Outlook and forecasts for CHF and ZAR

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 CHF vs ZAR, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Swiss Franc and South African Rand:

 

Swiss Franc (CHF) outlook

The Swiss National Bank continues to reaffirm its commitment to an ultra-loose monetary policy, which includes negative interest rates and a willingness to intervene in FX markets, in an effort to spark inflation in the economy.

The SNB would have been happy, therefore, with the franc’s April slump. In the first 17 trading days of April (to April-23), the franc gained in only 5 against the euro, putting it on course for its worst monthly performance in 2 years. The franc traded at a 6-month low against the euro (Fr1.147) and at a 2-year low against the dollar (Fr1.023).

 

South African Rand (ZAR) outlook

2018 was a grim year for the rand: it lost 14 percent of its value against the US dollar and lost nearly 10 percent against the euro.

Stability returned in the first 5 months of 2019, with no change against the dollar and a 2 percent gain versus the euro.

Talk in May was all about the election, which was again won by the ANC party, led by Cyril Ramaphosa. This spurred a relief rally in the rand, but a serious fall in support for the ANC since 2014 suggests Ramaphosa with struggle implementing much-needed economic reforms.

With the election out of the way, analysts at Deutsche Bank are expecting the rand to weaken throughout the rest of the year.

"We think [rand] optimism will prove short-lived as the market quickly refocuses on deteriorating fundamentals," Deutsche said.

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

The CHF/ZAR 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 CHF / ZAR 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.
