Malaysia Derivatives Exchange >>> CRUDE PALM OIL FUTURES

Bargain Hunters & Export Data Lift Palm Oil Higher MYR17
The benchmark January contract on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives exchange ended MYR17higher at MYR3,370 a metric ton, after prices fell as much as 2.2% to an intraday low of MYR3,278/ton whereby staging a moderate recovery from last week’s slump with support from improved export demand and bargain-huntins.

The palm oil market was trading mostly in the red in early trade due to sharp declines in Chicago soyoil and a stronger dollar, before recovering on the back of positive export data.

Shipments to China rose 80% to 200,030 tons, while sales to the European Union rose 55% to 138,783 tons during the Nov. 1-15 period.

Palm oil shipments to China rose in part because some October shipments were delayed to November due to the week-long holiday break last month in China, traders said.
The dollar-denominated January CPO contract on Globex was $6.75 higher at $1,084.50/ton at 0929 GMT.
