Australian Dollar - US Dollar Forecasting

National Australia Bank (NAB) have revised upwards their Aussie dollar forecasts now expecting the AUD/USD rate at US80c by June 2022, up from their previous forecast of US75c.

While Westpac see the AU dollar hitting US80c 6 months earlier by the end of 2021.

For 2020, NAB sees the Australian dollar at US74c by year-end, up from a predicted US72c.

In September, after breaking 0.74 US cents, the AUD fell against most of the major currencies. The potential second wave of COVID-19 is dampening expectations for global growth and US election uncertainty is driving risk-off sentiment, which does not benefit the AUD. While the focus remains with the underlying risk narrative a shift in key economic data sets is also weighing on the currency. Recent Consumer Price Index data came in below market expectations and the domestic growth outlook has flattened following Victoria’s second wave lockdown, raising expectations monetary policy will ease before the end of the year. Should the RBA cut rates and the market appetite for risk continue to sour, the AUD could be trading between 0.68 and 0.70 US cents in the short-term. October Update

How to get Best AUD to USD Exchange Rates

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).

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.
