Comparing Foreign Exchange Providers

The total cost you are charged by your foreign exchange provider consists of the margin from the mid-rate offered plus any fixed or percentage fees. These margins and fees vary significantly for International Money Transfers, Travel Money and prepaid multi-currency Travel Card transactions.

The Exchange rate you are offered can also vary significantly depending on the transaction type (transfer, cash or card), currency pair and amount.

Malaysian Ringgit and South Korean Won Forecasts

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

Malaysian Ringgit (MYR)

Malaysia was added to a US watchlist of suspected currency manipulators in May. Though that means little right now in terms of economic implications, it added to negative sentiment, which then spurred a rise in USD/MYR to a 6-month high (MYR low) of RM4.2.

Among factors contributing to the ringgit’s weakness over the past year has been political uncertainty relating to Malaysia’s ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition, late-2018’s crash in oil prices, global trade tensions and higher US interest rates.

South Korean Won (KRW)

The South Korean won has been the worst-performing Asian currency in 2019.

In the first five months of the year, the won lost 6 percent of its value against the dollar on its way to a 2-year low of ₩1,190, and lost 4 percent against the euro, with weakness driven by falling exports and an alarming drop in South Korean inflation, both of which drove expectations for an interest rate cut by the Bank of Korea. In addition, the won is one of those currencies being used as a proxy for risk, particularly for risks relating to US-China trade.

The Bank of Korea has warned traders that it will intervene in markets to prop up the won should the rate of currency depreciation accelerate, though interventions will be “mild.”

In late May, Bank of America Merrill Lynch predicted a reversal in won weakness. It said that it was “just a matter of time” before investors again focused on South Korea’s strong fundamentals. The bank expects USD/KRW to fall 7 percent in the second half of the year to ₩1,110.

How to get Best MYR to KRW 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.
