Ringgit Hits New High Against US Dollar

Ringgit Malaysia rose to a new 14-year high of RM2.9432/USD 1 on last Wednesday, July 27. In the other words, Malaysian just needs to pay RM2.94 to buy US$ 1. The appreciation of ringgit is due to the stronger economic fundamentals and better economic growth prospect.

Ringgit Appreciate

I believe that the value of ringgit would further increase. This is because the US debt compared to GDP was still rising despite the end of the QE II. Besides that, there is speculation that Bank Negara Malaysia will raise the overnight policy rate (OPR) to curb inflation also. This will strengthen our ringgit value in the next couple months.

FBM KLCI Ended With New High Again

Today, KLCI broke out of its yesterday high of 1579 to close at 1582 with a volume of 801 million shares. It has been decreased compared to yesterday which recorded 947 million of shares traded. Although it’s on uptrend but I believe that it may change direction or go into sideway if there’s no higher volume of at least 1 billion shares in the following days to set the firm uptrend.


I can see that not all the counters traded at their high. Lately, there’re few counters such as MAS, MUHIBAH, MAA, MYEG all tumbling to their lowest after having experience of a roller coaster ride. Thus, most of the time our KLCI was led higher by finance and plantation stocks.
