Rubber mart ends mixed
The Malaysian rubber market ended mixed in quiet trading on lack of buying interest, dealers said.
The bearish performance was also in tandem with the easier trend on the Tokyo Commodities Exchange resulting from the stronger yen and weaker oil prices.
At noon, the Malaysian Rubber Board's official physical price for tyre-grade SMR20 rose half-a-sen to 762 sen a kg while latex-in-bulk slipped 2.5 sen to 557 sen a kg.
The unofficial closing price for tyre-grade SMR20 fell 2.5 sen to 761.5 sen a kg while latex-in-bulk eased 3.5 sen to 555 sen a kg.-- Bernama
