The Australian Dollar Could Possibly Gain Massively As The RBA Set To Increase Interest Rate Further.

In an effort to drive down the looming inflation that is eroding the currency purchasing power and to keep the Australian dollar strengthened, the Reserve Bank of Australia has kept the interest rate high at 3.6%. The increment was done for the 10th consecutive rise. According to an economic analyst, the rate is anticipated to rise further to 3.85%.

However, as economic growth slows and the speculation for the unemployment rate increases, the interest rate hike is likely approaching its peak level. Also, the Gross Domestic Product is anticipated to slow in 2023.
