RBA’s cash rate for December unchanged at 0.1%
After a challenging year, the RBA has met for the final time in 2020 and decided to leave the cash rate unchanged.
After reducing the rate three times during the year, including to a record low of .10% last month, the RBA opted to wait until its next meeting in February to further assess the impact of these reductions and its quantitative easing program.
In the lead up to the next meeting our central bank will continue to monitor the global COVID-19, the opening of state borders, our exchange rate and its impact on export competitiveness and the looming reduction to government support packages.
