Huge interest rate increase expected in June

Minutes from the Reserve Bank of Australia’s May meeting reveal borrowers narrowly avoided a larger rate rise this month and should expect a huge increase in June.

The RBA increased the cash rate by 25 basis points during its May 3 meeting but deliberated higher options.

The minutes show a rise of 40 basis points was seriously considered, fueling speculation it will happen at the next monthly meeting.
