LONDON: Palm oil prices on the European vegetable oils market were slightly higher on nearby positions on Tuesday, boosted partly by gains in Chicago soybean oil futures.
Sellers raised asking prices for crude palm oil for August and September shipment by up to $5.00 per tonne, also reflecting a higher close on Malaysian palm oil futures.
At 1611 GMT, the most active CBOT soyoil futures contract was up 1.7 percent at 29.34 cents as the market extended its recent rebound after a prolonged slide during June and the first half of July.
EU rapeoil was offered between five euros per tonne up and two euros down from Tuesday with nearby positions showing strength but deferreds unchanged to slightly weaker.
Lauric oils were lower, weakened by a stronger dollar and a continued lack of buying interest at current levels. EUROPEAN VEG OILS TRADES
