Asian Rubber Futures End Mixed


Benchmark Tokyo rubber future prices ended lower Tuesday, weighed down by a firmer yen, while the rubber market in Shanghai closed the session slightly higher.

The yen on Tuesday tiptoed close to 100 to the U.S. dollar for the first time since shortly after the U.K.’s vote to leave the European Union, with interest-rate moves in the U.S. and Japan on the minds of investors. The stronger yen makes the yen-denominated commodity more expensive.

In China, rubber contracts moved higher, supported by a broad improvement in the country’s agricultural commodities.
