TAKE A LOOK-Australia RBA keeps policy rate on hold

Australia's central bank kept its cash rate steady for a ninth
straight policy meeting on Tuesday June 3, a day before the
economy's latest report card is expected to show the fastest
pace of growth in almost two years.
    "Looking ahead, continued accommodative monetary policy
should provide support to demand, and help growth to strengthen
over time," RBA Governor Glenn Stevens said in a brief statement
after the bank's June policy meeting.
