The RBA Leaves the Official Cash Rate on Hold at 1.5%

With the new year underway, we’ve come to the first rate news for 2017. I’d like to share the latest rate announcement and the thoughts on why the Reserve Bank of Australia has made this decision.

As widely predicted the RBA has kept rates on hold at 1.5% as it continues to look for the balance between containing house price growth and managing below target inflation levels, record low wages growth and slow economic growth.

Even though the official cash rate has remained unchanged, lenders can move their rates independently, so you may see a change to your rate.
