    Banks are supplying cash again, six months after they stopped.
    Time to buy as the prices will be going up again

    By which source can you verify this information ... because .... I was recently declined by Samba Bank in Dubai for a credit card .. the reason only being the credit crunch .
    The bank employee said confidently these tough times are to last for a long time ....... I'm sure there are many more similar tales from others .

    Guys, banks are lending but for a limited segments of customers, Yes there is lending but it's very cautious and only for a certain segments who are not much affected with the current downturn, However Banks cant survive forever without lending, currently banks are in the phase of raising fund for fear of liquidity shortage as they provide 7.5% on average for deposited, once the liability portfolio of banks balance the existing asset profile, then banks will defiantly start lending again and heaveaily, Just one bank will announce re lending and you will find the rest following like sheep as no bank want to lose market share.

    By the way i'm a 10 year solid banker.

    credit is the problem that us into this situation in the first place. Too much leverage relying on ever increasing unsustainable consumption. Let's face it, we're not going back.

    The future belongs to cash buyers.
