Australia central bank raises rates, more expected

• Reuters

The Australian dollar jumped to a 14-month high and interbank futures slid as investors rushed to price in at least one more hike by Christmas, and rates above 4 percent in a year.

Markets elsewhere in Asia also moved to factor in expectations for more hawkish central banks.
