        Two masters and only one answer - RBA

        In a preview earlier this week, we noted that a firm Q1 Australian inflation print would likely confirm the end of the era of ultra-low interest rates in Australia and the possibility of an interest rate hike as early as next week.

          Surge in AU inflation heightens RBA rate hike expectations but is not a game changer for the AUDUSD

          This morning's release of March quarter Australian inflation data smashed already elevated expectations. The stunning beat firms up the chances that the RBA will raise interest rates at its monthly board meeting next week for the first time since 2010.

              Whether RBA will surprise us with a vaguely interesting meeting today or not is yet to be seen, but the fact that the Aussie sits at a pivotal level should be noted.

                While this week's focus will remain on the awful humanitarian news from the Russia-Ukraine war, markets will do their best to anticipate the path central banks will tread as they negotiate a treacherous mix of higher inflation and downside risks to growth.

                  The market's dovish reassessment of the Federal Reserve's hiking cycle sparked by the Russian Ukraine War has flowed directly into the Australian equity market today. Although the ASX200 has retreated from its early 1.6% gain, the index is heading into the close, trading 48 points higher at 7097 (0.67%).

                        The RBA meets next Tuesday, February 1st, for the first time in 2022. Employment and inflation data have beaten expectations by sufficient margin to encourage the bank to take its next shift to further policy normalization, earlier than anticipated at its last meeting in December.

                          In a light week of economic data ahead of the holiday season, the RBA minutes from the December Board meeting were in focus this morning as traders scanned for clues around the future of the RBA's QE program ahead of its all important February 2022 meeting.

                            As widely forecast, the RBA elected to keep interest rates on hold this afternoon at 0.1%. However, a subtle adjustment in the last paragraph appears to have eased its dovish forward guidance.

                              At its last scheduled monetary policy meeting for 2021, the RBA tomorrow will likely keep interest rates on hold at 0.1% and reiterate that interest rates are unlikely to rise until inflation is sustainably back within its target band.
