Australian monetary policymakers already slashed the interest rate twice in March. By reducing it to the current level of 0.25%, they tried to enhance the domestic economic environment and give it the maximum possibility to recover from the coronavirus. Given the fact that the Chinese economy – the main trade partner of Australia – is already gaining back its powers, Australia should have an improved economic outlook by the time the new rate is released. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) explained that there will be no intention to raise back the rate until inflation gets to 2-3% channel and full employment is reached.

- Otherwise, it will fall.
