Cash rates on hold for 18th month, April 2018

At its 3rd April meeting, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) decided to leave the official cash rate unchanged at 1.5%.

While the RBA decided to leave the official cash rate on hold for the 18th consecutive month, quite a few lenders raised their home loan interest rates last month – some by as much as 0.05% p.a.

Lenders quoted the rising cost of funding as the motivation for their upward rate adjustments.
