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

The USD/IDR 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 / IDR 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/IDR 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.

Currency news and forecasts for United States Dollar and Indonesian Rupiah

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 IDR, you should pay attention to both United States Dollar and Indonesian Rupiah news and forecasts.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

26-January-19: 2018 was a reasonable year for the dollar. Measured by the US Dollar Index, the greenback appreciated by 4 percent, which was much better than 2017’s 10 percent loss. It was, though, something of a stuttering end to 2018 and the dollar has had mixed fortunes in early 2019.

In December, after lifting US interest rates to 2.25-2.5 percent, the Fed lowered its expectations for future hikes due to so-called “cross currents” (China, Brexit, trade wars etc.). Skepticism among analysts over future Fed hikes has for some time been the main reason for dollar pessimism for 2019, but now, there is also the prospect of a US economic slowdown to contend with.

“A slowdown in the economy is likely to weigh on USD particularly in the second half of this year,” a CIBC researcher said in January.

Of the same opinion was an expert at ING, who argued that the dollar is soon to “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend.”

January’s extended US government shutdown also has dollar-negative ramifications. Not only is the shutdown likely to hit first-quarter GDP growth, disagreements within Congress bode poorly for the future of potentially inflationary fiscal spending.

Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) - Market news and forecasts

In 2018 the rupiah shed 6 percent of its value against the US dollar (Rp.14,479), 2 percent against the euro (Rp.16,579) and 1 percent versus the pound (Rp.18,446). It did, however, manage to gain nearly 4 percent against a struggling Australian dollar (Rp.10,212).

Among factors contributing to rupiah weakness in 2018 was the mid-year emerging market currency crisis and a US-China trade war, as well as the firmer US dollar and higher US interest rates, which makes Indonesia’s foreign loan repayments more expensive and risk-adjusted rupiah returns less attractive.

The Indonesian central bank raised interest rates several times in 2018 in an attempt to curb currency weakness but this only proved effective in the final two months of the year, during which the rupiah gained 5 percent against the US dollar.

In mid-December, ANZ’s Head of Asia Research advised making bets on rupiah appreciation for 2019; he described this as one of his “top trades” for the year. The rupiah will be strongly supported, especially in the second half of the year, once the Fed begins to slow down or pause on interest rates hikes, he said.
