KUALA LUMPUR: The ringgit ended lower against the US dollar as oil prices declined, and the pressure was exacerbated by growing anticipations of an aggressive interest rate hike decision by the United States Federal Reserve tomorrow, said an analyst.
At 6 pm, the local currency fell to 4.5585/5595 against the greenback from 4.5495/5515 at Monday’s close.
OANDA Europe senior market analyst, Craig Erlam said the central banks, including the Bank of England, the Swiss National Bank and the South African Reserve Bank, have been lining up this week to deliver huge rate hikes as the desperate fight against inflation continues.
"The Bank of Japan will also meet on Thursday but the topic of conversation will likely be how to generate sustainable inflation and the spiralling yen,” he said in a note.,
