KUALA LUMPUR: The ringgit is likely to continue its decline against the US dollar this week due to higher inflation, says an *** yst.
SPI Asset Management managing partner Stephen Innes said the ringgit may also struggle to hold onto gains due to various negative risk events, namely the concern about the increase in Covid-19 cases in China.
“Given the ringgit’s strong correlation with the Chinese yuan, the ringgit could trend weak as traders headgear for the possible regional stock market outflow that may trigger when United States house speaker Nancy Pelosi visits Taiwan in August,” he told Bernama.,
He said the market also will be heading into another jumbo ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting next week and the US Federal Reserve is expected to raise rates by another 75 basis points on July 27.
“This could keep the ringgit grounded until the FOMC is out of the way.
“My fear is that we could be moving into a short global recession that could hurt Asia exporters. So, the sum of all this negativity has me erring defensively,” he said.
Looking at the volatility, Innes said the ringgit is likely to trade within the RM4.44.75 to RM4.45.75 range this week.
