09 Oct – 13 Oct 2017

There were no changes to our list of cash account interest rates this week.

It was another week busy with domestic economic data. NAB’s September business survey confirmed Australia’s business  sector was still experiencing decent conditions and there are even tentative signs Australian consumers may be starting to feel the same way.

August house finance approvals figures may make APRA and the RBA a little nervous should property investors continue their demand for finance on through to coming months, although the RBA did its best to allays concerns regarding both borrower and lender resilience in its October Financial Stability Review at the end of the week.

As a result, there was not much change to traders’ views of where the cash rate would go for the rest of 2017 and during 2018. No change is expected in November and February 2018 is still rated as a 1-in-7 chance. May has slipped   a little as a rate rise month and it is now a 42% chance bet while August is seen as a likely candidate at 78% and a rate rise is fully factored in for November.
