RBA’s cash rate for October unchanged at 0.25%

Reserve bank of australia sign

The Reserve Bank of Australia has today kept the cash rate at 0.25% for the 7th straight meeting in a row.

The RBA was widely predicted to reduce the rate further in October or November, although with the Federal Budget due today, the majority favoured a Melbourne Cup rate cut in November.

It has previously stated that it sees a cash rate of .25% as a floor but may need to consider the merits of a further reduction against other stimulus options, if signs of a recovery fail to emerge.

Rates are at a record low and lenders continue to offer very competitive rates. An AFG broker can answer your questions and look at your circumstances to make sure you’re prepared for what could be coming next. This could mean refinancing or approaching your lender for a better rate. Because an AFG broker does this type of work every day, and has a pretty good idea what lenders can do to win or keep your business.
