April RBA announcementAt its April meeting today, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) decided to leave the official cash rate unchanged at 1.5 per cent.
While the RBA decided to leave the official cash rate on hold for the 18th consecutive month, quite a few lenders raised their home loan interest rates last month – some by as much as 0.05% p.a.
Lenders quoted the rising cost of funding as the motivation for their upward rate adjustments.
