The Reserve Bank of Australia is widely expected to leave official interest rates on hold at 1.5 per cent on 6 November. The central bank’s board will consider factors such as subdued wages growth, falling house prices and the high level of household debt in its monetary policy deliberations. The RBA has left the cash rate unchanged on Melbourne Cup Day every year since 2011, and the general consensus of economists is that rates will remain on hold in 2019.
