How does the Australian dollar trade against the Malaysian ringgit historically?

The Malaysian ringgit and the Australian dollar were introduced roughly around the same time in the late 1960s. Both currencies replaced its British currency, with 0.8 AUD worth 1 GBP and 8.57 MYR worth 1 British pound.

In 1997, a financial crisis erupted in Asia. The Aussie dollar strengthened and went from 2.079857 per ringgit in 1997 to 3.05344 per ringgit in 2005. With government corruption and the election of Prime Minister Najib Razak in 2009, the ringgit has remained consistently weak against the Australian dollar — between 2.8 to 3.3 ringgits per Aussie dollar.

What affects AUD to MYR exchange rates?

There are five factors that affect how the Australian dollar trades with the Malaysian ringgit: the country’s GDP, retail sales, industrial production, relative inflation rates and trade balances.

Less aggressive factors are consumer confidence, the strength of other currencies, investor speculation and day-to-day news about natural disasters, elections and new government policies.

Bottom line

When exchanging Australian dollars for Malaysian ringgits, find a provider that offers two-sided quotes to understand the spread they charge. If they show you only the buy or sell rate — but not both — consider looking elsewhere. The closer to the mid-market rate the better the deal.
