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

The USD/HKD 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 / HKD was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market USD/HKD midrate the better deal you are getting.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

The three things you need in order to get a good USD to HKD exchange rate

  1. Know the latest USD/HKD market mid-rate. The closer your final exchange rate is to this real market rate the better deal you are getting. You should also judge how the current rate compares to the historic rate over the past 10 years.
  2. Compare your Bank's transaction costs to several licensed FX providers, remember to compare the exchange rate margins as well as the various types of fees. We make that easy to do with our calculators for Foreign Transfers and Travel Money transactions.
  3. Review up-to-date Currency News and Forecasts for both the and currencies, if available.

Currency news and forecasts for United States Dollar and Hong Kong Dollar

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

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

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

In the third week of April the Dollar Index was rallying strongly towards the mid-97s, slightly below major resistance at 97.70, a break of which would be massively positive for the greenback. The index was up 1.7 percent year-to-date.

The dollar’s strength comes in spite of a dovish surprise in March from the Federal Reserve, which ditched two interest rate hikes from its 2019 projections. Fortunately for dollar holders, the rest of the world has problems and other important central banks also turned dovish, removing much of the incentive for selling USD.

Bloomberg research warned in April of potential for a large upcoming move in the US dollar, up or down. Over the past quarter-century, three prominent troughs in the JPMorgan Global FX Volatility Index were followed by dollar moves over 6-month periods worth 10-15 percent. The index was trading in mid-April at a 5-year low.

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) - Market news and forecasts

Against USD, the Hong Kong dollar continues to trade along the weaker boundary of its allowed trading range, at HK$7.85.

Against other major currencies, the Hong Kong dollar quickly recovered from a sharp sell-off on March-20 when the US Federal Reserve (whose actions on monetary policy Hong Kong’s central bank must follow) slashed two interest rate hikes from its 2019 projections.

Medium-term, against a basket of currencies, HKD remains at elevated levels (roughly 10 percent above 2018 lows). Long-term, HKD is trading more or less in the centre of its 2017-2018 range.

Earlier this year, ING said that the US dollar, and therefore HKD, would soon “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend”; CIBC said something similar.
