US Dollar, USD/SGD, USD/THB, USD/PHP, USD/IDR – ASEAN Technical Analysis

  • US Dollar remains fairly quiet against most ASEAN FX
  • USD/SGD range trading in focus, USD/THB may climb
  • USD/PHP eyeing triangle, USD/IDR momentum fading

Singapore Dollar Technical Outlook

The US Dollar continues to struggle in making further upside progress against the Singapore Dollar despite USD/SGD pushing above a falling zone of resistance from May. The pair has been consolidating between the 1.3527 – 1.3504 and 1.3375 – 1.3389 inflection zones. Still, the 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) could maintain the dominant downside focus as it behaves as critical resistance. Pushing above this could open the door to revisiting peaks from October. Otherwise, clearing immediate support exposes current 2021 lows.

Thai Baht Technical Outlook

The US Dollar closed at its highest against the Thai Baht since early October. USD/THB extended gains after a bullish crossover occurred between the 200-day and 20-day SMAs, as expected. In addition, the October 23rd high has been taken out at 31.336, exposing the 31.64 inflection point that consists of August and September highs – see chart below. While that has opened the door to further gains, negative RSI divergence shows that upside momentum is fading. That may precede a turn lower, placing the focus on the 20-day SMA.

Philippine Peso Technical Outlook

The US Dollar is attempting to push above what appears to be a Descending Triangle chart pattern against the Philippine Peso. This could hint at further USD/PHP gains ahead. But, the true test of this will likely come from the 48.82 – 48.99 resistance zone. Clearing this area could open the door to revisiting levels from July. Still, prices are staying very close to the 200-day SMA with key support below at 48.35 – 48.40. Breaking under this zone exposes lows from February.
