Hi Dean,

I don't really like your thread title to be honest; it implies an unfair exasperation with Hubert. Hubert is just responding, late, to market demands. They held out as long as they could. Note that these reductions to 2.00% don't take into account the other 0.75% the BoC has cut, so even without any further 0.75% cut between now and April 15th, it's quite likely we could see all those HISAs currently at 2-2.10% go down to 1.25-1.50%.

In short, I think 1-1.25% is likely to be the new top HISA rate in the next couple months once all the machinations have been completed.

Cheers,
Doug

Hi Doug,

The thread title ("Hubert Rates Going Down Again") is a Statement Of Fact ... this was their Second lowering of rates, in less than a Week.

No 'Unfair' exasperation with Hubert was expressed, or implied.

Ciao,

If you have a Scotia iTRADE brokerage account, the Scotiabank US$ brokerage ISA offerings DYN6001 and DYN5001 are yielding 0.40%.

Hi Eva,

Thanks...I just posted about this, roughly 10 minutes before you posted. I think a separate thread is warranted as we (a) we typically do this and (b) this affects the 1-year GIC rate this time.

You are right Doug. We would need only one topic, something like Hubert's rates where we can post all changes (HISA, GIC, etc.)

Hubert is good. I've had deposits waiting to clear during rate drops and they've honored the higher rate.
