Aussie Appreciates Slightly Ahead of RBA’s Cash Rate Decision Due Tomorrow, 40+ PIP Volatility Likely in AUD Parity; Dec 06, 2021

Australia’s Cash Rate Decision

Tomorrow Australia will release Cash Rate Decision and Australia’s Monetary Policy Statement at 0330 GMT/0900 IST. Short term interest rates are the paramount factor in currency valuation – traders look at most other indicators merely to predict how rates will change in the future. The rate decision is usually priced into the market, so it tends to be overshadowed by the RBA Rate Statement, which is focused on the future. Monetary Policy Statement is among the primary tools the RBA Reserve Bank Board uses to communicate with investors about monetary policy. It contains the outcome of their decision on interest rates and commentary about the economic conditions that influenced their decision. Most importantly, it discusses the economic outlook and offers clues on the outcome of future decisions.
