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

The HKD/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 HKD / 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 HKD/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.

Currency news and forecasts for Hong Kong Dollar 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 HKD vs SGD, you should pay attention to both Hong Kong Dollar and Singapore Dollar news and forecasts.

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) - Market news and forecasts

27-January-19: 2018 was a reasonable year for the Hong Kong dollar. Against a basket of major currencies, HKD appreciated by 4 percent, which was much better than a near-10 percent loss in 2017. It was, though, something of a stuttering end to 2018 and HKD has had mixed fortunes in early 2019.

As is well known, HKD follows, to a large extent, developments in US monetary policy. In December, after lifting US interest rates, the Fed lowered its expectations for future hikes due to so-called “cross currents” (China, Brexit, trade wars etc.). Skepticism among analysts over future Fed hikes has for some time been the main reason for HKD pessimism for 2019, but now, there is also the prospect of a US economic slowdown to contend with.

“A slowdown in the US economy is likely to weigh on USD [and therefore HKD] in the second half of this year,” a CIBC researcher said in January.

Of the same opinion was an expert at ING, who argued that USD, and therefore HKD, would soon “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend.”

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

4-Jan-2019: 2018 was a steady year for the Singapore dollar. It lost out marginally against the US dollar (S$1.363) with a decline of 2 percent, but that was offset by a gain of nearly 3 percent against the euro (S$1.563). The Singapore dollar was especially strong last year against the Australian dollar, relative to which it climbed 8.5 percent to a 10-year high (AUD/SGD low) of S$0.961.

With Singapore being a small, trade-dependent country, prime risks to the SGD for 2019 will include a re-emergence of trade tensions between China and the US, and/or a global economic slowdown — the latter was a real possibility at the time of writing if economic data, higher interest rates, tumbling stock prices and earnings warnings from the world’s largest companies were anything to go by.

SGD will dip slightly in early 2019, an analyst at Singaporean bank OCBC said in January, before the “confluence of an uncertain Fed and a stabilization in China allows for a more sustained uptrend.” Don’t expect too much in the way of appreciation, though. The analyst argued for a floor under USD/SGD at S$1.30, indicative of potential SGD strength worth 5 percent from January’s opening rate.
