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.

Our real-time comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Japanese Yen 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 JPY vs SGD, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and Singapore Dollar news and forecasts.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

The yen has fallen steadily against the US dollar since March. By October 1st, the day of this report, it had reached a ten-month low of ¥114, mainly as monetary policies in the US and Japan continue to diverge. The yen also fell to an eight-month low versus the trade deal-boosted Canadian dollar (¥89.17) but was largely unchanged in the March-September period against other major currencies.

With Japanese monetary policy remaining dull and extremely loose (Japan continues to pursue inflation via extremely low interest rates), the source of yen upside for the remainder of 2018 is likely to be restricted to possible event risk, which might come in the form of a no-deal Brexit, negative political developments in Italy or heightened trade tensions between the US and China.

In October, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stands in an LDP leadership contest. Should Abe fail in his bid to secure a third term as leader (highly unlikely), the yen would gain on speculation of a change in economic policies.

In October, Citibank offered 6-12-month yen forecasts of ¥114 to the US dollar, unchanged on its rate at the time of writing, and ¥128 to the euro—¥131.3 as of writing.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

Principal drivers of the Singapore dollar in 2018 have included global trade concerns and the stronger US dollar.

In early October, SGD weakened to a 16-month low of 1.387 per USD before recovering by the time of this report (October-13) into the high 1.37s – still a 2.9 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 traded at 1.02.

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 October, ING warned against holding second-tier, trade-dependent currencies like the Singapore dollar; it suspected global trade tensions would return following November’s US mid-term elections.
