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

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

14-December-18: Against a basket of currencies, the US dollar struck an 18-month high in mid-December after negative political and economic developments weighed on rest-of-the-world currencies. At the time of writing, the dollar was showing trade-weighted appreciation of 6 percent for 2018 and was on course to gain in 10 of the year’s 12 months.

The dollar had strengthened to levels near $1.13 against the euro, which suffered due to disappointing eurozone economic data and Brexit-related uncertainties.

Brexit allowed the dollar to gain handsomely against the pound in 2018. On December-11, GBP/USD traded below 1.25 for the first time since early 2017.

The economic slowdown in China has also helped the dollar by creating safe haven flows into the US. The dollar has yet to reach the magic 7-yuan level but remains close to it, at levels near 6.9.

For 2019, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley are both bearish the greenback. The banks remain skeptical over future Fed interest rate hikes and point to a possible US economic downturn in the second half of the year.

Scotiabank is forecasting EUR/USD at $1.30 by 2019 year-end, indicating a potential 13 percent decline in the dollar’s buying power.

Singapore Dollar (SGD) - Market news and forecasts

28-November-18: Principal drivers of the Singapore dollar in 2018 have included global trade concerns and the strong US dollar.

In October, SGD weakened to a 16-month low of S$1.387 per USD before recovering somewhat in November into the low S$1.37s – still a 2.5 percent loss for the year.

SGD fared better against the other majors though, especially the Australian dollar, against which it broke parity. At the time of writing, SGD/AUD was trading precisely at 1.00.

At October’s semi-annual meeting of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the slope of the S$NEER currency band was adjusted slightly upwards, as widely expected, although the width and centre of the band were left unchanged. What many consider to be a more hawkish bias within the MAS is the result of improved outlooks for inflation and the labour market.

In November, ING warned against holding second-tier currencies from small, open, trade-dependent countries like Singapore because of its suspicion that trade tensions between the US and China would resurface heading into year-end.
