The Reserve Bank of Australia sounded dovish on their rate statement in the last meeting. They were expected to cut interest rates to 1.25% in May, but they didn't, although they cut rates in June. They did so again in July and this wasn't unexpected. They sounded increasingly dovish and also commented that they will likely follow the FED with the monetary policy.The FED delivered a rate cut in July and another in September, so the RBA should be on that side as well, and that's why it will be interesting to see where they stand now. Let's keep an eye on the statement for rate cut clues. Please follow us for live coverage of this event by experienced market analysts.
