GBP and DKK in the Markets

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

 

British Pound Sterling (GBP)

By some margin, the pound was the worst-performing major currency in the second quarter. It slipped in late June to multi-month lows against a number of important currencies, including the Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, euro, Canadian dollar and Swiss franc.

Pound valuations will continue to fluctuate based on No-deal, Deal and Remain probabilities. No-deal prospects may increase if, as is widely expected, ardent Brexiteer Boris Johnson becomes the UK’s next prime minister. However, some banks argue that Johnson’s appointment would make little difference to no-deal or remain probabilities.

The pound is unlikely to receive much in the way of meaningful respite until November, analysts say, when hopefully the UK-EU Brexit arrangement, or lack thereof, is known (Boris Johnson insists that the UK will not seek any further Article 50 extensions beyond the October-31 deadline).

The pound would be doing far worse if it weren't receiving some support from the Bank of England which, surprisingly, is the only major central bank still considering higher interest rates in 2019.

Danish Krone (DKK)

Against the US dollar, the Danish krone struck a 2-year low in May, at kr6.724 per USD, though that mostly reflected the greenback’s broad-based strength.

Like the euro to which it is pegged, against the pound, the krone experienced a record 14-day winning streak in May, and at the time of writing it remained near 4-month highs, at kr8.47.

In May, currency forecasts from Deutsche Bank implied more krone depreciation. The bank thinks USD/DKK could exceed kr6.8 over the summer, with key drivers being the US-China trade war, Brexit and Italian risks.

Also in May, Lloyds’ revised forecasts implied GBP/DKK rates near kr8.8 at year-end, though that could be much lower if Theresa May is replaced as UK PM by a hardline Brexiteer.

Why can't I just get the GBP/DKK 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 GBP / DKK 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.
