Recommended Posts

When was the last time UK and US rates were the same? Is it likely that March could be the point where UK rates are lower than th US?

Fed to raise US rates again as Greenspan era ends

What next for UK rates?

Only one way and that's up, up and away IMO.

oh dear!!!!,the IR cut brigade are going to be really upset.

why uk IR's WILL GO UP:

simple really,as soon as US IR's overtake UK IR's,sterling will slide.....causing inflation(curbed by higher IR's in a few months).....or IR's will go up EARLIER to protect the pound,at the expense of growth.

...look at what happened to sterling when US rates fell below.....now reverse it!!!!

So anyone think a £10 punt on interest rates rising in Feb is worth it? 150 - 1 at the moment.. mmm nice £1490 profit....

Personnaly I think they will stay put and rise in March. Increase in Feb will be too much of a shock for the British public.

Falling Sterling....Hmmmm

We were saying this when UK IRs were 4.75% and US were 3.5%.It didn't stop the BoE cutting IRs and sterling stayed where it was.

Don't get hung up on rising IRs guys!

I see what you are saying, but the longer this goes on, the more I believe that rising IRs is the quickest way to bring about a crash.

People are so over-stretched that a few increase may well flood the market with even more properties.

@ abc, I'd avoid betting on a move in February. Last November I had speculated that it would happen in February, but now believe it April is more likely. Nice way to start the new tax year.
