Asian Rubber Futures Close Higher

Asian rubber prices ended Thursday slightly higher across the board, buoyed by general investor optimism.

In addition, natural-rubber futures on the Tokyo exchange received an extra boost as the yen continued to ease against the U.S. dollar.

A rise in Japanese stocks on the back of an overnight rally in equities helped support rubber prices. The Nikkei rose 0.9% to end at 19564.80, its best finish since the year's first session.

"As a result, investors have been buying back," noted Kaname Gokon of Okato Shoji in Tokyo.
