Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however 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 comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.


Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Singapore Dollar and United States Dollar

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 USD, you should pay attention to both Singapore Dollar and United States Dollar news and forecasts.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

In April, the Monetary Authority of Singapore said for the first time in six years that it would allow the Singapore dollar to appreciate. Unconventionally, the MAS manages monetary policy by managing the value of SGD. By allowing the currency to rise, it will effectively tighten policy in response to robust economic growth – 4.3% in the fourth quarter.

USD/SGD has, for the most part, followed the broader market for dollar pairs in 2018. The pair reached 1.3 in January for the first time since 2014 but since then has rallied. It was back to 1.4 in early May.

In early May, for the first time in nearly two years, the Singapore dollar broke parity with the Australian dollar. When last seen, AUD/SGD was at 0.998.

Based on a global macro model and analyst expectations, the team at TradingEconomics.com is forecasting USD/SGD at 1.37 at the end of April 2019.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

The US dollar is thriving in 2018. The world’s reserve currency had a dismal 2017, during which it shed 10 percent of its value. The Dollar Index’s move to a 1-year high of 96.30 in mid-August reclaimed around 40 percent of last year’s losses.

The dollar is the second-best performing major this year, bettered only by the Japanese yen. As safe havens, both currencies have been sought by investors – they are deemed the least risky among major international currencies. Investors have become more risk averse in recent months following chaos in emerging markets, led by Turkey and Argentina, and Washington’s massive tariffs on imported goods, which threaten global trade. More cause for dollar optimism came in August when data showed US core inflation at a 10-year high.

Dollar strength has pushed EUR/USD below 1.15 for the first time in a year, GBP/USD into the 1.27s, USD/CHF towards parity, and NZD/USD hurtles towards 0.65.

In August, SEB was forecasting end-of-September rates of: EUR/USD, 1.1; GBP/USD, 1.22; AUD/USD, 0.72.

Why can't I just get the same SGD/USD market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The SGD/USD mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google or the News, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the SGD / USD was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.


When you look up the current Singapore Dollar to United States Dollar exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

Getting a great SGD to USD mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.

You can use our SGD to USD currency converter to calculate equivalent amounts in each currency using the latest mid-market exchange rates. Then choose your transaction type for specific Singapore Dollar cross rates and reviews of leading foreign exchange providers versus the Banks.
