While the bank left rates unchanged in December and signalled no futher action is likely in the foreseeable future, priced-in expectations have pointed to the probability of at least one 25bps cut in the next 12 months. With that in mind, the Aussie’s slight bounce may have relected the absence of dovish rhetoric supporting market expectations for further easing.
