Bottom line:

  • The RBA's September Board Minutes remained generally positive, with few major changes to the outlook.
  • The RBA continued to note above-trend growth and a falling unemployment rate, as well as a gradual improvement in wages growth.
  • The RBA also appears broadly comfortable with the developments in the housing market despite recent mortgage rate increases by some banks.
  • We continue to expect the RBA to remain on hold until late 2019.

GS also note that the RBA continues to highlight US trade policy as a key uncertainty for the world economy
