KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 23 — The ringgit extended its earlier losses to end slightly weaker against the US dollar today on continued technical correction after its recent gains, a dealer said.
At 6pm, the ringgit was quoted at 4.1100/1170 against the greenback from 4.1060/1110 yesterday.
However, the outlook for the ringgit remained bullish as the US Federal Reserve (Fed) trimmed the longer-term rate view during its two-day meeting.
He said the Fed also projected a less aggressive rise in rates next year and in 2018, and cut its longer-run interest rate forecast to 2.9 per cent from 3.0 per cent.
Meanwhile, the ringgit was traded higher against a basket of major currencies.
The ringgit strengthened against the euro to 4.6085/6168 from 4.6114/6187 yesterday and rose against the Singapore dollar to 3.0256/0319 from 3.0303/0362 on Thursday.
It strengthened against the British pound to 5.3475/3587 from 5.3665/3735 yesterday and appreciated against the yen to 4.0721/0795 from 4.0750/0816 previously. — Bernama
