Andrew Ticehurst of Nomura expects the Reserve Bank of Australia’s board to retain its bias toward tightening monetary policy when it meets on 4 February. Ticehurst also forecasts that the central bank will scale back its economic growth and inflation forecasts. The general consensus of economists is that the RBA will leave the cash rate unchanged at 1.5 per cent throughout 2019, although financial markets have priced in the chance of a rate cut late in the year.
