For the Lefty AE conga line enjoy! !lol ...........What happened to the proposed doom and gloom of high interest rates? Stable rates we can bank on By MATHEW CHARLES and IAN LOVETT June 9, 2005 HOMEOWNERS can sleep easier after the Reserve Bank's decision to keep interest rates stable provoked forecasts they are unlikely to move north this year. Experts are even suggesting the next change could be downwards, either later this year or early next year. Under that scenario the RBA would drop rates to breathe life into a slowing economy and help combat rising unemployment. While the RBA never explains why it keeps rates unchanged, AMP Capital Investors chief economist Shane Oliver said there was no reason to support a rise. "On all fronts, the case for raising interest rates has dried up," he said. But a raft of tepid economic data had few tipping the RBA would increase rates from the four-year high of 5.5 per cent the bank pushed them to in March.
