KUALA LUMPUR,. The ringgit traded marginally lower against the US dollar in early trade today on lack of demand.
At 9.05am, the local unit traded at 4.1310/1360 against the greenback from 4.1300/1350 recorded yesterday.
A dealer said there was the likelihood of US dollar weakness due to thin holiday trade.
“The US dollar traded lower against a basket of currencies yesterday in thin holiday-impacted trading,” he added.
