    Hi,

    Hoping someone can help me. I'm looking for somewhere online I can get the daily interest rate on 10 Year Treasury Bonds (Aussie Govt. bonds). Been looking around at a few of the usual suspects, but can't find what I'm looking for.

    Can anyone help me out here? Thanks in advance.

    Mark

    Thanks for the link, never really knew it was there...

    Just had a quick look and with the news papers saying that the banks are in a better position at the moment due to a decrease in cost of funding the past few weeks. This is even highlighted by the difference in between the 5 year and 10 year treasury bond. On Jan 3 there was a 29 basis point difference, which yesterday was 2 basis points (and has been as low as -9 in the past 2 weeks. However it must be said its the 5 year bond coming back not the 10 year going up.....

    Thanks Insight - and I had a look around the RBA site as well. I think I need to go and buy some new eyeballs.

    I'm watching the 90 day BB's and the spread to the cash rate, the RBA seem to be close trackers of that and in the last few weeks it has been heading down, which indicates to me that rates will be on hold in April and wait and see what happens in May.

    Hi guys,

    Market commentary from AXA, Advance and a few others are suggesting that rates are going to be dropping at the end of the year.

    In early March I heard that there was a 30% chance of an increase in May, I haven't heard any news since then apart from alot of economists thinking rates are going to be dropping towards the end of the year.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    That makes me nervous :)

    The trend is still up, if the 90 days keep going up then so will rates, I have my finger on the fix trigger.

    I would welcome a recession at the moment.

    That was a good wish...:)
    Now can you make interest rates drop by 2%?

    Cheers

    Hi Insight,

    Our crystal ball gazing paid off ;)

    There may be one more rate decrease this year and apparently three next year and potentially two in 2010 (though 2010 starts to be guestimating...)

    Cheers,

    Dan
