AUD and ETH in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the AUD vs ETH, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

 

Australian Dollar (AUD)

In late June and early July, the Australian dollar recovered from multi-month lows against a number of important currencies; however, these recoveries were minor relative to losses over the past 18 months. Against the US dollar, at a rate of 70¢ (July-2), the Aussie was 14 percent lower than its best rate from 2018.

Investors have sold AUD in recent months as they’ve bet on aggressive interest-rate cuts by the Reserve Bank of Australia. These bets paid off: the RBA cut its cash rate in both June and July to a record low of 1 percent.

Lower borrowing costs are necessary, investors believe, in light of persistently soft domestic data and the fallout from a US-China trade standoff that shows no sign of nearing an end.

AUD will continue to track changes in interest-rate expectations. Economists expect at least one further cut this year and many expect two by early 2020. After July's cut, the RBA hinted it would leave rates unchanged for several months.

Interestingly, AUD has decoupled from commodity prices in 2019. The price of iron ore (Australia’s largest export) nears multi-year highs while AUD languishes.

Further RBA interest rate cuts this year are now a certainty, and that doesn’t bode well for currency valuations. Westpac has predicted three cuts this year.

Etherium (ETH)

2018 was the year that the cryptocurrency dream came crashing down. The bubble that many had suspected was building in 2017 was realised and ethereum went on to lose roughly 80 percent of its value. Ethereum ended the year at $136, having battled with major obstacles including regulatory crackdowns and social media advertising bans.

In the first 2 ½ months of 2019, ethereum at least held its value, trading between $100 and $170.

In 2019, on balance, press was still mostly negative on cryptocurrencies. This press included the bankruptcy in February of Canada’s largest crypto exchange, QuadrigaCX, and March’s decision by the CBOE (a major US derivatives exchange) to ditch bitcoin futures contracts amid declining interest.

Because the release of the CBOE’s futures contracts coincided with the crypto market top in December ’17–January ’18, superstitious folk said in March they were anticipating the emergence of a new bull market.

An Investment Week expert said in February that ethereum predictions were now “pointless.”

Why can't I just get the AUD/ETH market rate I see online or in the media?

The mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news. It is actually just the half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the AUD / ETH was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate). Some providers such as Transferwise will quote you the mid-rate (or close to) and charge a separate percentage fee.

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.
