What Does the Reserve Bank of Australia Restarting Rate Hikes Mean For Other Central Banks?

The RBA shocked global markets when they hiked policy rates by 25 basis points for their May policy meeting, after having just paused their aggressive rate hiking cycle in the prior meeting, in order to examine the effects of their year-long measures in tightening policy. Some will interpret the RBA's decision as a forward indicator for other major central banks' respective hiking and pausing cycles. However, Weston Nakamura discusses broader takeaways from the RBA with applications to the Fed, ECB, Bank of England, Bank of Japan, and other central bank policies.

Weston also discusses the currency markets in reaction to the RBA shock rate hike - namely the Aussie Dollar against the yen, and how the yen can serve as a useful base currency pair to read market reactions as central banks continue to release their respective policy decisions in the immediate term.
