Kottayam , Jan. 20

COVERING groups and purchase agents took spot rubber to further highs on Friday. The market seemed to be reeling under short supply as RSS 4 appears to be heading towards its next target of Rs 80 a kg.

According to reports from Kochi, there were no quantum sellers even at higher levels and the inflow to the major marketing centres continued to be meagre.

At Bangkok spot, RSS 3 was quoted better at Rs 85.43 against Rs 83.55 a kg. The February futures for RSS 3 improved by Rs 1.73 to 228.2 yen (Rs 87.57) from 223.7 yen a kg at TOCOM.
