Investment News – The Council of Mortgage Lenders and the Financial Service Authority

Investment News – CML and FSA

We had a play in the new studio this week and you’ll notice I’ve been magically dropped onto the news articles, scary!! Let me know if this has increased your viewing pleasure.

We continue with Movember, second week running and with a new member, Sophia, our first Mo Sista. Check out how the boys and girl are doing in the video you should hear some of the growing pains!

On with the more important stuff – Bank of England predicts inflation will be below its 2 per cent target by 2012. Also confirming the economy is well and truly on the road to recovery and with no double dip in sight. What will this mean in terms of interest rates and the economy as a whole?

Find out why the CML( Council of Mortgage Lenders) and FSA ( Financial Service Authority ) aren’t meeting eye to eye? We’ll take a close look at some of CML’s thoughts on the mortgage market and work out if they make any sense.

Finally, we see house prices rise for the sixth successive month. Is this realistic or just another artificial price increase? And why Savills is bursting our bubbles by telling us their price fall predictions for 2010.
