The USDSGD is an exotic currency pair representing the United States dollar to the Singapore dollar. In this pair, the USD is the base currency, and the SGD is the counter currency meaning that prices are quoted in terms of the Singapore dollar. The SGD represents a highly developed free-market economy characterized by stable prices and an open, corruption-free environment. It has become a speculative investment haven known for its high-interest rates, higher growth rate, and fewer capital controls. With both countries being major industrial nations, their currencies are affected by the state of their manufacturing sectors, both at home and abroad. In relation to the US dollar, the SGD trades under a linked exchange rate system.
