RBA Cash Rate February 2022: Biggest Sure Bet Prediction for Property this year

It’s the first RBA Announcement of the year so there are lots to catch up on folks!

The last update was exactly two months ago and a LOT has happened since then (take the inflation rate for example!) so tune in for some jam-packed economic update.

Here are the key themes for this month’s economic update:

  • The global Omicron wave of the pandemic still playing havoc with the world’s and the Australian economies.
  • Will the RBA hold it nerve on the cash rate in 2022, or will the risk of rising inflation force its hand?
  • What is my biggest sure bet prediction for property this year?

And here are all the time stamps!
