Cash rate still unchanged at 1.5% for the 29th consecutive time

RBA Updates
April 2, 2019

The RBA has decided to leave the official cash rate unchanged at 1.5% for the 29th consecutive time and I’d like to share some thoughts on why the Reserve Bank of Australia has made this decision.
With speculation mounting that a date for the federal election is close to being announced and that tonight’s federal budget will bring with it tax cuts, the Reserve Bank has again left rates on hold. Supporting the case are strong employment figures & continued low global interest rates, offsetting continued concerns around falls in housing prices.
