RBA announces cash rate decision

07 April 2015

Amid speculation further cuts to the cash rate are on the cards this year, the RBA has today announced the outcome of its monthly board meeting.

As predicted by a majority of Australian economists, the RBA has kept the rates on hold for April at 2.25 per cent.

BT Financial Group’s chief economist Chris Caton, who predicted rates would stay on hold this month, believes there is still another rate cut to come.

“There's another cut out there, but May makes more sense,” he told comparison website

Similarly, ING Direct’s head of treasury Michael Witts noted that nothing has fundamentally changed since the RBA’s last board meeting.

“Although the Reserve Bank minutes indicated a capacity for further rate cuts if required they did not suggest a propensity to cut rates ahead of May,” Mr Witts said.
