Singapore Dollar Technical Outlook
The Singapore Dollar is pressuring the lower boundary of its consolidative range against the US Dollar, opening the door to a bounce or breakout. This floor in USD/SGD sits at 1.3872 with the ceiling at 1.3993. Prices have also cautiously pushed under the 20-Day Simple Moving Average (SMA), setting up for a near-term bearish outlook.
These technical achievements could pave the way for the pair to retest June lows which could make for a key zone of support between 1.3760 – 1.3805. Otherwise, a bounce places the focus on falling resistance from March – red line on the daily chart below.

Indonesian Rupiah Technical Outlook
The Indonesian Rupiah is losing ground to the US Dollar. Recently, USD/IDR pushed above the 50-day SMA after bouncing off the 20-day SMA. A confirmatory upside close could shift the medium-term technical outlook to bullish as price face the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at 14773.
Yet, negative RSI divergence does show that upside momentum is fading and that can at times precede a turn lower. Do keep in mind that further weakness in IDR could result in the Bank of Indonesia stepping in to stabilize its currency.

Malaysian Ringgit Technical Outlook
The Malaysian Ringgit may gain some more ground against the US Dollar after USD/MYR fell through the 20-day SMA. Prices are testing immediate support at 4.2600 which if taken out, opens the door to testing the key zone of support between 4.2350 – 4.2450.
A daily close under this range could open the door to resuming the top from March where prices established resistance between 4.4390 – 4.4480. In the event of a turn higher instead, keep a close eye on falling resistance for signs of a reversal – red line on the daily chart below.

Philippine Peso Technical Outlook
The Philippine Peso has been idling at its highest price against the US Dollar since 2017. Key support in USD/PHP sits immediately below as a zone between 49.26 – 49.37, this zone is a floor that held 3 years ago on multiple occasions and could be a pivotal point for the pair.
Immediate resistance sits above at 49.50 which is the 38.2% Fibonacci extension. A bounce and push above this price could open the door to testing the ceiling of the downtrend since March – red area on the daily chart below. Otherwise, clearing support opens the door to downtrend resumption towards the 61.8% extension at 48.93.
