Why is the ringgit losing value?

I READ with interest a report about money changers in Singapore refusing to stock the ringgit because its volatility is causing them to suffer losses. Some are also reportedly refusing to stock the currency because its value is falling almost daily.

I am no economist but as a layman, the ringgit’s depreciation is worrying.
