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 comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Japanese Yen and Chinese Yuan

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 JPY vs CNY, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and Chinese Yuan news and forecasts.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

The yen has fallen steadily against the US dollar since March. By October 1st, the day of this report, it had reached a ten-month low of ¥114, mainly as monetary policies in the US and Japan continue to diverge. The yen also fell to an eight-month low versus the trade deal-boosted Canadian dollar (¥89.17) but was largely unchanged in the March-September period against other major currencies.

With Japanese monetary policy remaining dull and extremely loose (Japan continues to pursue inflation via extremely low interest rates), the source of yen upside for the remainder of 2018 is likely to be restricted to possible event risk, which might come in the form of a no-deal Brexit, negative political developments in Italy or heightened trade tensions between the US and China.

In October, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stands in an LDP leadership contest. Should Abe fail in his bid to secure a third term as leader (highly unlikely), the yen would gain on speculation of a change in economic policies.

In October, Citibank offered 6-12-month yen forecasts of ¥114 to the US dollar, unchanged on its rate at the time of writing, and ¥128 to the euro—¥131.3 as of writing.

Chinese Yuan (CNY) - Market news and forecasts

The Chinese yuan struck a 21-month low against the dollar in October, at 6.941.

A move to and perhaps through 7.0 to the dollar, which remains a symbolic level for many, is likely within the next nine months, according to FX traders polled by Bloomberg in mid-October. 7.0 hasn’t been seen since 2008.

A number of important economic developments in 2018 have worked to reduce demand for Chinese goods and investments, and therefore for the yuan.

Chief among these developments is US trade protectionism. Massive tariffs make Chinese goods more expensive to American buyers, which lessens their appeal and necessitates a weaker yuan.

A tumbling Chinese stock market isn’t helping either. While US stocks were slightly higher on the year at the time of this report (October-19), the Shanghai Composite index was down a massive 25 percent! Investors, therefore, no longer want to buy into Chinese companies and have one less reason to exchange local currency into yuan.

Also weighing on the yuan in October was official third-quarter data, which showed Chinese GDP growth at a nine-year low of 6.5 percent.
