MUMBAI (Commodity Online): With the wintering season drawing to a close in northern Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, futures of natural rubber in TOCOM was seen trading down as farmers in the producing countries return to tapping. This may increase the supply of natural rubber as the days advance.

“I’m watching to see if Thailand will take additional steps to bolster prices,” Hideshi Matsunaga, an analyst at broker ACE Koeki Co. in Tokyo, said to Bloomberg. A subdued Yen which in fact enhances the appeal of the Yen denominated commodity contributed to retreat.
