Figures from Rightmove show that average asking prices across the UK dropped by 1.1 per cent to £229,767 compared with the previous month.Prices have now fallen back by a total 3.4 per cent in the last three months, half way towards wiping out gains made in the first six months of the year. Asking prices are up by just 2.6 per cent over the past 12 months, a decline in real terms.In London, the average asking price fell by 1.5 per cent to £390,768 this month. Prices are up just 2.1 per cent over the past year, a cut after adjusting for consumer price inflation.The data comes after bleak figures which showed that retail sales unexpectedly dropped 0.5 per cent in August – triggering fears that high inflation, weak earnings growth, austerity measures and a looming VAT hike were threatening to derail a consumer recovery. Most economists believe that economic growth will be weaker – albeit still positive – in the third and fourth quarter of 2010.The biggest London fall was in Hammersmith and Fulham, where prices dived by 8.3 per cent, while Tower Hamlets performed best, with a rise of three per cent.Rightmove director Miles Shipside said: “The ‘double-dippers’ will be able to point to a clear downward trend, with new sellers dropping their asking prices for three months on the bounce. They can cite tough competition amongst sellers and agents struggling to find buyers for their record levels of unsold stock.”But he emphasised that the data was not exclusively negative and that the figures could be a blip, with a recovery ahead. Shipside said: “Those seeing this as a short term autumn blip rather than the onset of a serious double-dip, will point out tentative signs of a reduction in new property coming to the market. “This has resulted in average unsold stock per agent stabilising after six consecutive monthly rises.”The lack of new housing stock – the lowest since April at 26,087 a week – is likely to increase competition in the run up to Christmas.Rightmove said the reduced number of sellers, in what is traditionally a busy time of year, is probably down to finances and sentiment being at a low ebb. Conversely, interest rates are low enough that home owners at financial breaking point have been able to avoid forced sales.Average UK asking prices DOWN 1.1% to £229,767 in SeptemberAverage UK asking prices DOWN 3.4% in past three monthsLondon asking prices DOWN 1.5% to £390,768 in September Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The purchasing managers’ index survey came on the heels of data last week indicating the manufacturing sector was also back in recession.“It’s important to anchoring fiscal expectations that the government comes up with a credible plan to bring the deficit below three per cent of GDP by 2014, and in that context additional measures are to be expected,” said Dietmar Hornung, Moody’s lead sovereign analyst for Ireland.•Meanwhile, Allied Irish Banks (AIB) said yesterday it will sell a 22 per cent stake, currently valued at around $2.2bn, in New York regional lender M&T Bank Corp in a public offering.The Irish government will take a majority stake in AIB next month to help it fill a capital hole of €10.4bn caused by the bank’s fatal courtship of property developers during the go-go years of the “Celtic Tiger” economy. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Tags: NULL whatsapplast_img read more

IMF warns of risk of cutting

first_img whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp THE government would have to revisit its plans for deep spending cuts if growth substantially disappoints, the International Monetary Fund warned yesterday. Speaking at the launch of the agency’s World Economic Outlook report, which cut the UK’s projected rate of growth from 2.1 per cent to two per cent, the fund’s chief economist Olivier Blanchard said the UK’s plans would have a negative impact on growth.The comments contradict the IMF’s recent report praising the government’s plans to slash spending, and Blanchard said the warning on cutting too much, too fast applied to all advanced economics, not just the UK.The IMF reduced its forecast for world growth next year from 4.3 per cent to 4.2 per cent and warned that the global recovery could fizzle out. It highlighted the dangers associated with yawning public sector pensions stretching finances to breaking point. The IMF’s report came as the head of the World Bank praised the government’s determination to cut Britain’s huge debt, saying that its actions were “courageous and wise”. Robert Zoellick said that the debts carried by many countries after the economic crisis would potentially sow the seeds of a future crisis.

The deal is expected to be priced on 12 November.

The rules, including new firewalls between analysts and traders, are part of a series of 50 to 60 regulations to implement the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) share of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law. “These standards for ‘back office’ functions will help reduce risks because they require senior management of swap dealers to have in place policies to oversee the risks of their swaps desks,” CFTC chairman Gary Gensler said in a speech yesterday. The rules aim to reduce risk in the $615 trillion over-the-counter market. Tags: NULL Share Show Comments ▼last_img read more
