AUD and MXN in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the AUD vs MXN, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Australian Dollar (AUD)

The threat of proxy war between the US and Iran in Iraq has pared back some of the gains the Aussie had made coming into the New Year.

The Australian dollar had started the new decade strongly climbing to multi-month highs helped along by cooling trade tensions between the United States and China and optimism for global economic growth in the year ahead.

The Aussie broke back over US70 cents on the final day of 2019 — a level not seen since mid year. During December the Australian dollar reversed direction (again) and climbed steadily back up against the US dollar on the back of the strength of the housing market and a market perception that further interest rate cuts were less likely. In November it had been all downhill traffic for the Aussie dropping back from highs close to 70c at the beginning of the month to around 67c against the USD by month end.

At the end of October the AUD had surged to a three month high against the US dollar following the third rate cut in a year by the US Federal Reserve. The gains were mainly due to the fall in the US dollar after the market sensed that US rates are more likely to rise now than fall further.

The RBA also added to the positive sentiment with an optimistic assessment of easing risks from the US-China trade war and Brexit. Accordingly markets are pulling back from bets that the cash rate will drop to 0.5 per cent and the possible start of quantitative easing.

Interestingly, AUD has decoupled from commodity prices in 2019. The price of iron ore (Australia’s largest export) nears multi-year highs while AUD languishes.

Further RBA interest rate cuts this year are now a certainty, and that doesn’t bode well for currency valuations.

Mexican Peso (MXN)

At 18.8 per US dollar, the Mexican peso was trading on April-20 close to its strongest level in 6 ½ months, though it was meeting significant resistance (USD/MXN support) at 18.75—a level from which the peso was repelled twice last October, in March, and once already in April.

Boosting the peso has been the thriving oil market. Oil is high on the list of Mexico’s top exports and by April-20 it was up 44 percent for the year to $65 per barrel.

Also supporting the peso has been the dovish turn by the Federal Reserve. With no increase in US interest rates projected this year, the dollar will weaken and the peso should gain value because Mexico holds high levels of dollar-denominated debt, which becomes easier to repay when dollars are cheap and US rates are low.

Earlier this year, ING said that the peso would be among 2019’s best performing emerging market currencies, though newly-formed BlueLine Asset Management said one if its first market bets would be on peso depreciation based on disappointing economic growth.

Why can't I just get the AUD/MXN market rate I see online or in the media?

The mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news. It is actually just the half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the AUD / MXN was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate). Some providers such as Transferwise will quote you the mid-rate (or close to) and charge a separate percentage fee.

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 foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
