Spot rubber finished firm on Friday. RSS 4 improved to Rs.130.50 (130.00) and Rs.130.00 (129.50) per kg respectively according to the Rubber Board. The grade firmed up to Rs.126.00 (125.50) per kg as quoted by the dealers. The market regained strength on covering purchases and sheet rubber hit an intraday high of Rs.131.00 a kg during late trading hours.

“The tyre makers preferred to keep a very low profile though they were visibly active in the local trading houses since a couple of days. We expect their volumes to increase if the international indices continue to remain bullish in the days ahead,” a trader said
