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

The AUD/CNY 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 / CNY was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market AUD/CNY midrate the better deal you are getting.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

The three things you need in order to get a good AUD to CNY exchange rate

  1. Know the latest AUD/CNY market mid-rate. The closer your final exchange rate is to this real market rate the better deal you are getting. You should also judge how the current rate compares to the historic rate over the past 10 years.
  2. Compare your Bank's transaction costs to several licensed FX providers, remember to compare the exchange rate margins as well as the various types of fees. We make that easy to do with our calculators for Foreign Transfers and Travel Money transactions.
  3. Review up-to-date Currency News and Forecasts for both the and currencies, if available.

Currency news and forecasts for Australian Dollar and Chinese Yuan

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

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

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

Following a flash crash in early January, which saw the Australian dollar briefly trade at a 10-year low of $0.674, the Aussie recovered to $0.73, but then, as it had done before the flash crash, it commenced with a slow and steady decline, and it was back at $0.705 in mid-March and was predicted to fall further.

In February, HSBC predicted a year-end AUD/USD rate of $0.66. In March, Westpac and JP Morgan were slightly more upbeat and argued for $0.68.

Fuelling lower exchange rate forecasts is the Australian economic story, for which major themes include a housing market slump, Chinese growth and the US-China trade spat. The RBA slashed growth forecasts in February and markets are now pricing in 1-2 interest rate cuts this year.

Another Aussie exchange rate worth mentioning is AUD/GBP, which sank in mid-March to its lowest level in nearly 3 years, at just £0.53. The Australian dollar has been unable to compete with the pound of late, since the latter benefits every time the British government fails to make a decision on how to deliver Brexit (every time Brexit appears less likely or to be delayed).

Chinese Yuan (CNY) - Market news and forecasts

In early 2019, the yuan has appreciated away from long-term lows established in the fourth quarter of last year. By March-13, the yuan held year-to-date gains of 2.5 percent and 4 percent against the dollar (¥6.708) and euro (¥7.574) respectively, and these amounts increase to 4 and 7 percent if current rates are compared with fourth-quarter lows.

The main news piece for yuan investors remains the US-China trade spat, for which negotiations are still taking place. The massive tariffs that might be imposed (or remain) on Chinese goods makes them expensive to American buyers, which lessens their appeal and necessitates a weaker yuan, especially so if Beijing instructs the PBOC to intentionally weaken the currency to offset the impacts of tariffs (in March, the PBOC denied it would devalue the yuan to boost exports, or strengthen it to ease trade tensions).

For now, the yuan will continue trading between ¥6.65 to ¥6.90 to the dollar, a Natwest analyst said in March.

Nomura argued that the yuan was already overvalued against the dollar and would weaken "in the medium to long term," although it couldn’t offer any precise exchange rate targets.
