John Loos comments on the unchanged Repo Rate

SARB leaves Repo Rate unchanged after only 1 x 25 basis point cut in the current cutting cycle. Weak consumer confidence likely to remain, and shift to a more cautious consumer expected to continue says John Loos, Household and Property Sector Strategist.

Examining recent years’ of improvement in both the Household Sector Debt-to-Disposable Income Ratio (decline) as well as the Household Sector Net Savings Rate (rise), it would appear that weak consumer confidence levels in a stagnant economy are encouraging households as a collective towards a more cautious financial approach.
