Analysts anticipate the RBA to cut its interest rate from 1.5% to 1.25%. The chances of a rate cut are high as the Australian economy keeps weakening. The slowdown of the GDP growth, falling house prices and the rise of unemployment are among the key reasons behind the anticipated decision by the RBA. Despite the high chances of the rate cut, the central bank may keep its interest rate unchanged. If it happens, the Australian dollar may get positive momentum.
• If the RBA keeps its interest rate unchanged, the Australian dollar will rise;
• If the RBA cut its interest rate, the Australian dollar will fall.
Australia will release the employment change and unemployment rate on August 19, at 04:30 MetaTrader time (GMT+3).
