RBA leaves rate on hold; now for the lenders

May 06, 2014

The Reserve bank has again left the official cash rate on hold following weaker than expected rise in consumer prices combined with strong unemployment data, the ninth consecutive month that the official cash rate has remained on hold, at the historically low level of 2.5%.
Although this month’s decision was no surprise to economists, most are expecting that there will be a rise in the rate although exactly when is still a matter for the crystal ball. Most economists are predicting the next change to occur either later this year or early in 2015.
There is some speculation however that some rates will move independently of the RBA announcement. In recent months, there have been examples of lenders both increasing and decreasing a different loan, which shows that there are no clear signals for a move in the short term.
