Australia's official cash rate will remain on hold at the record-low level of 0.1 per cent.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s chief executive says he is increasingly concerned with rising house prices and household debt levels.
Officials fronted a parliamentary committee to wrestle with what is driving record property price growth, and what can be done about it.
The central bank reiterated it will not raise the cash rate from its record low of 0.10 per cent until inflation is sustainably between two and three per cent.
The RBA governor has conceded the economy will likely contract in the September quarter, interrupting the strong recovery from last year’s recession.
The Reserve Bank of Australia has held official interest rates at record low levels and kept its quantitative easing program unchanged.
Australia's central bank will likely reverse its decision to taper its bond buying programme if Sydney remains in a coronavirus lockdown, bank economists say.
The Reserve Bank of Australia has been taken to task for its evasiveness in responding to requests for information about board members' property holdings.
There was much excitement last week when the RBA shifted to saying their “central scenario” is that a rise won’t be needed “before 2024″.
