palm oil futures prices ended lower yesterday prompted by profit-taking
activities as players were cautious ahead of the release of December
export data, dealers said.
Cargo surveyors Intertek Testing
Services and Societe Generale de Surveillance will unveil December 1-15
Malaysian palm oil exports data today.
At the close, December
2010 and January 2011 slipped RM50 each to RM3,650 a tonne and RM3,720
respectively. February 2011 eased RM42 to RM3,680 tonne and March 2011
