Most importantly, it discusses the economic outlook and offers clues on the outcome of future decisions.
In the past statement on August 3, RBA did not make any changes in the interest rate and government securities purchase rate, but at the same time it announced that the economic recovery has been stronger than it was earlier expected. AUD/USD grew by 0.5%.
