    Into October, broader risk sentiment is driving direction for commodity currencies like the loonie. If the global equity volatility eases, we could see domestic data take the front seat in driving the currency direction.

    OFX predict the USDCAD pair could trade between 1.24 – 1.29 CAD in October.

    How to get a good CAD to USD Exchange Rate

    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.


    Will the Canadian dollar rise against the US dollar?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add CAD/USD to your BestExchangeRates My Rates Watchlist to track and benefit from currency movements.
