2:36 am

2:40 am
significance of this view? garfield: it is significant. new zealand was the first to start cutting last time around in 2016. and -- 2015 it was. they were the first to go this time. they would take their time about going. they came out with a statement saying the rate picture is much balanced. which sounds almost balanced. which sounds almost like a neutral or acquires i neutral bias. -- or a quasi-neutral bias. they put the market on notice not to expect it just because they cut once. they will cut against -- again soon after.
2:41 am
which was sort of the expectation. is -- gels with what the rba did yesterday with, they did not cut and that although they did open the door to a cut further down, it was very reluctant. developed market central banks in particular feel they do not have a lot of policy space and they are being dragged kicking and screaming towards using it. anna: we should not expect too much from this pioneer of inflation. garfield reynolds, head of the asian markets live team joining us on the last one for hours. you can get involved on the question of the day. are the markets to complacent? marketut to us in the team. tv is the function to use. let's get a first word news update.
