Crude palm oil futures rally for third day
Crude palm oil futures on Malaysia’s derivatives exchange rallied for the third consecutive day as investors covered shorts while a weaker dollar prompted funds to flow into commodity markets, trade participants said.
The benchmark December contract on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives ended MYR15 higher at MYR2,077 a metric ton, after moving in MYR2,068-MYR2,100/ton range.
“The CPO market continues to be driven by external markets. It is a free ride for palm oil. Whether buying interest will come in to the market would depend on the strength in prices to move above MYR2,100 convincingly,” said a Malaysia-based exporter.
A rebound in soyoil and crude oil futures kept palm prices steady as well. December soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade settled 41 points higher at 34.26 cents a pound and was trading up 4 points at 34.30 cents a pound by the end of trade on the BMD.
