AUD to GBP Forecasts

In 2019 the AUD/GBP rate is in a tug of war between Brexit and the US/China trade war causing much volatility for the Aussie to pound exchange rate.  Read more

AUDGBP blended flags

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 November it was all downhill traffic for the Australian dollar dropping back from highs close to 70c at the beginning of the month to around 67c against the USD by month end. At the end of October the AUD had surged to a three month high against the US dollar following the third rate cut in a year by the US Federal Reserve. The gains were mainly due to the fall in the US dollar after the market sensed that US rates are more likely to rise now than fall further.

The RBA also added to the positive sentiment with an optimistic assessment of easing risks from the US-China trade war and Brexit. Accordingly markets are pulling back from bets that the cash rate will drop to 0.5 per cent and the possible start of quantitative easing.

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.

For AUD forecasts and predictions read our Australian Dollar Forecasts report.

Read more in the article AUD Forecasts.

 

British Pound Sterling (GBP)

Friday's election outcome could be the difference between the GBP/USD rate finishing the year either nearer to the low 1.20s or mid to high 1.30sSterling has climbed more than 9 per cent against the US dollar and even more against other currencies (since early October) during the election campaigning and since Boris Johnson announced a new Brexit agreement with Brussels that has reduced the possibility of the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal.

The pound would be doing far worse if it weren't receiving some support from the Bank of England which, surprisingly, is the only major central bank still considering higher interest rates in 2019.

Earlier in the year the pound was the worst-performing major currency by some margin. It slipped in late June to multi-month lows against a number of important currencies, including the Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, euro, Canadian dollar and Swiss franc.

For GBP forecasts and predictions read our British Pound Forecasts summary.

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.
