Ringgit closes lower against US Dollar
Last update: 06/12/2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 6 (Bernama) -- The ringgit closed lower against the US dollar for the second consecutive day today on the lack of a positive boost, said a dealer. 

At 6 pm, the ringgit traded at 4.1620/1670 versus the greenback fom Wednesday’s close of 4.1525/1555. 

A dealer said market sentiment was weak in most regional currencies amid an inversion of US bond yield, which signalled a possible economic downturn.

“Apart from that, market participants also are looking towards the outcome of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) meeting in Austria later today,” he said.

The ringgit traded mostly lower against other major currencies.

It was almost flat against the Singapore dollar at 3.0362/0409 against 3.0366/0392 on Wednesday but fell against the yen to 3.6953/6007 from 3.6754/6784.

The domestic unit depreciated against the euro to 4.7197/7262 from 4.7077/7115 and weakened versus the pound to 5.3016/3096 from 5.2832/2891 yesterday.

Starting April the banks have imposed a 50 sen processing fee on top of the 15 sen stamp duty on each cheque. The fee also applies to those applying for a Banker’s Cheque, Bank Draft and Cashier’s Order. Do you think this additional charge is justified?
