RBA keeps rates at 2.50%

At its meeting today, the RBA decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 2.5 per cent.

Currently things are rolling well according to the RBA, in my conversations with people it is widely varied between industries and workplaces. Some businesses are picking up, others are still flatlining.

Most of my clients are saying general wages growth has been non-existent as well. How are your family travelling? Are you feeling positive about the economy?

rba-logo-630x444We have had some positive reports coming out, unemployment has dipped lower, things are not starting to collapse. That said, most small business owners I speak to are still feeling tough times.

Has your business been feeling the pinch?

Recently, I have heard varying opinions on the state of our economy and potential recovery.

Some economists are pointing towards the likelihood that rates will trend higher by the end for the year. What does this mean for your plans?

This is again welcome news for any mortgagee, and less welcome news for my retiree clients with larger fixed income portfolios.

Most home owners are aware (and if you are not, then listen now), that mortgage rates are at epic lows. This has meant a few of my clients have started considering locking in rates. It is a tough call, and I recommend talking with your broker, and considering carefully what a fixed rate means for your cashflow, and what it costs you if rates stay below it for two or three years.

As always, welcome your comments below.

The RBA noted the “below trend” growth for 2013, as have many small business owners I have been talking to over the past year.

They are hoping this low rate helps keep the growth prospects high. We are all looking forward to seeing that materialise.

I would welcome your comments below.
