The Australian GDP report released in December 2017 and in March 2018 showed that the Australian economy was slowing down, but the reports released in June and September showed that the economy was reviving once again as growth averaged to around 1% in a quarter. But, the growth slowed to just 0.3% in Q3 of last year and even further to 0.2% in Q4 of 2018. In Q1 we saw a pickup in economic growth to 0.4%, while for Q2 of this year the Australian economy grew again, this time by 0.5%. The GDP report is around two months old so it is not a leading indicator, but it will show the trend of the economy. The GDP expanded by 0.4% in Q3 and it ticked higher to 0.5% in Q4. But, we saw a contraction in Q1 of this year , with the GDP declining by 0.3% in that quarter, while in Q2 the economy shrank by 7.0%. In Q3 it expanded by 3.3%, while in Q4 it expanded by 3.1%. Q1 of 2021 came at 1.8% but we might see a reversal in Q2. Please follow us for live coverage in real-time of the event by experienced analysts.
