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

The GBP/AUD 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 GBP / AUD 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.

Currency News, Research and Forecasts for British Pound Sterling and Australian Dollar

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

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

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

In late November, the Bank of England offered a stark warning on no-deal Brexit outcomes.

In the event of a “disorderly” no-deal Brexit, under which there will be serious border delays and a marked loss of confidence in Britain’s financial institutions, the BoE predicts a significant decrease in the size of the UK economy and a rather shocking 25 percent loss in the British pound’s value.

In the milder, more likely event of a “disruptive” no-deal Brexit, under which goods face tariffs but flow somewhat easily, sterling still loses 15 percent, the BoE believes.

These are some of the most alarmist currency forecasts of recent years and holders of sterling will therefore hope for a UK-EU agreement before the March-29 exit date.

In late-November, GBP/USD continued to trade in the lower third of its 1.27-1.32 range, which contained much of the price action since mid-July. GBP/EUR slipped into the middle of its 2018 range, at 1.123, and GBP/NZD weakened to a 13-month low of 1.8572.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

November-26: In the weeks leading up to this report, the Australian dollar was among the best performing global currencies. A broader 2018 view will, though, show a currency that is struggling. The good news is that the Aussie’s prospects for 2019 remain good.

Important for AUD in November was the break of an important technical trendline that demarcated the 2018 downtrend. Between January and late October, the currency lost nearly 14 percent against the US dollar to trade at a 2-1/2-year low of $0.702. It had recovered by the time of this report into the $0.72s. Similar could be said of AUD’s performance against the euro.

Easing trade tensions between the US and China was another big positive for AUD in November.

Inaction on interest rates from the RBA has lended itself to lower AUD exchange rates but this will change next year. The inevitability of higher Australian interest rates will become the narrative in mid-2019, thinks Citibank, and this will drive capital into AUD and force its price up to $0.77. CIBC expressed a similar view in November, albeit with a slightly lower mid-19 forecast of $0.76.
