Outlook and forecasts for PLN and ZAR

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the PLN vs ZAR, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Polish Zloty and South African Rand:


Polish Zloty (PLN) outlook

No recent Polish Zloty market updates.


South African Rand (ZAR) outlook

2018 was a grim year for the rand: it lost 14 percent of its value against the US dollar and lost nearly 10 percent against the euro.

The rand started 2019 with a bang but began to falter in the latter stages of January after the South African Reserve Bank pointed to significant improvements in the inflation outlook and indicated that this meant it had less of an incentive to raise interest rates. The SARB predicted only one further increase in rates between now and the end of 2021, down from a predicted three increases in November.

At the time of writing (March-23), at an exchange rate of R14.5 per USD, the rand was bang in the centre of its September-January uptrend against the dollar, and similar could be said versus the euro (R16.4 per EUR).

This May’s general election might add some currency uncertainty given the divisions within South Africa's ruling ANC party but once the election dust has settled the rand will have benefitted, thinks a Standard Bank analyst, due to the “much-needed policy reforms” that the election will facilitate.

Why can't I just get the PLN/ZAR market rate I see online or in the media?

The PLN/ZAR mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online 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 PLN / ZAR 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.

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