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/JPY market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

When you look up the current Australian dollar to Japanese yen 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.

3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Australian dollar and Japanese yen

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 JPY, you should pay attention to both Australian dollar and Japanese yen news and forecasts.

Australian dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

The Australian dollar took a hit in February and March, during which it gave up 4% of its value against the US dollar, and it continues to struggle in April.

In the third week of April, a rather dovish set of RBA meeting minutes eliminated gains made during a modest recovery period earlier in the month and the Aussie was once again in the mid-0.76s versus USD – it had been as high as 0.813 in January – and was close to long-term lows against the euro, in the low 0.62s.

Over the medium term, the Australian dollar is likely to receive support from commodities, which will continue to rally according to a PIMCO analyst. Speaking in April, the analyst said that commodities “would shine” given the transition to an environment in which low and stable inflation is preferable.

Any support lent by commodities will, however, be offset by a central bank that sees little reason for a near-term increase in interest rates and by uncertainties surrounding a potential US-China trade war. Trade tensions were at least eased when at the Boao Forum in April, Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke of the need to ease tariffs and further open up China’s economy.

In March, the median estimate of analysts polled by Reuters had AUD/USD at 0.78 at year-end.

Japanese yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

The Japanese yen spent much of 2017 trading up and down between 108 and 115 per US dollar, but has been the best performing G10 currency in early 2018. In the first seven weeks of the year, USD/JPY fell 6% to 106.11, marking the yen’s strongest level against the dollar in fifteen months.

The yen has also made back ground against the euro, strengthening by mid-February to rates in the low 132s; however, the yen remains weak against the euro by recent standards – EUR/JPY had been as low as 109.2 in mid-2016.

The yen’s strength in early 2018 will have surprised analysts at UBS. Entering the new year, the bank predicted that the yen would do worst of all the FX majors this year on the grounds that Shinzo Abe’s re-election in 2017 would likley mean a continuation of extremely loose monetary policy in Japan. UBS believed that the yen would weaken to levels above 115 per dollar.

“Analysts have struggled to explain why the yen is rising,” said the Financial Times in February, especially when the differential between US and Japanese interest rates continues to widen in favour of the dollar.

“I think [the reason for yen strength] is more technical,” said Citi analyst Koichi Kano.
