The big moves in the cash markets all happened in the previous week and this week changes were minimal. The RBA’s November minutes were released without any surprises and the other local economic data such as the Westpac-Melbourne Institute leading indicator only served to reinforce already-held opinions.

While cash market are factoring in a good chance of a rate cut in 2016, it is still only a 50/50 bet by April 2016 and a 64% chance by October 2016. It’s a reflection of the battle between those who see the sub-trend GDP growth continuing and those who see emergency level interest rates as unnecessarily pessimistic.

There has been one change to our cash accounts table. The RAMS Saver Account rate was reduced by 20bps to 3.40% but it is still the highest rate in the Yield Report survey.

Across all the cash accounts in the Yield Report survey, the average rate is 2.41%.
