    • How do interest rates and economic stability impact Forex Trading?

      The Forex Trading market can be an interesting bet due to its potential for volatile price swings, offering opportunity for large profits. However, you need to make informed decisions based on root analysis. This involves a couple of factors impacting national currency values and the market as a whole. Interest rates and economic stability are two such aspects.

      It is important to study the current, past, and potential interest rates, as they could affect the value. The Central Bank sets the interest rates, and can adjust them after studying the market. It is important use all the information available to anticipate changes in interest rates, or to anticipate the interest rate differential.

      Economic stability, on the other hand is defined as a state for a nation characterised by minor fluctuations in output growth, coupled with a consistently low inflation rate. Stable economies usually attract investors, as they have low risk levels. Thus, it becomes important to take note of economic predictions, political and current events. This might be one of the factors directly impacting the value of currency.

    • DBS and UOB fight it out in the mortgage loan space

      Much to the advantage of home buyers in Singapore, two of the top banks offering home loans at competitive interest rates to Singaporeans, DBS and UOB, are combating to provide better interest rates to customers.

      Both DBS and UOB are vying to offer lower interest rates, with an intention to capitalise on the two new property launches taking place this year. The stake here is 1,225 homes from the two launches that are due to take place.

      DBs and OCBC, in order to take competition to a new high, are offering a near-0% rate on their Fixed Deposit – Home Loan Rate packages. The current rates offered by DBS and UOB are 0.6% and 0.65% respectively.

      The 0% spread is applicable until the time the property receives its temporary occupation permit, which usually takes about three to four years. Also, DBS’s provision of 0.6% is aligned with its 18-month FHR package while UOB’s 0.65% is aligned with its 36-month FHR package.

      After the property receives its temporary occupation limit, the DBS loan spread is 1% and in the case of UOB, it is 0.9% for the first year, and 0.95% from the second year onwards.

    • 42% rise in the Cash Management Revenue of UOB

      Even in the present volatile and unstable economy, UOB has seen a significant increase in their cash management revenue with an increase of 42% this year. This increase has been recorded in the first 6 months of this year in comparison to the same period one year ago. This is primarily because of the increasing interest of a large number of clients wanting to invest in Asia, particularly South East Asia and Greater China Region as stated by the group head of the transaction banking of UOB, So Lay Hua.

      Due to the increasing expansion of these clients across the region, necessary cash management structures are being put in place so that they can sear through businesses and market cycles. In the last year, the revenue that UOB incurred from their global transaction banking alone contributed to one third of UOB’s wholesale banking revenue.
