Quick Summary AI Powered

KUALA LUMPUR: The ringgit opened marginally higher against the US dollar today despite fragile market sentiments over expectations of an aggressive monetary tightening by the United States Federal Reserve (Fed) that would take a toll on the economy, a dealer said.

It, however, depreciated against the British pound to 5.3951/4006 from 5.3864/3901 previously.
