Pound Sterling - Malaysian Ringgit Forecasting

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the GBP vs MYR, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Pound Sterling (GBP)

In the 2nd half of August market analysts started forecasting risk to the downside for the pound from US 1.33 given the tight 7 week deadline for Brexit combined with the drop in domestic demand due to the pandemic.

US dollar weakness has helped the embattled pound continue its recovery off June and early July lows. Despite this brief upturn, the outlook remains pessimistic as Brexit uncertainty and questions over the economy’s ability to rebound after the pandemic weigh on the currency.

In late July pound sterling is heading back towards US1.30 due to US dollar weakness. This is a remarkable change of fortunes for GBP which was sold-off after the Brexit vote and again after the virus forced a lockdown in London, the world’s largest foreign-exchange centre. Against the dollar, sterling touched the lowest level in 35 years (below US1.16) in March as traders sought the safety of the USD.

The coronavirus pandemic has replaced Brexit in the headlines and means that the deadline for a trade deal with the Eurozone this year could either be pushed back, delaying a risk for the currency, or see more favorable terms given to the U.K.

Malaysian Ringgit (MYR)

The Malaysian ringgit is up around 2.5% against the US dollar for 2020 (in August) and is gaining favour from bank commentators such as HSBC due to the attraction of the carry trade - the ability to earn higher interest when holding MYR versus other major currencies.
