Canada Central Bank holds Interest rates in the first week of March

Posted on

5th March 2014

Canada’s central bank held its target rate for the overnight rate steady at 1.0 percent, as widely expected, and said inflation is still expected to remain “well below” the bank’s target for some time so “the downside risks to inflation remain important,” while the risks from high household debt have not materially changed.
    The Bank of Canada (BOC), which has maintained its rate since September 2010, added that “the timing and direction of the next change to the policy rate will depend on how new information influences this balance of risks.”
    The BOC softened its earlier concern over inflation following an acceleration of inflation in January and December. In its previous statement in January, the central bank said the “downside risks to inflation have grown in importance.”
    Canada’s inflation rate has risen in the last three months, hitting 1.6 percent in January, after it fell to a revised low of 1.0 percent in October that had first triggered the central bank’s concern. But the recent acceleration has eased some of its worry, with BOC Governor Stephen Poloz saying last month that the rise had made the bank feel “a little more comfortable,” a remark that made it clear to most analysts that the central bank was no longer thinking about cutting rates.
    The BOC in January revised its inflation forecast downwards, projecting inflation of 0.9 percent in the first quarter of 2014, down from a previous forecast of 1.2 percent.
    The central bank, which targets inflation of 2.0 percent, also said in its January inflation report that it first expected inflation to return to its target in about two years and said today that inflation is still roughly as it had projected though it admitted that the actual inflation readings were slightly higher.
    “Excess supply in the economy and competition in the retail sector will likely keep inflation well below the 2 percent target this year,” the BOC said.
    The central bank said it still expects underlying economic growth of around 2.5 percent this year with the first quarter likely to be a bit softer despite a slightly stronger than expected result in the fourth quarter of 2013.
   “Exports have been a little stronger than previously thought but continue to underperform,” the BOC said, adding that business investment has yet to pick up while it continues to expect a soft landing in the housing market and a stabilization of households’ debt-to-income ratio.
    Canada’s Gross Domestic Product expanded by an unchanged 0.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 for annual growth of 2.66 percent, the fourth quarter of accelerating growth.
    The BOC also said the global economy was evolving largely as it had expected with growth strengthening this year and 2015. 
    It noted that “tensions in Ukraine have added to geopolitical uncertainty,” but did not make any further comments though it also said that volatility in global financial markets had increased, reflecting the buoyant market conditions in the advanced economies and “increased risk differentiation among emerging markets

Americans Financial Condition survey

More Americans Worse Off Financially Than a Year Ago

Yet most expect to be better off within a year

by Andrew Dugan

WASHINGTON, D.C. – More Americans, 42%, say they are financially worse off now than they were a year ago, reversing the lower levels found over the past two years. Just more than a third of Americans say their financial situation has improved from a year ago.

Change in Personal Financial Situation Over the Past Year -- 2005-2014 Trend

These results come from Gallup’s annual “Mood of the Nation” poll, conducted Jan. 5-8. Gallup has found that Americans’ economic confidence, self-reported consumer spending, and perceptions of job creation improved in 2013. Despite Americans’ more positive views of the overall U.S. economy in 2013, nearly two-thirds believe their personal financial situation deteriorated or was stable over the past year.

Though down from mid-2013, the percentage of Americans saying they are financially better off than a year ago is nearly in line with the historical average (38%), spanning 1976-2014. On the other hand, the share of Americans saying they are financially worse off compared with a year ago is, by historical standards, high — eight percentage points above the average. The record high of 55% occurred in May and September 2008, the year (and, in the latter case, the month) of the global financial meltdown.

Americans' Assessments of Personal Financial Situation

Most Americans Have High Economic Hopes for Year Ahead

While many Americans say the past year was a financial dud, a majority (55%) predict that at this time next year they will be financially better off. Optimism about the future may still be the predominant feeling, but the overall positivity of the nation’s personal financial predictions appears to be easing, compared with the average during the past decade.

Outlook for Personal Financial Situation Over the Next Year -- 2005-2014 Trend

Bottom Line

Despite a sustained, if sluggish, economic recovery that has lasted nearly five years, most Americans report being no better off financially than they were a year ago. Indeed, the share of Americans saying last year put them in a worse financial position is on the higher end of the 1976-2014 trend. Although this would seem to suggest that many Americans begin this year in a state of financial unease, a majority instead believe the next year will be financially uplifting. As previous years show, Americans are typically more positive about their future compared with their assessments of the past, a testament to the enduring sense of optimism many Americans share about their financial future.
