Palm prices must ease to cope with bumper edible oil supplies KUALA LUMPUR: Palm oil prices should ease towards 1,900 ringgit ($594) over the next few weeks in order to stay competitive and recapture market share from rival vegetable oils, leading analyst Dorab Mistry said on Monday, as prospects of bigger supplies looms.Benchmark palm prices were earlier predicted to range between 2,300-2,500 ringgit from end-June, but instead chalked up losses of more than 20 percent over July and August, and on Sept. 2 plunged to a March 2009 low of 1,914 ringgit.Mistry said the drop was caused by projections of record U.S. soybean crops alongside rising supplies of other oilseeds, as well as surprisingly strong crude palm output after an anticipated El Nino weather pattern in Asia did not materialize.Palm prices on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives (BMD) have since pulled up to around 2,110 ringgit, helped by Malaysia's decision to scrap export duties on the crude grade for September and October.The ...

Gains in soy, robust exports lift palm to 1-month high KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian palm oil futures rose to a one-month high on Monday, lifted by gains in US and China soyoil markets and a surge in exports of the tropical oil in the first half of the month.Overseas shipments of Malaysian palm oil between Sept. 1 and Sept. 15 rose 32 percent to 750,425 tonnes compared with the same period a month ago, data from cargo surveyor Intertek Testing Services showed.Demand for crude palm oil ...
NY sugar may drop to 13.43 cents SINGAPORE: New York October sugar may fall further to 13.43 cents per lb, driven by a powerful wave 3.This is the third wave of a five-wave cycle starting from the Aug. 22 high of 16.05 cents. The big drop on Sept. 12 indicates an acceleration of this wave. The support at 13.72 cents, the 300 percent level, looks very weak and may not hold the fall towards the 338.2 percent projection level at 13.43 cents.Resistance ...
