The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is considering buying A$3bn (US$1.8bn) of Commonwealth government bonds (ACGBs) with maturities between May 2021 and April 2024, IFR News reports.

This will be the RBA’s fourth round of ACGB purchases since introducing open-ended quantitative easing on March 19.

On Wednesday, the RBA extended QE into the semi-government sector to help compensate for shrinking state revenues.
