Currency news and forecasts for Singapore Dollar and Japanese Yen

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 JPY, you should pay attention to both Singapore Dollar and Japanese Yen 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.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

2-February-2019: The yen was the best performing major currency of 2018.

In early 2019, amid a “flash crash” USD/JPY briefly struck a 9-month low (yen high) of 104.65, EUR/JPY reached 118.82 and AUD/JPY touched a 10-year low of 70.58. These values greatly flattered the yen and rebounds followed quickly. By early February, the yen was, on balance, back where it had ended 2018. USD/JPY, EUR/JPY and AUD/JPY stood at 109.52, 125.58 and 77.25 respectively.

Analysts appeared to agree in January that the yen would strengthen throughout 2019 and beyond.

Experts at giant European banks Deutsche Bank and Credit Agricole forecast USD/JPY at 100 at the end of this year, indicating a potential 10 percent increase in the yen’s buying power relative to the greenback.

100 yen to the US dollar was “very attainable,” Russell Investments said, “if there’s a severe slowdown in the US economy.”
