Edible oils market ruled firm on Monday in line with price rise by refiners. Undercurrent remained positive on expectation of higher festival demand and tracking extended gains in Malaysian palm oil futures.

Shailesh Kataria of Riddhi Brokers said due to Ramzan, participation of brokers and traders were very thin. There were no cues from futures markets as they were also closed. Under current of the market will remain firm on expectation of higher festival demands coming days. Deficit monsoon across the country, slow progress of standing crops in the field due to lack of rain water, concern about lower yield and fear of possible delay in arrivals of new crops by a month will support the overall sentiments. Shortage of ready stocks and higher price in Gujarat has increased their buying of palmolein in Mumbai last week.

In Saurashtra, groundnut oil extended gains on tight supply of nuts for crushing. In Rajkot, price for Telia tin was higher at Rs 1975 (Rs 1,960) and loose 10 kg was Rs 1,300 (Rs 1,290).

In Mumbai nominal rates (Rs/10 kg) were groundnut oil Rs 1,250, soya refined oil Rs 746, sunflower exp. ref. Rs 705, sunflower ref. Rs 770, rapeseed ref. oil Rs 890, rapeseed expeller ref. Rs 860, cotton ref. oil Rs 748 and palmolein Rs 612.

According to traders, uptrend will likely to continue in the soya oil on strong buying support ahead of the festival season in the coming days. Soya seeds ruled steady at Rs 4,450 a quintal. Plant deliveries in soyabean traded lower at Rs 4,450-4,500 a quintal on weak demand from the crushers.
