KUALA LUMPUR: The crude palm oil futures contract on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives closed lower yesterday on profit-taking after the recent rally.
A trader said the downside was somewhat capped due to positive sentiment still persisting as players expect export demand for palm oil to improve.
Chartwise, the RM2,635-level remains as the immediate support.
The active contract month of May 2014 finished RM24 lower at RM2,700 a tonne, June 2014 dipped RM39 to RM2,661 a tonne, July 2014 eased RM37 to RM2,647 a tonne and August 2014 ended RM36 lower at RM2,638 a tonne.
Turnover improved to 40,587 lots from 39,183 lots on Wednesday, while open interest rose to 223,959 contracts from Wednesday’s 221,196 contracts. Bernama
