    UK interest rates to fall further

    Just a heads up, read this on the BBC new site-
    Bank of England expected to cut interest rates to 0.5% from 1%. An announcement is expected at 1200 GMT on Thursday 5th March.

    oi kippy!

    my savings are making pocket money :-(

    i know ... watch out for your silver they turn into coppers
    i need to sort out my finances in march - monthly resolution.
    ISAs, ship my salary and money out of Natwest (leave £10 in the account LOL). the cheeky bankers pretend to 'listen' to our needs and instead of actually sorting a simple problem out (eg raise credit limit), they send you a friggin response form to say if they had been helpful. yeah helpful in chatting but absolutely useless in their job.

    kips.. if you can weather the storm and want long term savings.. oil 5+ years probably treble your money

    oil? or pharmaceutical?
    esp the ones that have NHS contracts ...

    i have savings over the years since i was a student and working part time, not too worried unless i cant work anymore or some disaster.

    What the point of cutting rates if the thievi** arent going to pass it on?

    great news for some

    my mortgage rate will drop to 1.45% if so and long may it continue to fall

    Well my tracker has gone down from nearly £700 to probably under £400 now, so it's not all bad :whistling:

    I am still paying £700 so a couple of years like this will knock years off my mortgage.

    Anyone on a tracker, just pay as much as you can off now, and it wil pay dividends.

    Im with Barclays and on a tracker and they said they automatically leave it they way it is and if I want to change it I have to ring them and ask so I guess I will finish my mortgage earlier

    My saving are earning buttons i be aswell spend the money

    A lot of people will think that, and I guess the gov would love us all to spend spend spend again. BUT DONT! save it for a rainy day. It might be earning you sod all but at least youve still got it.
