USD/PHP – this currency pair which normally trades in a narrow range due to frequent intervention from the BSP (Philippine Central Bank).
Philippine Vice-President Leni Robredo made an urgent plea for vaccinations to speed up amidst a rise of the delta strain of coronavirus cases.
The Philippine Central Bank will be concerned should USD/PHP climb further to the 51.00 level and may be forced to act.
Migrant workers from Asia’s developing countries, such as the Philippines, have been sending home record amounts of money in recent months, defying pandemic expectations and propping up home economies at a critical time.
However, it appears workers are just sending money home in advance of their own return due to a bleak job market, particularly in the Middle East.
The Philippines government, expects almost 300,000 overseas Filipinos to come home this year, with potentially severe consequences as remittances make up about 10% of the economy.
AUD/PHP – 90-day chart has seen this cross between 36.50 and 37.80 (give or take a few points). Difficult to see any changes on this cross unless the US 10-year yield climbs back to recent highs.
