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

The CAD/SGD 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 / SGD 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/SGD 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.

The three things you need in order to get a good CAD to SGD exchange rate

  1. Know the latest CAD/SGD market mid-rate. The closer your final exchange rate is to this real market rate the better deal you are getting. You should also judge how the current rate compares to the historic rate over the past 10 years.
  2. Compare your Bank's transaction costs to several licensed FX providers, remember to compare the exchange rate margins as well as the various types of fees. We make that easy to do with our calculators for Foreign Transfers and Travel Money transactions.
  3. Review up-to-date Currency News and Forecasts for both the and currencies, if available.

Currency news and forecasts for Canadian Dollar and Singapore Dollar

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 SGD, you should pay attention to both Canadian Dollar and Singapore Dollar news and forecasts.

Canadian Dollar (CAD) - Market news and forecasts

A fantastic January that took the Canadian dollar away from long-term lows against the US dollar was followed by a steady February and then a weak first-half of March.

In the first week of March, traders reacted badly to news of Canada’s economy growing at a dismal quarterly rate of just 0.1 percent (the slowest rate of quarterly growth in 2 ½ years), and they sold the loonie to account for a lower probability of future interest rate hikes by Canada’s central bank.

Against the US dollar, the loonie recovered slightly in the second week of March and stabilised at levels near C$1.333 per USD, although another notable exchange rate at the time of writing, GBP/CAD, rose to an 8-month high (CAD low) of C$1.78.

Per researchers at CIBC and TD Securities, fair value in USD/CAD is currently C$1.4, indicating potential CAD depreciation worth 5 percent. A move to C$1.4 would take the loonie to its lowest level against its US cousin since early 2016.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

22-February-2019: 2018 was a steady year for the Singapore dollar: on balance it gained value, but it did lose out slightly against the world’s reserve currency, the US dollar.

2019 has begun reasonably well. Entering the final week of February, SGD was a percent higher year-to-date versus USD, but at US$0.74 was in line with its 2018 average rate. SGD was 2 percent higher year-to-date against EUR at a 9-month closing high of €0.653 — 4 percent higher than 2018’s average.

Against AUD, in February, SGD was unchanged year-to-date but was 4.5 percent higher than last year's average, at A$1.038. During a flash crash on January 3rd, SGD/AUD briefly traded at a 10-year high of A$1.088.

With Singapore being a small, trade-dependent country, prime risks to SGD for 2019 include the re-emergence of trade tensions between China and the US, and/or a serious global economic slowdown.

Traders, though, were happy to bet against the above risks and on SGD appreciation at the time of this report: a Reuters survey in February showed “long” SGD positions among bank traders rising to the highest level in 10 months.
