The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Hong Kong Dollar and Singapore Dollar

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 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

2018 has been a good year for the Hong Kong dollar, as it has been for the US dollar, to which it is pegged.

Entering the third week of November 2018, HKD’s year-to-date gains over six of the seven non-USD majors averaged 5.4 percent. HKD was unchanged against the yen.

At different times in 2018, HKD has benefitted from Brexit uncertainty in Europe, from inactivity on monetary policy in Oceania, and a recent collapse in the oil market, which saw its value rise against petro-currencies.

Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for HKD approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, HKD has averaged trade-weighted gains of 1.8 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December.

By way of its USD forecasts, Citibank said in September that HKD would gain 3-4 percent over a 6-12-month period; however, gains would be followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term.

Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on USD and HKD. ING isn't ruling out interventions from Washington aimed at weakening the greenback. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.

J.P. Morgan said in November that USD and HKD would be worth slightly more in the first half of 2019, before weakening slightly in the second half of the year.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

28-November-18: Principal drivers of the Singapore dollar in 2018 have included global trade concerns and the strong US dollar.

In October, SGD weakened to a 16-month low of S$1.387 per USD before recovering somewhat in November into the low S$1.37s – still a 2.5 percent loss for the year.

SGD fared better against the other majors though, especially the Australian dollar, against which it broke parity. At the time of writing, SGD/AUD was trading precisely at 1.00.

At October’s semi-annual meeting of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the slope of the S$NEER currency band was adjusted slightly upwards, as widely expected, although the width and centre of the band were left unchanged. What many consider to be a more hawkish bias within the MAS is the result of improved outlooks for inflation and the labour market.

In November, ING warned against holding second-tier currencies from small, open, trade-dependent countries like Singapore because of its suspicion that trade tensions between the US and China would resurface heading into year-end.
