The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) peaked shortly after open on Monday, driven by energy shares, before paring back its gains this afternoon. The index was trading 1.11% higher at 6,612.60 points at the end of today’s session.

The market spent today awaiting the outcome of the Reserve Bank of Australia’s July meeting, to be released on Tuesday afternoon.

The big four banks have previously indicated they’re anticipating the meeting will see interest rates hiked between 0.25% and 0.5%, bringing Australia’s benchmark interest rate to between 1.1% and 1.35%.

However, T. Rowe Price’s Scott Solomon commented a hike of 0.65% – bringing rates to 1.5% – wouldn’t come as a surprise.

Energy shares led the ASX 200 on Monday, likely on the back of rising oil prices. The price of Brent crude oil lifted 2.4% to US$111.63 a barrel on Friday while the price of West Texas Intermediate oil gained 2.5% to US$108.43 a barrel.

Real estate shares were the next best performers, with the sector rising more than 2%.

As of Monday’s close, none of the ASX 200’s 11 sectors was trading in the red.
