Palm snaps two-day losses

August 03, 2022: Malaysian palm oil futures firmed on Wednesday, after two sessions of steep losses, although the gains were capped by lower export tax reference prices in rival and top producer Indonesia.

The benchmark palm oil contract FCPOc3 for October delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange gained 55 ringgit, or 1.43%, to 3,896 ringgit ($874.52) a tonne during early trade.
