RATES RATES RATES So what is next??

An unpopular move - so methinks!!

South Africa’s reserve bank kept its interest rate unchanged recently and now comes decision time again, up, down, sideways, who knows, whatever the decision is there were many members of the Monetary Policy Committee who called for a rate cut.  So what's next.

Consumer spending remains low - so a move is needed.

Electricity costs are ready for a spike and....

Electricity price increases are the “single biggest risk to the inflation outlook,” Governor(ess) Jill Marcus of SA Reserve bank said. Eskom Holdings Ltd., the state-owned power utility, has proposed raising prices by 35 percent a year over the next three years. That will probably boost the inflation rate by 0.3 percentage points each year, according to the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Shame on you Eskom.

This is shocking!!!!!!!

So, at least the Rand has strengthened in areas - thats good.  Cosatu and the Unions want to Unionise the SA Reserve Bank and and and Good, Bad, well depends where you are looking from.
Whatever happens, we believe a 0.5% rate drop will stimulate the lending banks to drop their rates, offer a relief for us on the streets so that we can spend not on luxuries but simple basics and remove the 2009 blues for the rest of the year.  We have 2010 World Cup around the corner, a boost now will definitely kick off as the whistle blows!  Go Bafana (2010 World Champs...I may dream)

Interest rates in South Africa - possible insight from Std Bank

Speculation is mounting that another rate cut is in the pipeline. Markets will be critically assessing economic data releases ahead of the next rate decision on 25 March.

Given the generous degree of monetary policy accommodation in the system, our econometric analysis suggests that the data will have to be extraordinarily weak to augment the case for another interest rate cut.

Probabilities of a rate cut are estimated for a range of indicators and their outcomes ahead of the next MPC meeting. We also flag the risk of pipeline price pressures that may arise as a result of the change in the inventory cycle and concomitant availability of credit within a loose policy environment.

The Finance Minister will also address inflation targeting next week. In all likelihood, inflation targeting will remain the status quo.
