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 comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.


Currency News, Research and Forecasts for United States Dollar and Euro

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the USD vs EUR, you should pay attention to both United States Dollar and Euro news and forecasts.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

The US dollar is thriving in 2018. The world’s reserve currency had a dismal 2017, during which it shed 10 percent of its value. The Dollar Index’s move to a 1-year high of 96.30 in mid-August reclaimed around 40 percent of last year’s losses.

The dollar is the second-best performing major this year, bettered only by the Japanese yen. As safe havens, both currencies have been sought by investors – they are deemed the least risky among major international currencies. Investors have become more risk averse in recent months following chaos in emerging markets, led by Turkey and Argentina, and Washington’s massive tariffs on imported goods, which threaten global trade. More cause for dollar optimism came in August when data showed US core inflation at a 10-year high.

Dollar strength has pushed EUR/USD below 1.15 for the first time in a year, GBP/USD into the 1.27s, USD/CHF towards parity, and NZD/USD hurtles towards 0.65.

In August, SEB was forecasting end-of-September rates of: EUR/USD, 1.1; GBP/USD, 1.22; AUD/USD, 0.72.

Euro (EUR) - Market news and forecasts

The euro slumped to a 1-year low of 1.1411 USD on August 10th on the back of broad US dollar strength, uncertainty over Brexit (a “no-deal” divorce with the UK is now seen as most likely) and a Turkish lira currency crisis (traders fear contagion due to European banks’ heavy exposures to Turkish borrowers).

Versus the yen, the euro fell to 126.4, above 2018’s low of 124.6 but well down on February’s high of 137.5.

Versus the pound, the euro has spent much of the last 11 months trading between 0.87 and 0.9; it fetched 0.893 pounds at the time of this report.

An important development for the euro came in June, when the ECB signalled it would leave interest rates unchanged at 0.0 percent until the latter stages of 2019. Goldman Sachs described the announcement as a “material negative for the euro.”

Citibank is forecasting little change in the euro over a 6-12-month time horizon; it’s going with 1.19 versus the dollar and 0.89 versus the pound. SEB are more confident in the euro’s prospects; they offer end-of-September forecasts of 1.1 and 0.9 versus the dollar and pound respectively.

Why can't I just get the same USD/EUR market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The USD/EUR mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google 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 USD / EUR was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.


When you look up the current United States Dollar to Euro exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

Getting a great USD to EUR mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.

You can use our USD to EUR currency converter to calculate equivalent amounts in each currency using the latest mid-market exchange rates. Then choose your transaction type for specific United States Dollar cross rates and reviews of leading foreign exchange providers versus the Banks.
