    Citibank Bank analysts predict the Korean won will perform well against the US dollar in 2021, possibly reaching 6 year highs.

    The won is one of those currencies being used as a proxy for risk, particularly for risks relating to US-China trade.

    Bank of America Merrill Lynch predicted a reversal in won weakness. It said that it was “just a matter of time” before investors again focused on South Korea’s strong fundamentals.

    The South Korean won was the worst-performing Asian currency in 2019.

    How to get a good USD to KRW Exchange Rate

    There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

    Reduce Excessive costs and fees

    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.

     

    Will the US dollar rise against the South Korean won?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add USD/KRW to your BestExchangeRates My Rates Watchlist to track and benefit from currency movements.

    Rather than requiring you to set a target rate, our FX Alerts work differently.

    Once you add a currency pair for tracking in your watchlist we can select to be notified daily for any UP DOWN HIGH LOW alerts over a range of periods over the recent 90 days.
