RBA monetary policy meeting next week - preview (spoiler - no change expected)

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: Central Banks

The final Reserve Bank of Australia policy meeting for 2020 is on December 1, announcement due at 0330GMT.

As the post title says there is no change in policy expected after the moves that occurred in  November.  November summary is here:
After the November meeting RBA Governor Lowe held a news conference. 

AFAIK there is none scheduled this time around, however, Gov. Lowe will speak the following day when he appears before Parliament's House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics.

Apart from the RBA on Tuesday its a huge week for data from Australia including Q3 GDP. I'll have more to come on these separately:
