The indicator signals a change in the lending activity in the housing market and is therefore an anticipatory indicator of some indicators in the construction and real estate sectors, as well as indexes of consumer confidence and optimism. The reaction of the Australian dollar on the release of the Home Loans indicator is moderate.
