    What are AUD to CNY forecasts?

    FX analysts have reported that the Australian Dollar (AUD) rebounded despite the risk-off mood this week, initially stumbling due to a souring market mood sapping demand for the risk-sensitive AUD. The latest PMI surveys are now in focus, with evidence of an ongoing contraction in manufacturing activity that could hurt the AUD. However, strength in the services sector may limit losses. As Australia is a major commodities exporter, any changes in commodity prices, trade policies, and political developments, can have a significant impact on the AUD's value. The Aussie dollar's proxy status in the markets for risk appetite enables it to fluctuate, depending on traders' confidence in growth prospects for the world economy. A positive for AUD is any increase in construction and demand for iron ore, which is Australia's major export commodity. As for the Chinese Yuan (CNY), its slide past the key level of 7 per dollar suggests that the world's second-largest economy is facing challenges in its recovery from Covid-19. Typically, the Chinese government maintains some control over the Yuan's value, and a weakening Yuan can affect the price of imports, the competitiveness of Chinese exports, and potentially lead to capital outflows. A slide beyond a particular level does not provide a comprehensive picture of the overall state of the Chinese economy. In the past three months, AUD to CNY traded in a very stable 3.4% range from 4.5458 to 4.6990, with the price currently at 14-day lows near 4.6000, just below its three-month average. The Australian Financial Review’s survey of 36 economists predicts the Aussie dollar to be at 0.71 USD by the end of 2023, although the predictions range from 0.67 to 0.77 US cents. The concensus in the survey was that the RBA would make its first rate cut in early 2024.

    How to get a good AUD to CNY exchange rate

    There are several ways to save on exchange rates when converting Australian dollar to Chinese yuan:

    1. Shop around for the best AUD/CNY exchange rate: Exchange rates can vary significantly between different currency exchange providers, so it's important to compare rates from different sources before making a conversion.
    2. Timing is important: Keep an eye on the AUD/CNY rate on currency markets, as exchange rates can fluctuate frequently. Try to make your transactions when the exchange rate is in your favor. You can do this easily with our BER Smart Rate Tracker.
    3. Use a credit/debit or travel card that doesn't charge foreign transaction fees: Some credit cards charge additional fees for transactions made in a foreign currency, so it's important to check with your card issuer to see if they charge these fees and what their exchange rate is.
    4. Use a multi-currency account: Having a multi-currency account allows you to hold and transfer money in both AUD and CNY at close to the interbank rate. It also allows you to make payments or withdrawals in the local currency while avoiding high conversion fees.
    5. Buy currency in advance: If you know that you will need foreign currency in the future, consider buying it in advance when the exchange rate is favorable.

    The key is reducing excessive costs and fees

    Generally speaking, if you are buying Chinese yuan with Australian dollar, then it's better for the AUD/CNY exchange rate to be higher.

    However working against you are the fees all foreign exchange providers charge for providing their service. These fees is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

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

    It's worth noting that while these tips can help you save on exchange rates, it's important to be aware that no single method is guaranteed to provide the best exchange rate in every situation, and it may require some research and comparison-shopping to find the best option for your specific needs.

    Will the Australian dollar rise against the Chinese yuan?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add AUD/CNY to your personalised BER Smart Rate Tracker to track and benefit from currency movements.
