“To tackle slowing growth the MAS, who tend to enact monetary policy within currency markets due to their trade-dependent economy, changed policy from a path of appreciation for their currency versus a basket of peers, to a 'neutral policy stance' of 0% appreciation, something last seen at the height of the financial crisis in October 2008.”
