    To know about the state of the market.

    Contracts can get canned at anytime so you need to keep an eye on what is happening.

    I'd suggest always asking for the top of the range. If it's not a big bank doing the hiring maybe they will care but then they can try and negotiate down from there
    I've the same experience in Banking. By the time the hiring manager has actually got a role approved and a budget assigned, there's not much benefit in it for them to save the organisation as a whole some money. You just get the best worker you can do within your range, and that means it's more likely to be at the top end.

    I try to give a range - and add to it my rate depends on location of the client and my expenses....

    always say bit pointless if I can't even get an interview, as ultimately the rate negotiation is with you and the agent, the total day rate has already been agreed between the client and the agency.....
