Outlook and forecasts for PHP and USD

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 USD, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Philippine Peso and United States Dollar:


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.


United States Dollar (USD) outlook

The US dollar has benefitted this year despite some quite serious escalations in US-China trade tensions, mainly because the greenback is still considered a safer currency to own than most others. By mid-May, the Dollar Index was nearly 2 percent higher year-to-date; it was only 0.5 percent away from making a 2-year high.

The greenback’s 2019 strength has come in spite of a dovish turn by the Federal Reserve, which said in March it expects no interest rate increase this year. Fortunately for dollar holders, the rest of the world has problems and many other central banks have also turned dovish, removing some of the policy-based incentives for selling USD.

In May, HSBC warned against thinking that the dollar has got too high. The bank highlighted the “desolation and destruction” (an exaggeration) facing other economies and currencies. “You can never get too high,” the bank’s chief analyst said. “What would you want to buy out there if not dollars?”

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

The PHP/USD 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 / USD 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.
