US Dollar and Swedish Krona - Market News


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


US Dollar (USD)

The US dollar has dropped steadily for the last 3 months against nearly all major currencies. In late November the US Dollar has fallen to a two and a half year low with the US Dollar Index hitting its lowest value since April 2018.

Get more details in the article US Dollar Forecasts.


Swedish Krona (SEK)

It’s been a grim 16 months for the Swedish krona. In October hitting a record low of 9.90 per USD and falling to its weakest level against the euro since the wake of the financial crisis as global trade tensions continued to take a toll.

2019 weakness has confounded forecasters, who predicted at the start of the year a much stronger currency based on expectations for higher interest rates in Sweden. With economic conditions changing for the worse, markets have now completely priced out any rate hike in 2019, spurring krona weakness.

Danske Bank said in May that “EUR/SEK is somewhat overbought … however, we believe there is a clear risk that Swedish growth and inflation will undershoot the Riksbank’s forecasts … and that monetary policy will have to remain accommodative for the foreseeable future.” As a result, Danske raised its 12-month EUR/SEK forecast to 11.00 to reflect its more bearish krona outlook.

How to get Best USD to SEK 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.
