3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Malaysian ringgit and British pound sterling

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 is always determined quoted in comparison to another currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the MYR vs GBP, you should pay attention to both Malaysian ringgit and British pound sterling news and forecasts.

Malaysian ringgit (MYR) - Market news and forecasts

The ringgit had a strong start to 2018. The currency climbed in early April to a 2-year high against the dollar (3.856), to an 11-month high against the euro (4.727) and to a 21-month high against the Australian dollar (2.957). At the time of this report, the ringgit was Asia’s second best performing currency of the year.

Investors will have to suffer greater volatility in ringgit markets in the second quarter, thinks the team at UOB, due to growing trade tensions between the US and China, which threatens the outlook of export-driven Asian economies like Malaysia. Any significant escalation of trade tensions might see investors sell the ringgit as they seek the relative safety of dollars, euros, yen and similar currencies. The ringgit will, however, be among the most resilient Asian currencies in the face of a trade war, says the bank, due to favourable domestic growth drivers.

UOB expects the ringgit to strengthen further by year-end to 3.8 per dollar.

British pound sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

Like most currencies, the pound was strong against the US dollar in early 2018. By late March, in line with the broader market for dollar pairs, GBP/USD had fallen back from January’s 19-month high of 1.434 to 1.4, but remained up 4% on the year and 17% higher than 2017’s low of 1.2.

Mirroring the standoff between UK and EU Brexit negotiators, the pound-euro exchange rate did little in the six-month period between October ’17 and March ’18. The pound continues to buy roughly 1.14 euros.

Like most other G10 currencies, the pound gained significantly in early 2018 against the Australian dollar and lost out against the yen.

According to a Reuters survey of FX analysts in March, the pound will end the year buying 1.41 US dollars (entering 2018, most analysts predicted rates between 1.3 and 1.35) and 1.12-1.14 euros.
