All too good to be true? So what can go wrong?

Three dominant variables standout as the determinants of how quickly and how far interest rates increase in NZ in 2017:- Speed of annual inflation increases; NZ currency value; and how far US Treasury Bond yields sell off.

A good forward looking gauge to determine the efficacy of fixing interest rates long term is the forward five year swap rate starting in five years’ time. The current “five year forward, five year swap” interest rate is 4.30%, well above the RBNZ’s neutral rate of 4.00%, thus it appears to me that the horse has already bolted on fixing long term.
