Kenyan shilling stable in thin trade



Oct 3 (Reuters) - Kenya's shilling KES= was stable in thin trade on Monday, but its weakening trend was seen resuming in the coming days as foreign-currency supply remained limited, traders said.

At 1115 GMT, the shilling was trading at 120.65/85 versus the U.S. dollar, the same level as its previous close, according to Refinitiv data.

The shilling has hit repeated all-time lows in 2022, weighed down by high oil prices and hard-currency demand from sectors including energy and manufacturing outstripping supply.

It is down more than 6% against the dollar this year.
