Ringgit's trend vs the US dollar is still upward

According to an observer, the ringgit maintained its upward trajectory and opened stronger vs. the US dollar today as both the dollar index and US Treasury yields fell to their lowest levels in months.

The ringgit strengthened against the US dollar at 9 a.m., closing at 4.6690/6725 on Tuesday.

The US dollar dropped, according to managing partner Stephen Innes of SPI Asset Management, after US Federal Reserve (Fed) governor Christopher Waller made dovish comments on Tuesday.

According to reports, Waller expressed his growing confidence that policy is currently positioned to slow the economy and return inflation to 2.0%.

According to Innes, the Fed member's dovish stance is a major confirmation bias for a market that has already positioned itself for rate reductions in the upcoming year.

"The yield on the US Treasury's two-year note, which is correlated with the expectations for Fed Funds interest rates, dropped to 4.75 percent, the lowest level since August.
