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 comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

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

When you look up the current Australian dollar to Hong Kong dollar exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

AUD to HKD mid-rate on google

AUD to HKD mid-rate on google search

Getting a great AUD to HKD mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.

You can use our AUD to HKD currency converter to calculate equivalent amounts in each currency using the latest mid-market exchange rates. Then choose your transaction type for specific Australian dollar cross rates and reviews of leading foreign exchange providers versus the Banks.


3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Australian dollar and Hong Kong dollar

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency is always determined quoted in comparison to another currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the AUD vs HKD, you should pay attention to both Australian dollar and Hong Kong dollar news and forecasts.

Australian dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

The Australian dollar could slump more than 10 percent against the US dollar into the "mid-60 cents" region within twelve months, said a senior money manager in June. Given RBA Governor Philip Lowe’s insistence that “there is no strong case for a near-term adjustment in monetary policy,” there is little incentive for investors to hold AUD instead of USD (which will benefit from future Fed hikes), the money manager believes.

A fall to 65 US cents (at 74.4 cents in mid-June ’18) would take AUD back to financial crisis levels last seen in early 2009.

Also pessimistic on the Australian dollar are Westpac and ANZ. Westpac have forecast AUD at 72 US cents in mid-2019 and ANZ have advised clients to “sell the [AUD] rallies.”

Technically, the outlook for AUD/USD remains poor. Longer-term charts show AUD/USD breaking from an upwards trend channel and meaningful psychological support won't be in play until the 70 cents handle.

Against the New Zealand dollar, AUD fell 2 percent in the weeks leading up to this report to N$1.072; however, a bird’s eye view shows AUD/NZD drifting sideways for the past 3 ½ years.

Hong Kong dollar (HKD) - Market news and forecasts

Between April and June, the Hong Kong dollar traded at or close to the weaker boundary of its allowed trading range (close to 7.85 per US dollar). The Hong Kong Monetary Authority intervened in FX markets to defend the currency’s peg several times within this timeframe.

HKD has fallen to multi-decade lows due to a widening of the US-Hong Kong interest rate differential. Despite the HKMA raising interest rates in step with the US Federal Reserve, rates paid on HKD have remained low over the past eighteen months due to abundant liquidity in Hong Kong’s financial system; meanwhile, rates paid on US dollars have risen steadily. For large investors, this provides an incentive to exchange (sell) borrowed Hong Kong dollars for higher-yielding US dollars.

Due to Hong Kong’s sizeable foreign exchange reserves, which are among the largest in the world, a speculative attack on the USD/HKD peg is unlikely.

In late May, HKD climbed to a six-month high against the euro, at 9.031 per EUR. By mid-June it had weakened back into the mid-9.2s.
