KUALA LUMPUR: The ringgit opened higher against the US dollar this morning as the greenback retreated from recent gains and amid positive local sentiment ahead of the announcement on Malaysia's 2017 gross domestic product (GDP) figure, dealers said.

At 9.00 am, the ringgit stood at 3.9350/9380 against the greenback from Monday's close of 3.9370/9400.
