RBA’s cash rate for October unchanged at 0.25%
The Reserve Bank of Australia has today kept the cash rate at 0.25% for the 7th straight meeting in a row.
The RBA was widely predicted to reduce the rate further in October or November, although with the Federal Budget due today, the majority favoured a Melbourne Cup rate cut in November.
It has previously stated that it sees a cash rate of .25% as a floor but may need to consider the merits of a further reduction against other stimulus options, if signs of a recovery fail to emerge.
