Currency news and forecasts for Japanese Yen and Singapore Dollar

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 SGD, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and Singapore Dollar 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.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

4-Jan-2019: 2018 was a steady year for the Singapore dollar. It lost out marginally against the US dollar (S$1.363) with a decline of 2 percent, but that was offset by a gain of nearly 3 percent against the euro (S$1.563). The Singapore dollar was especially strong last year against the Australian dollar, relative to which it climbed 8.5 percent to a 10-year high (AUD/SGD low) of S$0.961.

With Singapore being a small, trade-dependent country, prime risks to the SGD for 2019 will include a re-emergence of trade tensions between China and the US, and/or a global economic slowdown — the latter was a real possibility at the time of writing if economic data, higher interest rates, tumbling stock prices and earnings warnings from the world’s largest companies were anything to go by.

SGD will dip slightly in early 2019, an analyst at Singaporean bank OCBC said in January, before the “confluence of an uncertain Fed and a stabilization in China allows for a more sustained uptrend.” Don’t expect too much in the way of appreciation, though. The analyst argued for a floor under USD/SGD at S$1.30, indicative of potential SGD strength worth 5 percent from January’s opening rate.
