Hong Kong dollar - market update

In 2017, the Hong Kong dollar twice threatened to weaken to 7.83 per dollar, as it did in early 2016, but support for the currency came in at that level. USD/HKD ended the year at 7.81. 2017’s weakness was the result of the widening spread in US-over-Hong Kong interbank interest rates.

In early 2018, HKD continues to weaken and having fallen in seven of the year’s first nine weeks to 7.825 (February-27), looks set for yet another challenge on 7.83. The level remains significant resistance in USD/HKD, although the real point of no return is 7.85; that being the upper extreme of the currency’s peg to the dollar (see ‘General currency information’).

Against the euro, HKD fell in February to three-year lows (EUR/HKD highs) near 9.82 per euro.

One expert said in February that he expects HKD to remain weak for the foreseeable future due to sizeable liquidity in Hong Kong’s financial system, which acts to keep a lid on interest rates paid on HKD.
