Don't bother with historical interest rates as an indication of future intent. Focus your attention on the central banks for direction. They will not only provide subtle clues as to their intentions to raise, drop , or be neutral. They will also state exactly what they are looking at to determine their next course of action. Read their statements and follow speeches.Very helpful post!
It's prompted a few thoughts, cheers
It's great to hear you thoroughly enjoy it. That's certainly one of the keys to longevity! Good luck with the journey!
I have been trying to understand the cycles of economies and once I have that understanding, I can then identify the stage of that cycle that they are in. I have already compiled a list of the interest rates of each of the currencies I trade and what they were previously. This should be giving me an indication as to the direction or intent. I have also identified the highest and lowest rates in history for this currencies but I've not yet began to look into why some were exceptionally high and why some have a strong history of keeping theirs negative. Once i've done this i'll move on and do the same with other key aspects, such as GDP, inflation, etc..
I've definitely dug in for the long haul
