Bottom Line: Commentary

Five-year Government of Canada bond yields finished eight basis points higher for the week, closing at 1.38% on Friday. Once again the Bank of Canada have overestimated the rate of inflation in its forecasts. This has some bond market investors hedging their bets, that our current economic situation may force the Bank of Canada to lower it overnight lending rate.


Spring market mortgage-rate competition between lenders was unaffected by Bank of Canada's overnight rate hold last week. Five-year fixed rates are still widely available at rates below 3.00%. Even the 10 year rate has dropped to 3.69%. Rate wars can only benefit us the consumer.


(Apologies to Federal Finance Minister Flaherty who is trying to convince lenders that five-year fixed-mortgage rates should stay above 3.00%, market forces and bond yields be damned.)
