US Dollar - Indonesian Rupiah Forecasting

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the USD vs IDR, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

US Dollar (USD)

Key fundamentals that previously propped up the USD (such as company revenues, inflation rates and interest rates) have been rapidly eroded. However, there are drivers for a temporary shift in risk demand for the US dollar. Nothing goes down in a straight line, and the US dollar might bounce before it continues its trend lower.

The US dollar has dropped steadily for the last 3 months against nearly all major currencies.

However, as reported by Bloomberg Aug 11, the shorting of the US dollar - betting that USD will continue to drop - is becoming a crowded trade and may backfire.

Bank of America predict that an early discovery of a vaccine against the coronavirus would be a positive for the US dollar. That's because Europe and Asia have a higher chance of fresh waves of infections the longer it takes for a vaccine to be found, a scenario that's bullish for the US dollar, read more at the Bloomberg report.

In July market USD forecasts started predicting US dollar weakness during the second half of 2020. This was triggered by the mid-July european leaders delivery a historic stimulus package which was seen by market commentators as positive for the euro and hence negative for US dollar.

In early May the continuing coronavirus pandemic and an associated possible re-escalation in the US-China trade tensions has moved the market into safer currencies such as the USD and JPY.

The US dollar held its value in 2019 despite the US-China trade tensions, mainly because the greenback is still considered a safer currency to own than most others.

Indonesian Rupiah (IDR)

IDR is up over 5% against the US dollar for 2020 (in August) and is gaining favour from bank commentators such as HSBC due to the attraction of the carry trade - the ability to earn higher interest when holding IDR versus other major currencies.

Migrant workers from Asia’s developing countries, such as Indonesia, have been sending home record amounts of money in recent months, defying pandemic expectations and propping up home economies at a critical time.

However, it appears workers are just sending money home in advance of their own return due to a bleak job market, particularly in the Middle East.

 

How to get Best USD to IDR 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.
