RBA minutes: Developments in the labour and housing markets warrant careful monitoring

The minutes of the June RBA meeting when interest rates were held unchanged at 1.5% have been released.

As the RBA minutes notes: "The Board continued to judge that developments in the labour and housing markets warranted careful monitoring. Taking into account all the available information, including that year-ended growth in output was expected to have slowed in the March quarter, the Board judged that holding the accommodative stance of monetary policy unchanged at this meeting would be consistent with sustainable growth in the economy and achieving the inflation target over time."
