Malaysian palm oil futures on Tuesday rose for a fifth straight day to close at a 10-year high, as it tracked a rally in crude and soyaoil futures. The benchmark palm oil contract for May delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange closed up 40 ringgit, or 1.03%, to 3,918 ringgit ($952.13) a tonne, its highest since Feb. 14, 2011.
Palm is rising on continued strength in soyaoil, but its rise is lagging those of its rivals because of weaker fundamentals, a Kuala Lumpur-based trader said.
Traders are awaiting official February supply and demand data, as well as cargo surveyor export data due on Wednesday.
