KUALA LUMPUR: The ringgit ended at its lowest since early January 2017 against the US dollar as risk-off sentiment gathered pace after the US Federal Reserve’s July meeting minutes suggested that the trend toward higher interest rates would continue.
The Fed said inflation remains high despite aggressive rate hikes, reaffirming its plans to continue raising interest rates to combat elevated inflation.
This is keeping the greenback more buoyed, boosting the US Dollar Index by 106.736 points.
The latest data also showed signs of slowing economic activities, with the safe haven currency projected to remain in demand. Investors will closely monitor next week’s Jackson Hole symposium for further clues.,
