Please try again Article content The currency sank and bonds rallied as Reserve Bank Governor Philip Lowe highlighted that policy has tightened very quickly and pointed to “lags” in its flow-through to the economy. The RBA delivered a fourth straight half-point hike this week to take the cash rate to 2.35% from a record-low 0.1% in May. “All else equal, the case for a slower pace of increase in interest rates becomes stronger as the level of the cash rate rises,” Lowe said in Sydney. In response, traders pared bets for rate hikes to quarter-point moves for the rest of 2022, from earlier pricing in at least one more half-point hike this year. Advertisement 3 Article content The governor added in response to a question after his speech that the RBA is “closer now to our estimates of neutral,” referring to a rate that is neither contractionary nor expansionary. “It’s at least 2.5%, but I have a lot of uncertainty around what the actual number is.”  Lowe said he expected further tightening, without specifying how high rates will need to go, adding only that the level and pace would be “guided by the incoming data and the evolving outlook for inflation and the labor market.” His comments contrast with global counterparts, including Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, who warned last month at Jackson Hole that borrowing costs are headed even higher and will remain elevated for some time. Advertisement 4 Article content Lowe’s more cautious approach reverberated through financial markets. Australian three-year yields plunged as much as 23 basis points to 3.03%. The Australian dollar slid 0.8% to a low of 67.13 cents. “At the end of the day, our monetary policy is going to be determined by Australian-specific conditions,” the RBA chief told a gathering of economists. “Labor market dynamics in Australia are very different to what they are in the US and the UK.” While economists at Commonwealth Bank of Australia lauded Lowe’s stance, those at Nomura Holdings Inc. were skeptical the RBA could buck the international policy trajectory. “Some global central bankers have been far more one‑handed over recent months,” said Gareth Aird, head of Australia economics at CBA, the nation’s largest lender. Advertisement 5 Article content “More specifically, ‘crush inflation as priority number one’ has been the dominant theme for some central bankers. In contrast, Governor Lowe has not taken that approach” and today’s speech was a case in point, Aird said. Andrew Ticehurst, senior economist at Nomura, expects the RBA “will ultimately be dragged along by hawkish central bank action elsewhere.” Royal Bank of Canada Chief Economist Su-Lin Ong meantime expects markets to revert to pricing in some probability of another 50-basis-point hike next month. “Actions of global central banks are important in domestic policy deliberations,” she said. Economists, in general, expect the RBA will slow the pace of increases to quarter-point moves in coming months. Money markets are pricing in a cash rate of 3.1% by year’s end, and a peak of 3.5% around mid-2023. Advertisement 6 Article content Australia’s central bank is relying on the tightest labor market in half a century and still-strong household spending to keep the economy ticking over during the rapid tightening. Lowe warned today that a sharp slowing in global growth would make the job of delivering a soft landing “much harder.”  He highlighted three uncertainties for policy makers: A global environment where the Fed has indicated a period of tight policy and below-trend growth will be required to get inflation under control and a slowdown in China How inflation expectations in Australia adjust to a period of surging prices How households respond to rising borrowing costs Lowe also referenced an independent review of the RBA currently underway, which followed criticism of its performance before and during the pandemic. Asked today whether he would resign his post, as some lawmakers have urged, the governor rejected the proposition and pointed out that Australia’s “economy is so much better” than it had been.
