Although Australia and Singapore are close neighbors, the AUD/SGD is not a currency that often features in currency trading analysis. As the economy in Singapore continues to westernize we see this trend changing as investors move more and more into Asian currencies in the future. The SGD has historically been closely pegged to the GPB and then the USD. Now it is loosely pegged to a collection of trade weighted undisclosed currencies. It often loosely follows movements in the USD.
