INR and CNY in the Markets

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


Indian Rupee (INR)

The rupee is doing remarkably well in what is normally a seasonally weak time of year and despite a 35 percent rise in the oil price this year (oil is India's largest import).

In early May, by the narrowest of margins, the rupee reached a 16-month high against the Australian dollar (₹48.4), before falling back slightly. It rose towards long-term highs against the euro (₹77.3) and was flat on the year against the US dollar (₹69.2), although it was 8 percent higher against the greenback than it had been in October of last year.

Chinese Yuan (CNY)

In early August the offshore yuan surged to a decade high of 7.05 per US dollar, breaking the symbolic and closely watched USD/CNY = 7.0 exchange rate, after the trade war flared up again and the US labelled China a "currency manipulator".

Increasingly, the yuan is being used as a barometer for progress made on US-China trade talks.

Trade tensions have ramped up again since May when President Trump announced higher tariffs on Chinese goods, after China retaliated with tariffs of its own, and then after Trump placed Huawei on the "entity list," thereby making it impossible for the tech giant to do business with US firms.

Why can't I just get the INR/CNY 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 INR / CNY 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.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
