[Geojit Comtrade] Daily report on Natural Rubber: January 24, 2014

MARKET COMMENTARY

Sentiments stayed rather muddled in the local natural rubber market. RSS4 in the physical market firmed up on Thursday while on NMCE, range bound trades were witnessed. The benchmark February rubber futures were varying in tight ranges last day and finally ended the session 0.36 per cent down. Following the recent sharp plunge, it seems investors are looking for fresh signals for further directional moves. In the mean time, natural rubber in the overseas market is trading mixed too though the broad underlying sentiments remained bearish. While SHFE rubber futures ticked up, TOCOM rubber futures stretched losses and are probably heading to post losses for the sixth successive week. Strengthening yen and concerns over demand continued to ponder upon the market.
