3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Singapore dollar and Hong Kong 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 is always determined quoted in comparison to another currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the SGD vs HKD, you should pay attention to both Singapore dollar and Hong Kong dollar news and forecasts.

Singapore dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

In 2018, Singapore developments and economic data have been less of a driver of SGD FX rates, with most simply following the broader market(s).

In January, after breaking significant technical support at 1.335, USD/SGD fell to 1.3 for the first time since 2014. Then, in line with the broader market for dollar pairs, USD/SGD rallied by mid-February into the high 1.31s. 1.335 remains a significant technical level in this pair.

Against a very strong Japanese yen, SGD lost nearly 4% of its value in the first seven weeks of the year; however, this was once again in line with the broad moves in yen pairs. In mid-February, SGD bought roughly 81 yen.

Against the euro, SGD continues to lose value in 2018, as it did in 2017. SGD weakened in early February to 1.645 per euro – its weakest level in two-and-a-half years.

The team at TradingEconomics.com is forecasting SGD weakness ahead. It sees the currency weakening to 1.38 per US dollar before the end of the year.

Hong Kong dollar (HKD) - Market news and forecasts

In March, the Hong Kong dollar weakened to the extreme of its allowed trading range, at 7.85 per US dollar, marking the point at which the Hong Kong Monetary Authority must step in to defend the currency.

The Hong Kong dollar has fallen to multi-decade lows due to a widening of the US-Hong Kong interest rate differential. Despite the HKMA raising interest rates in step with the US Federal Reserve, rates paid on Hong Kong dollars have remained low over the past fifteen months due to abundant liquidity in Hong Kong’s financial system; meanwhile, rates paid on US dollars have risen steadily. For large investors, this provides an incentive to exchange (sell) borrowed Hong Kong dollars for higher-yielding US dollars.

Due to Hong Kong’s sizeable foreign exchange reserves, which are among the largest in the world, a speculative attack on the USD/HKD peg is unlikely.

In March, the Hong Kong dollar also stood close to long-term lows against both the Japanese yen and euro.
