The Australian dollar traded higher against the U.S. dollar after the Reserve Bank of Australia's interest rate decision. The RBA kept its interest rate unchanged at 2.50%. This decision was expected by analysts.

The RBA said its accommodative monetary policy should provide support to demand and help growth to strengthen over time. Australia's central bank added that inflation is expected to be within the 2-3 per cent over the next two years.

The Reserve Bank of Australia governor Glenn Stevens said that there had been some improvement in the labour market.

Australia's trade deficit decreased to A$1.68 billion in June from A$2.04 billion in May. May's figure was revised down from a deficit of A$1.91 billion. Analysts had expected the trade deficit to decline to A$2.00 billion.
