    As predicted, the AUD’s traditional vulnerability to risk has left it exposed to a broader correction in late September.

    CBA have lowered their forecast for the Aussie to fall to US62¢ by December as the slow down in the Chinese economy hits the price of many of Australia’s key commodity exports.

    How to get a good AUD to USD Exchange Rate

    There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

    Reduce Excessive costs and fees

    Generally speaking, if you are buying US dollar with Australian dollar, then it's good for the AUD/USD exchange rate to be higher.

    However working against you are the fees all foreign exchange providers charge for providing their service. These fees is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

    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.

    You can also read our practical guide to getting the Best Deals for your Foreign Transfers and Travel Money to the United States.

     

    Will the Australian dollar rise against the US dollar?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add AUD/USD to your BestExchangeRates My Rates Watchlist to track and benefit from currency movements.
