KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia's central bank has asked foreign banks in the country to refrain from trading the ringgit in offshore nondeliverable forwards as the currency continues to weaken.

In a statement on Wednesday, the central bank said it had made a request "through onshore banks that any non-resident banks which transact in the forex market to attest that they are not and will not engage in NDF-related transaction."
