Currency news and forecasts for Australian Dollar and Malaysian Ringgit

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the AUD vs MYR, you should pay attention to both Australian Dollar and Malaysian Ringgit news and forecasts.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

Following a flash crash in early January, which saw the Australian dollar briefly trade at a 10-year low of $0.674, the Aussie recovered to $0.73, but then, as it had done before the flash crash, it commenced with a slow and steady decline, and it was back at $0.705 in mid-March and was predicted to fall further.

In February, HSBC predicted a year-end AUD/USD rate of $0.66. In March, Westpac and JP Morgan were slightly more upbeat and argued for $0.68.

Fuelling lower exchange rate forecasts is the Australian economic story, for which major themes include a housing market slump, Chinese growth and the US-China trade spat. The RBA slashed growth forecasts in February and markets are now pricing in 1-2 interest rate cuts this year.

Another Aussie exchange rate worth mentioning is AUD/GBP, which sank in mid-March to its lowest level in nearly 3 years, at just £0.53. The Australian dollar has been unable to compete with the pound of late, since the latter benefits every time the British government fails to make a decision on how to deliver Brexit (every time Brexit appears less likely or to be delayed).

Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) - Market news and forecasts

26-February-2019: The period between April and November 2018 was a tough one for the ringgit, as it lost value against the dollar on a near-weekly basis. Fortunately, losses in that period only amounted to 8 percent and only took the currency to a 1-year low of RM4.2 — it could have been much worse.

Since then, the ringgit has turned a corner; in late February it was trading at RM4.06, near 6-month highs.

Among factors contributing to the ringgit’s weakness over the past year has been political uncertainty relating to Malaysia's ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition, late-2018’s crash in oil prices, global trade tensions and higher US interest rates. There are positive factors though.

"With good GDP data and strong economic fundamentals coupled with positive external factors, I believe the ringgit can go higher to RM4.02 [per USD]," a dealer said in February.

The team at TradingEconomics.com believes the ringgit weakens to RM4.14 by year-end.
