PHP and USD in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the PHP vs USD, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Philippine Peso (PHP)

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.


US Dollar (USD)

Growing fears of the coronavirus outbreak has moved the market into safer currencies such as the USD and away from AUD, NZD and CAD.

The US dollar held its value in 2019 despite a serious escalation in US-China trade tensions, mainly because the greenback is still considered a safer currency to own than most others.

At its October meeting the Federal Reserve cut the target range for the federal funds rate to 1.5-1.75 percent, the third rate cut so far this year, amid soft inflation indicators and general worries about the economy. However the central bank also signaled a pause in the easing cycle.

Taking the blame for the economic downturn is US President Donald Trump, whose trade war policies have set a ball rolling that could wipe $455bn from global output according to the IMF.

How to get Best PHP to USD Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

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.
