RBA likely to deliver Christmas rate cut
The ongoing eurozone crisis may force the RBA to introduce further interest rate cuts before Christmas
The ongoing eurozone crisis may force the RBA to introduce further interest rate cuts before Christmas. Chief economist at AMP Capital, Shane Oliver said there is a 60 per cent chance the RBA will sanction another reduction to rates in the next few weeks.
He stated the bank's committee will meet on December 6th to discuss the issue and another gathering is not scheduled until February, meaning action may have to be taken sooner rather than layer if the institution feels the European financial crisis will worsen heading into 2012. "There's a 60 per cent chance they will, but I think 100 per cent they should. The risks are just too great," Mr Oliver was quoted as saying.
