Why can't I just get the GBP/SGD market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The GBP/SGD mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google 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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market GBP/SGD midrate the better deal you are getting.

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

  3. Review up-to-date Currency News and Forecasts for both the and currencies, if available.

Currency news and forecasts for British Pound Sterling and Singapore Dollar

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

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 both British Pound Sterling and Singapore Dollar news and forecasts.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

The Brexit debacle continues, as does above-average volatility in the British pound. Until now, the UK government’s inability to make any decisions has been to sterling’s advantage, since this casts doubt on the delivery of Brexit and/or makes a softer Brexit more likely.

Sterling’s uptrend is evident from recent peaks against the dollar, coming in at $1.322 on January-25, at $1.335 on February-27, and at $1.338 on March-13. Sterling had been as low as $1.237 in early January. It was at $1.32 at the time of this report.

Increasing the risk of a no-deal Brexit (potentially very bad for sterling) was the statement made on March-20 by EU Council President Donald Tusk, who said that the EU would agree to the Article 50 extension sought by the UK government only if British MPs first backed the current withdrawal agreement—the one that had twice been defeated by large parliamentary majorities.

Pound forecasts are futile given uncertainties over Brexit but estimates can be made for different outcomes. Currency analysts at HSBC said in February that sterling would be valued at levels near $1.10 in the event of no-deal, near $1.45 with a deal and at $1.55 if Brexit is cancelled.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

22-February-2019: 2018 was a steady year for the Singapore dollar: on balance it gained value, but it did lose out slightly against the world’s reserve currency, the US dollar.

2019 has begun reasonably well. Entering the final week of February, SGD was a percent higher year-to-date versus USD, but at US$0.74 was in line with its 2018 average rate. SGD was 2 percent higher year-to-date against EUR at a 9-month closing high of €0.653 — 4 percent higher than 2018’s average.

Against AUD, in February, SGD was unchanged year-to-date but was 4.5 percent higher than last year's average, at A$1.038. During a flash crash on January 3rd, SGD/AUD briefly traded at a 10-year high of A$1.088.

With Singapore being a small, trade-dependent country, prime risks to SGD for 2019 include the re-emergence of trade tensions between China and the US, and/or a serious global economic slowdown.

Traders, though, were happy to bet against the above risks and on SGD appreciation at the time of this report: a Reuters survey in February showed “long” SGD positions among bank traders rising to the highest level in 10 months.
