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.

AUD to JPY mid-rate on google search

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.


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 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.

Japanese yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

A loss in April of nearly 3 percent relative to the dollar marked the yen’s worst monthly performance since November 2016. But even with that said, approaching the end of May, the yen was the best performing G10 currency of the year. USD/JPY traded in the mid-109s and EUR/JPY in the mid-127s.

Factors affecting the yen’s value in May included political instability in Europe (supportive of the yen), the recoupling of the dollar with US interest rate expectations (negative for the yen versus the dollar), and the announcement by Washington that it would be scrutinizing automobile imports, which is to say the return of global trade tensions (supportive of the yen).

The medium-term outlook for the yen is good, says Citibank, based on the potential in Japan for normalization of monetary policy. Citibank is forecasting a USD/JPY rate of 105 within 6-12 months.
