Australian Dollar to US Dollar Forecasts

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.

The USD experienced a sell-off in early November as investors moved away from the safe haven of the dollar and into riskier assets, off the back of Biden winning the presidential election and the positive news of COVID-19 vaccine testing. The AUD might break through recent resistance around 0.7340 over the next weeks. A clearcut Biden win and further positive COVID-19 vaccine news could help drive the AUD towards new highs closer to 0.74 US cents.  November Update

How to get Best AUD to USD Exchange Rates

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

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.
