    It's not suprising. Credit spreads are widening and BBSW seems to have structurally shifted up by 0.25% in the past year, which together has led to funds costing 0.60% more than this time last year.

    If the RBA was to cut rates ,I think it would send a pretty strong message that many australian households are in trouble.
    At best bank rates would stay at current levels , but not rise , so it seams a rather pointless exercise.
    I dont think to many investors would pile into property if they knew that at some point interest rates will go up and cause more pain.
    Which would indicate there will be more people selling rather than buying.
    Then you have a small group maybe 5-10% that may be forced to sell over the next 2 years when they are pushed from IO to P&I.
    As more people did into their savings it also means their is more pressure on banks to fight for the smaller pool of depositor funds.
    Or fund it from overseas.
    Its just a vicious circle that leads to banks pushing up their rates ,especially the smaller ones.

    National Australia Bank's digital bank UBank is raising rates on a range of fixed-interest products by 20 basis points, the fourth lender to move in a week.

    ...

    UBank, NAB's consumer banking and wealth online operation, is raising rates on new one-, three- and five-year interest-only mortgages, typically increasing headline rates from 3.99 per cent to 4.19 per cent.
