RBA Cash Rate September 2022: From Trough to Peak: How Bad Is Today’s Market?

Across the globe, the inflation story continues to unfold and trade tensions between Russia and the Eurozone simmer. We see oil prices and energy suppliers shifting which leaves the question: How will it impact Australia? 

Back home the Reserve Bank of Australia has lifted rates for the fifth consecutive month by 50 basis points, bringing the cash rate 2.35% – the sharpest rise on record since the RBA was made an independent body from Government in 1960.  

Tune in to find out if Australia’s cash hikes are set to slow down…or if the RBA’s new forecast reveals otherwise. 

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

  • The US Fed’s warpath against inflation   
  • RBA back at it again with another rate rise  
  • Why APRA must act now to reduce its buffer rate 
  • The trough and peak results in Australia’s property market during COVID
