EVENT ENDED
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is expected to keep interest rates on hold at 1.50%. It has kept the rates unchanged for many months, so there is not much action expected from the interest rate decision this time. The attention will shift to the RBA statement which will be released at the same time as the interest rate decision. But, since rate hikes are widely anticipated to remain unchanged, the price action is expected to be minimal. The RBA turned dovish in their last meeting, so let's see if anything has changed for the better or for the worse in the meantime.  Please follow us for live coverage of this event and the impact it might have on the currency.
