CPU Futures Prices Close Higher
KUALA LUMPUR: Crude palm oil (CPO) futures contract on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives ended higher yesterday against the backdrop of strengthening crude oil prices.
Phillip Futures Sdn Bhd derivatives product specialist David Ng said scattered bargain hunting also helped prop up prices in light of the recent decline in CPO prices.
“However, traders remained cautious as demand remained subdued and this may limit any upside potential.
“We locate the support level at RM2,100 and immediate resistance at RM2,200,” he said.
