KUALA LUMPUR: The crude palm oil (CPO) futures contract on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives is likely to trend lower next week on profit-taking activities.
Interband Group of Companies senior palm oil trader Jim Teh said stocks are expected to remain high in Malaysia due to Indonesia’s lower Indonesian export prices.
"As such, the price movement next week is expected to confine between RM3,100 and RM3,300 per tonne,” he told Bernama.
Indonesia is trying to clear their high inventories by waiving its export levy, effective July 15 to Aug 31, 2022.
Meanwhile, palm oil trader David Ng expects futures prices to trade with a downside bias given the expectation of higher production and stock level ahead of the key crop report due to be released next week.
For the trading week just ended, Malaysian CPO futures were mostly lower, weighed by strong competition from lower Indonesian export prices and higher inventory concerns in the coming weeks.
According to CGS-CIMB Securities Sdn Bhd, Malaysia’s CPO output is expected to grow by 2.8 per cent month-on-month (m-o-m) and 4.3 per cent year-on-year to 1.59 million tonnes in July 2022.,
