[Geojit Comtrade] Daily report on Natural Rubber: June 19, 2013

MARKET COMMENTARY

Sentiments were muddled in the local natural rubber market on Tuesday. While latex (drc 60%) prices continued to rise, RSS4 steadied. In the spot market, the grade was hovering near its strongest level in about seven months as supplies stayed thin. On NMCE, prices dipped, with the most active July rubber futures dropping 0.6 per cent. Despite supply woes and incessant rains in the major rubber growing areas, gains are likely to remain restricted owing to uncertain macro economic outlook and weak auto sector growth. Widening gap between the prices prevailing in the local and international market is also likely to attract imports. On Wednesday, natural rubber in the overseas market was seen falling. TOCOM rubber futures pared initial gains as investors grew cautious ahead of the US FOMC policy announcement. However, weak yen and rise in crude oil lend support amidst weak fundamentals.
