[Geojit Comtrade] Daily report on Natural Rubber: February 27, 2013

MARKET COMMENTARY

Central Govt. decision to revise natural rubber import duty lifted prices in the local market on Tuesday. On NMCE, reversing initial losses, RSS4 rebounded after media reported that the government is certain to raise the import duty to 20 percent or Rs.34, which ever is lower from the existing 20 percent or Rs.20. However, gains were limited owing to underlying weak market fundamentals. Amidst falling prices in the overseas market, high stockpiles in the NMCE accredited warehouses, muted demand and fall in consumption are likely to restrict gains.

On Wednesday, trend is partially mixed in the international natural rubber markets. While TOCOM rubber futures stretched losses, SHFE and AFET rubber futures took a breather after the recent falls. Strengthening yen coupled with renewed worries over Euro Zone crisis weighed on the sentiments. Moreover, burgeoning stockpiles in China kept gains under check.
