12 Jul 2013 11:19

KUALA LUMPUR, July 12 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian rubber market closed mixed today in quiet trading resulting from profit-taking activities, dealers said.

A dealer said the lower market today was also in line with the downtrend on the Tokyo Commodity Exchange. At noon, the Malaysian Rubber Board's official physical price for tyre-grade SMR 20 gained seven sen to 696 sen a kg, and later-in-bulk increased one sen to 524.50 sen a kg. The unofficial sellers' closing price for tyre-grade SMR 20 shed six sen to 693 sen a kg and latex-in-bulk dropped 1.5 sen to 524 sen a kg.
