KUALA LUMPUR: Crude palm oil futures rebounded to close higher on bargain-buying at a lower level.
Phillip Futures product specialist David Ng said the gain on soyabean oil prices on the Chicago Board of Trade and good export demand were also supporting the prices.
However, he said the stronger ringgit against the US dollar limited the upside.
