RBA Monetary Policy Statement

It is highly unlikely that Australia’s economy entered a recession over the second half of last year, the Reserve Bank has concluded in its latest economic update. However, the bank also used its latest quarterly Statement on Monetary Policy to warn that “a widespread downturn in the housing market” is a “low-probability downside risk”. Before looking far forward in its projections for the next two years, the RBA had to acknowledge errors of the past, with the September quarter’s 0.5 per cent economic contraction pulling all its near-term GDP forecasts around 1-percentage-point lower.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the precious metal around current levels appears to be a good strategy.
