Interest Rates Predicted To Rise Very Soon

This is more bollox to stop people panicking?

Or am I the only 1 thinking this? Its stupid because when they come out with a realistic figure its going to make people panic even more. Sure I heard 14-17% last night. That would be more realistic.
Their twisted view on what constitutes "inflation" has been discussed on here previously. It's based on a trolley of goods from the supermarket. Not on everyday reality. In fact supermarket pricing can have a dramatic effect on reserve bank policy by distorting reality in either direction.

When the sh!t hits the fan its only the cost of essential items that matter...who gives a toss about electronics if you are hungry. Its just bulls**t figure manipulation to suit the agenda

yep - bigger global economic event that either world war, it’s going to have a big effect that takes decades to recover
Im a cynic, the inflation has been stimulated and frenzied..its the only thing that will pay for the debt levels...being out of europe gives us more freedom to steer the ship. The labour crisis being an example..its aide inflation and potentially reinvigorate the jobs market

inflation has been created by massive QE like we have never seen before globally

plus a global production lag causing this short term blip of very high rates (that will catch up and calm eventually though)

Its also just a catch up from inaction for a couple of months. The whole "lives vs economy"debate over covid has shown to be short sighted

Massive QE has been going on round the world for years now. Inflation seems a bit sudden for that to be the cause. There’s no real reason for lack of global production/shipping…… can one COVID case really cause the complete closure of one of the biggest Chinese ports? Was cement/plaster production really that hampered by COVID as an example?
I’m not so sure it’s all as simple as you make out but if you’re trading, no matter, go with the flow….. just look out for the surprises.
