In the world of currency valuation, short-term interest rates take center stage. Traders often analyze various indicators primarily to anticipate future rate movements. These rates play a pivotal role in shaping currency values, making them a key focus for market participants.

In its recent policy meeting on Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023, the Reserve Bank of Australia opted to maintain the status quo by keeping the current interest rate steady at 4.10%. This decision had the potential to exert downward pressure on the Australian currency pair. Nonetheless, a Reuters poll suggested a possible rate hike in the near future, with expectations of rates reaching a peak of 4.35% by year-end. This potential increase was attributed to persistent inflation levels that continued to surpass the target set by the central bank.

The upcoming Cash Rate decision is scheduled for November 7, 2023, at 3:30 AM GMT.
