KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 22  -- The ringgit closed the week on a weaker note against the US dollar on lack of buying interest as uncertainties continued in the US-China trade negotiations, said a dealer.

At 6 pm, the ringgit settled at 4.1700/1750 against the greenback from yesterday’s close of 4.1680/1710.

The dealer said the fall in the local note was in line with other Asian currencies, with investors’ numbness over the US-China trade deal "optimism" continued to weigh on market sentiment, causing investors to stay on the sidelines.
