The latest from Moody's on Australia:
- Says delinquencies on Australian home mortgages will rise slightly over 2016 from current low levels "but remain at a low level"
- Owing to below-trend economic growth and a slower pace of house price growth in some cities
- Arrears will be highest in those states whose economies are most dependent on the resources sector
- Expect that Australia's GDP growth will likely be towards the upper end of our 1.5% to 2.5% forecast range for 2016, but this will be below the long-term average of 3.5%
