Profit Takings & Lower Data Sinks CPO
CPO succumbs to broad-based selling as investors continued to take money off the table following the previous day’s rally to the market’s highest levels in more than two years coupled with news of lower exports and lack of demand, dealers said.
Traders opted to book profits and square off positions ahead of the year-end holidays, following Tuesday's intraday rally.

The benchmark February contract on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives ended MYR11 lower at MYR3,669 a metric ton, after a volatile trading session with prices swinging in a range of MYR3,609-MYR3,702.

"Output for the first 15 days in many parts of peninsular Malaysia has plummeted. That along with weather issue will be the catalyst for another rally in palm oil prices."
"The weaker export numbers were another factor that drove palm oil prices lower," said a Kuala Lumpur-based trading executive.
"Any dip (in the palm oil market) would be an opportunity to buy."

Open interest on the BMD was 87,918 lots, versus 88,997 lots Tuesday. One lot is equivalent to 25 tons. A total of 20,825 lots of CPO were traded versus 24,l80 lots Tuesday.
