On Stockhead today, is geothermal lithium the zero-carbon production grail, how Red 5 will soon become a mid-tier miner, and who’s ready for reopening trade V2.0?

But first … the day ahead.

The RBA’s monetary policy decision will be in focus today as the bank’s board convenes for its monthly meeting.

Although the market is expecting interest rate to remain intact at 0.1%,  pressure is mounting for the bank to defer the tapering of asset purchases announced last month.

The CBA predicts that tapering will now start in December, as opposed to October announced previously.

The RBA’s announcement will be released to the market at 2:30pm today.

And for the oilies and nu-metal fans in Perth, there are two days of glorious conferences at the Hyatt Regency coming up. On Wednesday, it’s time for the annual RIU Good Oil and Gas Energy Conference. And Thursday sees the Hyatt host the New World Metals Investment Day.
