USD/SGD, USD/IDR, Singapore Dollar, Indonesian Rupiah - Talking Points

  • US Dollar could reverse dominant uptrend versus SGD
  • But USD/SGD fading momentum warns of a turn higher
  • Indonesian Rupiah still awaiting key breakouts vs USD

Trade all the major global economic data live as it populates in the economic calendar and follow live coverage for key events listed in theDailyFX Webinars. We’d love to have you along.

Singapore Dollar Technical Outlook

Against the US Dollar, the Singapore Dollar is sitting at a key rising support channel from the beginning of 2018 – red lines below. As USD/SGD pressures this psychological area, the dominant uptrend that has prevailed for the past roughly two years is at risk. A daily close under could pave the way for a reversal of this lasting dynamic, especially if the US and China continue inching closer towards a trade deal.

USD/SGD Weekly Chart

US Dollar Forecast: USD/SGD Uptrend at Risk as IDR Eyes Breakout

Zooming in to the daily chart, USD/SGD is experiencing positive RSI divergence as it attempts a breakout lower. This is a signal of fading momentum to the downside. At times, this can precede a turn higher or translate into consolidation. The latter has been the prevailing outcome as of late. A continuation of the near-term downtrend would entail taking out the June lows (1.3513 – 1.3521).

Otherwise, overturning the downtrend would place the focus on a potential falling resistance line from late August – blue line below. Getting there also involves taking out the psychological barrier between 1.3609 and 1.3624. A daily close above this area could open the door to revisiting highs from October which range from 1.3836 to 1.3879.

Indonesian Rupiah Technical Outlook

Meanwhile the Indonesian Rupiah continues to consolidate between key psychological barriers. On the USD/IDR weekly chart below, favoring the downtrend is falling resistance from May – red line. Resuming declines involves taking out horizontal support which is a range between 1.3848 to 13923. That may open the door to testing 13705 which is the March 2018 low.
