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.


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 must always be quoted in comparison to a second 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 has struggled in 2018 but its prospects for 2019 remain good.

In the second half of September, the Aussie recovered slightly from long-term lows against the euro, yen, Swiss franc and US dollar. It did, however, slump by October 2nd (the day of this report) to a three-year low versus the Canadian dollar.

Keeping the Aussie on the backfoot this year have been matters of monetary policy. A decision in August by Australian commercial banks to raise lending rates reduced the need for the RBA to raise the nation’s benchmark rate. It is the benchmark rate, not commercial lending rates, that affect the Australian dollar’s value, and this is now unlikely to be increased earlier than 2020.

Inaction on monetary policy lends itself to lower AUD exchange rates (the Aussie bought only 71.9 US cents and 62.5 euro cents at the time of writing) but this will change next year. The inevitability of higher Australian interest rates will become the narrative in mid-2019, thinks Citibank, and this will drive capital into AUD and force its price up to 77 US cents.

An even stronger bullish view was expressed in September by UBS, which predicted a rise in AUD to 82 US cents by the end of 2019. The Swiss bank said that other hinderances to AUD, such as emerging market FX volatility and US-China trade tensions, would dissipate.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

The yen has fallen steadily against the US dollar since March. By October 1st, the day of this report, it had reached a ten-month low of ¥114, mainly as monetary policies in the US and Japan continue to diverge. The yen also fell to an eight-month low versus the trade deal-boosted Canadian dollar (¥89.17) but was largely unchanged in the March-September period against other major currencies.

With Japanese monetary policy remaining dull and extremely loose (Japan continues to pursue inflation via extremely low interest rates), the source of yen upside for the remainder of 2018 is likely to be restricted to possible event risk, which might come in the form of a no-deal Brexit, negative political developments in Italy or heightened trade tensions between the US and China.

In October, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stands in an LDP leadership contest. Should Abe fail in his bid to secure a third term as leader (highly unlikely), the yen would gain on speculation of a change in economic policies.

In October, Citibank offered 6-12-month yen forecasts of ¥114 to the US dollar, unchanged on its rate at the time of writing, and ¥128 to the euro—¥131.3 as of writing.

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

The AUD/JPY 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 / JPY was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.


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.

Getting a great AUD to JPY 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 JPY 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.
