    USD/AUD Forecasts

    As per recent FX analyst forecasts and the 3-month price data, the outlook for USD to AUD in the upcoming months appears to be influenced by key drivers such as February's strong US Jobs Report, sluggish global GDP growth, China's improved economy, and the historic UBS-Credit Suisse deal. These factors have the potential to impact investor risk sentiment and FX markets in March.

    Over the past three months, USD to AUD has been trading 2.3% above its average at 1.4975, with fluctuations ranging between 1.3984 and 1.5193. Factors such as demand for commodities, construction activities, and Chinese market developments can significantly impact the Australian dollar's value, as it serves as a major commodities exporter. Additionally, both AUD and NZD often move in the same direction due to geographical proximity and reliance on commodity markets.

    Considering these factors, monitoring key economic indicators, and the impact of the ongoing global financial landscape, USD to AUD may experience notable fluctuations in the near term. It is essential for individuals and businesses dealing with international transactions to keep a close eye on these developments, and currency-pair trends, to make well-informed decisions.

    How to get a good USD to AUD exchange rate

    There are several ways to save on exchange rates when converting US dollar to Australian dollar:

    1. Shop around for the best USD/AUD exchange rate: Exchange rates can vary significantly between different currency exchange providers, so it's important to compare rates from different sources before making a conversion.
    2. Timing is important: Keep an eye on the USD/AUD rate on currency markets, as exchange rates can fluctuate frequently. Try to make your transactions when the exchange rate is in your favor. You can do this easily with our BER Smart Rate Tracker.
    3. Use a credit/debit or travel card that doesn't charge foreign transaction fees: Some credit cards charge additional fees for transactions made in a foreign currency, so it's important to check with your card issuer to see if they charge these fees and what their exchange rate is.
    4. Use a multi-currency account: Having a multi-currency account allows you to hold and transfer money in both USD and AUD at close to the interbank rate. It also allows you to make payments or withdrawals in the local currency while avoiding high conversion fees.
    5. Buy currency in advance: If you know that you will need foreign currency in the future, consider buying it in advance when the exchange rate is favorable.

    The key is reducing excessive costs and fees

    Generally speaking, if you are buying Australian dollar with US dollar, then it's better for the USD/AUD exchange rate to be higher.

    However working against you are the fees all foreign exchange providers charge for providing their service. These fees 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.

    It's worth noting that while these tips can help you save on exchange rates, it's important to be aware that no single method is guaranteed to provide the best exchange rate in every situation, and it may require some research and comparison-shopping to find the best option for your specific needs.

    Will the US dollar rise against the Australian dollar?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add USD/AUD to your personalised BER Smart Rate Tracker to track and benefit from currency movements.
