Currency news and forecasts for Philippine Peso and United States 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 PHP vs USD, you should pay attention to both Philippine Peso and United States Dollar news and forecasts.

Philippine Peso (PHP) - Market news and forecasts

9-January-19: Since 2013, the Philippine peso has been among the world’s worst performing currencies. In the final quarter of 2018, the peso weakened to its lowest level against the US dollar since 2005, at rates in the ₱54.40s. By 2018 year-end, the peso had recovered into the mid-₱52s per USD and was down around 5 percent for the year.

Unfortunately for peso holders, the currency’s downtrend (USD/PHP’s uptrend) will likely resume in 2019, per remarks by DBS’ chief economist, who said “a very similar dynamic” of peso weakness would play out.

FX forecasters surveyed by Bloomberg in January expected the peso to be the joint second-worst performing Asian currency of 2019, with an expected loss versus the dollar of 2.5 percent. Given that the same forecasters expected a disappointing year for the dollar, it was implied that the peso would do far worse against other major currencies.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

26-January-19: 2018 was a reasonable year for the dollar. Measured by the US Dollar Index, the greenback appreciated by 4 percent, which was much better than 2017’s 10 percent loss. It was, though, something of a stuttering end to 2018 and the dollar has had mixed fortunes in early 2019.

In December, after lifting US interest rates to 2.25-2.5 percent, the Fed lowered its expectations for future hikes due to so-called “cross currents” (China, Brexit, trade wars etc.). Skepticism among analysts over future Fed hikes has for some time been the main reason for dollar pessimism for 2019, but now, there is also the prospect of a US economic slowdown to contend with.

“A slowdown in the economy is likely to weigh on USD particularly in the second half of this year,” a CIBC researcher said in January.

Of the same opinion was an expert at ING, who argued that the dollar is soon to “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend.”

January’s extended US government shutdown also has dollar-negative ramifications. Not only is the shutdown likely to hit first-quarter GDP growth, disagreements within Congress bode poorly for the future of potentially inflationary fiscal spending.
