After a 12 month pause the RBA moved decisively in 2016 to lower Australia's official cash rate from 2% with cuts in May and August taking it to the current record low level of 1.5%. It has been a balancing act with a stubbornly strong dollar and a booming property market creating a tricky puzzle for Australia's central bankers. 2016 also saw a changing of the guard at the RBA with Glenn Stevens stepping down and Philip Lowe taking the reigns - but yet to make his mark when it comes to policy.
