KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian rubber market extended its downtrend on Friday, amid a mixed performance from the regional rubber futures markets following deepened worries about the global economic outlook and weak China growth data, said a dealer.

"Nevertheless, further losses were capped by a slight recovery in crude oil prices, declines in local natural rubber (NR) production and a weaker ringgit against the US dollar,” she said.




The Department of Statistics Malaysia reported that Malaysia’s NR production decreased by 6.3 per cent to 21,073 tonnes in May 2022 compared with 22,498 tonnes in April, while on year-on-year comparison, it eased by 25.2 per cent from 28,164 tonnes in May 2021.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian Rubber Board’s (MRB) price for Standard Malaysian Rubber 20 (SMR 20) fell by 16 sen to 673.5 sen per kilogramme (kg), while latex-in-bulk was 6.5 sen lower at 514.5 sen a kg.

At 5 pm, MRB’s closing price for SMR 20 stood at 675.5 sen a kg, while latex-in-bulk was at 514.5 sen a kg. - Bernama
