Edible oil prices continued to rise on Monday, taking cues from a strong Malaysian market. Imported soya refined oil increased Rs 5 and palmolein Rs 9.

Rapeseed oil rose Rs 5 and cotton oil by Rs 5 for 10 kg. Groundnut oil and sunflower oil were steady on lack of demand. In the ready market, volume was thin, as the market opened with a higher price gap. Only resale trade took place, traders said, adding that the market was steady. India's NBOT February soya oil futures touched high of Rs 671.20/10 kg, then sharply collapsed, tracking the Malaysian market. A wholesale trader said in the Mumbai market, 100-150 tonnes of palmolein resale were traded at Rs 595-597. About 1,200-1,500 tonnes of palmolein were traded for ready and forward delivery. Liberty was quoting palmolein at Rs 604-607 from Rs 615-618 and Ruchi's rates were Rs 605-610. They did not quote soya refined oil and sunflower oil on Monday.
