RBA Cash Rate July 2022: Yet Another Cash Hike BUT Why Consumer Sentiment is not as bad as it seems?

And just like that, we’re back with another jam-packed economic and RBA update!  

This month saw the RBA lift cash rates by yet another 50 basis points, bringing the cash rate to 1.35% – the biggest month-on-month increase in 22 years and the highest cash rate since early June 2019.

Here’s our other key themes for this month’s economic update: 

  • The world’s leading economies are going to manufacture an economic slowdown to curb global inflation 
  • What do we need to do to break our current upswing in the domestic inflation cycle? 
  • Consumer Sentiment – how worried should we be? 
  • A snapshot look at the 2021 Census Data 
  • And finally, an important Property update
