RBA TFF drawdown steady since Sep 30 as bks await rate cut

Total amount drawdown from the RBA's Term Funding Facility has been unchanged for three straight weeks at A$82.91 billion (Oct 28) as banks wait for a cut in the TFF rate at the board meeting on November 3.
In fact, since September 30 no new funds have been drawn down by banks. On that day -- the last day for accessing initial drawdown -- total amount taken up was A$83.19 billion, and it fell marginally after that due to repayment.
The RBA is widely expected to lower TFF rate to 10bps from 25bps, but the lower rate will be applicable to only new drawings.
