The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) defied its earlier downturn to close higher after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) lifted interest rates for a fourth consecutive month. The index was 0.07% higher at 6,998.10 points at Tuesday’s close.

The RBA hiked rates by a further 50 basis points today, bringing Australia’s official cash rate to 1.85% in another bid to dampen inflation, which reached 6.1% over the year to 30 June.

The benchmark index lifted out of its earlier slump immediately after the RBA released the outcome of its August meeting. It was driven higher by S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary (ASX: XDJ) shares and S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples (ASX: XCJ) shares. The sectors gained 1.5% and 1.2% respectively today.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX 200 Real Estate Index (ASX: XRE) suffered a 1.6% slump and the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) fell 1.1%.
