Currency news and forecasts for Japanese Yen and Malaysian Ringgit

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 JPY vs MYR, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and Malaysian Ringgit news and forecasts.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

31-December-18: The yen was the best performing major currency of 2018. As 2019 rolled in, the Japanese currency touched a 6-month high against the dollar and a 4-month high against the euro. USD/JPY and EUR/JPY fell to respective rates of 109.7 and 125.5, marking yen strength for the year worth 2.7 percent and 7.6 percent.

In December, the yen — the FX world’s preferred safe haven — benefitted strongly from a notable switch to risk-off trading. Stock markets were volatile and falling hard and the prospect of further trade tensions and higher interest rates in 2019 unnerved investors.

Analysts appeared to agree in December that the yen would strengthen throughout 2019 and beyond.

The median estimate of economists polled by Bloomberg in December indicated USD/JPY would fall to 105 by the end of 2019. Experts at Mizuho, Citibank and Commerzbank saw the yen strengthening even further, to 100 or stronger. USD/JPY hasn’t traded at the symbolic 100 level since August 2016.

Yen strength will be driven by tighter Japanese monetary policy, experts said, and by a slower pace of policy tightening in the US. The US-Japanese interest rate differential will narrow.

Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) - Market news and forecasts

Like many other emerging market currencies, the ringgit struggled in 2018.

The ringgit weakened in November to a one-year low of RM4.2 per USD but had recovered slightly by the time of this report into the high RM4.17s.

Against the Singapore dollar — the currency of Malaysia’s largest trading partner — the ringgit weakened in November to 3.06 (also a one-year low at the time), before recovering to 3.043.

Among factors contributing to the ringgit’s weakness in 2018 has been political uncertainty relating to Malaysia's ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition, a 40 percent end-of-year crash in the price of oil, as well as general risk-off sentiment, driven partly by global trade tensions and most evident from a 20 percent fall in US equities prices. Higher US interest rates also make holding Malaysian currency less attractive.

“The ringgit will remain weak due to continued political uncertainty,” Fitch’s head of Asia Country Risk said in December.

For 2019 year-end, the team at TradingEconomics.com is forecasting USD/MYR and SGD/MYR at 4.19 and 3.01.
