    OSFI is doubling the required stress test with a huge and perfectly impossible decline in prices. Prior to 1991-1992 that saw real estate prices drop by 25%, the average real estate drop in a recession was only 15%.

    Try as they may but the experts trying to predict a disaster just can't understand why consumer confidence remains so high. The only thing that will affect consumer confidence is a huge rate spike.

    Stress tests ABOVE 15% are just not realistic, and in such a scenario the interest rates would need to jump over 2%, imo. Again, not since 1990 have we seen such a rate movement of 2% in a 3 to 6 month period.
