RBA Cash Rate September 2022: From Trough to Peak: How Bad Is Today’s Market?

Inflation is at a 20-year high at 6.1% – and continuing to rise.  

So how has the Reserve Bank of Australia responded in its September cash rate?  

Tune in to find out and uncover if Australia’s cash hikes are set to slow down soon…or if the RBA’s new forecast reveals otherwise. 

Across the globe, the inflation story continues to unfold and trade tensions between Russia and the Eurozone simmer. We see oil prices and energy suppliers shifting which leaves the question: How will it impact Australia?  

Plus Ben unpacks these key themes in this month’s economic update: 

  • The US Fed’s warpath against inflation   
  • RBA is back at it again with another rate rise  
  • Why APRA must act now to reduce its buffer rate 
  • The trough and peak results in Australia’s property market during COVID
