1 Western Union Business Solutions Currency Outlook January 2015 business.westernunion.com.au

2 What s coming up Steven Dooley Currency Strategist APAC 2

3 History in the making! These are historic times US interest rates are one of the most important measures in the world. We have never had a period in which the key global rate has been steady for seven years and certainly not at zero. The US s ZIRP has caused massive moves: gold to almost $2000, US equities to all time highs, property markets to record levels How will the world cope with the end of easy money? (Hint: Very badly. It always has before.) 3

4 SGD: Shifting Sands The Singapore dollar has been one of the best performing currencies over the last 30 years. Only JPY and CHF have done better And why not? Singapore growth story has been magnificent The Singapore dollar has always been unique because the Singapore government manages monetary policy via the exchange rate (rather than interest rates) 4

5 USDSGD since 1981 USD/SGD Exchange Rate; Source: Reuters

6 SGD recently The US dollar has been the best-performing currency in 2014 as markets look towards to the first US interest rate increase in eight years, sometime in 2015 The Singapore dollar has also weakened after a series of poor Chinese numbers, including last week s disappointing Chinese import numbers and poor industrial production results Western Union Holdings, Inc.

8 What drives the SGD? Increasingly, global trade is the driver of the SGD. As global trade drives SGD, we can identify early signals in Singapore balance of payments Singapore dollar now acts partly as an Asian safe haven but also as an proxy for Chinese growth 8

9 What does the market say? Reuters FX Poll of 22 currency analysts has found that most expect the USDSGD to stay steady or rally over the next 12 months Market analysts still have a broad range of forecasts with a 10-cent range from low to top This is a sign of uncertainty 9

10 What s next? Most analysts expect further USD gains as the Federal Reserve starts to raise interest rates. The market has started pricing in higher US rates towards Thus, a meaningful rally in USDSGD in late 2014 is widely expected The usual movement is 9%. If so, a move to 1.45 by the end of the year would not be unusual Technically, a break out of the consolidation pattern, above sets up a long-term move to

17 Japan Is Japan is a 25-year recession? Deflation can t be stopped Major pressure as BoJprints money 17

18 EUROPE 18

20 UK UK recovering well Like the US, FIFO Higher UK rates should support 20

21 Switzerland Weighed down by Euro s falls Pushed higher versus Euro SNB intervening in market 21

22 REGION 22

23 Malaysia Likely to struggle as US rates climb Region s major oil exporter 23

24 Indonesia US rates also hurt, but more vulnerable Emerging markets most vulnerable 24
