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

2018 has been a good year for the dollar; certainly much better than 2017, in which the world’s reserve currency lost 10 percent of its value on a trade-weighted basis. Entering the third week of October 2018, the dollar stood 3.7 percent higher than its level on January 1st.

Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for the dollar approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, against a basket of currencies, the dollar has averaged +1.8 percent monthly returns in November and +0.15 percent in December. Per seasonal tendencies, the dollar will do best against the Australian dollar, euro and most of all against the yen.

In September, Citibank said of the dollar’s 6-12-month outlook that 3-4 percent upside was likely, followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term.

Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on the dollar. ING isn't ruling out interventions and jawboning from Washington aimed at weakening the dollar. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.

Euro (EUR) - Market news and forecasts

The euro fell on October-8, the day of this report, to 7-week and 3 ½-month lows against the dollar and pound respectively. It was strong against the Antipodes, however — it struck a 3-year high against the New Zealand dollar. Exchange rates at the time of writing were $1.146, £0.878 and N$1.793.

Eurozone monetary policy has been dull since the ECB signalled in June it would leave interest rates unchanged until the latter stages of 2019, which has left Brexit, Italian politics and a Turkish lira currency crisis to drive euro FX rates in recent months.

Recent weakness versus the dollar reflects changes in the outlook for US inflation and interest rates (now expected higher), and against the pound, reflects a growing estimation that the UK and EU will strike a deal on Brexit (the euro rises strongly against the pound whenever the likelihood of “no deal” is increased).

In October, ING forecast EUR/USD 9-13 percent higher by the middle of 2019, at rates between $1.25 and $1.30. ING’s principal reason for euro optimism related to monetary policy: in 2019, the bank believes the market will begin to price in interest rate hikes that will come in the fourth quarter.

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.
