Expectations of an official interest rate cut in November have been heightened by comments made by Reserve Bank of Australia governor Philip Lowe. He has told the Citi Investment conference that further easing of monetary policy is likely to "get more traction" as the economy re-opens than it would have at the COVID-19 pandemic’s peak. Kristina Clifton of the Commonwealth Bank says the RBA is likely to reduce the cash rate from 0.25 per cent to 0.1 per cent in November, and expand its bond-buying program to include five and 10-year government bonds.
