ASEAN Technical Outlook – USD/PHP, USD/SGD, USD/IDR, USD/MYR

  • Most ASEAN FX are attempting bold bullish moves against the US Dollar
  • USD/IDR, USD/MYR and USD/SGD eye dominant downtrend acceleration
  • USD/PHP faces critical support that may open the door to more declines

We released our Q1 forecasts for currencies like the US Dollar in the DailyFX Trading Guides page

USD/IDR Technical Analysis – Dominant Downtrend Accelerates

Since breaking under the rising trend line from January, the Indonesian Rupiah has accelerated its appreciation against the US Dollar as expected. Recently, USD/IDR achieved a daily close with confirmation under former resistance at 14,215. This has opened the door to resuming the dominant downtrend. The next critical support area is a horizontal range in between 13,923 and 13,848. Falling through it would open the door to testing 13,655 afterwards.

USD/MYR Technical Analysis – Key Support Broken

Like what we have seen in USD/IDR, the Malaysian Ringgit is also making fair progress against the US Dollar and more gains may be in store ahead. This is because support has been broken under 4.1270 with a near-term falling resistance line keeping the downtrend together. This has exposed December 2017 resistance/August 2018 support next. Falling through that would then open the door to testing 4.0710.

USD/SGD Technical Analysis – Consolidation Turns into Dominant Downtrend

It seems that the Singapore Dollar is transitioning away from consolidation mode and into appreciation against its US counterpart. A falling channel is now guiding USD/SGD lower. The pair does sit right on the border of channel support. This area is also closely aligned with a horizontal area of support between 1.35559 and 1.35284. Clearing it would open the door to testing 1.34897 which was former resistance in May 2018.

USD/PHP Technical Analysis – Downtrend Eyes Next Test

Meanwhile the Philippine Peso is on the verge of testing its next critical support area. USD/PHP prices eye near-term horizontal range support between 52.15 and 52.10. Descending through that would expose the May 2018 lows around 51.59 in its dominant downtrend from October of the same year.
