KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian palm futures reversed early gains on Wednesday in anticipation of tightening production, although the rise was capped by a report highlighting the vegetable oil’s fading premium against rival oils.

Palm oil’s rare premium over rival rapeseed oil and sunflower oil is likely to be short-lived and should slip into a discount once top producer Indonesia eases export curbs after Ramadan, industry participants told Reuters on Tuesday.

The benchmark palm oil contract for June delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange gained 22 ringgit, or 0.6%, to 3,709 ringgit ($839.90) a tonne.

Palm rose for a third straight session to its highest closing in one week.

Dalian’s most-active soyoil contract rose 1.1%, while its palm oil contract gained 1.2%. Soyoil prices on the Chicago Board of Trade were down 0.04%.

Palm oil eases after 2-day rally on fading premium worries

Palm oil is affected by price movements in related oils as they compete for a share in the global vegetable oils market.

Production in the world’s second-largest producer is expected to decline after a miller’s association estimated a 22.9% decline in output during March 1-25, analysts said.

Exports from Malaysia during March 1-25 jumped between 11.4% and 19.8% from the same period in February, according to cargo surveyors’ data this week.

Top producer Indonesia plans to set its crude palm oil reference price for the April 1-15 period at $898.29 per tonne, Musdhalifah Machmud, a senior official at the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs, said on Tuesday.
