EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

  • The RBA's October meeting isn't set to provide any fireworks given the excitement witnessed in recent months and the recent tapering of the Bank's bond purchases, which was coupled with an elongated assessment period when it comes to the size of those purchases (installed at the end of the Bank's September meeting and in place until February 2022).
  • As a result, unanimous consensus looks for the RBA to leave its monetary policy settings unchanged.
  • Truth be told, more focus is set to fall on the release of the RBA's Financial Stability Report, due Friday, given recent comments from RBA Assistant Governor Bullock and news that "over the next couple of months, the APRA also plans to publish an information paper on its framework for implementing macroprudential policy."
