HKD and LKR in the Markets

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

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD)

The Hong Kong dollar has gained value in 2019 despite the recent protests and also 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.

Sri Lankan Rupee (LKR)

As of September 2018, Sri Lanka is at the top of a list of seven emerging market countries that are most likely to join nations such as Turkey and Argentina in a currency crisis according to the investment bank Nomura. "Sri Lanka is at risk of a crisis erupting at any time," the economists noted.

"With foreign exchange reserves of less than five months of import cover and high short-term external debt of around $US7.5 billion, its refinancing needs are large. Political stability also remains an issue."

How to get Best HKD to LKR Exchange Rates

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).

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.
