Forex Flash: RBA minutes should be tilted towards case for easing - Westpac

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The minutes from the RBA Board’s 5 March meeting will be published at 00.30GMT. According to Sean Callow, FX strategist at Westpac: "AUD/USD gained about 30 pips net on the steady hand two weeks ago, where retention of the line “scope to ease policy further” was balanced against a more positive view of the global economy and “some prospect of a modest increase” in investment outside mining."
