The sluggish trend in soya oil continued today on weak buying support even as KLC closed higher. Bearish sentiment in soya oil has mainly been attributed to rise in buying support in cotton and super palmolein and palm oil which are being sold in Indore mandis at lower prices, said Mukesh Purohit, a local soya oil manufacturer.
Contrary to prices in the physical market, soya oil closed higher in the futures market with December contracts on the NBOT closing at Rs 712.50 for 10 kg.
On the NCDEX also, soya oil futures closed higher with December and January contracts closing at Rs 720.35 (up Rs 3.35) and Rs 711 for 10 kg (up Rs 4.25).
