Little did many other people know (including Singaporeans) that the Singapore Dollar or SingDollar has also had a wonderful long bull run against the USD since 2002. What’s more, the Singapore Dollar’s gain was not marred by the kind of volatility that AUDUSD and NZDUSD went through between 2008 -2009.

We are looking at a high for the USD per unit trading to 1.8315 SingDollars in 2001, the latter strengthening to 1.1986 in August 2011.

On one hand an appreciating currency is causing the nation to lose its export competitiveness. On the other hand, imported inflation threatens the way of life in the country.
