Australia's Central Bank Keeps Rates Unchanged

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), which held its monthly board meeting on Tuesday, does not comment on its reasoning when leaving interest rates unchanged.

The central bank has raised its key cash rate three times since May in an effort to restrain inflation.
