“We locate support at RM4,400 per tonne and resistance at RM4,580 per tonne, ” he told Bernama.

Meanwhile, Singapore-based Palm Oil Analytics owner and co-founder Dr Sathia Varqa said concerns over export demand to India also weighed on market sentiment as more states imposed restrictions and curbing export demand.
