Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.


Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Australian Dollar and Canadian Dollar

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the AUD vs CAD, you should pay attention to both Australian Dollar and Canadian Dollar news and forecasts.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

In the weeks leading up to this report (12-Nov-18), the Australian dollar was among the best performing global currencies. A broader 2018 view will, though, show a currency that is struggling. The good news is that the Aussie’s prospects for 2019 remain good.

Important for AUD in November was the break of an important technical trendline that demarcated the 2018 downtrend. Between January and late October, the currency lost nearly 14 percent against the US dollar to trade at a 2-1/2-year low of $0.702. It had recovered by the time of this report into the $0.72s. Similar could be said of AUD’s performance against the euro.

Easing trade tensions between the US and China was another big positive for AUD in November.

Inaction on interest rates from the RBA has lended itself to lower AUD exchange rates but this will change next year. The inevitability of higher Australian interest rates will become the narrative in mid-2019, thinks Citibank, and this will drive capital into AUD and force its price up to $0.77. An even stronger bullish view was expressed in September by UBS, which predicted a rise in AUD to $0.82 by 2019 year-end.

Canadian Dollar (CAD) - Market news and forecasts

In the weeks leading up to this report (9-Nov-18), the Canadian dollar had struggled somewhat on the back of a total reversal in the oil market. The price of oil, which Canada exports in great quantities, had fallen in 5 straight weeks, by 23 percent in total, and as a consequence the Canadian dollar lost value against many of the G10 currencies. The benchmark exchange rate, USD/CAD, rose on November 9th to a 16-week high (CAD low) of 1.323.

Away from volatile energy prices, conditions at the time of this report were good for Canadian dollar appreciation. Chief among supporting factors is the formation of a new trade agreement between the US, Canada and Mexico, which has undoubtedly led to firmer Canadian interest rate expectations. The Bank of Canada said in October that it would likely “need to raise [interest rates] to a neutral stance to achieve the inflation target” — well above where rates are now.

Over the medium term, “the Canadian dollar still looks cheap,” analysts at Société Générale said in November. Citibank are forecasting the loonie slightly stronger by the middle of 2019 at 1.30 per USD.

Why can't I just get the same AUD/CAD market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The AUD/CAD mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google or the News, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the AUD / CAD was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.


When you look up the current Australian Dollar to Canadian Dollar exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

AUD to CAD mid-rate on google

AUD to CAD mid-rate on google search

Getting a great AUD to CAD mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.

You can use our AUD to CAD currency converter to calculate equivalent amounts in each currency using the latest mid-market exchange rates. Then choose your transaction type for specific Australian Dollar cross rates and reviews of leading foreign exchange providers versus the Banks.
