Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Singapore Dollar and Canadian 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 CAD, you should pay attention to both Singapore Dollar and Canadian Dollar news and forecasts.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

28-November-18: Principal drivers of the Singapore dollar in 2018 have included global trade concerns and the strong US dollar.

In October, SGD weakened to a 16-month low of S$1.387 per USD before recovering somewhat in November into the low S$1.37s – still a 2.5 percent loss for the year.

SGD fared better against the other majors though, especially the Australian dollar, against which it broke parity. At the time of writing, SGD/AUD was trading precisely at 1.00.

At October’s semi-annual meeting of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the slope of the S$NEER currency band was adjusted slightly upwards, as widely expected, although the width and centre of the band were left unchanged. What many consider to be a more hawkish bias within the MAS is the result of improved outlooks for inflation and the labour market.

In November, ING warned against holding second-tier currencies from small, open, trade-dependent countries like Singapore because of its suspicion that trade tensions between the US and China would resurface heading into year-end.

Canadian Dollar (CAD) - Market news and forecasts

5-December-18: In early December, the Canadian dollar traded at C$1.34 per USD — its weakest level in 18 months. It did so after traders revised down their expectations for future Canadian interest rate hikes following a dovish Bank of Canada meeting.

Also not helping the loonie in late 2018 has been the oil price which, by the time of this report, had slumped 30 percent from 2018 highs. Oil is Canada’s largest export.

In December, several FX analysts expressed a belief that inevitable OPEC production cuts will create a rebound in the oil market, which will drive the Canadian dollar higher throughout 2019.

Risks to the Canadian dollar include, of course, oil, and the return of global trade tensions. Tensions eased in early December when US and Chinese leaders agreed to suspend tariff increases for 3 months.

Also in December, Citibank offered a “long-term” (>18 months) forecast for USD/CAD of 1.2, representing potential CAD appreciation of 12 percent.
