US Dollar and Norwegian Krone - Market News


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


US Dollar (USD)

Most banks and forecasters expect the down trend for USD to continue, along with an increase in volatility, with some predictions of a 20 per cent or more fall for the greenback in 2021.

Get more details in the article US Dollar Forecasts.


Norwegian Krone (NOK)

Sentiment on the krone improved drastically in June after Norway’s central bank raised interest rates and signalled further hikes this year, thereby bucking the trend for lower-rates globally.

Prior to this, against the US dollar, the krone had tested the massive 8.8 per USD level, a break of which would have had the krone at its weakest level in 3 years. The greenback was back buying 8.5 krone at the time of this report.

Late last year, against the euro, the krone struck a 10-year low of 10.057 per EUR; it has since recovered to levels near 9.65.

Danske Bank said following June’s meeting of the Norges Bank that it favoured more krone strength in the third quarter.


How to get Good USD to NOK Exchange Rates

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.
