MNI BRIEF: RBA To Stop Market Meetings After Lunch Controversy
Reserve Bank of Australia policymakers will no longer attend meetings with market participants between its board meeting and the release of its Statement on Monetary Policy, Governor Philip Lowe told a Senate committee on Wednesday.

He noted that bond yields had started to rise before the lunch and that yields moved by a similar degree in New Zealand's bond market.
