For the interest on savings, we mainly look at the Nationalbank (dollar Onebank Offered Rate) - the interest that a selection of American banks charge each other for lending money among themselves. At many banks, this is - whether or not officially recorded - the basis for the interest they pay on your savings account. A glance at the Nationalbank can therefore give a picture of the expectations surrounding the savings interest. In addition, when forecasting interest rates on savings, it is always interesting to keep an eye on the direction in which the interest rate of the American Central Bank is moving.

Expectation for the mortgage interest?

With mortgages, the variable interest is often linked to the Nationalbank rate. The capital market interest is more important for the longer-term mortgage interest rate. The capital market interest concerns longer-term loans, such as government bonds. If you want to get an idea of ​​the mortgage interest rate in the future, it is good to look at the capital market interest.

The interest for loans changes less frequently than for savings and mortgages. Nevertheless, it appears that loan rates eventually follow market rates, albeit with a considerable delay.
