Outlook and forecasts for BRL and CAD

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the BRL vs CAD, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Brazilian Real and Canadian Dollar:


Brazilian Real (BRL) outlook

2018 was a disappointing year for the Brazilian real: it lost 15 percent of its value against the US dollar and more than 10 percent against the euro.

The real started 2019 brightly: by early February, it held a year-to-date gain worth 7 percent against the dollar. Throughout February and into March, the real weakened somewhat, but then on March-22 (the day of this report), it plunged on news that former Brazilian president Michel Temer had been arrested on corruption charges — an arrest that might impede the pension reforms that analysts say are vital to Brazil’s economic recovery. A one-day fall of 3 percent following the arrest had the real down on the year, at R$3.9 per USD. A push back towards the R$4.0 handle, last seen in September, is now likely.

In March, Brazil’s central bank adopted a dovish tone and lowered its forecast for average interest rates, further burdening the real.

Despite these issues, one analyst said that he was putting capital into the real because of the “textbook” nature of the current environment, which favoured carry trades and the high-yielding currencies upon which these are based, like the real.


Canadian Dollar (CAD) outlook

The Canadian dollar got a boost in the first half of May when jobs growth of 106,000 (for the month of April) was the best in 40 years. This drove the loonie away from multi-month lows near US$0.74 to US$0.746.

Other notable exchange rates in May included CAD/NZD, which rose to a 6-month high of NZ$1.13.

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

The BRL/CAD mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the BRL / CAD was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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.
