1.Stock market:Have you ever heard anyone say that the stock market doesn’t matter to them because they don’t invest? However, if you have any retirement accounts, hold any mutual funds, these are significant! In addition when interest rates are at a low level, as they are currently (many think, in an historic – low manner) There are less options, and locations, to invest, or put one’s funds – in. If bonds or banks pay low interest/ dividend rates (below the inflation rate) which leaves more options and in many instances, creates a higher stock market (in terms of price, etc.).
2.Real estate market:When borrowing costs are low mortgage rates tend to be extremely attractive. Prices for homes rise, and the overall real estate market increases in price. This is contingent on other variables, including supply and demand, stock levels, the overall economy employment and job market conditions, and so forth. We are experiencing a rate of price increases that we have not (if ever) experienced before. But, a large part of the reason is shifting perceptions and priorities after the terrible pandemic. The monthly mortgage payment costs per thousand dollars is less if rates are lower.
3.Credit card use:Credit card issuers, usually, in particular, when interest rates (cost of borrowing) is low, offer attractive rates to use their credit cards. When people, experience, more optimism in the future, they will tend to borrow and use credit cards more!
4.Personal loans:Because it is less expensive, to borrow, when rates are low, many are more willing to take – out, personal loans! They are less attractive when rates rise or normalize.
5.Bonds and interest rates at banks:The typical bank account earned a fixed rate of interest for a long time. The rate was anywhere between 4 and 5 percent for several decades. Then after a short period of time the rates increased because of inflation and other economic variables. Today, rates are lower and in fact quite a bit less than the rise in the cost of living. They will fluctuate over time but it is risky, uncertain and risky to attempt to sell them – time!
Knowing and understanding the importance of rates and their relationship to other components of your life will make you more informed and wise. Are you willing to make efforts to be a better educated and more knowledgeable about the market?
