At the Multi Commodity Exchange, crude palm oil for delivery in September moved up by Rs 2.60, or 0.48 per cent to Rs 543.60 per 10 kg in business turnover of 247 lots.
Likewise, the oil for delivery in October contracts was trading higher by Rs 2.30, or 0.43 per cent to R 542.90 per 10 kg in 108 lots.
