[Geojit Comtrade] Daily report on Natural Rubber: December 13, 2013

MARKET COMMENTARY

Natural rubber prices in the Indian market traded rather firm on Thursday. While the underlying trend still stayed weak, RSS4 in the physical market steadied near Rs.151 a kg while on NMCE, the benchmark January rubber futures ended the session a tad higher awaiting fresh triggers for further directional moves. While rising natural rubber prices in the overseas market and fall in domestic production lend support, concerns over demand from the tyre sector continued to weigh on.

As the week’s session culminates, natural rubber prices are seen easing after the last day’s advances. On TOCOM, the commodity is hovering near its 12 week high and probably on its course to post its best weekly gains in three months. Optimism over demand from China and weak Japanese currency buoyed prices.

TECHNICAL VIEW

 RUBBER Jan NMCE

A consolidation is being witnessed currently. As long as 15200- 15100 ranges hold downside, pullbacks are likely. However, it requires clearing the immediate resistance of 15650 for further upside and successful attempts to break 15950 could induce positive sentiments.
