Just a few articles here about any prospects that the RBA would raise interest rates again this year: Read this article to find out what Su-lin Ong (RBC Capital Markets), John Edwards (HSBC) and Bob Cunneen (AMP Capital Investors) think about any future rate rises. And here’s another article entitled " RBA 'could lift rates again'. Other sources say to look to the bond markets for any signs for any future interest rate increases. Citigroup notes the bond market is indicating there is a 40% chance of a further hike by the end of September and a 70% chance of one by the end of the year, a view shared by Tollhurst Noall.
