There is a good possibility that there will be an increase in volatility along with sharp price fluctuations in the near future. Our volume indicators reflect volume flowing into and out of SGD= at a relatively equal pace (neutral). Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on SGD= and have had this outlook for the last 1 periods.
