[Geojit Comtrade] Daily report on Natural Rubber: January 23, 2014

MARKET COMMENTARY

Sentiments stayed rather muddled in the local natural rubber market. On Wednesday, RSS4 in the physical market traded quite steady with a mild negative bias while on NMCE, the grade was seen climbing up during the afternoon session to culminate the session nearly one per cent up. While the broad trend remained weak, it seems investors are probably waiting for fresh direction cues.

Natural rubber in the overseas market is in a negative turf on Thursday. A weak China manufacturing PMI has aggravated further concerns over the demand from the top consumer. The preliminary estimates for the month of January released earlier today showed a contraction in factory activity for the first time six months. However, concerns that output from the top consumer may decline from the top producer, Thailand, owing to political unrest may lend support.

TECHNICAL VIEW

 RUBBER Feb NMCE

With prices holding 15200-15100 ranges downside, pullbacks were witnessed in the previous session. However, it is mandatory to break and sustain above 15550 for further upsides. Else, range bound moves inside 15550-15100 may be seen and slippage past 15100 may have the potential to revisit the recent lows.
