4 Reasons Why the Australian Reserve Bank has not Cut Interest Rates Last Time

Australian Reserve Bank has not Cut Interest Rates

Australian Economy is Growing – Interest Rate Impact

The Australian economy grew 1.2% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. That growth exceeded expectations of a 1% economic expansion. This surprised numerous economic analysts and market observers, who mostly predicted a slower growth in the period. According to some experts, the economic boost could be attributed to stronger performance of several sectors aside from mining, which for quite some time has been solely driving growth of national economy.

Investors look at this news as an additional positive development. A better performing Australian economy could translate to better profitability. Most company shares in the market have been rising following the announcement of the better-than-expected economic growth. The local currency is also gaining strength against the dollar, which is ideal for many businesses, especially those that require importation of raw materials.
