    • Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull declared victory on Sunday in a marathon national election, with his coalition government retaining power and the opposition Labor Party conceding defeat.
    • It's still unclear whether Turnbull will lead a majority government or one that needs the support of smaller parties and independents.
    • The coalition has so far won 74 of 150 House of Representative seats and is projected to take 76, or the slimmest majority, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

    • Australia faces the prospect of losing its vaunted AAA rating, after S&P lowered its outlook on the nation's debt to negative.
    • The agency cited a combination of the government's budget deficits and the likelihood of a political stalemate as the country awaits the outcome of what is likely to be a very close election.
    • According to the latest tallies, the Liberal-National coalition looks set to win a slim majority but in many constituencies the results remain too close to call.

    • Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has pulled within striking distance of the 76 votes needed to form a narrow majority government in a cliffhanger election that has left Australia in limbo.
    • The Liberal-National coalition won 70 seats in the 150-member lower house to Labor's 67, according to a projection by the Australian Broadcasting Corp. with 80% of the vote counted.

    • Australia's central bank held its cash rate today at a record low of 1.75%, a widely expected decision given political uncertainty and a lack of timely information on domestic inflation.
    • The country still doesn't know who won Saturday's general election and final results may not be known for another week.
    • While Australia's triple-A rating is not under immediate threat, the top three credit agencies said it could be if the new parliament finds it harder to wind down the budget deficit.

    • While Australia's triple-A rating is not under immediate threat from the weekend's uncertain election result, Moody's, S&P and Fitch say it could be if the new parliament finds it harder to wind the budget deficit back.
    • A downgrade would be a political nightmare for whichever party is in power, after successive governments brandished the rating as a badge of honor. Only 10 nations have the top grade from all three major credit agencies.

    • Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is confident about forming a majority government "by the end of the week," even after Saturday's election failed to deliver a conclusive winner.
    • The exceptionally close vote may heighten fears that the country could be consigned to three years of minority government and paralysis on budget reform, a scenario that's expected to cause market jitters on Monday.

    • Australia's central bank held its powder dry overnight as the nation's robust Q1 report card curbed the need for additional monetary stimulus.
    • The RBA left its benchmark cash rate unchanged a month after it unveiled a 25 basis point cut, which took rates to their current record low of 1.75%.
    • The Reserve Bank of India also kept its key lending rate unchanged - at 6.5% - stating it would monitor economic developments for any further actions.

    • Australia's GDP figure blew past expectations in Q1, with annual growth rising 3.1%, marking the country's fastest expansion in three and a half years.
    • The result could keep the RBA on hold at its policy meeting next week, as the economy stays on track to meet the central bank's 2.5-3.5% growth forecast by June.
    • Australia's April trade numbers and retail sales data are scheduled to be released tomorrow.

    • The next prime minister of Australia will likely be aiming for something that has eluded recent predecessors: surviving a full term after years of revolving-door leadership.
    • Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Sunday called for a July 2 election, seeking a fresh mandate for the conservative government he took the helm of nearly eight months ago in an economy roiled by the end of a long resources boom.
    • Between 1975 and 2007, the average tenure of an Australian prime minister was nearly eight years. Lately, it is less than two years - including five prime ministers since 2010.

    • The RBA slashed its benchmark policy rate by 25 basis points to a record-low 1.75% overnight, and left the door open to additional easing moves.
    • The action sent the ASX 200 soaring by 2.1%, and the aussie tumbling by 1% vs. the greenback.
    • At least one analyst questioned the move, noting considerable firming in commodity prices of late, but another says the RBA has its eye on the recent rally in the Australian dollar which took it from worth about $0.68 early this year to $0.78 a few sessions ago.

    • The Reserve Bank of India has cut its repo rate by 25 basis points to 6.5%, making a widely expected reduction to bring the figure to its lowest in more than five years.
    • But in a surprise move, the RBI also raised the reverse repo by 25 basis points to 6.0%, while taking measures to ensure more availability of cash in the banking system.
    • Heading Down Under: Australia's central bank left interest rates at a record low 2.0%, where they have been for nearly a year, citing evidence of continued growth at home despite an unhelpful rise in the local dollar.

    • Marking yet another sharp turn in politics Down Under, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has warned he will dissolve parliament and call early federal elections if his reforms are not approved just six months into the job.
    • His decision reflects increasing frustration with crossbenchers, or senators from minor parties, who have repeatedly blocked key legislation that the ruling Liberal Party deems essential for the economy.

    • Considering there's been a commodity crash, the aussie (NYSEARCA:FXA) is doing pretty well. Though slightly lower on today's session after an RBA Deputy Governor talked it down overnight, the currency at $0.7439 to the greenback is sitting just a hair below an eight-month high.
    • Up next for consideration is whether the RBA will take more steps to try and weaken the currency.
    • Even if the aussie strengthened no further from the current level, says Capital Economics' Paul Dales, non-resources net exports would switch from adding about 100 basis points to GDP to subtracting about 100 - meaning annual GDP growth would fall from 3% at the end of 2015 to 1% by the end of 2016.

    • Australia's economy expanded more than expected in the fourth quarter, a hopeful sign the worst of the global commodity rout may be over for the resource-rich nation.
    • On an annual basis GDP grew 3%, back to its long-term trend rate and ahead of economists' consensus estimate for 2.5% growth.
    • "Today’s GDP results confirm the resilience of the Australian economy, thanks to a rebalancing of activity away from mining investment into the services sectors," said Jasmin Argyrou, senior investment manager at Aberdeen Asset Management.

    • The Reserve Bank of Australia issued a cautiously optimistic report on the economy in Australia in a new monetary policy statement. The RBA sees growth of 2.5% to 3.5% this year and headline inflation of between 2% and 3%.
    • The central bank warned that uncertainty with key trading partner China is still a significant risk.
    • Analysts think that if the RBA is it to be moved off its 2% benchmark rate level, it will be due to offshore headwinds.

    • The Reserve Bank of Australia has left its cash rate unchanged at 2%, judging that the prospects for the economy have improved.
    • "While GDP growth has been somewhat below longer-term averages for some time, business surveys suggest a gradual improvement in conditions in non-mining sectors over the past year," the central bank said. "This has been accompanied by stronger growth in employment and a steady rate of unemployment."
