Australian Dollar - US Dollar Forecasting

National Australia Bank (NAB) have revised upwards their Aussie dollar forecasts now expecting the AUD/USD rate at US80c by June 2022, up from their previous forecast of US75c.

While Westpac see the AU dollar hitting US80c 6 months earlier by the end of 2021.

For 2020, NAB sees the Australian dollar at US74c by year-end, up from a predicted US72c.

The Australian dollar climbed to 73 US cents in August, the highest level since December 2018, amid broad-based US dollar softness. Investor risk appetite, aided by the strength of the US stock market and positive US-China trade talks, has allowed the commodity currency to increase its gains. Commodity prices and a stronger Chinese yuan also supported the Australian dollar in August. Any news that will fuel optimism of a global economic rebound once the pandemic is under control is likely to underpin positive sentiment and help the AUD to rally. Having broken 72 US cents, the door is now open for the AUD to push toward 75 US cents in the coming months.  September Currency Update

How to get Best USD to AUD 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.
