There is no 'normal' interest rate on sovereign debt. The initial rates are set at the sovereign debt auctions. Investors offer to buy a debt issue or a proportion of the issue at a certain interest rate. The offer is greatly influenced by the investors' own perception of the debt issuer (country) ability to repay its debt + demand for the issue + country sovereign debt rating.

You are charged an annual intrest rate for example 18%. Intrest is calculated by the day. For example if you want to know how much a company is charging you per day for a balance all that you need to do is take the intrest rate that is being charged divide that by 365 ( days in a year) and then multiply that by the amount of your balance. For example your balance is $1000.00 your intrest rate is 18% 18%/365=0.0004931 0.0004931 x 1000.00=$.049 in this example you are being charged $.49 per day wich would equal about $180.00 per year for a $1000.00 balance. But keep in mind that the credit card companies are going to chare you intrest on the intrest that accrues so you would end up paying more than the $180.00 per year

Interest Rates

Real interest rates influence the level of household consumption in a country. Consumption of durable goods is interest sensitive, since households will sometimes finance the purchase of "big ticket items" such as automobiles, household appliances, computers, televisions, and other goods through borrowing. Households will respond to higher real interest rates by decreasing their consumption of these non-essential items since it becomes more costly to borrow when interest rates rise.

Real interest rates are determined by taking the nominal interest rate, which is the actual percentage charged by banks for a loan, and subtracting the rate of inflation. For instance, a nominal interest rate of 5% in a situation where unanticipated inflation is 2% equates to a real interest rate of 3%. Households consider the real rate of interest when deciding to purchase durable goods requiring financing.

If inflation is anticipated, banks will charge higher nominal interest rates to borrowers and therefore anticipated inflation has little or no effect on the real interest rate and consumption. Nominal interest rates rise with anticipated inflation as banks must charge higher rates to maintain their profits, since inflation erodes the value of money and a borrower would be paying back money worth less than the money he borrowed if nominal rates were not increased. However, if there is unanticipated inflation, or inflation greater than the rate anticipated by banks and incorporated into the rate charged to borrowers, then this will reduce the real interest rate and induce households to spend on durable goods, since the opportunity cost of holding money (the inflation rate) increases while the opportunity cost of spending money (the nominal interest rate) remains the same.

During periods of unanticipated inflation, the real interest rate falls and households are more likely to consume more at every level of disposable income. If there is unanticipated deflation (a decrease in the price level), then the real interest rate rises, and since households would now have to pay back their lending banks with money worth more than that borrowed, the incentive is to save more and decrease consumption. A rise in real interest rates caused by a decrease in the price level results in less consumption at each level of disposable income.

Interest Rates

Interest rates are generally applied to cover the collateral risk of defaulting loans. A borrower is compensating the lender for the length of time that money is held - money that the lender could have invested elsewhere.An analogy is that I borrow you a pen. Then when I ask you to return it, I request that you give back 10 additional pens in compensation because I could have used that pen to write a novel.

AdvantagesThe main advantages of interest rates are the profits to the lender from loaning money. This encourages the flow of credit.

During periods of high inflation, interest rates are applied to curb the price of goods and services.

Another advantage is the return rewarded to those who invest money into savings. As savings are relatively risk free in comparison to other investments, during periods of high interest rates the level of yield can be favourable only if the savings are of a large amount.

DisadvantagesUltimately interest rates are favoured significantly unfairly towards the profit of banks and lenders and grossly disadvantage the borrower.

Interest rates contributed to the current recession due to banks irresponsibly distributing high-risk loans on

under the premise of returns from interest.On a wider scale, it could be suggested that it is the general society - the smaller/medium sized businesses, the lower/middle income earners and the ordinary folk who are most greatly disadvantaged as they are repaying an ever an increasing amount of debt.

FHA mortgage interest rate depends on many factors. There is no set rate. Banks send lenders and mortgage companies a rate sheet daily, which tells them how much they will pay for each rate. You can look at a rate sheet and see where the bank wants the rate to be by how much they will pay the originator. The point where the bank doesn't pay anything to the originator, is where the rate is too low for the bank. The rate can be bought up or down by the borrower paying points (a percentage of the total loan amount) to the originator, but those points are added to the formula show you what the effective or actual rate of your mortgage is. For example, if you get a loan at 5% apr for 30 years, but you pay 3 points or percentage points at origination, your actual rate is no longer 5% apr. You have to take into account all the funds you pay to the bank, the originator, the appraiser, the credit bureau etc. during the life of the loan (from application through pay off). In Florida, by law you will get a document at closing that shows you exactly what your effective rate is. Before closing, your originator should explain this to you and they must disclose any fees they will receive from the bank. The best advice is to deal with honest mortgage originators, do your homework and make sure that they are reputable and check with the State to make sure they have a clean history.
