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.

3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Australian dollar and Mexican peso

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 MXN, you should pay attention to both Australian dollar and Mexican peso 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.

Mexican peso (MXN) - Market news and forecasts

Entering 2018, all analysts polled by Bloomberg predicted a stronger peso, with most year-end forecasts lying between 17 and 18 pesos per dollar. The peso followed the plan between January and mid-April, strengthening from 19.6 to 18, but since then, the peso has fallen sharply. By mid-May – the time of this report – the peso had fallen back through its 2018 opening price to a one-year low of 19.93. The peso is likely to be supported, at least in the short-term, should the USD/MXN exchange rate reach 20.0 – this being a psychologically important level for investors.

Additionally, the euro is still buying more than 23 pesos; the peso thus continues to trade at historically weak levels versus the single currency.

Factors driving the peso lower in 2018 will include political uncertainty ahead of this summer’s election, uncertainty over NAFTA negotiations, higher US interest rates and the emergence of a currency crisis in Argentina, which has unnerved investors in emerging markets.

Supporting the peso this year will be monetary policy, with the probability of further interest rate hikes remaining high; and oil, which climbed in May to long-term highs above $70 per barrel.
