Right now the SGD/JPY market rate is and represents how many Japanese yen you can get for one Singapore dollar. You can calculate with the current mid-rate using our SGD to JPY calculator below but note the rate will most likely be quite different by the time you make you currency exchange.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however 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 comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.



Why can't I just get the same SGD/JPY market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

When you look up the current Singapore dollar to Japanese yen exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

Getting a great SGD to JPY mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.

Singapore dollar - market update

In 2018, Singapore developments and economic data have been less of a driver of SGD FX rates, with most simply following the broader market(s).

In January, after breaking significant technical support at 1.335, USD/SGD fell to 1.3 for the first time since 2014. Then, in line with the broader market for dollar pairs, USD/SGD rallied by mid-February into the high 1.31s. 1.335 remains a significant technical level in this pair.

Against a very strong Japanese yen, SGD lost nearly 4% of its value in the first seven weeks of the year; however, this was once again in line with the broad moves in yen pairs. In mid-February, SGD bought roughly 81 yen.

Against the euro, SGD continues to lose value in 2018, as it did in 2017. SGD weakened in early February to 1.645 per euro – its weakest level in two-and-a-half years.

The team at TradingEconomics.com is forecasting SGD weakness ahead. It sees the currency weakening to 1.38 per US dollar before the end of the year.

Japanese yen - market update

The Japanese yen spent much of 2017 trading up and down between 108 and 115 per US dollar, but has been the best performing G10 currency in early 2018. In the first seven weeks of the year, USD/JPY fell 6% to 106.11, marking the yen’s strongest level against the dollar in fifteen months.

The yen has also made back ground against the euro, strengthening by mid-February to rates in the low 132s; however, the yen remains weak against the euro by recent standards – EUR/JPY had been as low as 109.2 in mid-2016.

The yen’s strength in early 2018 will have surprised analysts at UBS. Entering the new year, the bank predicted that the yen would do worst of all the FX majors this year on the grounds that Shinzo Abe’s re-election in 2017 would likley mean a continuation of extremely loose monetary policy in Japan. UBS believed that the yen would weaken to levels above 115 per dollar.

“Analysts have struggled to explain why the yen is rising,” said the Financial Times in February, especially when the differential between US and Japanese interest rates continues to widen in favour of the dollar.

“I think [the reason for yen strength] is more technical,” said Citi analyst Koichi Kano.
