As expected, the Reserve Bank of Australia has left its benchmark overnight cash-rate target at a record low of 2.75%, citing below-average growth at home and abroad. RBA Governor Glenn Stevens also noted that the Australian dollar remains high but could "depreciate further over time, which would help to foster a rebalancing of growth." Stevens reiterated that inflation could "provide some scope for further easing" if necessary. The Aussie (FXA) is -0.7% at $0.9175. (PR)
