The Official Money Fee was left on maintain at its document, 1.50% low again then. This shocked nobody given inflation’s enduring weak spot. It additionally meant that 1.50% tenure because the longest unchanged rate of interest in Australian historical past stretched right into a 28th month. It’ll most likely stretch so much longer too. Fee futures markets don’t value in any change for all of subsequent yr.
Nevertheless, they’re now beginning to look a bit extra satisfied a couple of rise by the beginning of 2020, and that is the important thing level.
Buyers do nonetheless appear moderately sure that, when the following transfer comes, will probably be a rise, and that suspicion provides AUD/USD some assist.

They’re particularly not so when the US Federal Reserve is already a great distance down the rate-hiking path and decided to go nonetheless additional if it will probably.
However the conviction that the RBA is not going to utterly miss the mountaineering cycle endures. And that’s one thing.
