1. Reserve Bank
Official Cash Rate and a monetary policy statement are due today. A press conference is also due to be held at 10am today. Expectations are that the Reserve Bank will probably leave its policy rate on hold at 1.75 per cent, after cutting it to this level in May. The unexpected surge in GDP in the first quarter means that there is no need for the bank to cut the rate at today's meeting. But expecatations are that the rate will be cut to 1.5 per cent in August and eventually to 1 per cent next year.

The Young Enterprise Business Hall of Fame Awards will be announced in the Great Room, Langham Hotel, 83 Symonds St in Auckland.
