KUALA LUMPUR: The ringgit opened slightly higher against the US dollar on buying support for the local note, a dealer said.

At 9.01am, the ringgit was quoted at 3.8850/8900 from Monday’s close of 3.8865/8905.

The dealer said the ringgit received some mild buying support from locals ahead of the 14th General Election (GE14).

“The market is positioning itself for a stronger ringgit into the election, so with a base forming around 3.87, the logical move it to reduce shorts and wait for the better level to re-engage long RM positions.

“So, we should expect the US dollar/RM to trade within and continue to revert to the upper levels of the current ranges,” he added. - BERNAMA
