According to RBA: "The inflation outlook, as assessed at present, would afford scope to ease policy further, should that be necessary to support demand."
RBA added: "Global growth is forecast to be a little below average for a time, but the downside risks appear to have abated, for the moment at least."
According to Greg McKenna, CEO at Global FX: "AUD doesn't like "afford scope to ease policy further, should that be necessary to support demand" in RBA statement it seems... the pair is well off highs."
Greg adds: "RBA statement is seriously dovish compared to what might have been expected - rates look headed lower from the RBA's language."
RBA also pointed once again that the Aussie is trading at higher levels than expected.
