KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian rubber market closes higher, lifted by the strong performance of the regional futures market and a weaker ringgit against the US dollar, a dealer says.

He said market sentiment yesterday was also boosted by optimism from China’s central bank measures and strong global manufacturing data.

“Further gains were capped by lingering worries about the rapid rise of Omicron cases worldwide,” he said.

The Japanese rubber futures rose yesterday, supported by a weaker yen against the US dollar and a rally in the Shanghai market, although lingering concerns over rising Covid-19 cases kept investors cautious.
