Slim chance for November interest rate cut

# Economists predict a slim chance of interest rate cuts in the upcoming Reserve Bank Monetary Policy Committee meeting. BusinessTech reports the committee expressed concerns regarding inflation, specifically the anchoring of inflation expectations. As a result, economist Annabel Bishop anticipates interest rates will remain unchanged this month. She notes the impact of tighter credit conditions in the United States, suppressing consumer demand and, consequently, inflation. The recent decision by the United States Federal Reserve to hold rates eases market tensions. Geopolitical tensions and local fuel price hikes may affect inflation figures.
