RBA Cash Rate June 2022: Onwards & Upwards: How high will interest rates go?

The temperatures are dropping, the end of the financial year is nigh and the Reserve Bank of Australia has decided to lift cash rates for the second consecutive month.  

The official cash rate has now been lifted by 50 basis points – the biggest rate hike in 22 years – and now sits at 0.85%. The question now remains: How high can we expect rates to rise, and when?  

A certain sector within the property market is also facing a new threat…how will it impact the wider industry if it crumbles under pressure?  

Here are our three other key themes for this month’s economic update: 

  • Persisting global inflation challenges
  • We have a new Federal Government with their hands on the economic wheel – the big question is, how well can they drive? 
  • The RBA is at it again increasing the cash rate – and they’re not done yet… 

And here are all the time stamps!
