 RUBBER Dec NMCE Even as the trend stays weak, now it requires clearing 17100-17060 to continue the down trend possibly towards 16900-16800 region initially or more. If prices hold the support at 17100-17060 levels, could call for a brief pullback towards 17400 or more to 17650. However, sustained trades above 17650 may diminish the prevailing negative bias.
