Outlook and forecasts for GBP and HKD

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 GBP vs HKD, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both British Pound Sterling and Hong Kong Dollar:

 

British Pound Sterling (GBP) outlook

The pound ended a record-setting 14-day losing streak against the euro on May-24, but it was still near multi-month lows at €1.135. The end of GBP selling was attributed by some to the announcement of Theresa May’s resignation (effective June-7); however, this is more likely a coincidence, with profit-taking almost certainly the real cause of GBP relief.

A similar period of harm for GBP/USD took the pair to $1.27 — near a 4-month low.

Sterling weakness has returned following a breakdown in cross-party Brexit talks and a backlash against Theresa May’s “last chance” offer to British MPs — a fourth vote in June on her withdrawal deal which, if passed, will be followed by a legally-binding vote on a second referendum, plus some further, minor enhancements to the deal.

A fourth defeat for May’s plan is widely expected and would make no-deal much more realistic, especially since she is likely to be replaced by a Brexit-supporting Conservative (Leave-voting Boris Johnson is the firm favourite). The new leader could endorse no-deal and that would be disastrous for the pound.

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) outlook

The Hong Kong dollar has gained value in 2019 despite a serious escalation in US-China trade tensions, mainly because the US dollar, to which HKD is pegged, is attracting safe-haven inflows. By May-17, against a basket of important currencies, HKD was worth 2 percent more year-to-date, and was only 0.5 percent away from making a 2-year high.

HKD was doing particularly well against the Australian dollar. It was, at the time of writing, valued 18 percent higher than 2018 lows against AUD and needed only a further 2.3 percent to reach a 10-year high. Though HKD was meeting significant resistance in mid-May at the 5.4 per AUD level, a break of this could spark significant appreciation.

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

The GBP/HKD 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 GBP / HKD 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.
