Edible oils improved after a rebound in Malaysian palm oil and domestic soya oil futures on Thursday. Talk of increase in tariffs and hopes of a lower-than-expected slowdown in Malaysian palm oil exports lifted the markets. A broker said due to higher sales in the resale market imported soya refined oil and palmolein dropped by Rs 3 and Rs 2 for 10 kg. Cottonseed refined oil declined by Rs 5 and rapeseed and mustard oil slipped by Rs 25 for 10 kg.

About 550-600 tonnes of palmolein were traded. Ruchi sold about 250 tonnes of palmolein for May delivery at Rs 660, Liberty sold about 200 tonnes at Rs 652-654, and resellers sold about 150 tonnes at Rs 650-652 for April delivery. Towards the end of the day in the physical market, Liberty quoted palmolein at Rs 663-664 for April, soya refined oil at Rs 730 and sunflower refined oil at Rs 735. Ruchi quoted palmolein at Rs 652-654, soya refined oil at Rs 721-725 and sunflower refined oil at Rs 730-735. Resellers offered palmolein at Rs 648-650. In Saurashtra and Rajkot, groundnut oil was Rs 1,860 (Rs 1,860) for a telia tin and Rs 1,220 (Rs 1,210) for loose (10 kg).

Malaysian crude palm oil's May contracts settled at 3,495 ringgit (3,500 ringgit) and June at 3,489 ringgit (3,489 ringgit) a tonne.

On the National Board of Trade in Indore, soya refined oil's May contracts closed at Rs 763.50 (Rs 758.50) and June at Rs 766.50 (Rs 762).
