    Default NZD help


    OK I am not after trading advice but more of a general nature. I want to bring some money over from NZ but the exchange rate is pretty average. Having waited it out for about 2 months now, should I just bring the money over and deal with the lower amount or is there hope the rate may go in my favour soon?

    Thanks for any help

    You're asking for financial advice in a forum which is just about trading FX.

    Anyhow - I always just say, hedge your bets, move 50% now and 50% later

    Thanksfor the 50/50 suggestion. I guess it is financial info I am looking for but not really FX trading advice as this is my own money I am wanting to bring over, not trading. I have a small at home business that I run from Aust but supply to myself in NZ. The NZ side owes the Aust side some $$$ but if I bring the money over it is a big loss with the current exchange rate.
    I am funding the Aust side with personal money ATM but need to put a stop to that and get the NZ side to pay its outstanding invoices back to Aust. The rate is not moving so I guess I just have to suffer the poor exchange rate as it has been at the same rate now for a couple of months.

    New Order, if you don't have to do anything immediately, it might be worth waiting a little. The $NZ has been adversely affected by the earthquake. However, I've noticed in recent days it is slightly strengthening against the $A.

    This is not advice, yadayada, but if it were me and I could delay the decision for a while, that's what I'd be doing. Good luck.

    One other small thought: when I moved to Australia from NZ about 18 years ago and was bringing a fairly substantial amount of capital over, I was faced with the same dilemma. Found having a frank discussion with the managers of the various banks very worthwhile. Eventually did a forward exchange contract where the currency exchange took place when a certain value was reached.
    Your situation is obviously quite different, but it might just be worth your while to seek some advice from your bank if you're talking about a substantial amount.

    Thanks Julia, I can hold off for a month or so and think that is what I will do for now.

    It is smaller amounts that need to come over on a semi regular basis so I set up a Forex acct to do it. I won't talk to the bank manager in NZ as I have just had to put mortage payments on a 3 month holiday due to the quakes, have had enough of dealing with the bank for now.
