Quotes from Standard Chartered:
-We recommend selling SGD-THB via 6M forward outright, following the extraordinary inter-meeting policy easing by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
-While the SGD NEER still has an appreciation stance, we like selling the SGD against the Thai baht (THB), a strongly non-consensus view, and upgrade the shortterm recommended FX weighting on the THB to Overweight from Neutral.
-In ou rview, Thailand is a significant winner from (1) the collapse in oil and (2) more specifically, the fall in the Japanese yen (JPY). Japan is Thailand's second-largest trading partner and the largest single source of Thai imports. Low inflation and wage growth, coupled with a weak JPY, is helping to make Thailand more competitive.
