Which of course would mean interest rate rises by the RBA...
Bring it on! Rising commodity prices and rising interest rates is nirvanna for me. My stock is rising while house prices start falling as a result of investors in that sector feeling the pinch of interest rates. When the stock market softens or the housing market shows signs of life, I switch sectors again. Has everyone forgotten how these two are counter-cyclical...
I love the rollercoaster!
Counter cyclical ? That's not right Michael - both the sharemarket and the real estate market have been going up for as long as I remember. Doesn't it always do that (go up) ?
(sorry for the sarcasm)
Actually has anyone graphed ASX vs Sydney median property prices or something like that?
That's a very good point Glebe. I have heard this said repeatedly (and I think the old economic clock suggests it too) but I haven't seen hard data to support it.
Not saying it ain't so...just have to be convinced it's fact rather than educated guesswork or mere belief.
It would be interesting to see this kind of graph, but we may be comparing appples and oranges here!
How reliable this comparison could be?
