The HKD/CAD 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 HKD / CAD 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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market HKD/CAD midrate the better deal you are getting.

Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Hong Kong Dollar and Canadian 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 HKD vs CAD, you should pay attention to both Hong Kong Dollar and Canadian Dollar news and forecasts.

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) - Market news and forecasts

2018 has been a good year for the Hong Kong dollar, as it has been for the US dollar, to which it is pegged.

Entering the third week of November 2018, HKD’s year-to-date gains over six of the seven non-USD majors averaged 5.4 percent. HKD was unchanged against the yen.

At different times in 2018, HKD has benefitted from Brexit uncertainty in Europe, from inactivity on monetary policy in Oceania, and a recent collapse in the oil market, which saw its value rise against petro-currencies.

Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for HKD approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, HKD has averaged trade-weighted gains of 1.8 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December.

By way of its USD forecasts, Citibank said in September that HKD would gain 3-4 percent over a 6-12-month period; however, gains would be followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term.

Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on USD and HKD. ING isn't ruling out interventions from Washington aimed at weakening the greenback. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.

J.P. Morgan said in November that USD and HKD would be worth slightly more in the first half of 2019, before weakening slightly in the second half of the year.

Canadian Dollar (CAD) - Market news and forecasts

5-December-18: In early December, the Canadian dollar traded at C$1.34 per USD — its weakest level in 18 months. It did so after traders revised down their expectations for future Canadian interest rate hikes following a dovish Bank of Canada meeting.

Also not helping the loonie in late 2018 has been the oil price which, by the time of this report, had slumped 30 percent from 2018 highs. Oil is Canada’s largest export.

In December, several FX analysts expressed a belief that inevitable OPEC production cuts will create a rebound in the oil market, which will drive the Canadian dollar higher throughout 2019.

Risks to the Canadian dollar include, of course, oil, and the return of global trade tensions. Tensions eased in early December when US and Chinese leaders agreed to suspend tariff increases for 3 months.

Also in December, Citibank offered a “long-term” (>18 months) forecast for USD/CAD of 1.2, representing potential CAD appreciation of 12 percent.
