December 2018 

The final cash rate of 2018 has been announced by the Reserve Bank of Australia.

RBA governor Philip Lowe announced the rate would be remaining at 1.5%.

Experts and analysts were expecting the decision, citing low unemployment and wage growth.

While many over the last few months have begun predicting the rate might stay the same until 2020, the shadow board of the RBA has said there is “an increasing need” for a hike in the next six months.
