Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Singapore Dollar and Indian Rupee

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 INR, you should pay attention to both Singapore Dollar and Indian Rupee 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.

Indian Rupee (INR) - Market news and forecasts

Like other emerging market currencies, the Indian rupee has been under significant pressure in 2018. It made an all-time low in October of 74.5 to the dollar and fell to a 4-1/2-year low versus the euro, which bought 86.15 rupees.

By the time of this report (November-21), the rupee had, though, recovered somewhat, reaching its strongest levels of the fourth quarter. Recoveries worth 5 and 6 percent against the dollar and euro respectively had USD/INR and EUR/INR trading at 70.92 and 80.974.

Among major problems for the rupee in 2018 has been the high price of oil, which raises India’s import bill substantially, but as luck would have it, the oil market has experienced a complete reversal in Q4. A $24 per barrel (30 percent) plunge in the oil price over 7 weeks is a blessing.

Political uncertainty (never good for a currency’s valuation) is likely to emerge in 2019, with expectations of a tough electoral battle for current Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.

One analyst said in November that the rupee would likely end 2018 stronger at 68 per US dollar.
