Singapore Dollar and Malaysian Ringgit Forecasts

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the SGD vs MYR, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Singapore Dollar (SGD)

At the end of March, Singapore's central bank eased its monetary policy, as widely expected, with the city-state's bellwether economy bracing for a deep recession due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The MAS said it would adopt a zero percent per annum rate of appreciation of the policy band starting at the prevailing level, currently slightly below the mid-point of the policy band.

The markets viewed this annoucement as showing the MAS has kept some fire-power in reserve and could intervene again to lower the SGD.

NAB told Bloomberg TV that it sees a recovery in Asian currencies in the 2nd half of the year if the coronavirus comes under control.

Overall, it was a mixed 2019 for the Singapore dollar, with small gains (<2 percent) against the euro and Australian dollar, but small losses against the US dollar and pound.

Malaysian Ringgit (MYR)

Malaysia was added to a US watchlist of suspected currency manipulators in May. Though that means little right now in terms of economic implications, it added to negative sentiment, which then spurred a rise in USD/MYR to a 6-month high (MYR low) of RM4.2.

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.

How to get Best SGD to MYR Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
