- Natural rubber in the Indian market on Thursday took a brief hiatus from its three day successive decline.

RUBBER Sep NMCE
Pullback seen from 16580 was held near 16800 region in the previous session. The broad trend remains weak and any attempts to move higher are likely to find resistance near 16900-17050 regions and turn lower. Slippage past 16580 may see prices testing 16450-16370. However, it requires breaking the 200 week moving average 16370 convincingly to evolve into another major sell off. Meanwhile, successful attempts to sustain above 17050 may negate the bearish view for the day.
