The latest quarterly survey of economists shows that the general consensus is that the Reserve Bank will leave official interest rates on hold until mid-2020. Previous expectations were for a rate rise in the second half of 2019. However, Shane Oliver of AMP Capital is one of three economists who expect the central bank to reduce the cash rate in 2019. Meanwhile, the US Federal Reserve is now widely tipped to increase interest rates twice in 2019.
