Currency news and forecasts for Singapore Dollar and British Pound Sterling

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 GBP, you should pay attention to both Singapore Dollar and British Pound Sterling 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.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

The Brexit debacle continues, as does above-average volatility in the British pound. Until now, the UK government’s inability to make any decisions has been to sterling’s advantage, since this casts doubt on the delivery of Brexit and/or makes a softer Brexit more likely.

Sterling’s uptrend is evident from recent peaks against the dollar, coming in at $1.322 on January-25, at $1.335 on February-27, and at $1.338 on March-13. Sterling had been as low as $1.237 in early January. It was at $1.32 at the time of this report.

Increasing the risk of a no-deal Brexit (potentially very bad for sterling) was the statement made on March-20 by EU Council President Donald Tusk, who said that the EU would agree to the Article 50 extension sought by the UK government only if British MPs first backed the current withdrawal agreement—the one that had twice been defeated by large parliamentary majorities.

Pound forecasts are futile given uncertainties over Brexit but estimates can be made for different outcomes. Currency analysts at HSBC said in February that sterling would be valued at levels near $1.10 in the event of no-deal, near $1.45 with a deal and at $1.55 if Brexit is cancelled.
