The Sectoral Pulse | Will RBA's policy review meeting boost market sentiments?

The Board decided to maintain the current policy settings as expected by the markets. The board maintained its policy settings including: the targets of 10 basis points for the cash rate, the yield on the 3-year Australian Government bond; the parameters of the government bond purchase program; and the rate of zero per cent on Exchange Settlement balances.
