From Alan Oster, Group Chief Economist at NAB:

- RBA remains focused on the post mining investment boom economy.

- Falling confidence and a soft medium-term outlook mean the rate needs to move lower.

- Weakness locally has tipped our previous call of no rate cut in December.

- Any further loosening of policy depends on the AUD, activity indicators, asset prices and the smoothness of the mining transition phase.
