Is the RBA to hold the rate?
The Reserve Bank of Australia’s release of the interest rate is at 5:30 MT on November 5.

Although the Australian financial authorities previously expressed their will to stimulate the economy and lift the inflation rate through rising wages, it has been outlined that households and savers would suffer more if the rate was lowered. For this reason, no change is expected this time, but let’s keep our eyes open.
