RBA May 2019 Announcement – Have they finally pulled the trigger?

With a zero inflation for the quarter and an upcoming election, this month’s RBA Cash Rate is probably one the most interesting one we’ve had for a while!

It’s that time of the month again which means the RBA Board has met and announced the official cash rate.

And wow! There must be an intense discussion going on within the board. Here’s a quick update on what’s been happening:

RBA April 2019 Announcement – Are you prepared for what’s to come?

Folks, we’ve got a very FULL week ahead of us!

Firstly, it’s the first Tuesday of the month which means the RBA Board has met and announced the official cash rate.

And tonight at 7:30 PM (AEDT) is Budget Night! We’ll be hearing from Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and many are expecting some cash splurge. As indicated by the recent economic data, we need some good old stimulus in the economy.

This is then followed by a reply by the Labor party on Thursday! Do they agree? Do they not? Not to mention the recent shocking news that the Labor party released regarding their proposed Negative Gearing policy.

All this and more in Ben’s RBA commentaries. PLUS he’ll walk you through the global and domestic economy and give you his cash rate predictions for 2019! Make sure to tune in folks! 🙂

RBA March 2019 Announcement – What’s causing the deterioration in our economy?

It’s the first Tuesday of the month folks… which means the RBA Board has met and announced the official cash rate for March 2019!

As widely anticipated, the Cash Rate has remained on 1.5%.

Now if you tuned in to last week’s episode with Dr Andrew Wilson, you would notice that he forecasted the next rate cut to be as early as April!
Bill Evans, Chief Economist at Westpac on the other hand, is anticipating not one, but two rate cuts on the second half of the year.

What has triggered this and what do we think is going to happen? Why is it that most economists are forecasting a rate cut instead of a rate hike? Ben explains all this and more in this episode.

Episode 218 | The Warning Signs of an Economy in Trouble

Folks, while we’d love to bring you GOOD news all the time, unfortunately, some things — like the economy! — are simply out of our hands 🙁

So if you heard from us this morning because you receive our VIP emails (download the free chapter of Make Money Simple Again if want to be a part of our tribe), then you’ll know that the economy in not looking…… ahh…… too crash hot.

Here’s why…

As we’ll soon explain, there’s quite a few reasons why the Australian economy’s underperforming — but here’s the TOP TWO big things we are unpacking to tackle today’s episode…

  1. The Banking Royal Commission’s Final Report (and the unintended consequences some of the 76 recommendations will have)
  2. Governor Lowe and the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA)’s latest cash rate and commentary

 

If you’re not familiar with some of the things we refer to in today’s episode, here’s a rundown of the resources and commentary we refer too…

And the Less-Serious Stuff…

 

Here are the highlights…

 

 

RBA Feb 2019 Announcement – What’s causing the deterioration in our economy?

Today’s RBA announcement is more important than all of last year’s “business as usual” announcements… which is why Ben has dedicated more time to explaining it this time around.

Yes, the Cash Rate has remained on 1.5%.

But that’s more to this episode then just the cash rate. Why?

Because there are now more data flowing in, suggesting that over the last quarter of last year the economy appears to be in sharp decline.

In this episode, Ben explain to you why he thinks this is happening, what’s going to happen to interest rates now and where there might be a great opportunity for some.
Of course, given recent news with the Banking Royal Commission’s Final Report, he also highlights the significance of some of the 76 recommendations, and how this impacts the finance sector.
