had already started to consider the next move for a cut in interest rates. If you have been following our forecasts and analysis at the market oracle you will be aware that we are expecting interest rates to rise to 5.50% this year and possibly even as high as 5.75%. Whilst the first anticipated rise in interest rates was Feb. 07, this rise is one month early. Though only one of 50 economists polled by Reuters predicted an increase in interest rates.

US Interest Rates & Bond Market forecast for 2007 / Interest-Rates / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The US Bond market had a volatile year, as the market wrestled with a resurgence in inflation during the first half of the year, and then rallied in the 2nd half on a weakening economy and speculations that US interest rates had or were near their peak.

The Fundamental Economic Picture - The US economy ends 2006, with slowing economic growth, a weak housing market, rising inflation and a declining dollar. The economic picture this paints both call for higher and lower interest rates. Where we need to look at for further clues is to the Fed. What would the Fed do ?, More importantly what has the Fed done in the past. The answer to this is clear - Cut interest rates and print money to ignite economic growth. Thus, even with rising inflation, and a falling dollar, the Federal reserve is likely to focus more on attempting to boost a slowing economy by cutting US interest rates as the danger is clear that another leg lower in the US real estate market on the back of record amounts of mortgage debt could tip the US into recession during 2007. That's the fundamental picture.

UK Interest Rate forecast for 2007 - Bank of England to do battle with inflation / Interest-Rates / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

UK Interest rates end 2006 at 5%, up 0.5% on the years low of 4.5%, as the bank of England strives to bring inflation back under control. Though the bank increasingly seems to be fighting a losing battle against a soaring money supply of over 14% ! stoking the fires of inflation as the RPI hits 3.7% and the CPI 2.7% the highest levels since 1993 !

With the economy near full employment, the inflation figures are set to wage costs soaring feeding into a wage price spiral. which is expected to feed through into even higher inflation during 2007. The middle class already are experiencing inflation closer to 6% than the 2.7% that the CPI represents.

Money is too Important to Trust with Central Bankers ! / Interest-Rates / Analysis & Strategy

By: Gary_Dorsch

The late Nobel Economic laureate Milton Friedman once remarked, “Money is too important to be left to central bankers. You essentially have a group of unelected people who have enormous power to affect the economy. I’ve always been in favor of replacing the Fed with a laptop computer, to calculate the monetary base and expand it annually, through war, peace, feast and famine by, perhaps, a predictable 2 percent,” Friedman said.

Financial chiefs from the Group of 20 industrialized and emerging economies could hardly believe their good fortune, as they huddled behind closed doors on Nov 19th. Central bankers from Great Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States, and 13 emerging economies, including Australia, Brazil, China, India, Russia and South Korea, implemented a joint strategy six months ago to derail the “Commodity Super Cycle”, and they hit pay dirt in the Fall of 2006.

The carry trade could end as Japan looks to raise interest rates on the back of an strengthening economy / Interest-Rates / Analysis & Strategy

By: Phillipa_Green

As Japanese growth numbers for 2006 and 2007 have been revised higher to 2.5%. the Japanese central bank is increasingly looking to raise interest rates further from the current 0.25%, after spending many years at 0% (up from 0% in July 06). Interest rate forecasts suggest that rates could rise to as high as 2.5%, which could spell an end to the 'carry trade'.

UK Interest Rates set to rise to 5.25% by March 2007 / Interest-Rates / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

After the markets digest yesterdays expected rise to 5% (the 2nd rise of 2006). It is highly probable that this is NOT the peak in interest rates, far from it, yesterdays rise confirms that the trend in interest rates is firmly higher, so we ponder when the next rise in interest rates is likely to occur, taking the Base Rate to 5.25%.

The housing market continues to accelerate, with the Halifax reporting yesterday a rise for October of 1.7% ! On top of this consumer price inflation is expected to continue rising from its current rate of 2.4% over the coming months.

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.

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.
