Asian physical rubber prices are little changed with prices amid the low-production season.


Prices of Thai field latex in particular, are gaining due to slow arrivals, says IRCo chief executive Yium Tavarolit in a note; “supply tightness of natural rubber in Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia currently lends support to prices on physical rubber markets in Asia,” he adds.


Indonesia’s SIR20 changes hands around $1,910/ton, FOB, for May shipment from Palembang.
