AUD and GBP in the Markets

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

 

Australian Dollar (AUD)

In late May the Australian dollar stabilized after a shocking mid-April to mid-May period, during which it suffered across-the-board losses, including losses worth 5 percent against the US dollar. May’s closing exchange rate of US69.3¢ keeps the Aussie near long-term lows, but it’s an improvement on May-17's rate of 68.7¢ — its lowest weekly closing rate since early 2016.

A stuttering domestic economy and elevated US-China trade tensions (which threaten commodities demand and risk appetite) have driven the Aussie lower.

In an effort to support economic growth and boost inflation, which remains well below target, Australia's central bank cut interest rates in early June, and is expected to do so at least once more this year, making the Australian dollar susceptible to yield-chasing capital outflows.

Read more in the article AUD Forecasts.

 

British Pound Sterling (GBP)

The pound slipped to a 5-month low of 1.12 euros in June. Against the US dollar, it climbed away from May’s multi-month low of $1.256 to $1.27, but was still 5 percent lower than March's high of $1.338.

Brexit paralysis in the UK has led to declines in business investment and two months of economic contraction (for the months of March and April).

Pound valuations will continue to fluctuate based on No-deal, Deal and Remain probabilities. No-deal prospects may increase if, as is predicted by betting markets, ardent Brexiteer Boris Johnson becomes the UK’s next prime minister. However, some banks argue that Johnson’s appointment would make little difference to no-deal or remain probabilities.

The pound is receiving some support from the Bank of England which, surprisingly, is the only major central bank to be considering raising interest rates this year.

Read more in the article GBP Forecasts.

Why can't I just get the AUD/GBP 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 / GBP 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.

AUDGBP blended flags

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