Earlier this week we heard from the Reserve Bank of Australia and the minutes of their meeting, which generally confirmed what most had suspected: that the strength of AUD was a pivotal factor in what was an otherwise close decision to cut interest rates.
The all-important policy guidance at the end of the minutes reveals that the RBA opted to use “some” (the “some” comment is a repeat from a couple of weeks ago) of the scope afforded by the low first quarter inflation figures and outlook, to lower the cash rate.
The latest Japanese GDP reading highlights the success that the new massive stimulus programme being carried out in Japan has had in revitalising that stricken economy. Today’s drop in UK inflation suggests that the new Bank of England governor may be wise to suggest a similar policy for the UK.
The markets seem to be extending their highs in recent days with no concern about the continuing threat of war in the Middle East.

A strong dollar and outperforming equity markets have shifted investor’s attention to more risky assets with silver suffering.
