Domestic economic data releases made little difference to cash markets over the week. As in the week before, cash markets don’t rate the chance of a rate cut in February as being very likely although the odds increased a little. However, this view changes significantly in the months from March onwards. Prices were implying a 1 in 3 chance of rate cut in March, rising to a 6 in 7 chance of rate by June and by August it is seen as a certainty. Further rate cuts are also viewed as a possibility and by January, 2017 there is a 1 in 3 chance of a second reduction down to 1.50%.

There were no changes in our cash accounts table over the course of the week.
Across all the cash accounts in the Yield Report survey, the average rate remains at 2.46%.
