    Do you think rates are going to get lower than that?

    What @Morgs is saying is that choosing to fix your loan or not is basically you trying to decide if you think variable loans will go lower than that and you will miss out or not.

    The other way of thinking about it is running the following hypothetical, would you be more annoyed if a) you fixed your loan then rates dropped again or b) you stuck with variable and then interest rates increased. If you can answer that hypothetical you should have your answer. :)

    The other argument is if you fix at that rate you would be saving $x every month now, and it might require 2 or 3 more RBA cuts (with banks passing on less than half) before you are worse off.

    note that I am not recommending you fix (or not fix)
