The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has reduced the official cash rate to a historic low of 0.10%.
At today’s meeting, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has announced that the official cash rate will be reduced by 0.15% to a historic low of 0.10%. This is to further support the economy as it recovers from the COVID-19 impacts.
The coronavirus crisis continues to present challenges to the recovery of the Australian economy.
It was widely tipped that the RBA board would decide to apply further monetary easing. The CPI for the September quarter is expected to show inflation below target yet again. Given the likelihood that inflation and the labor market will not meet RBA targets for some time the additional official rate cut was not unexpected.
