Currency news and forecasts for Singapore Dollar and Malaysian Ringgit

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 MYR, you should pay attention to both Singapore Dollar and Malaysian Ringgit news and forecasts.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

2019 has begun steadily for the Singapore dollar. In the third week of April, SGD is little changed (<1 percent) on the year against both the US dollar (S$1.356) and Australian dollar (S$0.97), but it continues to impress against the euro, relative to which it has strengthened by 2.5 percent year-to-date to S$1.524—near its strongest level in 2 years. A big-picture view shows SGD trading sideways against the pound since late 2016, now at S$1.763. SGD reached a 17-month high against the Malaysian ringgit in April, at RM3.073.

With core inflation at a 9-month low in the lead-up to this report and quarterly economic growth at a 2-year low, it’s likely that the Monetary Authority of Singapore will keep monetary policy unchanged when it next meets in October.

According to TradingEconomics.com, the Singapore dollar is likely to be worth S$1.37 per US dollar in 12 months’ time (April 2020).

Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) - Market news and forecasts

The period between April and November 2018 was a tough one for the ringgit, as it lost value against the dollar on a near-weekly basis. Fortunately, losses in that period only amounted to 8 percent and only took the currency to a 1-year low of RM4.2 — it could have been much worse.

Since then, the ringgit has turned a corner; in late February it was trading at RM4.06, near 6-month highs.

Among factors contributing to the ringgit’s weakness over the past year has been political uncertainty relating to Malaysia’s ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition, late-2018’s crash in oil prices, global trade tensions and higher US interest rates. There are positive factors though.

“With good GDP data and strong economic fundamentals coupled with positive external factors, I believe the ringgit can go higher to RM4.02 [per USD],” a dealer said in February.

The team at TradingEconomics.com believes the ringgit weakens to RM4.14 by year-end.
