The rubber prices declined on Monday. In spot, the market lost ground mainly on selling from dealers and growers following the sharp losses on the NMCE. Sentiments were generally bearish amidst another weak closing in international markets. The volumes were comparatively better.

The volumes totalled 8776 lots and open interest 5327 lots. The turnover was Rs 194.02 crores.

RSS 3 (spot) slipped to Rs 229.33 (230.64) a kg at Bangkok. The May futures for the grade declined to ¥395 (Rs 218.46) from ¥ 405 a kg during the day session but then recovered partially to ¥399 (Rs 220.70) in the night session on the Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM).

Spot rates were (Rs/kg): RSS-4: 218.50 (222); RSS-5: 216.50 (220); ungraded: 213 (218); ISNR 20: 211 (212) and latex 60 per cent: 132 (133).
