Notes
  • F1 Interest Rates and Yields – Money Market
  • The 'Target cash rate' is set by the Reserve Bank's Board at each Board meeting. From January 1990 the Bank commenced announcing an explicit target to the market. While the RBA Board has met on the first Tuesday of every month (excluding January) since late-1981, it was not until late-1998 that the Bank formalised the current approach of announcing changes shortly after the conclusion of the meeting. Since February 2008, the Bank has announced changes in policy at 2.30pm on the afternoon of the Board meeting; these changes are effective on the following business day. Prior to this (from 1998 until 2007), changes in policy were announced at 9.30am on the day after the Board meeting.
  • The 'Interbank Overnight Cash Rate' is a weighted average interest rate on overnight unsecured loans between banks in the Australian dollar market (the ‘Cash Market’). From 9 May 2016 the Cash Rate is calculated from transactions settled in the Reserve Bank Information Transfer System (RITS). For more details, see the Cash Rate Procedures Manual <http://www.rba.gov.au/mkt-operations/resources/cash-rate-methodology/cash-rate-procedures-manual.html>. From July 1998 until 6 May 2016, the Cash Rate is the weighted average of the interest rates at which banks borrowed and lent exchange settlement funds overnight, calculated from a survey of Cash Market participants. The 11am call rate is used prior to July 1998.
  • The “highest” interbank overnight Cash Rate represents the highest rate for a transaction in the Cash Market. The “lowest” rate refers to the lowest rate for a transaction in the Cash Market. Prior to 9 May 2016, the series contain the highest and lowest weighted average rate reported by a bank transacting in the Cash Market.
  • Volume represents the value of Cash Market transactions settled in the Cash Market. From 9 May 2016, this is calculated from transactions settled in the Reserve Bank Information Transfer System (RITS). Prior to 9 May 2016, the volume is the average of the total unsecured funds borrowed and lent in the interbank market for overnight terms, calculated from a survey of Cash Market participants.
  • The ‘Cash Rate Total Return Index’ measures the performance of an investment earning the Cash Rate, where interest is reinvested each day. The process for calculating the index is specified in the Cash Rate Procedures Manual <http://www.rba.gov.au/mkt-operations/resources/cash-rate-methodology/cash-rate-procedures-manual.html>.
  • Interest rates and yields are representative. Unless otherwise stated, they are the midpoint of predominant bid and offer quotations in each market as identified by the RBA.
