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

Approaching the middle of August, the yen is the best performing currency of the year. Although it holds only a modest 1.7 percent gain over the US dollar (110.81) year-to-date, it's up handsomely elsewhere. Versus the Australian dollar (80.92), euro (126.43) and pound (141.60), the yen has gained an average of 8 percent.

The yen has been widely sought by investors in recent months due to its safe haven status. Investors have become more risk averse following chaos in emerging markets, led by Turkey and Argentina, and Washington’s massive tariffs on imported goods, which threaten global trade. The yen has also benefitted from speculation that the Bank of Japan will soon make changes to its ultra-loose monetary policy. Although low by international standards, yields on Japanese government bonds have risen to long-term highs and are now double 2017 averages.

In August, SEB was forecasting end-of-September rates of: EUR/JPY, 122; USD/JPY, 111; AUD/JPY, 82.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

In April, the Monetary Authority of Singapore said for the first time in six years that it would allow the Singapore dollar to appreciate. Unconventionally, the MAS manages monetary policy by managing the value of SGD. By allowing the currency to rise, it will effectively tighten policy in response to robust economic growth – 4.3% in the fourth quarter.

USD/SGD has, for the most part, followed the broader market for dollar pairs in 2018. The pair reached 1.3 in January for the first time since 2014 but since then has rallied. It was back to 1.4 in early May.

In early May, for the first time in nearly two years, the Singapore dollar broke parity with the Australian dollar. When last seen, AUD/SGD was at 0.998.

Based on a global macro model and analyst expectations, the team at is forecasting USD/SGD at 1.37 at the end of April 2019.
