Australia Keeps It’s Interest Rate Steady At 2%


Regardless of whether the RBA increases, decreases, or maintains the interest rate, the decision of the RBA always has an effect on the Australian Dollar.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  ( PRnob.com Press Release ) 08, July 2015, Australia - As widely expected, the Reserve Bank of Australia made no changes to it’s monetary policy today (7th July 2015) and kept interest rates steady at 2%.

The Statement by Governor Glen Stevens said that leaving the interest rate unchanged was appropriate:

“The Board today judged that leaving the cash rate unchanged was appropriate at this meeting. Information on economic and financial conditions to be received over the period ahead will inform the Board's assessment of the outlook and hence whether the current stance of policy will most effectively foster sustainable growth and inflation consistent with the target” – RBA Statement.

If the RBA is hawkish about the inflationary outlook of the economy and rises the interest rates it is considered bullish for the Australian dollar. Similarly, if the RBA has a dovish view on the Australian economy and keeps the ongoing interest rate, or cuts the interest rate, it is considered bearish.

Regardless of whether the RBA increases, decreases, or maintains the interest rate, the decision of the RBA always has an effect on the Australian Dollar. Increasing the interest rate appreciates the currency and decreasing the interest rate generally has a depreciating effect on the currency.

There are 2 key ways in which forex traders can trade the Australian dollar with the RBA rate decision:

Before the RBA delivers it’s decision:
~ If the RBA decision matches the market’s expectations then forex traders generally do not enter a trade either way.
~ If the RBA cuts interest rates when the market was expecting it to increase or to stay on hold, traders usually sell the Australia dollar.
~ If the RBA increases interest rates when the market was expecting them cut or to stay on hold, traders usually buy the Australian dollar.?
The other way is trading after the RBA has delivered it’s decision:
~ -If the RBA decision matches expectations; traders generally do not enter into a trade.
~ If the RBA cuts interest rates when the market was expecting it to increase or to stay on hold, traders usually sell the Australia dollar.
~ If the RBA increases interest rates when the market was expecting them cut or to stay on hold, trades usually buy the Australian dollar.
