“Some of the most hard-pressed currencies against the US dollar, which included the ringgit, Turkish lira, South African rand and Philippine peso, were well bid. “These currencies that have been particularly weak against the US dollar actually benefited from the risk-on trade, which is the term used in buying the currencies of the emerging markets,” he added. Following the recent rally, Pong foresees the ringgit will probably continue to strengthen against the US dollar until the end of the month. Analysts noted that the ringgit will continue to be supported by Bank Negara’s stabilising measures, including the conversion of 75% of export proceeds into ringgit, as well as the comfortable international reserves level. Meanwhile, the arbitration settlement agreement between 1Malaysia Development Bhd and Abu Dhabi’s International Petroleum Investment Co is also seen as a boost for the local market.

Brazilian military police in front of Congress hurled tear gas Tuesday at thousands of indigenous protesters, who responded by throwing spears and shooting arrows as a peaceful demonstration turned into chaos. There were no reports of any injuries on either side. Police said protesters got too close to a large fountain of water on the esplanade in front of Congress in Brasilia, Brazil's capital. "The Indians did not comply with the agreement they made with police" about the boundaries of the protest, a police statement said. "They were threatening to invade Congress." Demonstrators denied that, saying police were just looking for an excuse to remove them. They said that police had agreed the protesters could come close to the fountain and that the march was peaceful. "Unfortunately, the brute force of the police caused this," said Kleber Karipuna, a protester who came to Brasilia from the northern state of Amapa.

And if the fix isnt permanent but something more temporary, Democrats may have to give concessions in future negotiations to ensure the subsidies remain, they argue. Republicans sued the Obama administration last year over the subsidy payments, arguing they were unconstitutional. The GOP won an initial ruling in the courts, but the decision was put on hold pending an Obama administration appeal, ensuring the subsidies kept flowing. The Trump administration must decide next month what to do with the lawsuit. Hoyer’s comments put on display a Democratic dispute that has been simmering behind the scenes during the funding talks. Democrats, including Hoyer, are in agreement that a permanent funding for the subsidies would be an ideal addition to the funding bill. But how far to take the fight, and at what cost, is the issue. “Cost-sharing subsidies are the law.
