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

The AUD/GBP 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 / GBP 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/GBP 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.

  3. Review up-to-date Currency News and Forecasts for both the and currencies, if available.

Currency news and forecasts for Australian Dollar and British Pound Sterling

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 GBP, you should pay attention to both Australian Dollar and British Pound Sterling news and forecasts.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

Improved risk appetite and thriving commodities markets helped lift the Australian dollar in April.

Per bank forecasts, the Australian dollar will strengthen slightly against the US dollar between now and mid-year, before weakening quite significantly into year-end.

In April, NAB predicted appreciation to US$0.74 before the end of June, from a mid-April rate of US$0.719.

In March, both Westpac and JP Morgan predicted an Aussie slide to US$0.68 in the second half of the year. Those banks were at least more optimistic than HSBC, which argued in February for US$0.66. ANZ said that the Aussie would lose value against resilient Asian currencies like the Chinese yuan and Singapore dollar.

In the second half of the year, major economic themes should re-emerge, many of which are negative; these include a housing market slump, the US-China trade spat and a weaker Chinese economy. In April, the Reserve Bank of Australia appeared to hint at a possible shift to a rate-cutting bias at its next meeting when it said it would “monitor developments and set monetary policy to support sustainable growth and inflation”—that would be an across-the-board negative for AUD.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

Update 14-April: The pound hovered between US$1.30 and US$1.31 (in line with 3-month averages) after the EU granted the UK a Brexit extension until the end of October. No-deal risk is gone for now and anything is possible, including a new British prime minister, a general election and/or second referendum.

Experts at MUFG said in April that sterling would likely trade between US$1.30 and US$1.34 until more clarity emerged.

If an election is called, the pound could depreciate to US$1.24, a UBS analyst said, due to “heightened uncertainty” (the opposition Labour party is consistently ahead in the polls).

Goldman Sachs said in April that sterling was set for a “big finish” (higher) once the gridlock in the UK parliament ends and a deal is agreed and certainty found.

Earlier this year, currency analysts at HSBC estimated that the pound would be valued at levels near US$1.10 in the event of no-deal, near US$1.45 with a deal and at US$1.55 if Brexit is cancelled.
