RBA to continue wait and see approach: RateCity

Recent analysis of economic indicators conducted by RateCity.com.au indicates the RBA will hold its current cash rate at 1.75 percent due to the Federal Election results and potential fallout from Brexit.

Peter Arnold, RateCity.com.au data insights director said the RBA is unlikely to jump in without seeing how it all plays out.

“With the election still too close to call, the RBA will want to see how the nation and the government settle in before making a move,” he said.

“While the dust settles on last month's unexpected Brexit vote, leaving the world economy in tatters, the RBA is unlikely to act without seeing the full implications.

"Mortgage holders shouldn't be disappointed if the cash rate remains steady in July, as the banks have been taking matters into their own hands in recent weeks.

“Almost 180 fixed home loan rates were slashed in the last month, suggesting that there is at least one more rate cut to come this year, but the RBA is likely to hold it for another day."
