Surprising no one, the RBA left rates unchanged but repeated that the exchange rate is high by historical standards. The Russia/Ukraine story continued to dominate. Putin’s ended the war games that were taking place beside the Ukraine border which was seen as an easing of tensions. The headlines from his press conference were evidence of a fracture in the space-time continuim providing a glimpse into a a stranger parallel universe.
