SGD in the markets

Overall, it was a poor to mixed 2020 for the Singapore dollar, with a 9 percent drop against the euro and 8 percent versus the Australian dollar, but small gains (2 percent) against the US dollar and steady to the pound.

Singapore’s trade-reliant economy is teetering on the brink of a recession as the coronavirus pandemic weakens global trade and consumer spending.

There’s increased chance that the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) could start to push the Singapore dollar lower via direct market interventions (ie the central bank actively buying and selling the Singapore dollar).

The MAS typically announces policy decisions twice a year, around the middle of April and October. There have been, out-of-cycle announcement in the past (January 2015) that can surprise markets.

At the end of March 2020, Singapore’s central bank eased its monetary policy, as widely expected, with the city-state’s bellwether economy bracing for a deep recession due to the coronavirus pandemic.
