3. 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 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 INR, you should pay attention to both Singapore dollar and Indian rupee 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.

Indian rupee (INR) - Market news and forecasts

By its own standards, the rupee made great inroads against the dollar in late 2017, and ushered in 2018 in much the same fashion.

In mid-November, the rupee began its determined climb against USD. Eight straight weeks of gains and an appreciation of 4% by January 5th (the time of this report) took the rupee to its strongest level in nearly two-and-a-half years, at 63.2 rupees per dollar.

Throughout early 2018, the rupee is likely to see continued support because of “increasing risks of an end to [the Reserve Bank of India’s] accommodative monetary policy,” thinks the team at ICICI Securities.

One exchange rate we look at often at Best Exchange Rates, the Australian dollar-rupee rate, fell (the rupee strengthened) throughout much of the final quarter of 2017. The rupee did, however, lose nearly half of its Q4 gains in the final three weeks of the year, mainly on broad Australian dollar strength.

With AUD/INR rates close to 50 in early January, a 4% climb is needed for AUD/INR to once again test 52.0 – one of the strongest resistance levels in all of FX.
