Outlook and forecasts for GBP and SGD

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the GBP vs SGD, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both British Pound Sterling and Singapore Dollar:

 

British Pound Sterling (GBP) outlook

Nine straight days of losses against the euro in May took the pound to a 3-month low of €1.143, and similar losses against the US dollar meant quotes in the low $1.28s — also a 3-month low.

Sterling weakness has returned following a breakdown in the UK of cross-party Brexit talks, which has brought “no deal” back to life.

It seems nothing much has changed: PM Theresa May has announced that she will ask the House of Commons to vote again on her withdrawal deal in early June (the deal has already been rejected three times).

A fourth defeat for May’s plan is widely expected and would make no-deal much realer, with little time to organize any alternative before the October-31 exit date (unlikely to be extended). It remains possible, however, that Brexit is cancelled entirely.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) outlook

A big-picture view shows SGD trading sideways against the pound since late 2016, now at S$1.763. SGD reached a 17-month high against the Malaysian ringgit in April, at RM3.073.

With core inflation at a 9-month low in the lead-up to this report and quarterly economic growth at a 2-year low, it’s likely that the Monetary Authority of Singapore will keep monetary policy unchanged when it next meets in October.

According to TradingEconomics.com, the Singapore dollar is likely to be worth S$1.37 per US dollar in 12 months’ time (April 2020).

Why can't I just get the GBP/SGD market rate I see online or in the media?

The GBP/SGD mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the GBP / SGD was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
