2) the bank is comfortable with the current level of the AUD and interest rates;

3) the significant decline in the AUD is having a positive impact on spending and production;

4) the AUD is not seriously out of line with fundamentals;

5) Gov Stevens expects the Fed to hike rates before Christmas;

6) China is slowing and authorities are responding to that.”
