Key Quotes

“The RBA on balance remains upbeat, referring to a pickup in confidence, credit growth, solid employment growth, and that house prices were still rising. The Board was not rattled by out-of-cycle mortgage rate increases either, saying “While the recent changes to some lending rates for housing will reduce this support slightly, overall conditions are still quite accommodative”. The reference to slowing China was dropped. Given the dovish element was confined to inflation, expect the Bank’s CPI forecasts to be revised down from 2.5%/yr to 2.25%/yr this Friday.”
