CAD and JPY in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the CAD vs JPY, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

 

Canadian Dollar (CAD)

It’s been a mixed bag of late for the Canadian dollar, with geopolitical risks, global interest rates and matters affecting global trade, rather than commodities or Canadian economic data, most influencing CAD rates.

In April and May, the loonie lost out slightly (by roughly 1 percent) against the US dollar and euro, but made small progress against the pound and Australian dollar.

For CAD, investors said in early June that they did not like the recent escalation in US-China trade tensions, which threatens the outlook for global trade and for commodities; nor did they like Washington’s announcement in late May of a 5 percent tariff on all Mexican goods — an illegal move under the new NAFTA 2.0 free-trade deal which some suspect might see the deal torn up.

Japanese Yen (JPY)

The yen was the star performer in the weeks leading up to this report (May-17), with appreciation driven by a flight to safety following a serious escalation in the US-China trade war. The benchmark yen rate, USD/JPY, was down in the mid-109s, having been as high as 112.4 in late April. Relatively speaking, against their April highs, other yen rates had fallen even more (NZD/JPY was down from 76 to 71.6).

In May, HSBC warned against thinking that yen-supporting safe-haven flows would soon stop, implying that the yen could have more upside potential in the near term. The bank highlighted the “desolation and destruction” (an exaggeration) present in many major economies and currencies. “You can never get too high,” the bank’s chief analyst said.

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

The mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news. It is actually just the half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the CAD / JPY was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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). Some providers such as Transferwise will quote you the mid-rate (or close to) and charge a separate percentage fee.

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.
