    USD - AUD - Forecasts & News

    The Australian Dollar finished lower against the Greenback and had some volatile sessions during the week. AUD-USD Forecasts

    Until the recent Fed Reserve pivot, the Australian dollar had benefited from the US dollar sell-off since late last year as investors moved away from the safe haven of the USD and into riskier assets. AUD Forecasts

    Last week saw the US Dollar slowly but surely grind its way higher against all its Rivals. USD Forecasts

     
         
     

    How to get a good USD to AUD Exchange Rate

    There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

    Reduce Excessive costs and fees

    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.

     
     

    What is a good USD to AUD exchange rate?

    This is always a difficult question as exchange rates are influenced by many factors, so a good method to consider the US dollar vs Australian dollar current value is to look the USD/AUD historic rate and change over a range of periods.

    The following table looks at the change in the USD to AUD exchange rate over periods from the previous week back to the last 10 years.

    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 BestExchangeRates My Rates Watchlist to track and benefit from currency movements.

    Rather than requiring you to set a target rate, our FX Alerts work differently.

    Once you add a currency pair for tracking in your watchlist we can select to be notified daily for any UP DOWN HIGH LOW alerts over a range of periods over the recent 90 days.
