Currency news and forecasts for Singapore Dollar and Australian Dollar

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison 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

4-Jan-2019: 2018 was a steady year for the Singapore dollar. It lost out marginally against the US dollar (S$1.363) with a decline of 2 percent, but that was offset by a gain of nearly 3 percent against the euro (S$1.563). The Singapore dollar was especially strong last year against the Australian dollar, relative to which it climbed 8.5 percent to a 10-year high (AUD/SGD low) of S$0.961.

With Singapore being a small, trade-dependent country, prime risks to the SGD for 2019 will include a re-emergence of trade tensions between China and the US, and/or a global economic slowdown — the latter was a real possibility at the time of writing if economic data, higher interest rates, tumbling stock prices and earnings warnings from the world’s largest companies were anything to go by.

SGD will dip slightly in early 2019, an analyst at Singaporean bank OCBC said in January, before the “confluence of an uncertain Fed and a stabilization in China allows for a more sustained uptrend.” Don’t expect too much in the way of appreciation, though. The analyst argued for a floor under USD/SGD at S$1.30, indicative of potential SGD strength worth 5 percent from January’s opening rate.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

17-January-19: The Australian dollar recovered strongly following a "flash crash" in early January which saw it briefly trade at a 10-year low of 67.4 US cents.

By the time of this report, AUD/USD was back at 72 cents and roughly in line with December’s median exchange rate. The Aussie was similarly strong against other major currencies following its mini crash.

Several months ago, most analysts agreed that the Aussie was heading higher in 2019, but things have changed. In recent months, investors have become increasingly certain that no increase to Australian interest rates will be seen until 2020; there is, in fact, now a 25 percent chance of an RBA cut, per derivatives pricing. Inaction on interest rates will force capital away from Australia and towards countries where rates are higher or are expected to increase.

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

In opposition to that view, at least relative to the US dollar, was a CIBC analyst, who said that at current levels the Aussie was “very undervalued” and was his “best bet” for 2019. The analyst’s view was based upon there being a positive resolution to the US-China trade spat. The Aussie could be worth as much as 78 US cents in the second half of 2019, the analyst said.
