The USD/MYR pair is an attractive alternative currency option to trade. This is because Malaysia is one of the countries in Southeast Asia with a strong economy due to its abundant natural resources, such as CPO, crude oil, and rubber.
CPOTR price fell 9.18% to Rp 18440/Kg at the close of trading last week. Prices for CPO decreased for a full week in the third week of June, triggered by the sentiment that more Indonesian CPO exporters were getting export approvals, in addition, the Indonesian government issued an export acceleration policy that took effect on June 13, 2022. This makes the supply of CPO from Indonesia to the global market is increasing.
The movement of ICDX oil prices was observed to have strengthened almost 3% in a week, supported by tight supply amid rising demand. On the supply side, the impact of the EU embargo has the potential to reduce Russian oil production to further decline when the ban begins. From the demand side, the optimism that China's economy would recover also boosted the demand for fuel from the world's biggest oil importer.
USD/RUB is an alternative currency option that can be traded, this is because Russia is one of the market leaders for the European Union and several other countries in various commodity sectors such as oil, natural gas, precious metals to plantation commodities such as wheat. Russia is also the third largest producer in the world, after the US and Saudi Arabia for crude oil.
ICDX tin prices nearing the close of May were seen moving steadily close to the level of $40,000 per tonne in line with the China plan to lift the Covid curb in the financial hub city of Shanghai from June 1. China is the world's first largest producer and consumer of tin, and the city of Shanghai itself ranks first as the largest contributor to China's economy.
