Outlook and forecasts for PHP and JPY

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the PHP vs JPY, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Philippine Peso and Japanese Yen:


Philippine Peso (PHP) outlook

It’s been a solid start to 2019 for the Philippine peso, which is up slightly (between 0.6 and 2 percent) against the US dollar, Australian dollar and euro. The peso has rebounded from 13-year lows struck in the fourth quarter of last year courtesy of economic reforms, proposed fiscal spending and an S&P credit rating upgrade.

The peso slipped in the week leading up to May’s Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas meeting, with traders correctly forecasting an interest rate cut (the first since 2016). The BSP is able to lower rates because inflation has halved over the past 6 months and is back at targeted levels.

The peso steadied post-BSP at levels near 52.2 per USD but might be pressured in the months ahead from further policy easing, which hasn’t been ruled out.

Per an ING analyst, the BSP will be comfortable with peso exchange rates between 52 and 55 per USD, but beyond these levels they might intervene in markets. ING is forecasting USD/PHP at 54 at year-end.


Japanese Yen (JPY) outlook

The yen was the star performer in the weeks leading up to this report (May-17), with appreciation driven by a flight to safety following a serious escalation in the US-China trade war. The benchmark yen rate, USD/JPY, was down in the mid-109s, having been as high as 112.4 in late April. Relatively speaking, against their April highs, other yen rates had fallen even more (NZD/JPY was down from 76 to 71.6).

In May, HSBC warned against thinking that yen-supporting safe-haven flows would soon stop, implying that the yen could have more upside potential in the near term. The bank highlighted the “desolation and destruction” (an exaggeration) present in many major economies and currencies. “You can never get too high,” the bank’s chief analyst said.

Why can't I just get the PHP/JPY market rate I see online or in the media?

The PHP/JPY mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the PHP / JPY was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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 foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
