Why can't I just get the CAD/GBP market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The CAD/GBP mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google 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 CAD / GBP 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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market CAD/GBP midrate the better deal you are getting.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

Currency news and forecasts for Canadian Dollar and British Pound Sterling

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the CAD vs GBP, you should pay attention to both Canadian Dollar and British Pound Sterling news and forecasts.

Canadian Dollar (CAD) - Market news and forecasts

In the March-April period (to April-20), the Canadian dollar traded mostly sideways relative to USD, between C$1.33 and C$1.34; it was stable against EUR, at C$1.50, but against AUD it neared 15-week lows, at C$0.957.

Unlike other oil-sensitive currencies, the Canadian dollar has failed to take advantage of a thriving oil market, with the market’s attention instead turned towards the global economic slowdown and the Canadian housing market, which, according to the IMF, is now as risky as it was during the 2007-08 financial crisis.

Forecasters at RBC expect further sideways price action until mid-year, after which the loonie probably weakens modestly towards C$1.36 to the USD by year-end. 

CIBC is also predicting C$1.36 per USD in December, and sees further weakness to C$1.40 sometime in 2020 C$1.40 is an exchange rate last seen in February 2016.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

Update 14-April: The pound hovered between US$1.30 and US$1.31 (in line with 3-month averages) after the EU granted the UK a Brexit extension until the end of October. No-deal risk is gone for now and anything is possible, including a new British prime minister, a general election and/or second referendum.

Experts at MUFG said in April that sterling would likely trade between US$1.30 and US$1.34 until more clarity emerged.

If an election is called, the pound could depreciate to US$1.24, a UBS analyst said, due to “heightened uncertainty” (the opposition Labour party is consistently ahead in the polls).

Goldman Sachs said in April that sterling was set for a “big finish” (higher) once the gridlock in the UK parliament ends and a deal is agreed and certainty found.

Earlier this year, currency analysts at HSBC estimated that the pound would be valued at levels near US$1.10 in the event of no-deal, near US$1.45 with a deal and at US$1.55 if Brexit is cancelled.
