Currency news and forecasts for Singapore Dollar and Australian 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 SGD vs AUD, you should pay attention to both Singapore Dollar and Australian Dollar news and forecasts.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

22-February-2019: 2018 was a steady year for the Singapore dollar: on balance it gained value, but it did lose out slightly against the world’s reserve currency, the US dollar.

2019 has begun reasonably well. Entering the final week of February, SGD was a percent higher year-to-date versus USD, but at US$0.74 was in line with its 2018 average rate. SGD was 2 percent higher year-to-date against EUR at a 9-month closing high of €0.653 — 4 percent higher than 2018’s average.

Against AUD, in February, SGD was unchanged year-to-date but was 4.5 percent higher than last year's average, at A$1.038. During a flash crash on January 3rd, SGD/AUD briefly traded at a 10-year high of A$1.088.

With Singapore being a small, trade-dependent country, prime risks to SGD for 2019 include the re-emergence of trade tensions between China and the US, and/or a serious global economic slowdown.

Traders, though, were happy to bet against the above risks and on SGD appreciation at the time of this report: a Reuters survey in February showed “long” SGD positions among bank traders rising to the highest level in 10 months.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

19-February-19: Since a flash crash in early January which saw the Australian dollar briefly trade at a 10-year low, the Aussie has recovered and then stabilized in the US71-72¢ region, near the average rate of the past 6 months.

Of late, the outlook for the Australian economy, and therefore for the Australian dollar, has taken a turn for the worse: the RBA has slashed growth and inflation forecasts and markets have moved to price in a near-100 percent chance of an interest rate cut before the year is out.

In February, HSBC cut its AUD/USD forecast to just US66¢, nearly 20 percent below 2018’s high of US81.36¢. AUD rates in the mid-60s haven’t been seen since the great financial crisis a decade ago.

In January, a senior researcher at BNP Paribas said that the Australian dollar would “get absolutely crucified and could suffer a 25-30 percent [long-term] fall.”

Also in January, Capital Economics cuts its AUD/USD year-end forecast to just US60¢.
