Asian rubber prices ended Tuesday mixed with the Shanghai Futures Exchange contract breaching 19,000 yuan ($2,755) a metric ton, while the Japanese contract ended the session lower.
The Tokyo benchmark contract likely came under some pressure on the stabilization of the yen and weakness in the Nikkei. Japanese stocks declined Tuesday, halting their recent ascent after this month's U.S. presidential election, as the market's focus shifted to the uncertainty over U.S. policy formation and European political stability.
However, rubber contracts on the Shanghai Futures Exchange continued to be buoyed by speculation in the Chinese markets.
