Rate Hike Sentiment Wanes Somewhat

Overnight-Index-SwapsCheck out how the yield on one-year overnight index swaps (OIS) has fallen out of bed over the last 11 days: click here for chart

The 1-year OIS trades in a multi-billion marketplace. Traders use it to bet on what the Bank of Canada’s key lending rate will average over the next 12 months.

Just over a week ago, the market was pricing in a “100%” chance of a rate hike by the BoC’s July 19 meeting.


The New Regulations Countdown

Regulations-for-Mortgages-TighteningIn less than seven weeks, 35-year amortizations will disappear on high-ratio insured mortgages. At the same time, the limit on insured refinances will drop to 85% loan-to-value (from 90%).¹

Borrowers have no later than Thursday, March 17 to arrange a signed lender approval under today’s mortgage insurance guidelines.

This affects people that might want:

  • A 35-year amortization to boost their monthly cash flow or augment their purchasing power; or…
  • A 90% LTV refinance to consolidate high-interest debt, pay for renovations or education, buy investments or fund a rental property down payment

The coming deadline will cause thousands of people to hasten their mortgage plans. Thus far, we’ve heard multiple lenders reporting above-normal mortgage volumes. These elevated volumes will likely continue for the next seven weeks, culminating in an especially busy stretch from March 14-17.


TD Adds Payment Flexibility

TD-BankTD polled 1,001 Canadians in December and found that:

  • 83% would like the ability to lower their monthly payments during an unexpected life or work event
  • 75% would like the ability to skip a payment during an unexpected financial shortfall
  • 65% would like the ability to postpone payments during a planned care leave or extended holiday

Other things being equal, it’s interesting these percentages aren’t higher. Payment flexibility can be a big stress reliever when you need it.

With this in mind, TD has announced a set of new payment options. Customers who qualify can now:
