Currency news and forecasts for Hong Kong Dollar and United States 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 USD, you should pay attention to both Hong Kong Dollar and United States 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.”

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

26-January-19: 2018 was a reasonable year for the dollar. Measured by the US Dollar Index, the greenback appreciated by 4 percent, which was much better than 2017’s 10 percent loss. It was, though, something of a stuttering end to 2018 and the dollar has had mixed fortunes in early 2019.

In December, after lifting US interest rates to 2.25-2.5 percent, 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 dollar pessimism for 2019, but now, there is also the prospect of a US economic slowdown to contend with.

“A slowdown in the economy is likely to weigh on USD particularly 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 the dollar is soon to “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend.”

January’s extended US government shutdown also has dollar-negative ramifications. Not only is the shutdown likely to hit first-quarter GDP growth, disagreements within Congress bode poorly for the future of potentially inflationary fiscal spending.
