In Australia, interest rates decisions are taken by the Reserve Bank of Australia's Board. The official interest rate is the cash rate. The cash rate is the rate charged on overnight loans between financial intermediaries, is determined in the money market as a result of the interaction of demand for and supply of overnight funds.

Latest Updates

The Reserve Bank of Australia left the cash rate unchanged at a record low of 0.75 percent during its December meeting, as policymakers assess the impact of the three cuts already delivered this year. The board added that they will continue to monitor the labor market and that it was reasonable to expect an extended period of low interest rates due to both global and domestic factors. Policymakers are also prepared to ease monetary policy further if needed to support growth.
