AUD/USD 0.7100 level for year end - UOB

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Analysts at UOB Group noted that the RBA, on Tuesday, left the cash rate at a record-low of 2.0%, but indicated that weaker inflation levels may allow the bank to ease policy again if needed.

"We continue to see the cash rate remaining at 2.00% for now, although we acknowledge that low inflation and major banks’ tightening may eventually force the hand of the RBA. At this juncture, we are keeping our AUD/USD forecasts intact, looking for the pair to hover around the 0.710-region into year-end."
