Spot rubber regained strength on Monday. The market opened weak but bounced back later on covering purchases at lower levels as most traders expect a moderate recovery in prices during the days ahead. There were certain enquiries from the non tyre sector also and the commodity made all-round gains amidst comparatively better volumes.
